It’s mainly made up of boards/drives from old Intergraph 6000 series machines built in the late 80s early 90s. They had nice big boards. It was a good way to keep around my first real computer after I could no longer find parts to keep it working, an Intergraph 6880 with Edge II graphics. I learned computer modelling, rendering and animation on it and think of it as a mentor. There are also old 2800 baud modem parts and other random parts collected over the years.

The system produces a decent amount of oxygen, especially after dark and does that at the place where it’s most needed – the center-section of the house.

The Nymphenburg chrysanthemum is an incredibly intricate example of porcelain art. The flowers are made from more than 300 petals modeled by hand in wafer-thin porcelain. The chrysanthemum flower has a long tradition at Nymphenburg and some archive samples date back to the 18th century. Those were much smaller than the almost originally sized flowers created in 2009. The limited edition of 25 flowers encased in ornamental wooden boxes are created to be close to nature by porcelain masters who have undergone special training and have steady hands and lots of patience.
