Some exciting news ...

It was lovely to learn I had been selected to join the first ever design team on Archi-scraps, a relatively new challenge blog based on architecture and finding inspiration from the exteriors of buildings.

The February inspiration is already up ...

Present a layout (or card) using a headshot(close up) of a person and use bling.

Czech artist David Černý's North Carolina piece 'Metalmorphosis.'

Maybe it is because it is a giant, mirrored head which rotates, spits water, deconstructs and reconstructs before our eyes. Or perhaps it is the fact that the whole thing is filmed on webcam so you can keep tabs on it at all times. But it's most likely because 'Metalmorphosis' makes our world look the way we secretly hoped it would when we saw 'Terminator' for the first time.

The mammoth undertaking weighs 14 tons, and the "seven-metre tall structure with horizontally-moving stainless-steel plates... form, and re-form, a giant metal head." Since 2007, it has been on display at the Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.here's a link to a video where you can watch it move.


Come play along with us.

Congratulations. I have a couple of photos of a large mosaic head waiting to be scrapped so I may give it a whirl.
