You can read the foreword Futures That Never Arrived by Bruce McCall here.
Please remember that you should have picked your theme and have already started with conceptualising your machine for our next meeting on Sunday.
Please start with your research by collecting images that are in some way related to your machine (e.g. material that you would like to use, interesting functions, similar interpretations of the same topic, etc.). Search also for machines that might have been produced in the past. We do not want to look like copy-cats by re-inventing something that somebody else has already done in a better matter. You will be asked to show images that inspired you during next class session. You will also be asked to present your re-shaped idea – everybody will be forced to give very critical feedback to that idea.
Over the next days and weeks you should tweak your concept over and over again. Be open for feedback. You should produce tons of scribbles, drawings, Photoshop stills or other kind of renderings, or visualisations, of every machine detail that you have in mind. From my point of view you should – from now on – spend at least 1,5 hours per day on your machine project.
