Untitled Penny Crusher Project
w/ Stuart O. Anderson
begun Summer 2008, re-booted winter 2014
I am now in the initial process of realizing a souvenir penny-crushing machine, along with long-time collaborator Stuart Anderson. In it's current incarnation, the machine would incorporate an updated, slimmed-down design based on that of former Westinghouse engineer Bill Ball, constructed by myself and Stuart. In re-thinking what has been a long-term idea for us with many fits and starts, we are currently not settled on a theme for the penny designs.
I collect these pennies as well, mostly when traveling and through kind friends who press them for me during their own travels. I keep a running list of the pennies I have thus far, although I've yet to get around to scanning the pennies themselves.
