A view of Instrument Eight set up with Perry Kulper’s drawings and associated pieces in front and mine on the instrument behind. They can be seen in more detail in Pamphlet Architecture 34 – see HERE and HERE for North America and HERE for the UK / Europe

 

Pamphlet 34

Pamphlet 34

As it has been advertised on the Princeton Architectural Press website (see here), here is the cover of Pamphlet 34. The edition covers a range of work by Perry Kulper and myself including some new collaborative work that plays out some of the ideas we have been working with individually. It is also available on Amazon, see a few posts back for links.

Working with Perry worked out well and we are in hatching a few new plots at the moment.

This wonderful bronze torosaurus at the Yale Peabody Museum was sculpted by Michael Anderson (and helpers) working with as much scientific advice as the museum could muster. It is a fitter, leaner beast than we often see in recreations. I have mentioned Michel before in this blog (and there is a link to his excellent biography of James Perry Wilson in the Blogroll) – he was amazingly generous with his help, advice and his own research when I was working on my research into Wilson’s methods of diorama projection. You can see more about Michael’s work in this short film here.

The bridge of the Intrepid aircraft carrier on New York’s West Side is encrusted with add on programmatic pieces. Each of these pieces has a different language yet the whole thing still appears to make sense.
