I was cruising around ffffound.com , the typical place to get lost for unmeasurable amounts of time just drooling over excellent design, photography, and architecture.. when i came upon something familiar..


t
his installation piece was done by the university students, led by their professor,
but besides all that I thought it was pretty neat to see that it had made it on to ffffound, it just reassures that we have some rediculous ideas and talent right near by. i dig it. 

which brings me into my next area of concern, the inactivity of the local upstate AIGA. There have been regional meetings popping up on a fund your own basis called 
 these would be a great thing to get going.. perhaps i shall send out an open invitation to the world and see what happens? contact me if interested.
