1980 - 2000
The Digital material series, 1980 – 2000, consists of 3398 digital files (2 GB) that relate to the engineering and invention of Hoberman’s patented transformable design, as well as the functions and activities of his company, Hoberman Associates, Inc.
Material includes 1871 AutoCAD Drawing files, 952 AutoLISP files, 589 Microsoft Word Document files, and a number of text files, image files and spreadsheet files.
The majority of the records date from the mid to late 1990’s.
AutoCAD drawings relate to the design of art installations, toy products, and architectural structures, as well as industrial patents and production drawings that detail the manufacturing and assembly of parts. The series also includes scripts created by Hoberman for customized command within the AutoCAD environment. Company records of Hoberman Associates include correspondence with customers and clients, project descriptions, exhibition proposals, product manufacturing and pricing details, patent documentation, intellectual property information, agreements and legal documents concerning counterfeit toy products.
The series is divided into two sub-series:
Sub-series 1: AutoCAD drawings and scripts
Sub-series 2: Hoberman Associates business records
Material within each sub-series has been arranged into file level groups according to project/design. Directories stored on separate pieces of physical storage media have been placed within a folder labelled by media type to retain provenance. In cases where a directory did not exist, individual files were placed directly into the folder. Files within directories have been kept in their original order.
