Above: Pins & Thread by Debbie Smyth is created by stretching threads between pins. Smyth says: "Myriad pins and lines of thread are given a new lease of life as floating linear structures. Each one plotted and measured accurately to depict the hated obtrusion of the electricity pylon which themselves are floating lines in space. Suspended interlocking stitched and printed units are mechanisms of movement and change as they play with power of pattern to emerge as light and shadow.

    arty design , trendy design , conceptual design, eye catching design,ego design, me too design, followers design ..but design without art or trend and with more hidden innovation is also design of he future…

    I really love the ‘idea’ of ‘The Physical Value of Sound’ but can’t help but instantly think of the practicalities of such a thing. We are definitely moving towards a time when we cant physically ‘see’ what we are playing. I still am undecided on whether this is a good or a bad thing. Being a lover of records and buying old second, third and fourth hand music, its the physical form, the feel and a lot of the time the graphic art that I connect with just as much as the music. Interesting…

    I also love the pins and thread drawings of the pylons. Great use of medium for the subject matter and a medium that I think works extremely well to convey the idea. Great work.
