Bethan Laura Wood: Stain
Stain is a set of a teacups designed to improve through use. This project examines the assumption that use is damaging to a product, for example, scratches on an iPod).
The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. Over time they will build up an individual pattern dependent on the users personal way of drinking tea.

My Script Was Rejected and I’m Handling It Poorly
I pitched a story about three friends struggling to keep their miniature dinosaur business afloat. They sell them as pets in Detroit. It explores whether or not mixing business with friends is always, categorically a bad idea.
This kid on the basketball team pitched a story in which a man cannot pronounce the letter “R”. Like, instead of saying the word “bread” he says “bed”. Put aside the face that most of the “jokes” come at the expense of what is, essentially, a person’s speech impediment. THIS ISN’T A REAL THING. No person just totally omits a consonant sound from their speech because it’s difficult to say. For example, people who can’t pronounce “R” most often say it as a “W”.
In the end, the protagonist meets up with his girlfriend (named… get this.. Randy!) and because - I don’t know, she’s fucking magic - he now can totally say her name and all other Rs perfectly. Naturally, the guy decides to ask her to marry him.
And then it ends.
The story about the ordinary man who - for no reason - will not pronounce the letter “R” was UNANIMOUSLY selected.
So in 20 years when this asshole has 4 TV shows and I’m still waiting tables and saying things like, “I still think it’s gonna work out”, blame my classmates for the lack of quality comedy on television.
might just be Dan Harmon.
I can’t even put it into words, how sad I’ll be at the end. But right now I’m excited for the start.
