Textube

     

The textube is a textured tube that printed as a hollow object. It looks much heavier than it is. Sort of the opposite of my fatness. I look lighter than I am and I look fat so it’s not good at all. The printed texture is reminiscent of stucco or a drippy glaze on a clay pot. Of course the process of creating the texture is nothing like the skill and hard work necessary to get stucco or a clay pot to have such an intricate texture. Once again the machine and the robot did most of the work. I merely thought about how to do it for a minute, pressed a few buttons and like magic (it’s not at all like magic) there was a finished object in the world.
