The Adventures of Victor and the FLG!

We were super lucky to have a fabrication rockstar on our crew this past couple of months. Vic is an artist from Adelaide who makes sculptures that feature mechanisms and automata, not a far cry from what we do. He came over in June to support Xylophage’s build, and he kept a blog of his adventures in the metal shop.

His posts are really thorough and fun to read, and they give a great idea of the problem solving and collaboration that constitutes the big art production experience.

His story begins, “Sara, who was doing some welding at the time, broke the ice — ‘So, what can you do?’ In a matter of minutes I was grinding some welds back and then disassembling the root substructure.”


Vic hard at work

We miss you already, Vic! Thanks so much for all your excellent input and hard work!
