Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.Claude Debussy
… Architects love pens, and although your architect probably already has a lonstanding love affair established with a very particular kind of felt tip or rollerball, …
This is true. Even as a lowly architecture student, I have already established a relationship with a particular pen: the Pilot G-Tec-C4 0.4mm. Black and red ink only please.

This is a project by Koki Tanaka. The first work I saw of his was his video “Turning the lights on” (2007) at Nuit Blanche last year. Almost 6 minutes of lamps being turned on. Unfortunately it wasn’t on youtube, but it is being displayed at the Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Art. Go see it, it’s brilliant.
