New White Fire Escape

I thought someone was breaking in to my apartment when I saw a man on my fire escape, but in fact he was just giving it a fresh coat of white paint. It looks so much nicer than it did before. I think the red one across the street is pleased with this change as well.

Central Park South - A Thing!

I was on my way back from an appointment, when I noticed, out of the corner of my eye, through the trees, something in front of the south entrance of Central Park. It seemed friendly, so I went and had a look.

Mister New York

Click here to see Mister New York!

"Mr. New York broadcasts short documentary films that engage, educate and encourage viewers to become involved in the culture of New York City. Each episode provides a unique perspective on the authentic, the seedy, steamy and edgy parts of the city.

The people in our films are at the forefront of social and cultural change in New York, and by extension, the world. Our subjects are from all walks of life: musicians, artists, writers, entrepreneurs; the down-right fascinating, off-the-wall, under-the-bench, out-in-the-streets, over-the-top, true New Yorkers.

This is the New York we intend to illumine: always diverse, always changing."

Models for Firewood

Its very cold in our studios. Its getting desperate.

As I've been working with and researching cubes as part of the design for the house I'm working on in studio class, I decided to watch this movie, Cube. Its actually pretty stupid, and the acting is horrible, and I'm sorry to say that I did indeed watch the entire thing.

Here's the basic story line: 6 people awaken to find themselves trapped in a giant labyrinth of shifting rooms that are cubes. There are doors on each side that lead to new rooms, some with deadly traps, each marked with a number that contains a code as to the room's placement and line of movement along a Cartesian coordinate system. The people trapped inside must work together and solve the puzzle to find their way out and avoid the deadly traps!

Please don't watch it. Its so bad. But please feel free to watch the trailer if you're intrigued.

Olafur Eliasson

I can always rely on Talkitect to lead me to something spectacular... Here's a video of Olafur Eliasson, one of my favorite artists, talking about his work.

"Many of his best-known works explore architecture and the mechanics of perception, almost as if the fantastical imaginings of Buckminster Fuller were reinterpreted by a cognitive scientist."
- Michael Joseph Gross, New York magazine

Upside Down

My other obsession besides for architecture is hanging upside down. Gracefully if possible.
