2020 – Week 12

Well Coronavirus continues to ravage the world. With gatherings over 100 people banned, it looks like Cooroy Fusion Festival, where I was going to be doing a VR demo, is cancelled.

So I join the ranks of artists who’ve lost a gig, thanks to this most current of plagues. How’s that for being “relevant to the times”?

In other news, I’ve been getting quotes for sheet steel, and I think I’ve cracked the solution – a supplier, who’ll hopefully provide a sheet that’s thick enough to weld easily, but thin enough to not be 5x the price of the framing steel.

I’ve started constructing all the equipment I bought in the last few weeks – first the welding bench – an IKEA-directions product it was not.
