Me and my Star Trek desk

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

pat tassoni with leonard nimoy aka spock star trek Last Halloween I brought my Star Trek desk down to the Matter! Gallery. I originally built it in my home office for a halloween reveal in 2002. It’s TOS style with three monitors and is basically Spock’s station or where Uhura worked. I of course brought some of my rayguns and dressed like the devil for fun. Read below.

Tassoni home office is a spaceship, whose full-size command center of the Starship Enterprise is built completely from repurposed materials

And I built a Captain Kirk Chair too! See pictures of my Captain Kirk Chair & Star Trek Enterprise Bridge/Desk

The Future Remembered NOW and IN-PERSON with my Mega-Needle Floor Lamp

Friday, September 21st, 2012

outside library1

On Wednesday evening I had the honor to meet the authors and PBS celebrities, Paula Becker and Alan J. Stein, in Olympia at a signing for their book, The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and Its Legacy about the history of the Fair and the Space Needle. PLUS I got to bring my Mega-Needle Floor Lamp to the event and use it as staging for their talk! Here we are pictured with it outside the Olympia Library — I’m in the middle. It was an honor and a privilege. They are very nice people and very knowledgeable about my favorite subject. I, of course, bought one of their books and you can learn more about it and even buy one online from The Future Remembered

The Mega-Needle was on loan for the event from the Matter Gallery in Olympia, where you can see it in person and/or buy it on-line at matter! 422 Washington St SE [between 4th & 5th Aves]


Floating airvent UFO lamp comes home via dumpster dive!

Sunday, May 6th, 2012


OK, you know I’ve been doing this thing way too long when I wind-up dumpster diving my own lamp! Seriously, this is one of the first ones I built 10-15 years ago, even before I was taking pictures of them. Last month, I step out to walk the dog and she’s afraid of something outside. Then I see this lamp sitting on my porch and I was, like, “that’s frickin’ cool…hey, I made that!” Apparently, a friend found it next to a dumpster when someone was moving and thought I’d like it — he didn’t know it was mine. AND another funny thing, I had walked past that dumpster a couple of times and saw some stuff that piqued my interest, but I never pursued it. So I guess I dumpstered it, once removed?!

It had obviously been well taken care of and the only problem was the top glass was cracked from being knocked over. It was interesting to work on it and see how I used to do things. And there was one moment of “oh, I should have done this instead,” in regards to bolting it all together. I also specifically remember trying to keep it lightweight so as not to complicate it’s floatiness. But I still used glass on the top. I’m a bit over the loathing of plastic now, so I used that material for it’s 2.0.

Welcome home old friend. Now that you’re all fixed-up, we’ll find you a new one. And since I’ve squirrelled away parts to make another, maybe we’ll get you a sister/companion too.
