objectified



After checking out the website and watching some of the clips, I am dying to see Objectified now:

OBJECTIFIED, by filmmaker Gary Hustwit, is the second installment in his trilogy on design (his first was Helvetica). OBJECTIFIED encourages us to stop and notice our surroundings and to think critically about creativity and consumption. Who makes all these objects, and why do they look and feel the way they do? How can good design make these things—and by extension our lives—better?


And for a little fun, find out what object you are. This is similar to, but better than, those lame Facebook quizzes. I am a VW Beetle. Interestingly, a blue toy Beetle (because I've loved them since I was a wee tot) and a Bond Street Underground sign (it was the tube station nearest where I worked years ago) are the only decorative design products I have in my studio.

PS Thanks again, Donn.
