Gave this 30-min presentation earlier today, to a group of Interior Design late-year students in a private university in West Jakarta, who never heard about Eames. Maybe it’s a positive thing, or not? Your call. It’s for a class called Kapita Selekta which I never understand what exactly means. Googling it ended up with results such as scientific writing anthology + obscure shit like that. I decided to just wing it. Just make it up as I go.
It consists of a mix between my work + a few of others’ thrown in just to give a little context. It’s about hacking everyday objects, + most importantly, our own way of thinking. Against progress, development, speed, + the neverending more. I put RFAOH as my closing project.
Got home to my parents’ + staying over for the night, since tomorrow I don’t have to go to UI, + this other University is located nearby. I haven’t seen them for awhile, so it’s nice to catch up. In this city, although we’re only a few kilometers apart, thanks to the crazy traffic it’s really hard to just meet people. It’s either I have to organize the meeting with utmost attention to details for the day, or just spontaneously if we happen to be in the same area/attending the same event/etc.
No Mac here, so I’m using Windows + just realized how the Georgia font actually looks really different here.
