I know a group of very smart people who sit in an attic and invent the future. A cross between a college study room and the bridge of a Klingon vessel, NYC Resistor is freakin’ awesome. This group of programmers, hackers, artists and inventors come together nightly to create all types of code, gizmos, artworks and functional whiz-bangs.
I came across them through my art, looking for a new way to make topographical low relief paintings. I went there seeking a guy named Herbert Hoover (yes, real name) and ended up befriending another really nice guy and smartypants named Justin Day. They didn’t have quite what I wanted, a way to “build” 3D paintings but what they did have was a laser!
