If I could have an extra body part it would be a tail. Last night I got the chance to make that wish a partial reality — I made a dinosaur wearable. The CCA MFA in Design Program is hosting Nightlife on Thursday, November 14 at the California Academy of Sciences and along with my strap-on stegosaurus, guests will have the opportunity to try out other great wearables and interact with tons of metamorphosis-inspired installations and exhibitions.
The phase "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is a pangram (a phrase that uses all of the letters of the alphabet). It's especially used when demonstrating a typeface because it is short and coherent. Unfortunately, I've always taken issue with this phrase; I've never met a dog (lazy or otherwise) that would allow a fox to jump over it. I like to think that it seems about as unrealistic as saying, "The quick brown dog jumps over the lazy dinosaur," but then it wouldn't be a pangram.
But who needs an "f" and "x" anyway?
