Gaining Momentum

with 8 comments

good_fast_cheap

Another Lost Project – The Quantitative and Qualitative Measuring Devices – are gaining a little momentum. A few of these Good Fast Cheap Triangles will be offered for ‘uesr testing’ soon. More drawings and devices to come.

As an update. Julian writes more intelligently about the conversations around these devices and drawings. His fine articulation can be found here http://www.nearfuturelaboratory.com/2009/05/18/measuring-the-immeasurable/

Thanks to Jim and Shawn for the spectacular images of the Birdhouses now hanging in Utah, somewhere near Panguitch. Raphael http://grignani.org/ started a Flickr Group http://www.flickr.com/groups/1075724@N23/ where some of the images and locations of the Bird Houses are now found. A new batch of houses will be out soon, which means an new list. So if you fancy one, and have a good spot in mind. Drop me a line.

Quantifying & Qualifying Measurement Devices No.1 & No.2

Another Lost Project may well come to something beyond a drawing.┬áThe illustrations above and below are the evolution of the Measuring Device Series of drawings. Currently two accurate – nonsense – measuring devices are about to be made.

Bird on a Wire

with one comment

A Lost project can sometimes gain enough momentum to exist beyond the covers of my sketchbook. This hasn’t happened that often recently. But it seems that the Bird on a Wire Houses have this momentum. To begin with, there are just 12 pairs of houses on their way to Tokyo, Sydney, SanFrancisco, Toronto, Seattle, Builth Wells, Brighton, Helsinki, Buenos Aires, Panguitch Lake & Cardiff. I look forward to seeing where they land.
