The 20 foot shipping container arrives at James Street.
It started rather early on Thursday for the team at How We Create and Palamont: art in manufacturing. The 20 foot shipping container, custom fitted with a rotational moulding machine, arrived at 5.30am. They had spent the previous week fitting it out, and had commissioned local Graffiti Artist John Ryder (through Jugglers Art Space Inc), to adorn the container envelope. Nice!
Container moved into its final position.
With the container placed the boys set about prepping and test running the machine.
Matthew Griffith (Production Manager) and Jason Brown (Logistics Manager) from Palamont, prep the machine and fit the tooling.
Matt fits Tool 01 to the rotational arm.
You spin me right round baby…
For Brisbane Saturday Indesign How We Create and Palamont made (live on site) mini planters designed by Australian Designers Andrew Berry and Helen Kontouris, as well as Alexander Lotersztain’s new Rock cup. These were given to visitors on the day. The planters came with special herb seeds and bedding mix to give them a good start.
Mini Planters and Rock Cups made live on site throughout the day.
The process was utterly mesmerizing. People from different fields and backgrounds always become entranced with the process and want to know more. Visitors waiting patiently for their mini watched the process, listened to tunes, caught up on design news and had a few awesome hotdogs!
Crowd waiting patiently for their pop tart like Minis!
Congratulations How We Create and Palamont: art in manufacturing for such an awesome event and sharing the joy of manufacturing! Great photos by George Dedic from How We Create and Palamont.
