Eros & Thanatos, 75 x 68 inches, 2008

Eros & Thanatos, detail

Kako Uedo makes incredibly detailed images from paper using only a knife. Her work is intricate and the paper finely worked to create a beautiful and fascinating view of nature. Her primary preoccupation is with organic beings from insects to reptiles to the human body. She states that she is interested in how these organic beings “are born out of nature but [are] constantly being influenced and modified by culture. And the line between culture and nature is always shifting depending on the time and where one is.”

The use of black and white is a good choice for this journey in that it expresses form in greatest contrast. Accentuating a visual, graphic contrast as well as a contrast of life and death in nature as in Eros & Thanatos. It is a pleasant surprise to find that some of these works are not flat and when viewed in person, they are three dimensional and layered. They come to life. Butterflies are feeding and bugs crawling, almost like a strange anomaly has occurred whereby all of these creatures have come together for a fleeting moment in time to express the idea of life and death.

H Κέικο Ουέντο φτιάχνει απίστευτα λεπτομερή εικόνες από χαρτί χρησιμοποιώντας μόνο ένα κοπίδι. Η δουλειά της είναι περίπλοκη και το χρτί λεπτά δουλεμένο να δημιουυργεί  μία όμορφη και συναρπαστική άποψη της φύσης. Η κυρίως ενασχόλησή της είναι με οργανικά όντα από έντομα μέχρι ερπετά μέχρι το ανθρώπινο σώμα. Δηλώνει πως ενδιφέρεται με το πως αυτά τα οργανικά όντα “γεννιούνται από τη φύση μα συνεχώς επηρεάζονται και μεταβάλονται από την κουλτούρα. Και η γραμμή μεταξύ της κουλτούρας και της φύσης πάντα μετατοπίζεται εξαρτώμενα από τον χρόνο και το που είναι κανείς.”

Η χρήση του μαύρου και λευκού είναι καλή επιλογή για αυτό το ταξίδι μιας και αποδίδει μορφή με την μεγαλύτερη αντίθεση. Τονίζοντας μία οπτική, γραφική αντίθεση καθώς και την αντίθεση μεταξύ ζωής και θανάτου στη φύση όπως στο έργο της “Έρως & Θάνατος”. Είναι μία ευχάριστη έκλπηξη να βρεις πως μερικά από τα έργα της δεν είναι επίπεδα όταν τα κοιτάς αυτοπροσώπως, είναι τρισδιάστατα και με επίπεδα. Ζωντανεύουν. Οι πεταλούδες τρώνε και τα ζουζούνια έρπονται, σχεδόν σαν μία περίεργη ανωμαλία έχει συμβεί όπου όλα αυτά τα πλάσματα έχουν μαζευτεί για μία φευγαλαία στιγμή στο χρόνο για να εκφράσουν την ιδέα της ζωής και του θανάτου.

There will for a long time be a need for disposable tableware. Whether you like it or not, for convenience, people like to use it. Paper plates as a general category, although biodegradable, are made from paper pulp which is made from wood. Wasara, a Japanese company has developed not only a beautiful but also a more ecologically friendly alternative. They have designed and manufacture a range of plates, trays and cups made from reed pulp and bagasse which is the waste created from processing sugarcane. Their web site speaks of reed as having a “strong life force” and that they are in “no danger of extinction”. Quite an understatement, it is so fast-growing and can place a huge burden on its environment if left uncontrolled, spreading its root system exponentially and taking over areas where previously other species grew. Quite possibly, this would prove it to be a perfect contender for use in a paper material.

Wasara have designed their products to fit comfortably in the hand and to accentuate food and drink, a value that we rarely see in a disposable item. The shapes and silhouettes are organic and have details and nuances in the texture that suggest the hand akin to hand made ceramics. They are quintessentially Japanese in that they embody the very spirit that is Japanese design, a harmony between nature and the maker.

Για πάρα, πάρα πολύ καιρό θα υπάρχει μιά ανάγκη για πιατικά μίας χρήσης. Κατά πόσο σας αρέσει ή όχι, για ευκολία, αρέσει στον κόσμο να τα χρησημοποιεί. Τα χάρτινα πιάτα σα γενική κατηγορία, ενώ είναι βιοδιασπώσιμα, είναι φτιαγμένα από χαρτοπολτό που είναι φτιαγμένος από ξύλο. Η  Γουασάρα, μία Γιαπωνέζικη εταιρία έχει αναπτύξει όχι μόνο μία όμορφη αλλά και μία οικολογικά φιλική εναλακτική λύση. Έχουν σχεδιάσει και κατασκευάζουν μία σειρά πιάτων, δίσκων και κουπών φτιαγμένα από πολτό καλαμιού και βαγάσση η οποία είναι υπόλειμα από την επεξαργασία της ζαχαροκάλαμου. Η ιστοσελίδα τους μιλά για τα καλάμια ως έχουν μία “δυνατή ζωτική ενέργεια” και πως δεν είναι “σε κανένα κύνδινο εξαφάνισης”. Μπορούμε να πούμε πως δε τα παραλένε, μεγαλώνει τόσο γρήγορα και μπορεί να θέσει τεράστιο βάρος στο περιβάλλον του αν αφεθεί ανεξέλενγκτο, εξαπλώνοντας τις ρίζες του εκθετικά ραγδαία και καταλαμβάνοντας περιοχές στις οποίες προηγουμένως υπήρχαν άλλα ήδη φυτών. Αρκετά πιθανά, αυτό θα αποδείκνυε πως είναι ένας τέλειος υποψήφιος γα χρήση ως υλικό για χαρτί.

Η Γουασάρα έχει σχεδιάσει τα προϊόντα της να εφαρμόζουν άνετα στο χέρι και να τονίζουν το φαγητό και το ποτό, μία αξία που σπάνια βλέπουμε σε είδη μίας χρήσης. Τα σχήματα και οι σιλουέτες είναι οργανικά κι έχουν λεπτομέριες και λεπτότητες στην υφή που υπονοούν το χέρι συναφή με τα χειροποίητα κεραμεικά. Είναι αντιπροσωπευτικά Γιαπωνέζικα έτσι όπως ενσωματώνουν το ίδιο το πνεύμα που είναι ο Γιαπωνέζικος σχεδιασμός, μία αρμονία μεταξύ της φύσης και του δημιουργού.

