Wayward

Style experimentation inspired by text-based RPG games and monochrome screens. I plan to expand on this direction through the year.

Hi!

Here a fashion film that I made with the stunning Brandi Quinones some days ago.

The Roots

The Roots, a typographic piece created for the Keystone Design Union. The KDU espouses many masonic ideals and is connected to the Freemasons of New York. Scottish Thistle, Irish Clover, and British and American Roses reflect the entwined historical roots of the Freemasonry organisation.

A Hoberman sphere as an icosidodecahedron

In geometry, an icosidodecahedron is a polyhedron with twenty triangular faces and twelve pentagonal faces. An icosidodecahedron has 30 identical vertices, with two triangles and two pentagons meeting at each, and 60 identical edges, each separating a triangle from a pentagon. As such it is one of the Archimedean solids and more particularly, a quasiregular polyhedron.

An icosidodecahedron has icosahedral symmetry, and its first stellation is the compound of a dodecahedron and its dual icosahedron, with the vertices of the icosahedron located at the midpoints of the edges of either. Convenient Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of an icosidodecahedron with unit edges are given by the cyclic permutations of (0,0,±τ), (±1/2, ±τ/2, ±(1+τ)/2), where τ is the golden ratio, (1+√5)/2. Its dual polyhedron is the rhombic triacontahedron. An icosidodecahedron can be split along several planes to form pentagonal rotundae, which belong among the Johnson solids.

In the standard nomenclature used for the Johnson solids, an icosidodecahedron would be called a pentagonal gyrobirotunda.

[edit] Area and volume

The area A and the volume V of the icosidodecahedron of edge length a are:

A = (5sqrt{3}+3sqrt{25+10sqrt{5}}) a^2  approx 29.3059828a^2
V = frac{1}{6} (45+17sqrt{5}) a^3 approx  13.8355259a^3.

[edit] Related polyhedra

The icosidodecahedron is a rectified dodecahedron and also a rectified icosahedron, existing as the full-edge truncation between these regular solids.

The Icosidodecahedron contains 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron and 20 triangles of the icosahedron:

It is also related to the Johnson solid called a pentagonal orthobirotunda created by two pentagonal rotunda connected as mirror images.

Eight uniform star polyhedra share the same vertex arrangement. Of these, two also share the same edge arrangement: the small icosihemidodecahedron (having the triangular faces in common), and the small dodecahemidodecahedron (having the pentagonal faces in common). The vertex arrangement is also shared with the compounds of five octahedra and of five tetrahemihexahedra.

Another one for the books folks. CLICK HERE to check out the coverage on Madbury Club of Taylor C. Pemberton’s latest project, CAVALIER ESSENTIALS

“Cavalier Essentials is a line of vintage products designed for the rugged, yet sophisticated gentleman. Cavalier was always briefly explained as–”If Steve McQueen carried a beat-up leather duffle bag on the back of his motorcycle; what would be in it and how would the products look?” This simple idea married an appreciation for lifestyle design and vintage accessories. All of the products possess a hand-made quality while responding to the modern influences of today’s culture.”

For more, be sure to check out the Cavalier website at: www.cavalieressentials.com Also, in conjunction with the release of Cavalier, I’ve released my new website at http://taylorpemberton.com

February 2011 : PORCELAIN UNICORNS STUDIO

If some of you wonder where i was during these last months, i’ve been working hard on this project.

New direction – New ideas – Second breathe

The website will be published during february 2011, showcasing brand new projects from motion graphics to illustration, art & typography… The beginning of a new era for me, unleashed from some creative habits to the profit of experimentation, art, new horizons…

www.porcelainunicorns.com

ENJOY.

Some friends of mine recently built a mini ramp in the basement of their apartment in Bed-Stuy, BK. A truly homemade mini, the ramp is made from plywood, with the occasional duct-tape patched hole, coping found on the street, and the possibility of 3″ splinters, this ramp is no joke. But, of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way–there’s nothing like escaping the cold to skate with some friends on a private, indoor mini ramp. In addition to the ramp, the basement is also the home of their full band set up, so their guests can shred to some home cooked live music. These guys are living the skateboarder dream out in BK. Here are some shots from a recent session there:
