All I can say is that I would be far more impressed if it was not almost completely designed by computers and built by CNC machines. Obviously, not to contradict your great essay above, but if Roxy Paine really cared about leeching life out of wood I would be far more impressed… that is IF this was all done by hand.. the drawings, the models… or ANY HUMAN EFFORT… then yes I agree he would be a parasite off the material. Instead he is a parasite off computer technology AND a complete parasite of the woodworking world and art world. I think his work… though impressive that he went into the half assed effort to create something… it is really crap!.. and I COMPLETELY agree that it is useless, neither says nor does nothing. It is a waste of good wood.

now this went around here on LJs a little while ago… and was totally carved by hand by Ryousuke Ohtake and all the joints work perfectly.. THIS is talent and skill that amazes me… not Roxy
