Friday Links

Being told, “Durrell, it’s your turn to do Friday links”, reminds me of being the uncool teenager queuing to get in to a club in 1980.

There’s no point in pretending I know the cool and interesting web links, so instead…

I loved a small exhibition by Barber Osgerby at the Design Museum called In The Making. It shows the beautiful half-formed stages of products being manufactured, and followed up my curiosity with videos of the processes in action. It reminds me of Corneilia Parker’s Embryo Firearms.

The other thing that keeps bouncing around in my head (and keeps me up late at night) is the possibility of bringing drawing to life in Algodoo. I think the aesthetic potential of this program is amazing despite all the examples looking like school experiments in a physics class.
