The Tiny House People
The ingenuity required to do more with less has always fascinated me, even as a child.
In simple terms, it’s more of a challenge than the alternative of having unlimited boundaries whatever they may be.
This would appear to be on the surface a contradiction to the majority of theoretical and philosophical subjects that also fascinate me as potential expansions of certain self imposed boundaries but that contradiction in of itself is a part of what makes me tick.
I have acquaintances, for example, that tinker with clockwork mechanisms to expand their capabilities whether they are used to create automaton devices or synchronizing triple springs to store more energy...that sort of thing.
This documentary you may or may not find fascinating as I did, but I am posting it for those who may find the ingenuity of young people who are also very thoughtful ..who have come up with what is called “the tiny house movement” an interesting subject .. as an alternative to our mindless corporate media fodder.
If you have an interest in the philosophy of architecture as an art form welded with craftsmanship, it might also be interesting..a change of pace that I am experimenting with to expand the scope of this blog.
For what it's worth.
