Danielle from Morris Walker called with the idea of zany economists scrawling all over 2 large, clear, mobile whiteboards whilst chaotically swinging them around in the large foyer at the ANU (Australian National University) Open Day this weekend. The idea had been sparked by Julius Sumner Miller, the mad and entertaining tv physicist of the 60s – 80s who coined the phrase “Why is it so?”. His popular tv prop, the blackboard, was used in his shows to demonstratively pose and answer everyday questions related to physics and chemistry. Danielle wanted to run with a modern version of this idea replacing a physicist with an economist. The basic brief was that it had to be mobile and clear. We looked at various fixings and decided on frog mounts, splayed as they are, reminded us of an equation, two points on a plane, that kind of idea. Something techie about them. We removed the top and bottom frame to continue with the idea of a very modern version of a whiteboard. We then bulked the perspex up to 10mm for robust function and form. Once assembled these mobile Wall Scrawls glide effortlessly around.Available Here
We have now crated 2 off: 2400mm x 1200mm mobile Wall Scrawls to Canberra, weighing a hefty 45 kgs each. Danielle was worried about the assembly so the guys have pre assembled the frame so that the only assembly required at the other end is to lift the perspex onto the frog mounts and screw into place.
