Everything is an Experiment. - Tibor Kalman
In the summer of Y2K, Maira Kalman teamed up with Creative Time and the New Museum
TIBOR IN ORBIT, a public art project that posthumously honored designer Tibor Kalman. Tibor Kalman had an unrealized
dream to create an
un-advertising campaign to question social and economic equality.
From 5/1 to 6/15/Y2K, Tiborisms were featured on 1 million Parmalat/Sunnydale non-fat milk cartons in supermarkets
in the New York metropolitan area and every hour at 59 minutes past the hour on the NBC Astrovision video billboard
in Times Square.
Inspired by Tibor and Maira Kalman, undesign created a little experiment* called UNDESIGN IN ORBIT. We hacked some PERL and called in the resources of
some of our friends to give you the ability to create your own UNAD. Pick a picture, utter some
appropriate un-slogan, and your un-banner will be created.
(And at any time during this process, if you can't think of something witty, profound or colorful to say,
look to Tibor for inspiration.)
&*@~!!!!   Our little experiment is broken at the moment. :-(
