24 Hour chairs – A metaphor.

by Savvy

A special friend and I are going to start building. We don’t know what yet, but with an architectural background and some unwanted wood there’s lots to play with.

24 Hour Chairs is a project by Andy Hall designed to act as a metaphor for a full day’s work of making. Each hour consisted of drawing, designing and building a chair prototype. Andy Hall describes the project as ‘unpacking the hour‘ – highlighting how much we can achieve in a day if we unpacked all the hours. I have fought between laziness and productivity for years, and as much as I love sleep and pillows (and I do love sleep), exhaustion caused by an overworked brain is much preferred for my sanity than the  luring appeal of soft things and relaxation, aka time wasting. It’s hard most times to rid myself of that heavy lazy indulgence but the truth is I’d much rather be making things.

Complete set from the HallMfg. Pop-Up Art Loop exhibition “24, hour chairs” in Chicago from 1/22/2010 to 3/5/2010, material provided by ReBuilding Exchange‘: here.

For the AIDS generation.

by Savvy

Architecture: Koji Tsutsui – Japan
Photographs by Iwan Baan – Architectural Photographer

In a region often considered as the birthplace of HIV, where families are led either by grandparents or by 14years old ‘big’ brothers, where a whole generation has been erased by AIDS, the orphanage is home to 87 kids with ages up to 15 years. Another approximately 200 children attend the school on a regular basis, commuting to this otherwise surreally beautiful place“.

Splice mail art.

by Savvy

A thoughtful mail art project by my dear friend Ruben. Feel free to contribute!

A mail art project brought to you by Ruben and friends.

Ruben Cooke began cancer treatment for relapsed Hodgkins Lymphoma at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford in the month of January, 2010.

This project has been designed to provide some distraction from the reality of his situation. We plan to exhibit some or all of the work received, upon completion of Ruben’s treatment.

Our theme, splice has multiple definitions but, crucially, contains the word ICE, which directly references the combination of chemotherapy Ruben will be receiving for the duration of his treatment.

More information can be found on the website.
