Listening to: The get up kids

On a massive research tip today, all about Buckminster Fuller,  for a project that will hopefully become apparent late next week. I stumbled upon the the artist community 'drop city' based in colarado from 1965 to the early '70's.
The Droppers’ vision of life-as-art was evidenced in their iconographic dwellings, which were based on geodesic domes and the crystalline designs of Steve Baer, a pioneer in fractal geometric designs and solar energy. The Droppers were opposed to work-for-pay and used salvaged materials, including culled lumber and chopped-out car tops.  In 1966, Buckminster Fuller honored Drop City with his Dymaxion Award for“poetically economic structural accomplishments."

Read more about it here. Or better, watch this trailer and give these people more money to make the documentary about the place.
