You’ll find the author's blog at BuckyIdeas.com. Please visit there to read about Buckminster Fuller's IDEAS for today and for news about upcoming events and books.FORM FOLLOWS IDEA examines the work and ideas of influential designers Ralph Ball and Maxine Naylor. Their reflections and propositions provide a refreshing and provocative approach to design, touching on issues such as craftsmanship, modernism, and the role of nature and commercialism in design. Ball and Naylor's work explores ideas of space beyond the physical object. Their concern with cultural and social values is manifest in the form and (dis)function of their designs and appropriations of everyday objects, such as chairs, lights and shelving. FORM FOLLOWS IDEA features their approach to these objects through cultural, ecological and visual narratives. As such, their book provides a playful yet critical re-evaluation of familiar forms and typologies.

Humans are falsely conditioned by the notion of scarcity promoted by Charles Darwin and Thomas Malthus. The idea of survival of the fittest sets up an us-versus-them mentality. If we believe there is not enough for all, overconsumption and greed are natural results. Only by embracing abundance and setting out to prove there is enough for all can we achieve Bucky’s overriding objective, “To make the world work for one hundred percent of all humanity in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological damage or harm to any individual.” In other words, whether we think we can or think we can’t, we are right.

Through [ART] ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE [NOW] • I have recently become a
Synergy Member of the Buckminster Fuller Institute and been invited to get
involved with the Trimtab Space Camp initiative • so having watched the
Experiencial Space Research Lab piece and listened to David McConville's Gaian
Systems video and the expanding worlds of Margullis and Lovelock, I would
like to suggest from my own humble standpoint that THE VERY BEST VIDEO for
all participants to watch urgently, if in[DEED] they haven't already done so, IS the
film which I have described as "THE MOST EXPENSIVE EVER" because of the costs
involved over decades to develop all of the equipment necessary and to launch it
into space to enable the production of same • namely Earth From Space.
