Dreaming of (i)Pad 3 

NSCAD's a.corn inc. introduces a line of conceptual craft.

Get some face time with (i)Pad 3.
  • Get some face time with (i)Pad 3.

For 20 years Andrew Maize had trouble sleeping on his back, that is until he received a thoughtful homemade gift from his 11-year-old cousin. That half-pound lavender eye compress, also served as inspiration for the (i)Pad 3, which Maize calls "technology so unadvanced, you'll forget it's even there." a.corn inc., a NSCAD-based collective founded by Maize with locally-made technologies and humanitarian and environmental ethics in mind, has been busy crafting two models: the L-GF+4z (filled with golden flax seeds and lavender) and the RPC-BFS (with brown flax seeds and rose petals). Also available are a variety of shades of protective sleep covers as well as over 140,000 Napps. As a commentary on the unethical working conditions in many Apple factories, Maize says at a.corn inc. there's no hierarchy and all sales will be split evenly. This is craft that's conceptual, conscious and truly functional.
