3 Comments on Thingen Werken und Stuffen: The Design of Things Photoblitz

After reading The Vignelli Canon, Tim Owen’s “We Are All Artists” statement and links, and listening to the Groom/Owens interview + talk, I felt well-armed to tackle Design Week.

5 Comments on The Wired Child – A Brainstormed Radio Show

I keep seeing what I think of as “young” themes of childlike elements recurring in episodes of “The Wire”. Maybe it’s child-like innocence? Maybe it’s an innocence that’s lost, or wistfully hoped for but never attained in our view into inner city Baltimore.

My vision for an audio project is a radio show episode of “The Wire” tying together some of these “young” themes...
