Before: Confederate monuments / After: Buskers!. . I made 60-ish isometric drawings to help illustrate the potential of underutilized sites in various communities for Reimagining the Civic Commons—a group of cities that are improving their public spaces. . Shown here: Reading Viaduct and Centennial Commons in Philly, Cossitt Library in Memphis, Fourth Bluff in Memphis, and Detroit’s Block Party building.. . Link in profile for the rest of them. (Thanks @bryanboyer for architecting and art-directing)
I’ll be giving a talk about This Book is a Planetarium (and other new experiments/ design work) at the 18th street Books of Wonder this Sunday, 1-3pm. It’s free and potentially interesting to both adults and children! . .Order of events: 1-1:30 • I show slides and talk a lot 1:30-2 • Q & A 2-3 • Signing books and/or whatever else we decide to do!
Ah, I *finally* solved a problem that has long annoyed me with #thisbookisacamera ! . . There’s a spacer that you’re encouraged to manually turn down (the spacer makes the camera body more rigid, so the focal length is consistent for the full expanse of the film.) However, it’s really easy to forget to disengage it and essentially “smoosh” the thing when closing the book. . . I’ve now added a proper table-flip gesture to a tab, so the spacer is automatically-disengaged each time the book closes.
Hi NYC, Come this Sunday (3-5pm) to the 84th St Books of Wonder and make a pop-up paper “speaker” for your phone! Workshop is intended for kids, but I’ll also be talking about pop-up books, signing copies of This Book is a Planetarium, etc. (so: all are welcome) *************************************************** I’ve made 15 kits, so if you’re certain you’re attending, RSVP in advance: 212.989.1804 (and plan to hit the big planetarium at AMNH afterward—it’s only a few blocks away.)
Been stuck in bed with a fever for days, so I finished reading “An Eames Anthology.” Some of my favorite parts: . . -The Do-Nothing (“mankind’s first solar-powered toy”, 1958) - Initial sketch for the film, The Powers of 10 - Tiny model of the Mathematica exhibition - Mathematica’s giant Möbius strip . - Various quotes and passages . (I put more in Stories too. This is SO good.)
