My Front Curb Repurposed Inspired by El Nardo!

IMG_0233..Captain’s Chair Worn out by Number Ones Ass

El Nardo wore out yet another hand me down computer style office chair. Second in the last two years he’s lived here. I think it’s from squirming around while Youtubing and gaming. He just rubs down the back and seat covering from restless shifting. Nardo’s a big boy probably 200lbs and around 6 feet tall and 32 years old. He breaks a lot of things. He’s kind of rough on everything. Pushes and clunks and bangs shit into stuff. I hide all my valuable stuff so he doesn’t get his mitts on it. And so within 6 months of getting his ass on it, he wore out the upholstery, which was probably made in China anyway. So his mama passed down her computer chair and picked up a solid oak office chair circa 1960s. So I began to think, should I fix my computer chair, in this disposable society? It’s loaded with adjustables. In our throw-away society, even technically crafted objects are considered disposable..

Worn Out Computer Chair

I started to research. And that’s when I came up with the idea that I could go to the local serendipity and find a comfortable chair that I really like and bring it home and screw it to the base of the worn out computer chair. Sort of like Steampunk, if I get the era right. So, if you’ve paid $300 for a good hydraulic height and angle adjustments on a computer chair, have no fear, you can reupholster it if you can find the time or the craftsman to do it, or you can go find a used vintage chair in good shape that speaks to your sensibility and simply switch out the seating onto the base.

Here are some examples…

The Chicago School of Art Mandates Against the Use of Curves, Allowing Straight Lines Only

AUM, This proves that the asshole is the centre of the universe!

WARNING: Adult content /Based on the work of Benoît Mandelbrot an arch is only a series of straight lines changing angle in angular progression. The form is known as a fractal which repeats itself at multiple levels to infinite scales…

Mandelbrot Fractal

A circle with infinite radius is a line

In the following image, the red and green circles are inverses with respect to the grey circle. Notice that when the red circle passes through
the center of the inversion, the green circle becomes a line.

The Mandelbrot set has its place in complex dynamics, a field first investigated by the French mathematicians Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia at the beginning of the 20th century. The first published picture of the Mandelbrot set, by Robert W. Brooks and Peter Matelski in 1978 with the help of computers due to its infinite complex algorithms.

Although there is some disagreement amongst authorities about how the concept of a fractal should be formally defined. Mandelbrot himself summarized it as “beautiful, damn hard, increasingly useful. That’s fractals.” All built on and scaled from the triangular structure of crystalline mass.

How to make straight lines? (and curves?) A Virtual Guide

In Photoshop you can click somewhere
then holding down the shift-key and click somewhere else
and you get a straight line between the two clicked points. – See Adobe
In Illustrator you click on any line with the pointer and a handle appears
to manipulate any line with parabolic curves to infinite angles lengths and proportions

The Earth is Not Round, The Earth is Straight

“I have employed the weld extension and redrawn the circles and arcs multiple times. I have reset the 3rd dimension to include edges only.
The rest is just an illusion.” – Francis Picabia: Our Heads Are Round so Our Thoughts Can Change Direction

Francis Picabia

Among the great modern artists of the past century, Francis Picabia (French, 1879–1953) also remains one of the most elusive.

Also Chicago School of Art warns against the use of free thoughts or random associations, allowing only ideas to be implemented through
direct action to direct 2nd Dimensional linear thought into 3rd Dimensional fractal forms.

Walter Mehring

Walter Mehring   Schriftsteller (1896-1981) Carlton-Hotel München 1975

Der jüdische Autor Walter Mehring entkommt dem Holocaust, “wird amerikanischer Staatsbürger und kehrt 1953 aus dem Exil zurück. Zürich und München werden seine Bleibe – ein Zuhause in kleinen Hotels. Drei Jahrzehnte schreibt er an einem neuen Roman – 800 Seiten in Handschrift – einem Buch über das Leben im Exil. 1976 gehen sie verloren – irgendwo zwischen München und Zürich.

Auf diesem Foto, in seinem Hotelzimmer, lauscht er seiner Stimme – Texte aus seinem “verlorenen” Roman – gesprochen für uns – auf ein Tonband.

An Air on a Theramin:

Artodisiac's Blog

It is a shame that I have never ever heard about this magical so to speak instrument in my life. And I consider myself as a curious soundhunter! Anyway, better later than never. For the last couple of days, I am searching the net for a teeny weeny information about theremin. Now I have enough theoretical information waiting to be practiced in my next sound project. I am also thinking about using it as an interactive project for an exhibition on unconscious I am currently working on. I think it is quite an unearthly experience. What fascinated me was its resemblance to unconscious. As dreams reveal whatever lies under your conscious, theremin uncovers this dreamy sound that seems to come out of nowhere. You can not hear, see, or sense anything without it but theremin makes you tune the air and enables you to make the music of your body…

Instant: The Story of Polaroid
Andy Warhol Shootin’ Polaroid Doll

“Instant photography at the push of a button!” During the 1960s and ’70s, Polaroid was the coolest technology company on earth. Like Apple, it was an innovation machine that cranked out one must-have product after another. Led by its own visionary genius founder, Edwin Land, Polaroid grew from a 1937 garage start-up into a billion-dollar pop-culture phenomenon.

Christopher Bonanos, a culture editor at New York magazine, bought his first Polaroid camera second hand in 1982. His collection of cameras has since expanded, and he is now the author of Instant: The Story of Polaroid, a thorough history of instant photography and a nostalgic love letter to this disappearing technology. Enjoy the gallery.

“Nobody should touch a Polaroid until he’s over sixty. You should first do all that work…It reduces everything to your brains and taste,” Bonanos points out.