In September at the 100% Design exibition in London, Scabetti showed Shoal, a delicate fine bone china chandelier. We were lucky to see a number of these on display at the event and were taken by the simplistic yet extremely effective assemblage created by hundreds of fine bone china fish. They have taken advantage of the almost translucent nature of fine bone china which adds to this unique product by allowing light to gently pass through each fish at the same time as reflecting the light inwards towards the source. Each fish is hand strung from a supporting structure to ensure an accurate distribution and that a visual balance is achieved. They come in a number of standard sizes but it appears that custom sizes are popular ranging from tall thin schools to very large and wide. It is important to note that the fish are not small, each is 16 cm (6 inches) long which is a substantial amount of china. The fish are all imprinted with delicate details and they can be strung glazed or unglazed. I preferred the unglazed option of the two as the light appeared to fall and reflect more softly and the powdery finish was indeed more sophisticated. And as a pleasant surprise, as air moves around the structure, the heads and tails chime together creating a gentle sound. The final result is a clever and effective use of light and shape and an original and substantial interpretation of both a chime and a chandelier.

Το Σεπτέμβρη στην έκθεση 100% Ντιζάιν στο Λονδίνο, η Σκαμπέττι παρουσίασε το Σολ, έναν λεπτεπίνεπτο πολυέλαιο από πορσελάνη. Ήμασταν τυχεροί να δούμε έναν αριθμό αυτών περουσιασμένων στην έκθεση και αποσβολωθήκαμε με την απλοϊκή αλλά εξαιρετικά αποτελεσματική συνάθροιση που δημιουργήθηκε με εκατοντάδες ψάρια από περσελάνη. Έχουν εκμεταλευτεί την σχεδόν ημιδιαφανή φύση της πορσελάνης που προσθέτει σε αυτό το μοναδικό προϊόν αφήνωντας το φώς να περάσει μέσα από το κάθε ψάρι ενώ ταυτόχρονα αντανακλα το φως προς στην πηγή του. Το κάθε ψάρι είναι κρεμασμένο με το χέρι από ένα σκελετό στήριξης να εξασφαλίσει μία ακριβή διανομή και την επίτευξη της οπτικής ισσοροπίας. Προσφέρονται σε έναν αριθμό προκανονισμένων μεγεθών αλλά φαίνεται πως ειδικά μεγέθη είναι δημοφιλή κυμαινόμενα από ψηλλά λεπτά κοπάδια μέχρι πολύ μεγάλα και πλατιά. Είναι σημαντικό να σημειώσουμε πως τα ψάρια δεν είναι μικρά, το καθένα είναι 16 εκ. (6 ίντσες) μήκος το οποίο είναι μιά σημαντική ποσότητα πορσελάνης. Τα ψάρια είναι αποτυπωμένα με μικρές λεπτομέριες και μπορούν να κρεμαστούν επισμαλτωμένα ή πορώδη. Προτίμω την πορώδη επιλογή από τις δύο μιας και το φως δείχνει να πέφτει και να αντανακλάται με μαλακότερο τρόπο και το πορώδες τελείωμα ήταν πράγματι πιό φινετσάτο. Και ως ευχάριστη έκπληψη, όπως ο αέρας κινήται στη κατασκευή, τα κεφάλια και οι ουρές καμπανίζουν μεταξύ τους δημιουργώντας έναν απαλό ήχο. Το τελικό αποτέλεσμα είναι μία έξυπνη κι αποτελεσματική χρήση φωτός και σχήματος και μία σημαντική ερμηνεία και του πολυελαίου αλλά και του μελωδού.

Σημείωση: Ζητάω συγνώμη για την ποιότητα της πρώτης εικόνας, σκαναρίστηκε από την καρτέλα για το προϊόν που περισύλλεξα από το περίπτερό τους στην έκθεση 100% Ντιζάιν. Περισότερες φωτογραφίες μετά το κλικ.

Made by bees, with a little coercion from the humans! Designed by Tomas Gabzdil Libertiny of Studio Libertiny and made by 40,000 bees in one week! Studio Libertiny made a vase-shaped hive that the bees colonised then built a honeycomb form to cover the vase shape. Amusingly, Libertiny coined a term to describe the process: “slow prototyping” in contrast to “rapid prototyping”. The piece itself is beautiful. In the way that we relish the hand in hand-made objects, you can see the impression of nature on this work. It is organic and even though the designer has proposed the form, the very nature of the wax building process ensures that each work will be marked differently and take on a personality of its own. Working in this way, Libertiny has broken down the boundaries of conventional production and with a guiding hand, let nature create an object that was up until now perceived to be solely a man-made object.

Dezeen were lucky to get a statement from Libertiny about the project and he had the following to say: “I have been interested in contradicting the current consumer society (which is interested in slick design) by choosing to work with a seemingly very vulnerable and ephemeral material - beeswax. … To give a form to this natural product it has occurred more than logical to choose a form of a vase as a cultural artifact. Beeswax comes from flowers and in the form of a vase ends up serving flowers on their last journey. … At this point I asked myself a question: ‘Can I make this product already at the place where the material originates?’ My ambition to push things further led me to alienate the process by which bees make their almost mathematically precise honeycomb structures and direct it to create a fragile and valuable object – like a pearl. This takes time and time creates value.”

Κατασκευασμένο από μέλισσες με λίγο καταναγκασμό από ανθρώπους! Σχεδιασμένο από τον Τόμας Γκάμπζντιλ του Στούντιο Λιμπερτίνι και κατασκευασμένο από 40.000 μέλισσες σε μία εβδομάδα! Το Στούντιο Λιμπερτίνι έφτιαξε ένα μελίσσι με σχήμα βάζου όπου οι μέλισσες έστησαν αποικία και μετά έχτισαν τις κυψέλες να καλύψουν το σχήμα του βάζου. Για πλάκα, ο Λιμπερτίνι δημιούργησε ένα νεολογισμό να περιγράψει τη διαδικασία: “αργή προτυποποίηση” σε αντίθεση με την “ταχεία προτυποποίηση”. Το ίδιο το κομάτι είναι πανέμορφο. Με τον ίδιο τρόπο που απολαμβάνουμε την παρουσία του χεριού στα χειροποίητα αντικείμενα, μπορούμε να δούμε την αποτύπωση της φύσης σε αυτό το έργο. Είναι οργανικό κι έστω κι αν ο σχεδιαστής έχει προτείνει τη μορφή, η ίδια η φύση της διαδικασίας χτισίματος με κερί εξασφαλίζει πως το κάθε έργο θα έχει σημαδευτεί διαφορετικά και θα έχει πάρει τη δική του προσωπικότητα. Δουλεύοντας με αυτό το τρόπο, ο Λιμπερτίνι έχει διασπάσει τα όρια της συμβατικής παραγωγής και με ένα οδηγητήριο χέρι, έχει αφήσει τη φύση να δημιουργήσει ένα αντικείμενο που μέχρι τώρα αντιλαμβανόμασταν μόνο ως φτιαγμένο από τον άνθρωπο.

