Melvin the Machine by HEYHEYHEY

Melvin the Machine by HEYHEYHEY from Dezeen on Vimeo.

In this movie filmed in a warehouse on the outskirts of Eindhoven, the ringing of an alarm clock triggers a chain of events that opens umbrellas, spins paper windmills, starts a fire and releases a set of parachuting toy animals.

Dutch design studio HEYHEYHEY originally constructed the machine, named Melvin, during Dutch Design Week 2010 but reassembled this improved version a year later.

I have been thinking about Lee today. Lee's mastery and total understanding of interdisciplinary practice involved the translation & connection of the human psyche. He used many methods: fetish, appropriation, historical figures, myth & 14th to the 21st century imagery that resulted in a body of fantastic fashion; how astounding. ♥ A.L.M.
