Ok, so a little late-night-time-alone-reflection to sum things up. So fuck it, we didn’t manage to get it to work for the major part of the expo, but I’m so proud of what we have achieved during these five weeks that “frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn”. Our theories about this sudden malfunctioning are 1) the microcontroller (possibly the memory?) burned out during set-up/testing. 2) something went wrong with the prototype during transport. 3) both.
We spent hours troubleshooting onsite, until we realized that the problem was not mendable. Learning by failing. Now I’m just trying to cope with the fact that the world might never see LU/OX MESH in all it’s tremendous glory and also to remind myself that the most important thing about this project was not the end product, but the journey and the learnings on the way. I think it’s working. Oh well, we screened a nice japanese movie instead and then I got shitfaced on the party and apparently insulted a taxi-driver. C’est la vie!
I’m checking out!