Οι Ντεζίν ήταν τυχεροί να πάρουν μία δήλωση από τον Λιμπερτίνι σχετικά με το έργο και είχε να πεί τα ακόλουθα: “Έχω ενδιαφερθεί να αντικρούσω την παρούσα καταναλωτική κοινωνία (που ενδιαφέρεται για το κομψό και στιλπνό σχεδιασμό) επιλέγοντας να δουλέψω με ένα φαινομενικά ευάλωτο και εφήμερο υλικό - το κερί μέλισσας. … Να δώσω μορφή σε αυτό το φυσικό αντικείμενο το σκέφτηκα λογικό να διαλέξω τη μορφή ενός βάζου ως πολιτισμικό τεχνούργημα. Το κερί της μέλισσας προέρχεται από λουλούδια και στη μορφή του βάζου υπηρετεί τα λουλούδια στο τελευταίο τους ταξίδι. … Σε αυτό το σημείο ρώτησα τον εαυτό μου: ‘Μπορώ να φτιάξω αυτό το προϊόν στον τόπο που το υλικό προέρχεται;’ Η φιλοδοξία μου να τραβήξω τα πράγματα παραπέρα με έχει οδηγήσει να αποξενώσω την διαδικασία με την οποία οι μέλισσες φτιάχνουν τις σχεδόν μαθηματικά ακριβή κυψελικές κατασκευές και να την κατευθύνω να δημιουργήσει ένα εύθραυστο και πολύτιμο αντικείμενο - σαν ένα μαργαριτάρι. Αυτό παίρνει χρόνο και δημιουργεί αξία.”

Last year, as a response to the renovation of the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands, ceramic manufacturers Royal Tichelaar Makkum proposed a project titled Pyramids of Makkum in which four prominent designers participated. The designers were asked to reinterpret a 17th century flower pyramid from a contemporary perspective. Although understanding the theory and motivation behind the resulting interpretations, I wasn’t at all taken by them, but I was struck by the original show-piece. It is a sensational display of Delft ceramics and dressed in flowers they are breathtaking. The original flower pyramids were made between 1690 and 1720. They can measure up to 1.6 metres tall and are made up of multiple loose dishes that are held in place in the centre with a wooden stick, not unlike the way the drums of the columns of the Parthenon were held together. Separate dishes allowed the flowers to have their own supply of water but were also designed this way for manufacturing convenience. Creating a mould for an object this large with such a complicated function was impossible at the time. 

The surface decoration is always elaborate and as with all Delftware, a great deal of skill goes into its making. Both the original flower pyramids and the designers’ interpretations were made with a ceramic technique called faience. You can read more about the process here. These works were heavily influenced by Oriental art and crafts which was extremely popular at the time and instrumental to the birth and development of Delftware.  

If you click on the read more link, you will see photos of the designers’ reinterpretations. I’d like to read your thoughts about them in the comments!

Πέρσι, ως αντίδραση στην ανακαίνιση του Ριξμουσέουμ στην Ολλανδία, οι κατασκευαστές κεραμεικών Ρόυαλ Τικλάρ Μάκουμ πρότειναν ένα έργο με τίτλο Πυραμίδες του Μακούμ στο οποίο συμμετείχαν 4 διαπρεπείς σχεδιαστές. Οι σχεδιαστές ρωτήθηκαν να επανερμηνεύσουν μία πυραμίδα λουλουδιών του 17ου αιώνα από μία σύγχρονη προοπτική. Αν και καταλαβαίνω τη θεωρία και το κίνητρο πίσω από τις επακόλουθες ερμηνείες, δεν με ενθουσιάσαν καθόλου, αλλά κεραυνοβολήθηκα από το αυθεντικό κομάτι της έκθεσης. Είναι ένα συνταρακτικό έκθεμα κεραμεικών Ντελφτ και ντυμένο με λουλούδια σου παίρνει την ανάσα. Οι αυθεντικές πυραμίδες φτιάχτηκαν μεταξύ του 1690 και 1720. Φτάνουν τα 1.6 μέτρα ύψος και είναι φτιαγμένες από πολλαπλά σκεύη που συγκρατούνται μεταξύ τους με μία ξύλινη ράβδο, όχι και πολύ διαφορετικά από τους σπονδύλους των κιόνων του Παρθενώνα. Πολλαπλά σκεύη επιτρέπυν τα λουλούδια να έχουν τη δική τους τροφοδοσία νερού αλλά ήταν κι έτσι σχεδιασμένα για διευκόλυνση στη κατασκευή. Η δημιουργία ενός τόσο μεγάλου καλουπιού ήταν αδύνατη εκείνη την εποχή.

Η διακόσμηση της επιφάνειας είναι πάντα περίτεχνη και όπως όλα τα είδη Ντελφτ, έχει φτιαχτεί με μεγάλη επιδεξιότητα. Και οι αυθεντικλες πυραμίδες λουλουδιών αλλά και οι επανερμηνείες των σχεδιαστών φτιάχτηκαν με μία τεχνική της κεραμεικής που ονομάζεται φαγέντσα. Μπορείς να διαβάσεις περισσότερα για την διαδικασία εδώ. Αυτά τα έργα ήταν βαρύτατα επηρεασμένα από Ανατολικές τέχνες οι οποίες ήταν εξαιρετικά δημοφιλή εκείνη την εποχή παίζοντας συντελεστικό ρόλο στην γέννηση κι ανάπτυξη των κεραμεικών Ντελφτ.  

Αν κλικάρετε το δεσμό, θα δείτε φωτογραφίες των επανερμηνειών των σχεδιαστών. Θα ήθελα να διαβάσω τις σκέψεις σας για αυτά στα σχόλια!

What is it? It’s Tune ‘N Radio, a functional FM radio that is not fully functional when purchased. As a consumer, it is your job to make it work by making appropriate holes for the sound to be heard, apply an antenna and finish off the sound and tuning knobs. I feel a little like there aren’t enough changes and upgrades to be done to this little radio but I do love the concept. The shape and positioning of the knobs make for a great canvas with plenty of space to make plenty of holes. A good paint job wouldn’t go astray either.

