late report for yesterday, 2015 11 03. I had some dental work in the morning, and got a migraine as we were driving to the appointment. this knocked me out for most of the day.
I did manage to do some online searching for the F/LOSS sofa for Casa Jasmina. Someone already created a Filo Sofa, and it is admirable, if not sensored. I posted a link on Tumblr. I also posted a link to a sofa by Mario Bellini and another, Extrasoft, by Pioero Lissoni. the contrast among Filo Sofa and Extrasoft is interesting. the former is a monolithic frame and the latter is modular. this suggests an area of the possibility space to explore.
I find it alluring to think I could produce a workflow native to an iPad. this wouldn’t be end-to-end F/LOSS because the iOS and iPad are closed, but I’ve got another project in the hopper that might result in a Raspberry Pi tablet, or some other System On a Chip (SOC) driving.
I’m going to see if this journal of work in progress can be a sustainable part of my practice.
Oh, and I’ve linked this catalog/portfolio/flatfile to Tumblr through JetPack, so a summary will appear there and link back to the full-text here. this is a test of that system.
Oh, and I’ve tweaked the settings of flatfile for when it creates thumbnails back to the recommended sizes. let’s see if that makes a difference.
