Dear all,

It was a pleasure working with all of you last week. Each of you produced an amazing body of work in just 5 days! Congratulations. Upon returning to Philly, I headed straight to Penn to help my own students install their final exhibition of work. I talked up your work considerably. Two exhibitions in two days . . . whew! I'd love to see some photos of the final exhibition. Send them my way if you have any. Stay in touch and best to you in your final term stretch.

For those of you that are interested in pushing ahead with some of the concepts and techniques that I introduced, following are some great websites to consult. I also highly suggest that you check out Informal by Cecil Balmond, 1000 Years of Nonlinear History by Manuel De Landa and essays by Sanford Kwinter.

Hi all,

I dropped off the last batch of laser-cut files for the plexi early this morning (including your updated files, Chris - thx). I have also sent the remaining drawings. All of the drawings have plotted (finished this morning at 7:30!). So, we should be good to go. Please pick up your laser-cut pieces and assemble + paint your models. Also, we will need to trim the drawings down. Please bring some cutting mattes and cutting knives.

see you at 1:30,
