There’s one of those and another based on the scoreboard at Fenway park in an office building in Boston.

I live in Burlington, VT near where Fisk lives. There are a few of these spheres around. My favorite is a steam engine that you can go inside of through a little door, and there are levers and cranks inside. My son used to play inside it when he was a toddler. It was a permanent installation at the railway station, before they revamped the station for a new Amtrak line.

If he's in VT, he must have done the structure featured on the cover of the Phish album Round Room.


woden_spoon t1_j0hb727 wrote

He did, in fact.

Gotta go to NJ for The Rhombus.


woden_spoon t1_j0hchqu wrote

Been there! But not because of Phish. I appreciate Phish, and have been to a couple of their festivals in the late ‘90s, but I’m not really a fan. I’ve met them all—I see a couple of them on a regular basis—but jam isn’t my jam.

Edit: Appropriate username, by the way.

Just watched that movie last week. It’s on Disney plus if anyone wants a trip.

This is so cool! Such a neat and fun idea. Bonus if you can climb into it and look out the windows.

It's a bit too small for a person to fit in. But the door handle works and the door hinges out. The interior is built out accurately with a mini seat and a whole dash etc.

I've had the chance to work with Lars twice on some stuff and he's a great guy, really goes the extra mile to build verisimilitude into his pieces.


joe28598 t1_j0gdlxn wrote

I have only heard the word verisimilitude once, and it was a Norm MacDonald joke, along with the word sesquipedality.


SensationalGlyph t1_j0gfz8y wrote

My other option was verité 🤷‍♂️


joe28598 t1_j0gjx0p wrote

And why not use layman terms when speaking to the general public? I assume you know that most people don't know what verisimilitude means.


SensationalGlyph t1_j0gz6j2 wrote

Fair enough I guess?

Google is always an option and the word seemed to fit.

I'll try again 'I appreciate the extra effort he puts in to make his works accurately reflect reality'


joe28598 t1_j0h3h9i wrote

I understand the want to use nice words, I love using them, but when in the company of people who appreciate it.

But language is use to communicate, if you use words unknown by most you may as well be speaking another language. Imo


SensationalGlyph t1_j0h6wdh wrote

Well you know what they say about opinions. Thanks for looking out for the little guys out there bud 😉

In norwegian our name for the VW beetle is 'boble', which means bubble. So this image made perfect sense to my norwegian speaking brain

Bro the new PokeBall looks insane


Mirabolis t1_j0gmyme wrote

A German engineered, reasonably priced, (apparently) fuel efficient PokeBall.

Only catches German Pokemon and hippies

I thought it was a diffusion/ai and was impressed by the reflection


trelam88 t1_j0g6lca wrote

That must be one of those new apricot balls in Pokemon. I see people comparing to the pokemon themselves but not to balls you catch them with. This is super cool! I wish I had something like this to decorate my garden, lol

Somewhere, off in the distance, the cross-collab team at VW and Rocket League felt a distinct disturbance in the force.

(This is awesome btw)
