This blog is the work of Melissa Cameron. She is jewellery artist and lapsed interior architect who moonlights as a photographer, mostly out of necessity.*
All posts are written by Melissa, with quotes as noted. The texts presented in the Conference Papers and Symposia sections were written for delivery by Melissa at the events as indicated in each introduction, and are collected here for reference. The monthly ‘Deadlines’ posts (collected in the Monthly Deadlines Calendar page as shown in the main toolbar) are written from content collected from a variety of sources, and will often contain text taken straight from the linked page. The deadlines listed each month are given here as a guide only and so readers who use this information do so at their own risk.
As mentioned, photography is also by Melissa. Some, including those images featured on invitation cards (reprinted with permission), are by others, who retain all copyright.
Melissa’s website with CV, biography, statement, upcoming events, stockists (in the Contact section) and many, many more images, visits the more important aspects of her practice and is updated regularly.
In all her website endeavours (including the Heat Exchange Blog) she is radically outperformed by the ubiquitous TurboNerd, who codes with unparallelled verve and speed, and who kindly makes the architecture more or less operable by Melissa to ensure her frequent updates.
Her favorite tool is a tie between AutoCad LT 2013 and her 100mm Vallorbe saw frame combined with 6/0 Glardon Vallorbe blades. To ensure that these tools sing in harmony she also needs 0.5mm drill bits (most often Busch) and her drill press (Proxxon), as well as stainless steel cable, in copious quantities.
Like all bloggists, she loves to receive comments, either on the site, via twitter or via email to: blog at melissa cameron dot net.
* To that end she is helped immensely by her wonderful Leica D-LUX 4, and two 6-bulb studio lamps that feature natural daylight CFL lamps against a roll of photo glossy paper, though her studio shots also feature her telephone camera, presently an iPhone 6.
