Climbing-frame Tent (Klimrektent)

2009-12-15 21:54 - 0 Comments

I Transformed an existing climbing frame web into a big Nomad Tent.
Seventeen Kurdish, Turkish and Iraqi youngsters stopped playing football and came to sit in it.
People brought candles and some beer. We had nice chats about the problems in their neighbourhood. At midnight they helped me taking it down.

This way i want to reach a spontaneous moment!

Reactions:
- 'My dad has a restaurant, i'll get you a pizza!'
- Boy on phone: 'Come over here, relaxed sitting in a tent!'
- 'When are you coming again?'

The PEPcycle

2009-12-03 11:55 - 0 Comments

Uses a big Perspex dome with a long tube built into a slider leading from a side easy insertion level to a point just over cone leading to the base centre. Like a telescope observatory. At base centre in interior an old wood chipper motor/blade or shredder, geared to be connected to a cycle-powered input. You 'load' PEP bottles into the tube. You then slide it upright (using screwed in 330ml bottle handles) to drop into the cone.

Better Car Horns

People use their car horns for all sorts of messages: Celebrating after a sports match, telling a friend "I'm here" when sitting outside his house, saying "Thank you" to another driver who has let you drive first over a one-lane bridge or saying "Good bye" to family as they wave to you. Yet in every case, we use the same, purposefully-dissonant sound to express each message. This results in both noise pollution and ambiguity. I propose that we add a second horn to each new car and truck sold: A horn that is euphonious, not dissonant, one that plays a major third or major fifth.

Downtown, there are many public places which have become so famous that they people use them as meeting spots. No problem so far. Every person who come here is waiting and doing things in order to make minutes pass. There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.
