Progress on the Luna Park #3DPrinted Model

Long time no see and Greetings from Coney Island! I’ve been busy working, doing college visits with my daughter and trying to keep the project moving ahead just a little bit every day. My 3D printers have been busy and I’m still keeping hours doing portraits in Coney Island every Saturday from 12-5pm.

A couple pieces of news-
The Luna Park project installation is confirmed- it will be going up in the Coney Island Museum as soon as it reopens after the building’s HVAC project completes. This was supposed to be April 1, but may be pushed back depending on the construction progress. I currently have two printers offline, so a few extra weeks sounds good to me! At any rate I will continue to build out the model throughout the season. I will let you know as son as I have concrete dates!

The other big news today was that Steven Heller wrote a beautiful piece about the project for the Atlantic, which just went live:

I’ve been holding back the images from my wife Laure’s recent photo shoot until after the article came out, so here’s a glimpse into the current state of things. Next up I will be printing the balconies along the boardwalk and modeling the two side towers.
