After a discussion with Becky, I have decided that a 1/2 scale plush Richard made from laser-cut  stacked slices of felt could be a really interesting project. In a follow up post I will talk about the viability of making the head a proximity tracking & turning head.

In terms of aesthetics & form language I am thinking of Antony Gormley meets Mark Jenkins.

The style and ‘creepiness’ of both these artists is really well balanced. I hope to push the creepiness but in an artistic way. Things like scale, materiality, posture and gesture will all play a part in this.

Great Running Blog/Inspiration


I love Helen Lavin’s running blog, “Live Life. Be Passionate“.   I may be a bit biased because I know her in person and know how great of a runner she is.  She is also very personable and humble about her accomplishments. ( Represented Ireland at the 2012 IAU 100k World Championship and a winner of numerous 100k and 100mile races in the USA ).

I really liked how she used quotes to describe why she runs, so I would like to incorporate few inspirational quotes on my instruction.
