In a drawer somewhere, with all the other half-written articles, I have one about the thingness of things. The factuality of artifacts. Have someone look carefully at a book of items like these and set them loose on the street and see how they look at things there: lightposts, posted leaflets about lost cats, fireplugs, bicycles. The design of things matters to you only after you look at good design. Then bad design makes you hurt. It is like the difference between Fritz Lang and Hitchcock. Lang was about the content and the composition, the items; Hitchcock was about the sequence of images.

These are always interesting to look at... but recently they've seemed like filler content.

Oh... and eric hanson.... I'm speechless that was so profound.

Eric, I love the Polynesian stick charts from the Marshall Islands.
My first childhood memories are of Kwajalein’s blue lagoon.
I've also seen the stick charts at the Met.

last image...
a spiral staircase leading up? to nowhere!
a helter-skelter sliding down? back to earth!
a brace and bit drilling through? pushing forward... yes!
