I made a few documentation videos outlining Leonard at this point. The three videos are as follows:
1. Putting Everything Together: Shawn tries on Leonard and I describe the next steps we will take to make Leonard wearable
2. Leonard's Head: I describe construction of the head
3. Leonard's Jaw: I describe construction of the jaw
I also added a few pictures since that seems to me a major theme.

Eye Issues: This is what it looks like when the Lycra pulls. I had this problem from over stuffing or not stuffing the eye socket enough. As you can see the whit Lycra ends up pulling in toward the eye and loosing its circular shape:
Just to give you a preview for the next blog, I am almost done adding the components of the costume that will make Leonard wearable. Hopefully you will see the costume completed and worn with out the aid of several hands holding things. Also, there has been a big twist in the Leonard plot, which I will describe next time - so keep your eyes peeled.
My semester is almost over. It is my goal to have the costume completed before the semester is done. Then, I will be hiding in a dark room with a few fellow collaborators (namely Stjepan and Christopher) and we will be developing the sounds for the costume. All good stuff.

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.
We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary community interacting and embedded unstablelandscape.
