I’ve been messing around with concrete blocks as another material to accompany the laser cut model from a pervious post. The results have have not come to a fixed conclusion yet, but the Mould, with the help of Andreas Buchwaldt , has become a structure unto itself. What started as an average box (image one) has become a machine enhanced-vibrating monolith (image 3). Video later if you are lucky.

The Critical Whirl. ‘I’ve read too much Marx and I can’t get my words out’
Circle hand clockwise in a small but rapid motion towards the audience.
Accelerate and repeat until idea unpacked.

ha it’s tru sometimes you gotta wind it out

Advanced users are able to throw a tick in between whirls. Whirl, Nose scratch, Whirl.

 Meredith has new illustration work up, and its awesome!meredithsadler:

"Stayed True to my Roots" (Genuine Authentic Soundbites series)
Each piece in this series appropriates a generic PR statement commonly used to help a star appear candid and relatable, in an attempt to draw attention to the banality of the celebrity authenticity apparatus.
Three 16”x16” pieces (which can be seen on my portfolio website) were created for the group exhibition “R.I.P. Morgan Freeman,” curated by Melody Blue-Klassen and held at Gallery 1313 in Toronto. The show featured work inspired by the infamous 2012 internet incident in which false news of Freeman’s death was hysterically and virally spread through the internet.
"Genuine Authentic Soundbites" was inspired by the discovery that, perhaps by virtue of his compelling narration and having occupied roles such as God, Freeman was ranked Forbes magazine’s most trustworthy celebrities. Prints of the work are available.

I was the visiting artist at Sterling Hall School last week where I met some wonderfully talented Grade 3,6, & 7 students. They were the greatest kids and I was treated as something of a celebrity. However this didn’t stop them from asking some great questions about my Boomtown drawings including

"is everything in the world in this drawing?" and "where are all the people?"

We turned the presentation into a sort of eye-spy game to see what they could find in Boomtown. I was surprised to learn, thanks to a misidentification, that all the kids knew who Betty Boop was (Has she been rebooted recently?).

The staff was absolutely great and have made a stellar arts program. I must thank them again for having me.

At the moment I know nothing about these buildings, but I imagine they were made with this thought in mind.  ”What is better than one Chrysler building. TWO CHRYSLER BUILDINGS!” Nice job Dubai.

. UPDATE: 

They are the Business Central Towers owned by the AL Kazim Group. In Dubai Media City, a tax-free zone with in Dubai. I get the sense that there are offices, cafes,gyms, and other similar businesses inside, but as of yet I can’t find a list of building tenants.
