Creative Morning Berlin #10: Stephen Coles: Chromeography project
by R27 CREATIVELAB on Tuesday, 12 June 2012
Stephen talks about his Chromeography project, an online archive of chrome lettering affixed to vintage automobiles and electric appliances. These unsung metal emblems and badges are usually overlooked, forgotten, damaged, lost to time or the dump. Chromeography.com answers (and poses) questions about how and why these little pieces of art have changed over the years. It also showcases the kind of thematic curation that has only become possible in a social/digital world.
