Who doesn’t enjoy getting some nice fresh 3D prints back? I designed some custom clips to hold the various sample collectors and components to the main body, which I also started cutting out today.

I also made the prototype sweat collector which will go under the outfit next to the skin. This will soak up the sweat of the wearer, who will be a local so the content of their sweat will be inherent to the city, affected by their diet for example. This sweat will then be crystallised into a unique artefact by the amazing Alice Potts.

I used my favourite recycled PET felt to construct the ‘tongue tail’ that will lick across the floor of the city, gathering bio-organisms for culturing.

It was a big day for Steph, who has finally decided the route we will be taking on the test drive on Monday, 6.5 hours, come what may… and it looks like it may be a lot of snow. Bring it on.
