New design folio site up. This version is hand made from the ground up with help from my good friend's Ruby skills. Expect continual evolution & tinkering, maybe even more than one journal article. Feedback welcome!

I love typography. Here's a good example of the love applied.

Once a week I post up a picture I've taken of something that's caught my eye in the past week. It's an exercise in being aware & taking notice. This week's was some highly organised & obedient leaf detritus… http://bit.ly/Hdhlxo

In the world before the emergence of state organisation… 

"And then, this was early in my career, as I got more experienced in New Guinea, I realized, every night I sleep out in New Guinea forest. At some time during the night, I hear the sound of a tree crashing down. And, you see tree falls in New Guinea forest, and I started to do the numbers. Suppose the chances of a dead tree crashing down on you the particular night that you sleep under it is only one in 1,000. But suppose you're a New Guinean, who's going to sleep every night in the forest, or spend 100 nights a year sleeping out in the forest. In the course of 10 years, you will have spent a thousand nights in the forest, and if you camp under dead trees, and each dead tree has a one in 1,000 chance of falling on you and killing you, you're not going to die the first night, but in the course of 10 years, the odds are that you are going to die from sleeping under dead trees. If you're going to do something repeatedly that each time has a very low chance of bringing disaster. But if you're going to do it repeatedly, it will eventually catch up with you."

I found this excerpt from The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work to be exceptionally poignant.

"There are few jobs in which years' worth of labour can be viewed in a quick scan of four walls and even fewer opportunities granted to us to gather all our intelligence and sensitivity in a single place.  Our exertions generally find no enduring physical correlatives.  We are diluted in gigantic intangible collective projects, which leave us wondering what we did last year and, more profoundly, where we have gone and quite what we have amounted to.  We confront our lost energies in the pathos of the retirement party.

How different everything is for the craftsman who transforms a part of the world with his own hands, who can see his work as emanating from his being and can step back at the end of a day or lifetime and point to an object -- whether a square of canvas, a chair or a clay jug -- and see it as a stable repository of his skills and an accurate record of his years, and hence feel collected together in one place, rather than strung out across projects which long ago evaporated into nothing one could hold or see."

The Roundtable are doing their bi-weekly 2 hour show on RadioValerie.org tonight from 10. Another ultra-fringe selection, all original vinyl. I'm going to play some Lichens, James Blackshaw, Beaches, Casa Sui, Nuno Canavarro, Peter Michael Hamel, as befits this dark grey Melbourne evening… Tune up, drink it in!

I made a few posters for Tractor Design School's Semi Permanent poster competition. The topic was "the individual", which I had a hard time working with at the start. So many things around me seem to be individualist, but are really not. The end works reflect that. Check them out below:
