Ok this one is going to take some explaining...It all started last semester when one of my industrious classmates decided to start a new venture called J-Mart. Basically, J-Mart sells all kinds of candy and sodas and is based out of a fridge near the owner's desk. You can go at any time and make a purchase by leaving your money in a cash box. It's pretty much run on the honor system. It is a really great idea for any for any architecture school because sometimes the vending machine only has jalepeno potato chips or cherry blaster donuts with flavor bits - i know it sounds terrible, but trust me if it's late enough and you're desperate enough you'll do something you'll really regret the next day. Thankfully J-Mart can save you by providing a delicious alternative.
So the next thing I need to explain is the "web of curiousity/distraction/procrastination" that our studio has been working on. Basically it is a crazy voronoi mesh explosion that we have been constructing over our desks since the semester started. It is all made out of stainless steel wire. it is an ephemeral canopy that is a great way to waste time by working on.
So what better marriage could there be than between the web and J-Mart? It is the perfect re-appropriation of infrastructure, and it is called Snack Heaven. All the little snack packs are hung using binder clips, and you can make a purchase for 50 cents.
I know what you're going to say. You have time for snack enterprises, but what about studio???! Hey, listen, there are only so many hours that one can take working on robots before you start to lose it...ok buddy?!
