Love Letter to Plywood, by Tom Sachs

YouTube player

[Video Link] Sculptor Tom Sachs made this wonderful seven-and-a-half minute film about his loved for the wondrous properties of plywood. This makes me want to run out, by a sheet, and start making stuff out of it, like this chair I saw in a photo of a house designed by architect John Lautner in 1947.

    Watch out! The video is safe, but one of the author’s websites linked to from the Youtube description appears to be compromised. NOD 32 reports that contains a trojan, while Google flags the site as potentially harmful.

    Cool video, though.
