The Difference Between a Collector and a Hoarder

(8 years ago)
The most hurtful thing you can call me is a hoarder. I currently have 29 vintage sewing machines in my apartment in various states, but my aim is to restore them all to perfect mechanical condition and then get them back out the door. (I just happen to be in the Collecting & Repairing phase and have not yet advanced to the Selling phase.)Collecting objects is a peculiar affliction, and while I'm primarily interested in an object's function, other collectors wish merely to display the things. Apartment Therapy Los Angeles' got a post on how to display five types of collectible objects, from vintage typewriters to what I thought were wooden chess pieces, but which are actually teak pepper grinders. People can and do collect everything, it seems, and a key difference between a hoarder and a collector is curation and artful display.Want to see collections of various objects from around the world?

Core77 Design Award 2011: Change Elevators, Paccar hall, University of Washington, Notable for Graphics/Branding/Identity

(8 years ago)
Over the next months we will be highlighting award-winning projects and ideas from this year's Core77 Design Awards! For full details on the project, jury commenting and more information about the awards program, go to Core77DesignAwards.comDesigner: Karen Cheng and Kristine MatthewsLocation: Seattle, Washington, USACategory: Graphics/Branding/IdentityAward: Professional NotableChange Elevators, Paccar Hall, University of WashingtonThis installation reflects upon the dynamic relationship between business and change. The word 'CHANGE' appears inside two elevators, along with 18 synonyms. Each synonym is highlighted with actual loose change (an international coin). On each floor, the word CHANGE is modified by an exterior word, creating six unique word pairs.We thought that the donor's intent (to celebrate business and its impact on society) would be best served by an installation that would say something significant about the nature of business. We wanted to find a concept would endure over time (throughout the life of the new building), but we were afraid of "preachy" and obvious ideas and themes (i.e., concepts about business leadership, the importance of innovation, etc.). Given the large student audience, we also wanted the installation to be playful -- to be something that people of all ages and cultures would relate to and enjoy seeing every day.The "CHANGE" concept actually grew out of our desire to incorporate actual "loose change" (coins) into the fabric of the[..]

Would You Kickstart a Bad-Ass Art Project? Of Course You Would, It's Bad-Ass...

(8 years ago)
Chicago-based creative Josh Harker spent over ten years as a designer before committing to fine art, which explains his interest in the ever-evolving domain of prototyping technology. He's been drawing for his whole life, exploring highly-detailed "tangles" in two dimensions for some two decades. A few years ago, "a perfect storm of software, technology, & materials engineering all came together" to allow him to explore his ideas in three dimensions.While much of his existing work consists of organic abstractions, executed in bronze as well as more traditional 3D-printable mediums such as polyamide nylon, he's pleased to present "Crania Anatomica Filigre," an intricately-patterned skull, on Kickstarter.For those of us (read: Core employees) who might not have the discretionary cashflow to drop hundreds to thousands on contemporary artwork, it's a sweet opportunity to own a limited edition sculpture—especially one that has a timeless appeal while capturing this moment in 2011, when 3D-printing has become viable on a large scale (via Kickstarter, no less).You can view the piece in Hi-Res 3D on Harker's website(more...)
