Cut It, Fold It

Drawn from Robert Freidus' extensive collection, Cut it, Fold it: Build it with Paper is a major exhibition at V&A Museum of Childhood featuring nearly 200 examples of architectural paper models. Half the models are still flat as they were sold.

Collecting and making paper models has been a popular pastime since the later part of the eighteenth century, with many companies producing very collectible models. There was no pre-cutting or scoring on these models, so patience and a steady hand were crucial.

Love and Death in the Time of Facebook

Love and Death in the Time of Facebook

English Translation of Lyrics with Hyperlinks:

The black list, the hit list,
the list of Google's world wide web....
I swerved through the dark corners of the filtered Net
Finally, I found you on Facebook, I ADDED you
-- and you IGNORED me.
Hundreds, hundreds of times...
I didn't falter, I didn't give up
I UPDATED my STATUS so the world would know:

You are the hunter and I am the prey!
And I'm trying to fall into your trap!
Yes, I've been all over LinkedIn, MySpace, ORKUT,
trying to fall into your trap...

I had the guys from FARS NEWS AGENCY PHOTOSHOP my PROFILE picture
and make me look cool.

I uploaded romantic pictures of the sunset from FLICKR to my
ALBUMS and CAPTIONED them with silly quotes from OSHO
-- And finally, you ACCEPTED me
I FOLLOWED you like a shadow in the COMMUNITIES.
Everything you LINKED, I LIKED,
and I SHARED too
I TAGGED your name under YouTube videos,
I through myself against doors and WALLs
Whether you think of me or not, I'll never forget you.
My eyes are peeled, searching for you.
I'll send you GIFTS, so that you'll realise
-- I'll never forget you.

That's my cue--I'm the Don Juan of the Cyber World!
I'll POKE you until you agree to log into SKYPE and CHAT with me!
Even the Cyber Army can't stop me...
Don't stress over your BLOG or your HITS on IRANIAN.com, BALATARIN or BBC.
From the cute LINKS to the political ones
-- anything goes for me.
Nothing can stop me-
not JARAS,
I care only for Romance!
I wrote it in PINGILISH on BEHNEVIS:

Oh love, oh love! Your blue face is nowhere to be seen...
Oh love, oh love! Maybe they've HACKED you...
Your beloved face is nowhere to be found!

I adore your every PIXEL!
Don't you CLICK me away!