The Dutch designers, the Wouter Geense Design Studio produce a range of products and concepts that focus on consumer behaviour, how we interact with and respond to our material surroundings. In this case for Tune ‘N Radio to become a functional product it requires the consumer to bond with their purchase, and encourages them to use their creativity and perception of a radio to complete it.

Τι είναι; Είναι το Τιούν ‘εΝ Ρέιντιο, ένα λειτουργικό ράδιο FM που δεν είναι εντελώς λειτουργικό όταν αγοραστεί. Σαν ένας καταναλωτής, είναι η δουλειά σου να το κάνεις να δουλέψει φτιάχνωντας κατάλληλες τρύπες για να ακουστεί ο ήχος, εφαρμόζοντας μιά κεραία και τελειώνοντας τα ρεόμετρα φωνής και συντονισμού. Αισθάνομαι σαν να μην υπάρχουν αρκετές αλλαγές κι αναβαθμίσεις να γίνουν σε αυτό το ραδιάκι αλλά αγαπώ την ένοια. Το σχήμα και η θέση των κουμπιών το κάνουν έναν καταπληκτικό καμβά με μπόλικο χώρο να κάνεις μπόλικες τρύπες. Ένα καλό βάψιμο δε θα πήγαινε χαμένο.

Οι Ολλανδοί σχεδιαστές, Γούτερ Γκινς Ντιζάιν Στούντιο παράγουν μία σειρά προϊόντων κι επινοήσεων που εστιάζονται στη συμπεριφορά του καταναλωτή, πως αλληλεπιδρούμε και αντιδρούμε με το υλικό μας περιβάλλον. Σε αυτή την περίπτωση για το Τιούν ‘εΝ Ρέιντιο να γίνει ένα λειτουργικό προϊόν απαιτεί από τον καταναλωτή να δεθεί με το προίόν, και τους ενθαρύνει να χρησημοποιήσουν την δημιουργικότητα και αντίληψή τους να το ολοκλήρώσουν.

It’s rare to come across a great looking bean bag and especially one that integrates pattern as poetically as Kebnekaise by Little Red Stuga. The Little Red Stuga have designed and produced a number of children’s play products but Kebnekaise would work brilliantly in many interiors. I was initially attracted to the pattern. The ordered dither at this size and proportion not only represents snow but appears as a play on embroidery or colour and weave techniques and conjures images of vernacular textiles of Northern Europe and Scandinavia. What I didn’t know was that the city at the base of this glorious land form is facing a very interesting future due to the fact that after decades of mining underneath the city, it is at risk of caving in. The solution: to move the city 2.5 miles to the side to prevent an otherwise inevitable disaster. Little Red Stuga have made a short almost-stop-motion video to outline the plan of relocation. It is an incredible undertaking.

UPDATE: I was unsure about the construction of the bean bag, however following a conversation with one of the designers, Kasper Medin, I am pleased to find that the bag is knitted, pattern and all. It is a fun interpretation of a pattern that is generally found in computer graphics on a minute scale and it is encouraging to see that they have used a construction technique to illustrate it rather than simply printing it.

Σπάνια τυχαίνει να βρείς ένα καλλαίσθητο πουφ και ειδικά ένα που συμπεριλαμβάνει μοτίβο όσο ποιητικά όσο το Κεμπνεκέζ από τους  Λιτλ Ρεντ Στούγκα. Οι Λιτλ Ρεντ Στουγκα έχουν σχεδιάσει και παράγει έναν αριθμό προϊόντων που είναι παιδικά παιχνιδια αλλά το Κεμπνεκές ταιριάζει λαμπρά σε πολλούς εσωτερικούς χώρους. Αρχικά με τράβηξε το μοτίβο. Το ordered dither σε αυτές τις διαστάσεις και αναλογία όχι μόνο αντιπροσωπεύει χιόνι αλλά φαίνεται ως υπονοούμενο κεντήματος ή τεχνικών έγχρωμης ύφανσης σε αργαλειό και δημιουργεί συνειρμούς τοπικών υφασμάτων από τη Βόρεια Ευρώπη και τη Σκανδιναβία. Τι δεν ήξαρα ήταν πως η πόλη στη βάση αυτής της περίλαμπρης γαίας μορφής αντιμετωπίζει ένα πολύ ενδιαφέρον μέλλον βάση του γεγονότος ότι μετά από δεκαετείες μετάλευσης κάτω από την πόλη, είναι υπό κίνδυνο να καθιζάνει. Η λύση: να μεταφερθεί η πόλη 2.5 μίλια προς την άκρη να αποφευχθεί μία ειδάλλως αναπόφευκτη καταστροφή. Οι Λιτλ Ρεντ Στούγκα έχουν φτιάξει ένα μικρού μήκους βίντεο τραβηγμένο σχεδόν-καρέ-καρέ να περιγράψουν το σχέδιο της μετακίνησης. Είναι ένα απίστευτο εγχείρημα.

ΕΝΗΜΕΡΩΣΗ: Δεν ήμουν σίγουρη για την κατασκευή του πουφ, ωστόσο μετά από μία συζήτηση με έναν από τους σχεδιαστές, Κάσπερ Μέντιν, με ευχαρίστησή μου βρήκα πως το πουφ είναι πλεκτό, μοτίβο και όλα. Είναι μία διασκεδαστική ερμήνευση ενός μοτίβου που γενικά βρίσκεται σε γραφικά ηλεκτρονικών υπολογιστών σε μικρότατη κλίμακα και είναι ενθαρυντικό πως έχουν χρησημοποιήσει μία κατασκευαστική τεχνική να το αποδόσουν αντί απλά να το εκτυπώσουν.

I’ve hijacked The___Cards! If you haven’t already noticed, note cards are all the rage at the moment, thanks mostly to the amazing resurgence of the letterpress in America and the countless number of designer-makers who have set up shop and started printing. But regardless of their beauty, these cards don’t usually allow you to design what message you send, you choose the message to send. The___Cards lets you use your hands to make the perfect message, albeit a simple one but nevertheless, from you. The___Cards are something a little different, a small step outside the box if you will, and if nothing else a bit of fun. Taking a little inspiration from the Panier percé, the message could be very well presented!

The___Cards come in a pack of 5, one of each colour, red, green, pink, light grey and charcoal. The best thing is that you can test out your options on their site and play like we did. For more pictures click the read more button.

