i saw some wooden palettes around my building recently. it could be a nice source of free material.
couple of days later i realised someone had similar idea:

shuttlecock feathers

one of my pound-shop treats

those feather structures remind me of this lamp by patrick jouin 

multiples: illusion




the whole bunch

pegs + latex

i wanted to fix the pegs permanently with each other, create a sort of panel, or a tile, where pegs are embedded into another structure. decided to pour some latex into the box.
once dry, its milky colour disappears to reveal amber-translucent view of the surface beneath it.
it allows for creating flexible but rigid structures.

it took ages to dry - eventhough i left it on a warm heated floor, it was at least 3 days before i could take it out of the box

i have tried painting some old fabric with latex - it gives a nice outcome. it is very rigid, probably waterproof and you can make it thicker by using thick fabric + leaving the latex to dry for couple of hrs before applying it (it thickens). i think i'm going to use it to make my camera-skin.

multiples - pegs

i started by connecting 100 pegs together, without using glue. it is a nice structural element, or a surface? the pegs hold together when i lift them (up to a certain point).

chair model

the braincase

rao proved that expanded polystyrene used for creating bike helmets doesn’t help much in absorbing the impact, but distributes it over the head. He developed Kranium – eco-friendly, lightweight ultimate solution. It is impregnated which makes it water-proof. Can be custom made to fit perfectly by using digital head scan. Most importantly – it absorbs 4 times the amount of impact energy comparing to regular helmet.

not only for animal lovers

slinky toy

'...his jobs was to test the horsepower on the mighty naval battleships. To do this, he would use a torsion meter, and a torsion meter required the use of a torsion spring.

One day, Richard saw one one of these springs fall off his desk. It rolled over itself in the most fascinating way. He brought it home to Betty and said, ''I think I can make a toy out of this."'
By Jeanne Marie Laskas

...shifting its weight from hand to hand, and it can be awfully hard to stop. But, sometimes you have work to do. That's when Slink-O-Matic comes in:

now my own slinky 3d model - it doesn't exactly represent the original, but its slinkiness is indubitable
