Yo yo to mi peepool in the AAD ; )
Next time you want to make a project/parody so everyone can have a laugh with please consider the following guide:
a. find a f*cking amazing reference
b. make sure its a piece of work much better than you can ever imagine making yourself
c. make sure you have no idea what is it about
d.or simply follow the steps of a pokemon known as Rahul Vishwakarma from Oxford (cough cough) Brookes
I suppose you are all familiar with the Presidents’ Medal winner of 2009 Nicholas Szczepaniak and his “Defensible Architecture” project.
Anyway, the point is not to praise his work rather than have a laugh or two with all these stupid little bitches that go around crying “ooooh thats just a speculation, ooh dude thats so superficial, arggh I wish i could do something ectoplasmatic for once so i can look cool, pff im a nooob, etc” ….and then end up working for more than a year on a pure copy-paste mode.
—-0— There will be more posts about PM entries of 2011 mainly composed by “hahah” “OMG” “WTF” or “LOL” comments as done in the past. However here we thought it would be unethical to not intervene!
1)Lets see how the design process of Rahul started. He followed carefully the above list and analysed one of his favorite projects as seen bellow
ALL he ever wanted:
was to do something that might look A BIT LIKE THIS !!
IS IT THAAAT BAD??
We can go on and talk about the difference between copying and stealing something but is useless since you bots prefer to scroll up and down than think for a minute. Dont worry the images are self.explanatory
where the f*ck to start and where the f*ck to finish?
If you still dont get that is made of some elements that MOVE and some elements that are VERTICAL and THIN you can read a bit of Rahul’s description (its all about narrative duuuude)
.…..They glisten as salt crystals refract the azure-tinted spectacle.
My feet, pressed against uneven ammonites, throb as I pass motionless Lymers and seasoned visitors watching a passenger-laden boat voyage towards a MONUMENTAL engine.
Rhythmical mechanical creaking and groaning overwhelming calls from overhead seagulls, as fish/bird-shaped counterweights slowly appear from the sea. Using binoculars I witness gears and cogs tirelessly pumping intertwined machines; silhouettes Fishing, Diving, Chatting, Pointing, and Staring
Bellow: The finest of experimentation. Up to you to check whos the COPY and whos the PASTE
We could continue writing but is sad and have better things to do like: have some tea with Renzo’s wife or even better play fetch with the 3 new interns of Bernard. All we could say is that Rahul Vishwakarma and his fantastic project in the middle of nowhere will not win…..since there are NO BIRDS in the drawings. Its obvious that Nicholas had an edge with his birdy drawings
ciao for now,
Rahul you can either
A.paint yourself blue and jump in the sea
B.read AA’s catalogue for some change this week