Έκανα κατάληψη στις The___Cards! Αν δεν έχετε ήδη προσέξει, οι κάρτες είναι η τρέλα αυτή τη στιγμή, χάρη περισσότερο στη εκπληκτική ανάκαμψη της πατροπαράδοτης εκτυπωτικής πρέσας στην Αμερική και στους αμέτρητους σχεδιαστές-δημιουργούς που έστησαν μαγαζί κι αρχίσαν να τυπώνουν. Αλλά ανεξάρτητα από την ομορφιά τους, αυτές οι κάρτες συνήθως δεν σου επιτρέπουν να σχεδιάσεις τι μήνυμα θέλεις να στείλεις. Οι The___Cards σου επιτρέπουν να χρησημοποιήσεις τα χέρια σου να φτιάξεις το τέλειο μήνυμα, ομολογουμένως ένα απλό μήνυμα παρ’όλα αυτά, από εσένα. Οι The___Cards είναι κάτι λίγο διαφορετικό, ένα μικρό βήμα έξω από τα όρια αν θες, κι αν όχι κάτι άλλο έχουν πλάκα. Παίρνοντας λίγη έμπνευση από το Πανιέρ περσέ, το μήνυμα θα μπορούσε να είναι πολύ ευπαρουσίαστο!

Οι The___Cards έρχονται σε πακέτο των 5, μία κάθε χρώματος, κόκκινο, πράσινο, ροζ, ανοιχτό γκρί κι ανθρακί. Το καλύτερο είναι πως μπορείς να δοκιμάσεις τις επιλογές σου στην ιστοσελίδα τους και να παίξεις όπως κάναμε κι εμείς. Περισσότερες φωτογραφίες μετά το κλικ.

I wonder … when Punch magazine nicknamed The Crystal Palace for the building which was to hold The Great Exhibition in 1851, did they or anyone else for that matter imagine that 1000 feet (300 metres) under the surface of the earth lay this magnificent world? It was discovered in the year 2000 by two brothers that were drilling in Mexico. The cave is literally full of crystals with some measuring more than 30 feet (9 metres) long and are possibly about 600,000 years old. For all this time, these crystals have been slowly growing in a perfect environment of water, heat and humidity to produce selenite structures of astounding size and proportion. The cave was entirely full of water but around 1985 miners unknowingly drainned it revealing the amazing crystals. No longer immersed in water, the crystals stopped growing. The current environment is hot and sticky, 44° degrees Celcius and between 90 and 100 percent humidity due to the fact that the cave “lies above an intrusion of magma about a mile below the surface”. This environment is quite unsuitable for the human condition and as such, visitors to the cave have to don a suit of ice packs and wear masks to assist in breathing. Without gravity …. how would you know which way is up and which is down .. or would it really matter. What a breathtaking sight! You can read the full article on the National Geographic site where you will also find all of the pictures and the video from the cave.

Aναρωτιέμαι … όταν το περιδικό Παντς έβγαλε το υποκοριστικό Το Κρυστάλλινο Παλάτι για το κτήριο που θα φιλοξενούσε τη Μεγάλη Έκθεση του 1851, μήπως κανένας από αυτούς ή οποιοσδήποτε άλλος για αυτό το λόγο φαντάστηκαν πως 1000 πόδια, 300 μέτρα, κάτω από την επιφάνεια της γης θα απλωνόταν αυτός ο μεγαλοπρεπής κόσμος; Ανακαλύφθηκε το 2000 από δύο αδέρφια που έκαναν γεώτρηση στο Μεξικό. Το σπήλαιο είναι κυριολεκτικά γεμάτο κρύσταλλους με μερικούς πάνω από 30 πόδια, 9 μέτρα, μήκος και πιθανότατα ηλικίας 600.000 ετών. Για όλο αυτό τον καιρό, αυτοί οι κρύσταλλοι μεγαλώναν σε ένα τέλειο περιβάλλον νερού, ζέστης και υγρασίας για να παράγουν κατασκευάσματα σεληνητίου εκπληκτικού μεγέθους και αναλογιών. Το σπήλαιο ήταν εντελώς γεμάτο αλλά αλλά εργάτες ορυχείου μη ξέροντας προκάλεσαν την αποστράγγισή του αποκαλύπτωντας τους καταπληκτηκούς κρυστάλλους. Μην όντας βυθισμένοι σε νερό, οι κρύσταλλοι σταμάτησαν να μεγαλλώνουν. Το τρέχον περιβάλλον είναι ζεστό και γλοιώδη, 44° βαθμοί Κελσίου και μεταξύ 90 και 100 τοις εκατό υγρασία λόγω του γεγονότος πως το σπήλαιο “βρίσκεται πάνω από έγκλεισμα μάγματος σχεδόν ένα μίλι κάτω από την επιφάνεια”. Αυτό το περιβάλλον είναι αρκετά ακατάλληλο για την ανθρώπινη κατάσταση κι έτσι, οι επισκέπτες στο σπήλαιο πρέπει να μοστράρουν με στολή ναρθηκών πάγου και να φορούν μάσκες να τους βοηθάνε να αναπνέουν. Χωρίς βαρύτητα … πως θα ήξερες που είναι το πάνω και που το κάτω … ή θα πείραζε μήπως πραγματικά. Θέα που σου παίρνει την ανάσα! Μπορείτε να διαβάσετε το πλήρες άρθρο στην ιστοσελίδα της  Νάσιοναλ Τζιογκράφικ όπου θα βρείτε όλες τις φωτογραφίες και το βίντεο από το σπήλαιο.

This is our first attempt at an unboxing. We know that the 17″ Macbook Pro was announced at the Macworld Expo Apple keynote but since we do not have one to show you we will show you its baby brother. A friend of ours recently bought himself an Apple Macbook and he shared his excitement with us by letting us photograph the unboxing of his new tool. We loved the way the machine felt as an object. There is a great deal of attention to detail on it and we tried to capture some of that in the pictures. The pictures are published with a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial licence.

Αυτή είναι η πρώτη μας απόπειρα σε τέτοιου είδους άρθρο. Γνωρίζουμε πως το 17 ιντσών Μάκμπουκ Προ ανακοινώθηκε στην έκθεση Μακ-γουέρλντ στην παρουσίαση της Aπλ αλλά εφ’όσον δεν έχουμε ένα να σας το δείξουμε θα σας δείξουμε το μικρό του αδερφάκι. Ένας φίλος μας πρόσφατα αγόρασε για τον εαυτό του ένα Απλ Μάκμπουκ και μοιράστηκε μαζί μας τον ενθουσιασμό του με το να μας αφήσει να φωτογραφίσουμε το νέο εργαλείο του ενώ το έβγαζε από τη συσκευασία. Μας άρεσε πολύ το πώς το μηχάνημα αισθανόταν σαν αντικείμενο. Υπήρχε μεγάλη προσοχή στη λεπτομέρια και προσπαθήσαμε να το αιχμαλωτήσουμε λίγο στις φωτογραφίες.

