Much as this man needs no introduction, I shall do it all the same – for the uninitiated!
It takes someone special to render the ordinary – extraordinary! And that’s just what cardboard boy-wonder – Bartholomew Ting does best! Graduating from business and gravitating to the creative arts, Bart (in short) has made quite a name for himself in cardboard architecture! Back in 2012, some of his works were featured in Science Centre’s maiden Mini-Maker Faire in 2012.
Since then, his installations have made waves in various public spaces.
Mouth-watering isn’t it? If that doesn’t whet your appetite for more, I honestly don’t know what else will. So if you’re hankering for some tinkering, catch the cardboard guru in the flesh! Bart plans to organise a number of Cardboard Architecture workshops from 24-26 Oct 2014 at the upcoming Maritime RobotX Challenge at The Float @ Marina Bay.
Come 24-26 October 2014, university students, robotics experts and creative artists from all over the world will convene in Singapore for the inaugural Maritime RobotX Challenge to showcase their robotics prowess, and wow visitors with ingenious showcases. The world’s first Maritime RobotX Challenge is set to take place in Singapore at The Float @ Marina Bay from 24 to 26 October 2014. The first of this biennial event comprises an international university maritime robotics competition, and a science and technology showcase. Organised by National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Engineering, Science Centre Singapore (SCS), and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Foundation, the three-day event aims to provide an experiential science and engineering learning platform, for more than 5,000 visitors!
