Mind Out | Project Longarm

Mattias Jones is based in Sheffield and towards the end of 2012, as part of The Festival of the Mind, he developed with a small team of technicians, coders and mathematicians a drawing system and put it to work. The robots drew one line pattern solutions, the shortest line possible, derived from theories on how bees fly from flower to flower. It ended up covering three walls and the floor of a twenty foot cube in one unbroken line. The fascinating process can be seen in the video above.

Mattias is featured in the current issue of NowThen which we have featured previously on here. NowThen is a Sheffield based arts and culture magazine, but they have also recently launched a Manchester version.

 

Frank – The movie

Frank Sidebottom the movie? Check. Starring Michael Fassbender? Check. As Frank would say “Fantastic!”. This all sounds very intriguing, and this is the first image from the film, currently shooting in New Mexico and being produced by Film 4, the BFI and the Irish Film Board.

The script is a fictional story of Frank on tour as the leader of an indie band. Until we can get an interview with Little Frank, here is Frank in action from yesteryear.
