Always Watching

So, you guys know how I draw little Bill Cipher doodles in my students’ notebooks and on their papers sometimes, right?

I was mainly doing it to make grading more interesting for myself.

…And maybe fun and educational for my kids.

Well, I was grading notebooks a few days ago when I started noticing something…




I am so proud. Terrified, and proud.

Clothes Horse by Aaron Dunkerton

The dimensions of my clothes horse are 56cm long, 32 wide and 23cm high when it is collapsed so it is much easier to store than a conventional clothes airer which are normally awkward sizes and hard to hide when not in use. When in use its dimensions are 56cm deep, 112cm wide and 112cm tall. The shape of my clothes horse when erect allows for good air circulation around the clothes, which will help them to dry faster.

The design comprises a locking arm which keeps the clothes horse in it collapsed form so that when it is being moved and stored between uses it is easier to carry.

“ was a school project that spawned out of a challenge to create an identity for a new social network. Rather than make another Facebook I thought it would be interesting to brand a modern esoteric society for thieves. I decided to call my social network as a play on anonymous. Since it was a network for thieves I combined the letter A with a ski mask to create the logo. To keep inline with the theme of anonymity and thievery I contained the information on the business card within a safe dial, turned the letterhead into a modern treasure map, made the envelopes security deposit bags, and the style guide a blueprint.”

Justin Ross Tolentino (Juroto for short) loves making things! Logos, websites, doodles, noise, food, moves, jokes - doesn’t matter what it is really, because if there’s one thing he specializes in it’s turning ideas into reality. Kind of like a wizard except without the beard, robe, hat, and magic wand. Okay, perhaps a wizard was a bad analogy. Although it would be awesome if he could just wave his hands about and have pencils drawing by themselves, dancing to the beat of keyboards typing code, while he sats in his castle, sipping on some coffee from a dragon’s tooth goblet, coming up with ideas, but that’s a bit of a fantasy. For now, he does all the hard work himself from a quaint duplex somewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area.

From the Teaching Archives: Anastassia Fulmer (BFA 2012)

Anastassia Fulmer was one of the most prolific and versatile printmaking students I have taught at Stamps School.  Reverently prolific, she produced great many prints, artists books and print installations and, following her graduation, has been working as my studio assistant in my print studio. Here is her clever little artist “woodbook” printed, in the final image, as a woodblock print on Rives BFK, as well onto thinner veneer ¼" plywood before being cut into 12 smaller blocks to make an artist “woodbook.”  Awesome work Anastassia! -Endi

Mapped Domesticity | Vere van Gool
Location: Salton Territory, California, USA
- AA School of Architecture Projects Review 2012 - Inter 1

- In the desert, all you need is gas, cash and a place to crash… This commentary-project is the rework of the 1950’ies design of the American Farm through a critical reading of the landscape and how land exploitation operates according to the speculated decay of the Salton Territory, proposing the American Farm as a condensed symbol of the late 2020’ies over-accelerated sense of mobility, contra intuitive consumerism and manic domestic consequences of (utopian) American Life.

Lisbon Garden  |  Thomas Wing-Evans

- Lisbon has a long history of calamity and resilience. Radical self-reliance is also a contemporary phenomenon. Voids in the city centre are accumulating at an alarming rate. The combination of these components inspires an experimental pilot project, operating in equal measures as an agricultural programme and community cultivator.
