Thanks to Roman Holowinsky

A huge thank you goes out to my friend and OSU STEAM Factory colleague Roman Holowinsky. I’m not only thankful for his generous donation to the Brownie In Motion campaign but also for his ongoing enthusiasm, and encouragement. Without Roman’s sense of long-term vision, neither the OSU STEAM Factory nor the Brownie In Motion project would exist as we know them today.

For those of you not familiar with The Steam Factory, our purpose is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration in the OSU community across the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. To disseminate research, technology and pedagogy through public interaction and to create new ways in which our work can impact a broader audience. Brownie In Motion was actually constructed  with budgetary support from an Outreach and Engagement Grant that the STEAM Factory wrote together.

It’s not too late to contribute to the indiegogo campaign! There are 8 hours left so quickly click your way over to  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/brownie-in-motion/contributions/new and donate now!

Brownie In Motion visits the Ohio Camera Collectors Society

 

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in the Ohio Camera Collectors Society (OCCS) Show and Sale on Saturday, May 17 at the Aladdin Shrine Center.  The club’s president, Daniel Hausman, has been following the camera obscura project since the very beginning and was kind enough to invite Brownie In Motion to their event.

Little did I know,  the Kodak Brownie Target Six-16 camera  holds a special place in the hearts of OCCS members, who, in the year 2000, designed and produced a Millennium edition of this camera. Only 100 of these commemorative cameras exist, which honor the 100th anniversary of the Brownie and the start of the new millennium.
