Ralph tutorial 17th Nov. 2010 [Critical Journal Ep. 06]

One day in the tube a picture clear of my project came to my mind. I draw a scheme of he different scales of my project. I drawed the areas that I will have to explain for people to understand the project and the gap in which the project could be located.

I showed this sketches to my tutor for a further discusion from which I am going to writedown the feedback.

From the last tutorials he got this idea of the project: HOME+NETWORK and Emotional Anchors. And during my explanation he wrote down:

"Recipes for what are common traits/habits actions". "The space or LINK* between what we live with and what we carry with us".

* It is curious that in timeline the post about the
Collage worshop happened after this tutorial. Reading after a long time feedbacks or comments about a project make words have a different meaining.

Recomendations made at this time where looking at typologies like the keypad or the credit card. Both of them have a determinate size and they influence the design on other objects and also their use is extended in many different places and contexts.
"Is IKEA the keypad for our houses?" In this ocasion Ralph talked again about the concept of seeing the CITY AS A LIVING ROOM. Services like laundry, cooking, etc. will be dispersed within the city and you will be able to use them as you form part of the service.

Shops like
Muji, Uniqlo sell plain t-shirts, clean spaces with no to much personality into idea of instant shopping that can be translated into "instant home space".

Uniqlo is promoting its new Heat Tech innerwear by giving it away for free in Times Square next month. Three cheers! Free clothes! But the best part is how they plan to distribute the clothes: with a "giant human vending machine." Above you see a rendering of said giant human vending machine. We didn't understand what a giant human vending machine was, so we called up a Uniqlo rep to find out. This is how she described it:

"Basically we’re going to have two mimes. A male and a female mime inside the machine. And the public can see them through glass. When you get there, we’re going to have Uniqlo reps dressed in the silver bodysuits. And they’re going to hold a thermograph scanner — think of an airport security machine. The thermographer identifies cold spots in your body. After you go through that, you go to the vending machine and push a button and the mimes are going to do a synchronized choreographed routine and then your outfit comes out."

Oh hell yes. Women will go to the women's side and men will go to the men's side and get outfits for their respective genders. However only one size will be distributed, which "should fit your average body type." A few thousand will be given away. Here are event details:

WHAT: Free Uniqlo Heat Tech Innerwear Distributed by Giant Human Vending Machine WHERE: Military Island, Times Square Broadway and Seventh Avenue, between 43rd and 44th Streets WHEN: Tuesday, November 18, 1 p.m. 2008

I love UNIQLO is such a great brand. Not only the clothes but also the concept around it. It is going to be a Christmas target this weekend.
