A World Away…

A World Away...

This picture is largely based on the last time I ever saw the Twin Towers, which was in January 2000. We had just celebrated the Millennium in Clearwater, Florida, and were flying back to Europe via New York JFK, which we flew to aboard a Delta Airlines Boeing 727. As we made out final approaches to JFK International, I managed to see a view very similar to this, with the skyscrapers of Manhattan sillhouetted against the setting sun. But because I have such little detailed memory of this beautiful moment in my life, I decided to take my lead from this astounding picture below, which is also taken from a Delta Airlines Boeing 727, but only this one is landing at La Guardia:


Yes I know it’s another World Trade Center one, and at this rate I’m going to offend every American follower I have, but there is quite an interesting story to this picture. I actually scribbled this drawing down in 2009 because I was going to make it my masterpiece of masterpieces, and I really wanted to show my Grandma it too. I did the initial drawing and scanned it and was going to make a start on coloring it in, but all kinds of real life distractions pulled me away, such as schoolwork and whatnot. And so for 4 years this sat on my computer in my pictures folder, occasionally with me peering over it but largely forgotten about. At some points I was even tempted to delete it because I felt I would never get round to finishing it.

But last weekend I decided that I was sick and tired of this thing being sat on my computer gathering dust, so I decided to finish it off. However, to my everlasting shame I finished it three years too late for my Grandma to ever see as she sadly passed away in 2010, leaving me with something I had promised myself to complete, but never got round to in time. I hope one day when we meet in a better place I will finally be able to show my Grandma the drawing I devoted to her.

On 9/11 I was traveling in Xingjiang Province in China, waiting for the night train from Turpan Zhan to Dunhuang. By chance, there was an Internet cafe next to the train station, so I went in and found a computer between some Chinese soldiers and a young Uyghur man chatting online with friends. Most Western news organizations were blocked in China, but Excite.com, where I had an email account, somehow got past the censors. When the page loaded, I saw the news that the WTC had been hit by a plane.

It just so happened that my girlfriend in Japan (now my wife) was online and so she relayed to me the news she was watching on her television. Occasionally, I would look around, only to find that the Chinese world was still unaware of what was happening on the other side of the planet.

When it came time to board my train, I was left in the dark. How many more planes were out there? Who was doing it? What would the world look like when I had a chance to check the Internet the next day. Looking around at the Chinese web surfers, I knew that nobody within hundreds of miles had heard the news. In fact, it would be another day before the Muslim inhabitants of Western China were allowed to hear about the attacks. And so, I had only my dark thoughts on that long, lonely trip.

NYC – MoMA: Design and the Elastic Mind – XO Laptop

NYC - MoMA: Design and the Elastic Mind - XO Laptop

XO Laptop, from the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project, 2005-ongoing
Nicholas Negroponte (American, b. 1943), Rebecca Allen (American, b. 1953), Mary Lou Jepsen (American, b. 1956), Mark Foster (American, b. 1960), Michail Bletsas (Greek, b. 1967) and V. Michael Bove (American, b. 1960) of One Laptop per Child (USA, est. 2005)
Yves Béhar (Swiss, b. 1967) and Bret Recor ( American, b. 1974) of fuseproject (USA, est. 1999)
Jacqes Gagné (Canadian, b. 1959) of Gecko Design (USA, est. 1996)
Colin Bulthaup (American, b. 1976) of Squid Labs (USA, est. 2004)
John Hutchinson (South African, b. 1952) of Freeplay Energy Pic. (South Africa, est. 1996)
Quanta (Taiwan, est. 1988)

The XO Laptop is an inexpensive computer conceived by One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a nonprofit program behun at the MIT Media Lab, to be distributed to governments and nongovernmental organizations to schools all ove the globe. XO is the size of a textbook and lighter than a lunchbox. Many features serve at least two purposes: Wireless-access antennas double as covers for the USB ports, the handle serves as an attachment for a strap, and the protective bumpter also seals to protect dust. The screen has both a full-color mode and a reflective high-resolution mode that is readable in bright sunlight, and a wide track pad doubles as a drawing and writing tablet. If electricity is not available, the computer can be recharged by human-powered devices such as a yoyo-like pull cord.

Design and the Elastic Mind, on exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art from February 24-May 12, 2008, explores the reciprocal relationship between science and design in the contemporary world by bringing together design objects and concepts that marry the most advanced scientific research with attentive consideration of human limitations, habits, and aspirations. The exhibition highlights designers’ ability to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and history—changes that demand or reflect major adjustments in human behavior—and translate them into objects that people can actually understand and use.


The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) was founded in 1929 and is often recognized as the most influential museum of modern art in the world. Over the course of the next ten years, the Museum moved three times into progressively larger temporary quarters, and in 1939 finally opened the doors of its midtown home, located on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in midtown.

MoMA’s holdings include more than 150,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and drawings, and design objects. Highlights of the collection inlcude Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Salvador Dali’s The Persisence of Memory, Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiseels d’Avignon and Three Musicians, Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, Piet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie, Paul Gauguin’s The Seed of the Areoi, Henri Matisse’s Dance, Marc Chagall’s I and the Village, Paul Cezanne’s The Bather, Jackson Pollack’s Number 31, 1950, and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. MoMA also owns approximately 22,000 films and four million film stills, and MoMA’s Library and Archives, the premier research facilities of their kind in the world, hold over 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, and extensive individual files on more than 70,000 artists.
