Leonard has a skin! (And it's green and furry)

As these pictures show, we added the center piece to the dome that Shawn will secure to the… Continue

Important reminder of the relevance of Gregory Bateson

by Peter Harries-Jones


In honour of the centenary of Gregory Bateson’s birth (1904), this article revisits some of the themes of his posthumous publication, Angels Fear. Some of the book goes over ground that Bateson had covered in prior publications, yet it contains three new themes. The first of these concerned recursion. Generally unnoticed by the reviewers of the… Continue

The continuation of the DOME (aka - Leonard's head)

So two weeks ago we took our cardboard model and began rebuilding it with the foam. To our surprise, this wasn't quite as hard as we had expected. We figured that some modifications might need to be made in order to compensate for the extra inch of thickness not accounted for with the cardboard; however, this was not the case. (yay!) Here is a super speedy video documenting the process of building the top portion of the dome and the lower jaw.

WARNING: This looks much more productive… Continue

I had this revelation that, in the process of creation, its not about your technique but more so about how fast you can translate THOUGHT INTO ACTION. What you see is what you do. Technique is an afterthought. Sure there is a certain randomness that comes from being in the studio and letting impulse, gravity, weight, control you - but the more you "see" and can translate in real-time into bodily action, the more "true" your creation will be to your vision.

I envy graphic novel… Continue
