The Challenge Card was "Back to the drawing board" - Design a tool that can be used for drawing or sketching.

What gave me the idea of the Pentographix was reading about Jeff Koons. His pop culture art and his affection for copies and rescaling (mainly from small 2 large) incooperated with the Parameter Card "Small" (and also with is opossite "large").

After some research and prototyping with popsicle sticks and map pins (see pic), i've design the Pentographix.

The Pentographix is a Whiteboard Rescaling tool that helps with reproducing sketches in a bigger scale. Theoretically it can rescale infinitely, but phisically it's constrained to the arm's span of the person who uses it. It holds an EXPO whiteboard marker in each upper hole, and each marker is scaled two times the former.
The Pentographix can be mounted on a wall close to the Whiteboard or to the whiteboard it self with some tic-tac.

The Loft feature was implemented to the mouter (i've rolled only one!).

  • I could'nt find a connection with the "Teenager" Parameter Card so instead of making something up, i preffered to neglet it for the sake of the general idea.

Materials and methods

1. The Whiteboard Marker holder needs to be printed with a flexible material.
2. The basic setting can rescale by 4, but it's modular so you can scale big as half of the board, principally.
