@glyph This is an amazing project. The intent of letting imagination play its role sure works pretty well.

@glyph I love this. It reminds me of something that Richard Long or Bill Drummond would do.

@glyph A lovely project!

Imagination... guess it has kicked in already - imagine the web that's meant to live for 1300 years. I remember engineers facing unique problems designing bury sites for hazardous mater - the simple thing as icon meaning danger was already unique in that you're to convey a meaning with the image that's only hundred or thousand years old to a much longer extent of time.

p.s. adore the authors, but not the unauthorized copying statement
