Solving Problems Through Innovation and Trades

What do engineers, mechanics, artists, and musicians have in common? Innovation! They are all people who have learned to take their imagination and know how to create new buildings, machines, sculptures, and music, and more.

Hackerspace is an organization of like minded individuals who come together for the common good. It is an organization made up of engineers, mechanics, artists and musicians and others who work together to create. It is like a mastermind group of people that come together with ideas and help each other take those ideas and make things happen. They share tools and skills to help each other with whatever concept brought to the table.

I might have an idea, but you may know how to take that idea and help me bring it into reality. We work together to solve the problem and find a solution that will work. I may be strong in coming up with concepts but you might know the mechanics of how to make that concept work. Together we make a dynamic team. This is how it is in Hackerspace. They provide the support by providing the tools to get the job done. Tools such as a 3D printer. A 3D printer costs about $3,000 but if provided by the group all can use it for a fraction of the cost. There is power in numbers and where like minded individuals come together the power is unstoppable. 

What concepts and ideas do you have. Are you finding it hard to have the money and means to take your concept from idea to reality? You can find Hackerspace in Austin, Texas. Get the help of others to get the job done. Read more in the following article by Kelsey Jukam:

Are You An Artist? There is a Vocational Job For You

One of the late and great artists died this month. His name was Ray Harryhausen. He was a pioneer special- effects artist that paved the way for the great special effects we experience today in the movies. He used his artistry not only to make a good living in Hollywood, but also to create a new way to enjoy the movies. He inspired people like George Lucas of “Star Wars”, Peter Jackson of “The Lord of the Rings”, and James Cameron.

Ray created animation not by drawing pictures but by the tedious detail of moving small figurines and photographing the figurines in each new pose in a process called stop-motion animation. This was painstaking work that required a huge amount of patience and attention to detail. The pictures taken of each change of pose were spliced together to create the appearance of fluid motion in film.

Ray was a genius and an innovator for whom all of modern movies with their special effects owe a debt of gratitude. Billions of dollars have been made due to the amazement of special effects in the movies.

Are you an artist? How can you use your art to bring about change? Would you desire to work in the movies creating special effects or do you have a whole new invention in innovation to share with us using your artistic abilities.
