I love the work Marius Watz has been producing as MakerBot artist-in-residence. I love even more the idea of a maker business being able to afford to sponsor an A-I-R! I wonder if, one day, we’ll see successful maker organizations like hackerspaces routinely sponsoring their own artist?

I am very excited to be the first ever MakerBot artist-in-residence. I will be testing the MakerBot as a means to prototype parametrically modeled objects, building geometries in Processing and outputting them as STL files.

Models will be posted for download on Thingiverse: thingiverse.com/watz.

Thanks to Bre Pettis and the whole MakerBot crew for the invitation and the generous support!
