DIY Pen Extension Challenge: Name-Writing Stretch

Invented for the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Village Fete.

Design and construct a pen extension with which to write your given name or initials (if your name is longer than ten letters) while standing as far away from a vertical sheet of A1 paper as possible. You will be measured from any point on the paper to the closest point on the ground that you touch while drawing.

Good luck constructing your distance-defying lettering lance!

Made in collaboration with my dear friend who I miss very much Louis Bonnet.
