eXTReMe Tracker
Friday, July 16, 2004
Chrysler Heritage is a new(ish) website indicative of a major growth area for car companies right now - controlling and presenting your heritage. The traditional motor museum can't really compete with the architectural might and curatorial power of the manufacturers themselves. Check the forthcoming Mercedes-Benz museum, a swirling design by UN Studio, or Audi's Museum Mobile by their factory in Ingolstadt. Others go further, such as Coop Himmelb(l)au's BMW Welt, an 'event and delivery centre' in Munich. Managing one's image - and the story of how things came to be - is so much easier if you control the whole package.

Inexplicable Objects, things that demand a little explanation / how to make a book with people youíve never met: Toy Camera / Notebook, designer Mark Simonsonís weblog featuring type and trivia (we especially like the self-confessedly geeky examination of the computer source code used in Terminator 2).

The sounds of Lord Haw-Haw (via Haddock), WW2's most celebrated traitor. Vaguely related, the closure of Berlin's Tempelhof Airport has been announced (link is to to Tempelhof, a collaboration 'between Tom America and visual artist Rob Moonen' that celebrates the city, the airport and its role in the famous post-war airlift). There are some excellent photos to be found there. The huge structure was designed by Ernst Sagebiel in 1941, but is now little-used. No word yet as to what will happen to the huge buildings. Read 'Lunch at Tempelhof', Hugh Pearman's elegiac piece on travelling through the terminal (from things 10).

If you so desire, FAB1 is up for grabs. The model (i.e. puppet-scale) six-wheeled pink Rolls-Royce is one of the more celebrated TV cars in history. Sadly, the new FAB1 is absolutely horrible - utterly devoid of wit or invention. It's a big pink merchandising opportunity (not that the original wasnít marketed to death either). The original features strongly in this episode.

Artists Tyler Brett and Tony Romano take the term 'Carchitecture' literally with a series of prints. More images at the exhibition Beyond Terminal City from 2002 / French popstar fashion at Bardotagogo / personal pictures of Osaka Expo 1970, truly one of the great world expos. Check the Pepsi Pavilion (buried on the servers of the Interactive Telecommunications Program of the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. See more projects in their gallery). More Osaka images.

Missing Items, Found, a new book (via Caterina) / Look-Look Magazine, put together by young photographers, writers and artists / photologgers are making bigger and bigger images: Infrangible, Dyswis.
