Equilateral: An Audiovisual Essay in Triangles

And Don’t Forget to Change the World


Naresh Ramchandani explores how every piece of creative work can do good. 

Stuck to my psyche is a post-it note reminding me of the kind of work I always want to do. On the note are the words ‘… and don’t forget to change the world.’ It’s a pretty big phrase for a small imaginary post-it but it’s there to remind me that, every time I make a piece of creative work, I have the choice to make the world a little better or a little worse with that work, and the second option is not an option.

Cyber Monday

Pentagram’s Naresh Ramchandani explores what technology can’t give us this Cyber Monday. 

Cyber Monday is upon us. Completing four days of rampant consumerism that began with Black Friday, it is our annual commercial clickfest, and boy do we splurge. On this day last year, the UK spent £10,000 every second, mostly on technotronica. And today we are likely to beat our previous record as we salivate on this year’s screens at next year’s screens, frantically wondering what combination of phone, tablet, television, console and camera can complete us, can make us more on it and with it than we already are.
