OOM Stats and Map 50% Completed

So here we are, I'm half way. 10 out of 20 levels completed . The project starts to get very interesting now as the money starts to escalate fast and therfor the artworks will in theory get exponentially more elaborate.

Im not sure how much longer I can keep making one piece at a time there will be a time when I'll have to start making multiples but for now I'm sticking to my guns.

I have had so much positive feedback about this project so thank you to everyone who has followed it and taken part.. Please tell your friends they could become a part of this and invest in some interesting creations that one day may be worth many times what they are being sold for here....

LEVEL10 Strobe Gun

I want to introduce you to Alex Relph who is a friend from London who now lives in Frome, Wiltshire. Alex has a metalwork workshop/studio where he makes bespoke metal sculptures, furniture and well anything you require as long as its, well, metal. I needed his help converting the strobe that I had for Level 10. As you remember the strobe needed to be focused on the Holographic Zoetrope rather than lighting the whole room.

We started by taking a sheet of thin steel and cutting it which produced a nice fireworks display.

Then he bent it into shape.

He then riveted a base plate

and we screwed it to the strobe. I was happy and  In return I gave Alex a copy of the Holotronica album in CD/DVD format with a couple of pairs of anaglyph 3D glasses. he was happy with this and he thought it was amazing after seeing it. The album btw official release is April 14th. This blog is becoming a vehicle for plugging the album, I didn't intend this its just become a happy accident.

I sprayed the strobe black and inserted a fresnel lense in the front. I cut the lense from a reading magnifying glass that I bought while with Seth in Brighton.

I have dropped off the strobe with Seth and I look forward to see a photo of it set up in situe. Ill post that when I get it.

You can check Alex Relph's work out on his website, he's very good.
