Another “MOMO Maker” as research/inspiration for what Eltono and I are doing – I calculated there’s 10,000,000,000,000,000 variations here, but it always manages to look like a Vuarnet beach towel.  Enjoy.

& this one preceeded it.

Making Makers

Very busy with Eltono. Its 4 in the morning: I’ve been creating a more “Makers“…

The Last New Yorker

August 17, 2008

Eric convinced me to sell the last New Yorker street poster I had. And then sent this amazing photo of it floated & framed (its a huge piece). Thanks Eric! They were made using this wacky system I’d devised for copiers. Calculating 400% and 300% backwards gave me the “tile” which were over-lapped just enough to trim the gutter & glue them together. All this on one sheet of paper that could be copied to the back of your copied original and you’re set.

This is the grid that’s copied to the back of your original. Over the years I’d added notes like resulting sizes after trim and overlap at 400% 300% 800%, so I could be sure to fill certain spaces.

Eltono Summer

August 12, 2008

The fantastic Eltono is in Brooklyn! We’ll be working on projects all Summer.

Favorite Street Project of 2008 so far

Sitting at my computer today I heard a high pitch squeal for easily 30 minutes. I recognized it was someone pushing a folding cart with a bad wheel, but you could hear it for blocks, it was so loud and penetrating. EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
So I grabbed a can of oil by the door and walked outside, following the sound, and found a very old woman walking slowly.  I asked her if she would like some oil. Two squirts – done.   She was so nice, she tried to pay me a quarter. (!)


I had a chance to talk about MOMO Maker process with architecture grad students at Espeis, back in July. There are many systems like the “Maker” already in use, especially in architecture (!) Very interesting. Commonwealth Studio is Espeis dazzling parent (architectural) operation. It was fun. (cc) by nc nd 2017 MOMO
