How did you first find Milwaukee Makerspace?
I forget how I first heard of it. I made several trips to the space when it was in the complex off Oklahoma Avenue.
Why did you decide to join?
A big factor was I could afford the dues after the big change. I think of myself as a life-long maker, although I tended to use the older term, craftsman. I joined because I wanted to explore.
What do you do at Milwaukee Makerspace?
Just now, I’ve been using the space to prepare for an upcoming exhibit. I make paintings and things you might call sculpture.
What would you like to tell others about Milwaukee Makerspace?
In my opinion, it is a very good and interesting make. It’s most valuable asset is the variety and depth of knowledge and skill to be found amongst the members.
What do you plan to work on in the next few weeks?
Once I’m done with the exhibit, I want to:
1. take advantage of the opportunities the space offers to expand the tools and technologies I can use in my work.
2. I wish to work on objects that make interesting sounds that can be “played” by the user’s movement.
3. I want to work on a projector capable of producing large scale lighting effects.
