member of:Observers of the Interdependence of Domestic Objects and Their Influence on Everyday Life


This group has been active for a long time and has already made some remarkable assertions which render life simpler from the practical point of view. For example, I move a pot of green color five centimeters to the right, I push in the thumbtack beside the comb and if Mr. A (another adherent like me) at this moment puts his volume about bee-keeping beside a pattern for cutting out vests, I am sure to meet on the sidewalk of the avenida Madero a woman who intrigues me and whose origin and address I never could have known...

Little Blue Ship

I have been in a coding cave for the past several weeks and have finally pulled together the Little Blue Ship.


The little ship still sails on the home page, but once you've entered the site, you find a large set of cabinets and drawers, and are invited to explore it thoroughly. Opening a drawer or a cabinet takes you to another page, such as the Apothecary's Cabinet:

 where, if you press on an image, you will go to the page with information or stories or maquettes from the development of that image....


There are several other cabinets, including a Cabinet of Ink and a Cabinet of Tales, and a cabinet devoted to the Artnap Project (still ongoing). Please explore, and touch lots of stuff, because what doesn't take you somewhere now will one day!

The link, as always, is to the right. You may also visit by pressing here.
