Cory Hunter is creating High-Voltage Artwork

My name is Cory Hunter, I am an artist and electrical engineering student from Miami, Florida. For the past 6 years I have been working on one project, my passion, the use of high-voltage electricity to make artwork.

I am in school to learn more about my craft, and better understand how I can make a positive impact on the world. I believe that my artwork is leading in this direction, that every painting, every pair of sunglasses, is an experiment teaching me more about High-voltage electricity.

"But who cares about High-Voltage?" I think the key to a sustainable future is education. So I use my live painting to interact with different audiences who may not have had the opportunity to explore Science that makes you say "wooooow"... where wonder is the spirit of innovation. I also think the Energy problems the world faces lie in how we generate power, and how it is transmitted. This all depends on High-voltage. I'm not going to say my art will solve these issues, but I think we need to look to nature for the answers.

So how will your support help? The sunglasses and paintings I sell pay my rent, but all extra cash goes to tuition or reinvestment. With your support I will GUARANTEE research into sunglass manufacturing, with full US production as my goal. I will develop new power supplies so I can easily travel with my process to new audiences. Finally, I will expand my process to larger scales, specifically wall Murals.

I understand that for a lot of us money is tight and the future is uncertain, but I'm not just asking for a financial contribution, I am asking for peers, colleagues, and interested patrons who are willing to invest in me. I will not stop, I will not waiver, these past 6 years are only the beginning. Together we can make a real difference. Thank you for your time!

You will have first pick at any new prototypes or art created. I will give you any of the rewards monthly offered to the other price levels.
But most importantly, you give me a time and place and I will bring my gear to do a live show for you

Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
I have recently bought a laser cutter so that I can make all of the wooden temples for my sunglasses domestically. My two prototypes functioned well, but like other wood-laminate frames the issue was in strength and durability. If this goal is met I can redistribute my savings from Tuition Spending to research and development. I already have carbon fiber and am in the process of testing, but the goal here is to make wood sunglasses that are stronger, lighter, and more durable than ANY other material in the market. This will take time, and as we all know, Time is money.
