These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

I hope you don't post them out to your collectors - any package sent by royal mail generally ends up with its contents pulverised...

So far, none have ever arrived broken. I tend to pack things very well, and Ive sent them to the UK all over the US and the Netherlands.

the mind boggles... I'm trying to imagine how to go about wrapping an eggshell.

bronxelf says:

two layers of bubble wrap and a correctly sized, heavy duty cardboard box (it's cube shaped, which leads to much less crushing than a rectangular box)

The box must not shake or rattle in any way once sealed.

so it's easier than I imagined...

It's really not that hard provided you kow how to do it. Having the correct shaped box is a big help in this. The cube shape is more stable than a rectangle and the box is small- the bubble wrapping and other "stuffing" fill the box completely, making it impossible for the egg to shift around. The box is too small to be placed "under" larger, heavier items. even if you toss the box on top(which I am sure is done frequently, due to its small size and nearly nonexistent weight) It will not harm the contents. The box really would need to be crushed, which is not as easy as you might think, when all sides are of the same dimension.

thanks also in part to the magnificent 'design' of eggs. it's virtually impossible to break an egg by pushing its two elongated ends inwards (presuming the shell is still intact). spherical eggs would break far more easily.

The almost ethereal blue glow inside is very nice.