Caroline Swift’s china is lovely. She has managed to create, by hand, a collection of products that take full advantage of bone china’s super fine, super strong and almost transluscent qualities. Her bowls and cups, above, are as if made from paper and appear so thin that you would be frightened handling them. However her web site insists that they are incredibly strong. Each piece bears the mark of the hand, each unique in its shape and form and they remain unglazed giving them an extra delicate and natural appearance.

Caroline advocates what she calls “slow design” which is not to mean that it takes a long time but “rather it is a philosophy about taking pleasure and pride in making things and passing that on”.

Oh, and when you have swooned over the delicacy and craftsmanship of each piece, take a look at the final image after the jump … that is the way she packages each purchase from her online store. Wrapped in felt, tied with string and fastened with a hand made porcelain rose. Just lovely! More pictures after the jump.

Before the recent holiday, Caroline had a cooking piece on design*sponge where you can see her bowls, cups and spoons being used.

Οι πορσελάνες της Κάρολαϊν Σουίφτ είναι αξιαγάπητες. Έχει καταφέρει να δημιουργήσει, με το χέρι, μία συλλογή προϊόντων που πλήρως εκμεταλεύονται την λεπτότητα, μεγάλη δύναμη και την σχεδόν διαφάνεια της πορσελάνης. Τα μπωλάκια και φλυτζάνια, άνω, είναι σα να έχουν φτιαχτεί από χαρτί και δείχνουν τόσο λεπτά που θα φοβόσουν να τα πιάσεις με τα χέρια σου. Ωστόσο η ιστοσελίδα της επιμένει πως είναι απίστευτα δυνατά. Κάθε κομάτι φέρει το σημάδι του χεριού, κάθε ένα μοναδικό στο σχήμα και τη μορφή και παραμένουν χωρίς σμάλτο δίνοντάς τους μία επιπλέον λεπτή και φυσική εμφάνιση.

Η Καρολάιν υπερασπίζεται τι ονόμάζει “αργός σχεδιασμός” που δε σημαίνει πως παίρνει πολύ καιρό αλλά “κάπως είναι μία φιλοσοφία το να λαμβάνεις ευχαρίστηση και υπερηφάνεια φτιάχνοντας πράγματα και να το μεταδίδεις”.

Α, κι όταν έχετε πλέον λιποθυμίσει με την λεπτότητα και την αριστοτεχνία του κάθε κοματιού, ρίξτε και μιά ματιά στην τελευταία εικόνα μετά το κλικ … αυτός είναι ο τρόπος που πακετάρει την κάθε αγορά από το ηλεκτρονικό της κατάστημα. Τυλιγμένη σε τσόχα, δεμένο με σπάγκο και ασφαλισμένο με ένα χειροποίητο ρόδο πορσελάνης. Απλά αξιαγάπητα! Περισσότερες φωτογραφίες μετά το κλικ.

Πριν τις πρόσφατες διακοπές, η Κάρολαϊν είχε κάποιες συνταγές στην ιστοσελίδα design*sponge όπου μπορείτε να δείτε τα μπωλάκιαμ φλυτζάνια και κουτάλια να χρησημοποιούνται.

“Structures/Facades” is a credenza, or sideboard, and the outcome of a collaboration between Tina Roeder and David Krings. The project drew inspiration from the architectural history of East and West Berlin, “rich in visions and utopias” says Tina’s site. There is very little information around about this prototype but Tina’s site also says that the material used for it were 1,5 mm grey cardboard and chrome plated steel for the legs. The abstract lattice effect created by the architectural forms, which is almost like a kaleidoscope of line, is very interesting, a real show stopper in the right interior.

Το “Δομές/Προσόψεις” είναι ένας μπουφές, ή σερβάντα, και είναι το επακόλουθο της συνεργασίας μεταξύ της Τίνας Ρόεντερ και του Ντέιβιντ Κρίνγκς. Το έργο άντλησε έμπνευση από την αρχιτεκτονική ιστορία του Ανατολικού και Δυτικού Βερολίνου, “πλούσιο με οράματα και ουτοπίες” λέει η ιστοσελίδα της Τίνας. Υπάρχουν πολύ λίγες πληροφορίες για αυτό το πρότυπο αλλά η ιστοσελίδα της Τίνας ακόμα λέει πως το υλικό που χρησημοποιήθηκε ήταν γκρι χαρτόνι 1.5 χιλιοστών και επιχρωμιομένο ατσάλι για τα πόδια. Το αφηρημένο εφέ πλέγματος που δημιουργείται από τις αρχιτεκτονικές φόρμες, που είναι σχεδόν σαν καλειδοσκόπιο γραμμών, είναι πολύ ενδιαφέρον, στο κατάλληλο εσωτερικό χώρο θα είχε αφοπλιστικό αποτέλεσμα.

I am not sold on the aesthetic of this cutlery but boy has Korean designer Seongyong Lee solved a painful problem.  Trying to fish the cutlery out of the bottom of the sink, especially when you’ve filled the sink up the day before to “pre-soak” the dishes, is no longer an icky task! The cutlery is hollow creating an air chamber which causes the cutlery to float ensuring that the handle stays above the water and the rest under. He also claims that the spherical shape in the centre aids in support making cutting and chopping easier.

Δεν έχω πειστεί με την αισθητική σε αυτά τα μαχαιροπήρουνα αλλά έλα που ο Κορεάτης σχεδιαστής Σεονυόγκ Λη έλυσε ένα επίπονο πρόβλημα. Το ψάρεμα των μαχαιροπήρουνων από τον πάτο του νεροχύτη, ιδίως όταν έχεις γεμίσει το νεροχύτη από τη προηγούμενη μέρα να “καλομουλιάσουν” τα πιάτα, δεν είναι πλέον ένα αηδιαστικό καθήκον! Τα μαχαιροπήρουνα είναι κούφια δημιουργώντας έναν θάλαμο αέρα που προκαλεί άνωση εξασφαλίζοντας πως η λαβή μένει πάνω από το νερό και το υπόλοιπο κάτω. Ακόμα ισχυρίζεται πως το σφαιρικό σχήμα στη μέση βοηθάει την στήριξη κάνοντας την κοπή και το μπαλτάδιασμα ευκολότερο.

David Burel makes plywood head phones. Hand crafted from 9 layers of Finnish birch wood, they are custom made to ensure the best fit. Looking at them in the top image, they don’t exactly scream perfection but it is what they offer to artists and designer’s out there that I am most interested in. The Perfect Unison and Parra have collaborated on a project using Burel’s head phones, hand screen printed in with Parra artwork, they open a floodgate of possibility. The size and finish has been well thought out and using a light and natural wood means that printing and painting will present few problems. I imagine that they would stain up beautifully also.

So the specs: The headphones themselves are 30mm Ultrasone mylar drivers and they say over at Acquire that they have a frequency range of 20-20,000hz and an impedance of output of 35 ohms.

There were only 50 Parra edition headphones printed, and were available in Europe exclusively through The Lazy Dog in Paris for €349 per unit. BoingBoing lists the OEM from Burel as costing €250 per unit.

While we are on the subject of electronic goods incorporating natural materials, I noticed that Dell has recently released CPU called Hybrid whose shell is made from bamboo. Image after the jump.

Ο Ντέιβιντ Μπουρέλ φτιάχνει ακουστικά από κόντρα-πλακέ. Χειροποίητα από εννέα στρώσεις Φινλανδικής σημύδας, είναι ειδικά φτιαγμένα να εξασφαλίζουν την καλύτερη εφαρμογή. Κοιτώντας τα στην πάνω εικόνα, δεν κι ακριβώς κραυγάζουν τελειότητα αλλά είναι το τι προσφέρουν σε καλλιτέχνες και σχεδιαστές εκεί έξω που με ενδιαφέρει περισσότερο. Οι Δε Πέρφεκτ Γιούνισον και Παρρά έχουν συνεργαστεί σε μία δουλειά χρησημοποιώντας τα ακουστικά του Μπουρέλ, τυπωμένα με μεταξοτυπία σχέδια του Παρρά, ανοίγουν ένα φράγμα πιθανοτήτων. Το μέγεθος και το φινίρισμα είναι καλομελετημένα και χρησημοποιόντας ένα ανοιχτό κι ελαφρύ ξύλο σημαίνει πως η εκτύπωση και το βάψιμο θα παρουσιάσουν λίγα προβλήματα. Πιστεύω πως και θα βερνικονόντουσαν όμορφα.

Λοιπόν τα χαρακτηριστικά: Τα ίδια τα ακουστικά είναι με πηνεία 30χιλιοστών επιμεταλωμένου πολυεστέρα Ultrasone και λένε στο Acquire πως έχουν φάσμα συχνοτήτων 20-20.000 κύκλων και εμπέδηση 35 ‘Ωμ.

Υπήρχαν μόνο 50 ακουστικά έκδοσης Παρρά που τυπώθηκαν, και ήταν διαθέσιμα στην Ευρώπη αποκλειστικά μέσω της The Lazy Dog στο Παρίσι για €349 ανά μονάδα. Το BoingBoing αναφέρει τα ατύπωτα ακουστικά από τον Βπουρέλ κοστίζουν €250 ανά μονάδα.

Κι ενώ είμαστε στο θέμα των ηλεκτρονικών αγαθών που ενσωματώνουν φυσικά υλικά, πρόσεξα πως η Dell έχει πρόσφατα διαθέσει έναν υπολογιστή ονομαζόμενο Hybrid (υβρίδιο) του οποίου το κέλυφος είναι φτιαγμένο από μπαμπού. Εικόνα μετά το κλικ.

No, they don’t grind up weasels to make coffee, but they do make coffe using the coffee beans that the weasels regurgitate! Edible has some pretty interesting delicacies on their web store and if you do decide to indulge, you can rest assured that the products are made following strict health and safety standards and everything is ethically produced. With all that said …. Edible have got everything quirky and cooky from the world’s menus. Here’s a few treats: Deer Pate, which is an arctic delicacy made from select cuts of Swedish Arctic Reindeer, cognac and spices. They suggest that it is served on hot buttered toast with a glass of brandy! The lizard wine is a brandy like liquor that has been left to ferment with Tokay Gecko lizards and ginseng for 12 months. Apparently consumption of lizard wine is said to ward off evil and to improve vision and supposedly lizard imparts a unique flavour … so they say! The giant toasted ants are a rare delicacy among the Guane Indians of Colombia and are carefully toasted in a mud pot over and open fire producing a nutty bacon flavour. The Indians believe that the ants have youth giving properties and are considered an aphrodisiac and so served at nuptial ceremonies to aid in fertility. There are plenty of products to admire at Edible and their well designed site shows the products in class, order, species and origin and all have a good solid description. And in every case the packaging is well designed, crossing the line between food packaging and pharmaceutical packaging, enhancing the concept of their health benefits. And I love the name but is it convincing enough?

Όχι, δεν αλέθουν νυφίτσες για να φτιάξουν καφέ, αλλά χρησημοιποιούν κόκκους καφέ που οι νυφίτσες αναμυρικάζονται για να φτιάξουν καφέ! Η Έντιμπλ έχει έχει μερικές κάπως ενδιαφέρουσες λιχουδιές στον ηλεκτρονικό τους κατάστημα κι αν αποφασίσεις να ενδόσεις, μπορείς να μείνεις ήσυχος πως τα προϊόντα τους είναι φτιαγμένα ακολουθώντας αυστηρές προδιαγραφές υγειονομικής και ασφάλειας και τα πάντα είναι από δεοντολογικές παραγωγές. Έχοντας πει όλα αυτά … Η Έντιμπλ έχει όλα τα περίεργα και τρελά από τα μενού του κόσμου. Εδώ έχουμε μερικές λιχουδιές: Ελαφοπατέ, που είναι μια αρκτική λιχουδιά φτιαγμένη από εκλεκτά κοψίδια Σουηδικού Αρκτικού Ταράνδου, κονιάκ και μπαχαρικά. Προτείνουν να σερβίρεται σε ζεστό τόστ με βούτηρο κι ένα ποτήρι μπράντυ! Το σαυρόκρασο είναι σα μπράντυ, έχει υποστεί ζύμωση μαζί με σαύρες Τοκάι Γκέκο και με τζίνσενγ για 12 μήνες. Κατά τα φαινόμενα, η κατανάλωση σαυρόκρασου λέγεται να φυλάει από το κακό και να βελτιώνει τη όραση και κατ’εικασία αφήνει μία μοναδική γεύση … λένε! Τα γιγάντια ψητά μυρμήγκια είναι μία σπάνια λιχουδιά για τους Ινδιάνους Γκουέιν της Κολομβίας και ψήνονται προσεκτικά σε ένα φούρνο από λάσπη και σε φωτιά δημιουργώντας μια γεύση σα μπέικον. Οι Ινδοί πιστεύουν πως τα μυρμήγκια σου έχουν ιδιότητες που σου χαρίζουν νεότητα και θεωρούνται αφροδησιακό και έτσι σερβίρονται σε γαμήλιες τελετές ως βοηθήματα γονιμότητας. Υπάρχουν πολλά προϊόντα να θαυμάσετε στην Έντιμπλ και η καλοσχεδιασμένη ιστοσελίδα τους δείχνει τα προϊόντα ανά κλάση, υφομοταξία, είδος και προέλευση και όλα έχουν μία καλή ουσιώδη περιγραφή. Και σε κάθε περίπτωση η συσκευασία είναι καλά σχεδιασμένη, αναπηδώντας την οριογραμμή μεταξύ συσκευασίας φαγητού και φαρμακευτικής συσκευασίας, τονίζοντας την ένοια πως είναι ευεργετικά για την υγεία. Και αγαπάω το όνομα αλλά είναι αρκετά πειστικό;

