Local mad scientist Matt Bergstrom is constantly coming up with projects that straddle the border between whimsical interest in our city and extremely exact math. He’s created the Build Your Own Chicago Postcards, miniature cardboard scale model kits of Chicago landmarks. On posters, he’s measured and documented the city’s tallest buildings and its doors designed by Louis Sullivan. He’s also documented the city’s Route 66 landmarks, the motels on Lincoln Ave, and the area’s hot dog stands in 3D View-master reels.
NOW MATT NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Matt is set to release a new series of 3D Viewmaster reels documenting abandoned buildings in Chicago, and has set up a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to make it happen. Consider supporting this odd documentarian of our fair city.
