Each week we chat about the tools of the trade with one outstanding creative to find out exactly how they do what they do. The questions are always the same, the answers, not so much. This week: Korakrit. Click here for more User Preferences Tech Q&As.
The Creators Project: Who are you and what do you do?
Korakrit Arunanondchai: I am an artist based in Bangkok and New York.
What hardware do you use?
Just about everything you can find in a woodshop, metal shop, art supply store, and flea markets in Thailand. Also a lot of digitally printed fabric.
What software do you use?
Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Google SketchUp.
Haywain Remix (Inverse+Inverse)—acrylic on computer print on canvas.
If money were no object, how would you change your current setup?
I would get a really fast computer for image processing, a nicer video camera, a good audio system, and a few projectors. I really want to try 3D projections.
What fantasy piece of technology would you like to see invented?
A Wii remote connected to a cross between Photoshop and CAD, connected to a huge color rapid prototyping machine, so I can just draw whatever I want in space and have it printed out for me. (Does something like this exist already?)
Is there any piece of technology that inspired you to take the path you did?
Microsoft Paint made me the painter I am today.
What’s your favourite relic piece of technology from your childhood?
The original Game Boy.
