Booooooom Project: Pencil Submissions!

pencilproject11pencilproject4pencilproject7pencilproject3pencilproject5pencilproject10

Thank you to everyone who has already sent in pencils to our latest project! We’ve got so many already! Pencils are coming in from all over North America, UK, Asia, Australia, Brazil, even Sri Lanka – it’s amazing!

If you haven’t heard we are working with Tangible Interaction to build a collaborative sculpture in Barcelona for the IAM INTERNET festival. We’re using 3D-printed connectors to build a sculpture out of pencils mailed in from around the world. We want you to be a part of it!

1. Get a new or used pencil. The pencil can be round or hexagonal but should be standard width (if the pencil is too thick it will not fit our connectors) .

2. Use felts, paint, x-acto knife, whatever you want to decorate/personalize it. Include your name and city somewhere on it.

3. Photograph yourself holding your pencil. This part is optional but we would love to have a gallery of portraits of all the contributors.

4. Email your photo to: projects@booooooom.com with your NAME and CITY.

5. Mail your pencil (you can send as many as you like) to:

Tangible Interaction
304 – 1000 Parker Street
Vancouver BC V6A 2H2
Canada

OR

Imperfect Future
Attn: Andres Colmenares
Carrer Sant Gervasi de Cassoles 37

Illustrators and cartoonists around the world are paying tribute to those killed in the terrible shooting that just occurred at the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. 12 people were killed by the masked gunmen, including Charlie Hebdo’s editor and publisher Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier, and three cartoonists Jean “Cabu” Cabut, Georges Wolinski, and Bernard Verlhac (known as “Tignous”).

Many artists and newspapers took to Twitter using the hashtag #charliehebdo and #jesuischarlie to respond to the killings:

Tohu va Bohu” by Australian-born photographer Rebecca Scheinberg, a recent graduate of London College of Communications. Here she takes a commercial aesthetic and gives it a “trace of something more sinister, a hint that behind the veil of commercial charm, there is something darker at play.” Found via our December Submissions.
