Project history

Connor, technician manager of Kyoto Makers Garage, has always been fond of art and print making. Called the “3D-printer guy” in Kyoto where he arrived 6 years ago, Connor got introduced to the well-known Japanese artist Yamashita Kohei.

2 months ago, this latter, preparing an exhibition in Kyoto for mi-November, offered Connor to work jointly on his masterpiece.

How does he interact with the makerspace?

Yamashita and Connor mainly use the 3D printer to create their work-of-art. The project requires 4 stepper motors, 4 Arduino and 4 stepper drivers.

What’s next?

After the exhibition planned mid-November, Connor would like to keep on working with this artist on something new. Mixing art with technology is something he wants to develop.
