Situationist Drawing Device

“The Situationist Drawing Device is a backpack-sized mechanism for recording the experience of landscape. Designed by Ji Soo Han and Paul Ornsby, and operating by way of mirrors, the Device “records a journey taken in an altered state of perception through drawing.” It is an “intermediary and interpretative tool,” the designers add, one that stands between the human body and the landscape it exists within and explores.” [via]

The Surprising Math of Cities and Corporations

Physicist Geoffrey West has found that simple, mathematical laws govern the properties of cities — that wealth, crime rate, walking speed and many other aspects of a city can be deduced from a single number: the city’s population. In this mind-bending talk he shows how it works and how similar laws hold for organisms and corporations.

Föhnseher (Seer of Warm Winds)

Föhnseher (Seer of Warm Winds) by Julian Oliver — Modified Sanyo television, software, hardware (2011):

Other people’s phones, laptops and tablet computers all become broadcast stations for this device, replacing the forgotten television towers of old.

The name föhnseher derives from fernseher, the German word for television, and the föhn, a strange warm wind known to the south of Germany. The words have a very similar pronunciation. Continue reading

Networking with Andrew Norman Wilson

Nicholas O’Brien wrote: “Andrew Norman Wilson and I had a chance to flesh out some of the strategies that he employs in a webinar video conference that spanned several weeks of intensive workshopping on ideas circulating around digital/ virtual labor, how to stabilize and exist in permanent transience, and how to make actual the metaphoric states that usually occur in online environments. Through our conversation and networking session, we highlighted some key issues concerning how one works within network space can reveal variable points of access and distribution to creative cultural practices.” More here.