Jean Shin in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia in 2006 made and installed TEXTile. An installation made from 22,528 recycled computer keycaps and 192 custom-made keycaps, fabric, a custom built working keyboard with interactive software, a video projection and to top it all off, a few good chunks of aluminium.

The computer keyboard keycaps are embedded into a length of cloth and have been layed out in order to create a transcript of the artists email correspondence with the manufacturers and fabricators involved in putting the work together.  At one end, there is a working keyboard that allows visitors to the exhibition to type a message which is displayed on the screen at the opposite end and “thereby continuing the virtual dialogue”. Her web site says that “the project speaks to the pervasiveness of email in our lives while commenting on the fact that, despite the modern technology of virtual communication, our written language is linked to the tactile sensation of moving our fingers over an outmoded typewriter system.”

I applaud the fact that the fabric is readable and that there has been great thought and labour put in to ensure that the keys tell a story and recreate the making of the installation. Pictorial storytelling has played a dominant role in textile history but the written word is rare, more specifically textiles decorated entirely in the written word are rare and this work speaks strongly to those of us who communicate everyday using a keyboard. I also appreciate her acknowledgement of the importance that the fabricators played in developing the work and that they too are part of the work itself and the story that it has to tell.

As a side note, likely to be one of the longest pictorial textiles in history is the Bayeux tapestry which I have been lucky to see. Although called a tapestry it is actually an embroidered cloth that measures 70 m long and documents the events of the Norman invasion of England in 1066 with embroidered annotations in Latin. I found a great little video on YouTube that shows an animated Bayeux tapestry to tell the story in English… fun and effective.

Η Τζιν Σιν με τη συνεργασία του Εγραστηρίου Υφασμάτων και το Μουσείο της Φιλαδέλφιας το 2006 έφτιαξε κι εγκατέστησε το TEXTile. Μία εγκατάσταση φτιαγμένη από 22.528 επανακυκλωμένα καπάκια πλήκτρων και 192 ειδικά κατασκευασμένα καπάκια πλήκτρων, ύφασμα, ένα ειδικά κατασκευασμένο λειτουργικό πληκτρολόγιο με διαδραστικό λογοσμικό, έναν προβολέα βίντεο και για να το τελειώσουν όλο, μερικά καλά κομάτια αλουμινίου.

Τα καπάκια από πληκτρολόγιο υπολογιστή είναι εμφυτευμένα σε ένα μήκος υφάσματος κι έχουν ταξιθετηθεί με τρόπο ώστε να δημιουργούν μία καταγραφή της αλληλογραφίας με τους κατασκευαστές που επμλέχθηκαν στην συνάθριση του έργου. Στο ένα άκρο, είναι ένα λειτουργικό πληκτρολόγιο που επιτρέπει στους επισκέπτες στην έκθεση να δακτυλογραφούν ένα μήνυμα το οποίο προβάλεται στη οθόνη στην αντίθετη άκρη και “δι’αυτού συνεχίζει τον εικονικό διάλογο”. Η ιστοσελίδα της λέει πως “το έργο μιλάει στην διάχυτη παρουσία της ηλεκτρονικής αλληλογραφίας στις ζωές μας σχολιάζοντας το γεγονός πως, αντίθετα με τη μοντέρνα τεχνολογία των εικονικών επικοινωνιών, η γραπτή μας γλώσσα είναι συνδεδεμένη με την απτή αίσθηση της κίνησης των δακτύλων μας πάνω από ένα παλιομοδίτικο σύστημα γραφομηχανής”.

Επιδοκιμάζω το γεγονός πως το ύφασμα είναι αναγνώσιμο και πως πολλή σκέψη και εργασία έχει πέσει πάνω του να επιβεβαιωθεί πως τα πλήκτρα λένε μία ιστορία και αναδημιουργούν την κατασκευή της εγκατάστασης αυτής. Η εικονογραφημένη εξιστόρηση έχει παίξει δεσπόζων ρόλο στην ιστορία του υφάσματος μα ο γραπτός λόγος είναι σπάνιος, πιό συγκεκριμένα υφάσματα διακοσμημένα εντελώς με τον γραπτό λόγο είναι σπάνια κι αυτή η δουλειά είναι σπάνια και μιλά δυνατά σε αυτούς από εμάς που επικοινωνούν καθημερινά χρησημοποιώντας ένα πληκτρολόγιο. Ακόμα εκτιμώ την αναγνώρισή της σημασίας που οι κατασκευαστές παίξαν στην ανάπτυξη του έργου και πως αυτοί επίσης είναι τμήμα του ίδιου του έργου και της ιστορίας που έχει να πει.

Ως υποσημείωση, πιθανόν να είναι το μακρύτερο εικονογραφημένο ύφασμα στην ιστορία είναι η ταπισερί του Μπαγιού που είμαι τυχερή να έχω δει. Αν και αποκαλείται ταπισερί, στην πραγματικότητα είναι ένα κεντητό ύφασμα που έχει μήκος 70 μέτρα και καταγράφει τα γεγονότα της εισβολής της Αγγλίας από τους Νορμανδούς το 1066 με κεντημένα υπομνήματα στα Λατινικά. Βρήκα ένα έξοχο μικρό βίντεο στο YouTube που δείχνει μία κινούμενη ταπισερί του Μπαγιού να λέει την ιστορία στα Αγγλικά… έχει πλάκα και είναι αποτελεσματικό!
