📖 “A Business Office in Open Air”

“Roger Babson and his staff work in the open air. As the thermometer often drops below the zero mark, the office force must be heavily clothed. The heavy woolen mittens make it impossible to operate the machines with speed, so two curved sticks are provided with which the keys are depressed. Good speed is thus attained.”

beetle 

🔭 on my walk i took this female stag beetle a little bit with me :)

the design of this japanese Shinkansen train is brought to you by Lilac, Lupine, Lavender

rainy sunday … continued with the typewriting stuff. i liked the idea from my first try with the textile pattern, so i continued a bit. I made some basic elements first and then merged them into a larger image on a grid. It’s more like a flying carpet now or wavy glitch something. I also used other glyphs that give it a more dense, textile like appearance (/, %, §). I didn’t want to in the first place, but things got very complicated VERY fast and i had to use a text-editor for composition and as template for typing line by line… :idle:

📖 “Yes” “You” “Can”, Selected Writings by Al Razutis, Manchester: 2020

reading this beautiful book with writings of media artist Al Razutis. Many rants against academia and the capitalist (art) world, plus beautiful stills of his video work. i’m really into the handmade books of this small indie press:
