I heard they give baaad advice

February 16, 2010

As I design my little business idea, I find the craziest stuff. Check out these Rotary Phone Sheep from Jean Luc Cornec:

“Apart from the visually striking animation that is achieved by these static sculptures, what becomes especially compelling is the feeling of being stared down by both an animal and obsolete technology at the same time. The rotary phone, not unlike a country flock of sheep, has entered its own era of quaint – that is, quaint like letter-writing, quaint like the churning of butter – archaic and nostalgic.

With more and more items at one point considered essential, now placed to the wayside, it makes you wonder what in today’s world is next to follow such a fate.”

I think my personal fate is to deal in these quaint, archaic, nostalgic crafts. Does this mean I need to sew a wench costume and walk around the rennie faire with a turkey leg in one hand and dress up Pockets like my pet dragon? I do believe so, friends.
