Ever since I was small, I’ve always had a fascination with electronics. I can remember dismantling my Oscar Goldman play set (from “The Six Million Dollar Man” series) and modding out his desk alarm and using it as my personal door alarm. My fascination became buried by life’s responsibilities, so it wasn’t until a few summers ago that my interest was sparked again by the bending movement.
Bending is essentially taking electronics and adding dials and switches to create new results. This works especially great on old toys!
As luck would have it, the father of bending happens to live in Cincinnati and was offering a course. I was lucky enough to spend a few days with Reed Ghazala and explore his world of electronic alchemy. The Incantor shirt is a tribute to Reed’s bend of the Speak & Math.
The Incantor shirt is available online at Wire & Twine.
Back to bending!
