Grey Water Treatment in Philly Farms

April 12, 2009

As part of our Farm Philly Project, my group and I researched and developed concepts for the treatment and recycling of grey water for use in urban farms.

We mapped out some information we learned from research and prototyping until we reached a well developed idea that we confidently could say will work out beneficially.

After meeting our client, Mill Creek Urban Farm, we discussed the project with them, to see exactly what they wanted.  We returned to the studio and began brainstorming and sketching out the kinks to seamlessly integrate our system into their existing sink plumbing system on site.

Here’s the model of our design integrated into their site:

As a class, we’re taking all of the content we worked on and are currently working on for our Philly Urban Farming project.  All of the groups and their respective members have access to posting and editing on the site, and we’re going to try to establish ourselves in the urban farming world, more specifically, the Philly urban farming world.

Final Flatware

April 3, 2009

It’s here, I received my latest prototypes this morning after glassblowing.  After classes tonight I spent a few hours forming each spoon and fork and preparing them for the final display.

I uploaded a few shots I took during the process, and as always, let me know what you think.

Flatware Photoshoot

March 30, 2009

Today my friend Kamilah helped me with getting some context shots of Phillyware in action.  We used the bright green colors in the salad to contrast the black fork.  I’m planning on taking a lot more photos once the final models arrive, but for now I really wanted to just get a few context photos.

Flatware Uploaded to Ponoko Showroom

March 28, 2009

Although I’m waiting on my final cuts to be sent back to me so I can assemble and photograph them, I uploaded Phillyware to Ponoko’s showroom.  For now, I’m displaying one photo and one rendering, but once the final design is received and assembled, I’ll update the photos.  The price is likely to change, I was just eager to see the process in getting something up and sellable.

A 1:00 Glimpse of My Day

March 25, 2009

Although it took me a while to get my hands on something to record video with, creating this 1:00 long video taught me a lot.  In terms of technique, I learned Final Cut Pro, mostly thanks to Chris and Tom.  I also now understand the process of editing videos better, and I have a better appreciation for the amount of time it takes to create a seamless sequence of video.

I had fun in the process, check out the rest of our class and their videos here
