MakerBotted Thing Among Maria Popova’s Favorite Possessions
I was just reading the latest entry from Brain Pickings’ Maria Popova, where she highlights what people would absolutely save from their home if it caught on fire. These photographs of small collections of very important things (like the one above) come from Foster Huntington’s project The Burning House: What Would You Take?
At the bottom of her post on the topic, Maria includes her own small bunch of treasures. Check out #7.
- Wallet (recycled newspaper and plastic bag, fromHOLSTEE)
- 1935 edition of Ulysses with sketches by Henri Matisseand 22-karat gold accents (Sure, the hefty tome would weigh me down — but I decided against the replaceable iPad and pair of giant Canon cameras in its favor.)
- MacBook Air
- Phrenology bike helmet hand-painted by artist Danielle Baskin
- Makerbot-printed space invader, a gift from a dear friend
- Two-finger yellow LEGO ring from C+
- 1993 edition of Gertrude Stein’s 1938 children’s book,The World Is Round
- Owl necklace from the 1950s, found in a middle-of-nowhere California vintage shop en route back from TED
- 1 TB external hard drive with all my personal data, 15 years of photos, 100GB of music, and just about every piece of digital content I’ve ever owned (Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1 TB USB 3.0/2.0, for the record)
- Original drawing of Paula Scher, one of my big design heroes, by my friend and illustrator extraordinaireWendy MacNaughton. It reads: “Impossible happens.”
- My Vibrams
MakerBotted gifts are special.
