This past Saturday saw the public presentation of this piece designed by Tempt One at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. The making of the piece was an inspiring collaborative project, with assists by Angst, Defer, Eyeone, Prime, and Slick; sculpting by Jessee Clarkson of Nascent Perspective; and logistical support from the Not Impossible Foundation.
My nephew was amongst the many people who were very, very impressed by Tempt's piece. The ability to explore the sculpture allowed viewers to engage with and examine the letterforms from every angle. After carefully studying the letters, my nephew spelled out the T-E-M-P-T and, needless to say, I was super hyped!

A good friend of mine recently pointed me to the photography of Frédéric Chaubin and I was immediately blown away. His documentation of amazing former Soviet Union architecture seems like it was gathered in the future. Above are a few examples that particularly grabbed my attention. You can see more of his architectural photography from the USSR here. (Thanks King Tusk!)
