Working with Davin Huston as a guest artist was an excellent experience. As a fellow electrician, maker, tinker and fixer, it was amazing to see kindred spirit join the team to help us solve some of our hardest problems.
Davin is an Assistant Professor of Practice at Purdue University in the School of Engineering Technology, Purdue Polytechnic, as well as in the Department of Theatre. Davin was kind enough to be involved early in the process through Slack and Skype. When we had to switch directions on our eye control, he was the one who shinned the light down the Raspberry Pi path. When we found out that the sources, I choose weren’t bright enough, he was the one who came up with the plan to fix it with LED tape.
It was great to work so closely with someone who is a master in their field and in the skill of troubleshooting. While I learned a lot from Davin while he was in the trenches with us, the most important lesson was how to have such an amazing attitude under pressure. And pressure was the one thing we had a surplus of.
I look forward to the possibility of working with him in the future on another crazy project!
Cheers to you Davin!
