Marks Algorithm

In previous conversations on Maker, the algorithm that calculates our degree mark has been highlighted. Our degree classification comes from all three marks across Subject, Field, and Constellation which all represent 40 credits. However, two keep their full value and one is cut in half as only the top 100 are needed. So mathematically it…

The Catalogue

With the catalog now in the exhibition last Friday it is exciting to see the maker collective altogether despite everything that has happened through the year. I really like the layout of the catalog and the imagery highlighting the important aspects of the exhibition work. I have noticed and I am not sure why that…

Craft in the Bay to my understanding introduces two new members yearly and has built quite a variety in the…

Gesamtkunstwerk John Edmark

Looking back im glad I stuck with the child’s lamp idea as I believe and the feedback did say there is potential but the errors and quality presented…
