Cardboard Clouds!

June 24th, 2009

I’ve seen clouds, real clouds, and web clouds, but I’ve never see cardboard clouds, created by Fantastic Norway,  which give a pixelated environment of brown clouds which looks pretty awesome in a huge warehouse space. If you have a huge space to do something, go make cardboard clouds! Reminds me a bit of the styrofoam robots!

Evolution of a Photographer

Evolution of a photographer! (source)
I’m still digging the “Evolution of a Career in Advertising” image, but my favorite still goes to Daniel Pinks “Evolution of Man” which evolves a business man into a creator, artist, designer perhaps =) .  Watch his great lecture on Poptech here.

The other two evolution pics after the jump along with Dans video.

Dushi: Super Sized Stuffed Animals by

June 18th, 2009


I think I’m going to require any cool space to have Super Sized Stuffed Animal Dolls by Florentijn Hofman from now on, which is on exhibit at Galerie West in The Hague (The Netherlands).

About the show:
Dushi: A solo show inspired by the toys and (cuddle)sculptures of children, where the change of scale completely changes their function and feeling.

Whenever I see a large room with space to fill, I’m going to think it needs a super sized stuffed animal to jump onto.

Susan Jane Belton: Coffee Cup Paintings

June 17th, 2009


I went to some open studios last week in Boston and met Susan Jane Belton who some years ago was bored, and started painting what happened to be in her studio space, which just so happen to be a pile of to go coffee cups sitting in a corner. Ever since she’s been collecting, bagging, and painting her daily cups of coffee… not all, but the ones the intrigue her. I wish I took a picture of her wall of plastic bags full of coffee cups. Nice simple collection!

Check out Susans work!


The Outlet Wall

June 16th, 2009


A convenient  wall of outlet plugs. I’d prefer an inductive wall with magnetic plugs! Anyhow, this beats finding the darn outlet each time hidden beind everything… though I’d fear a flare up.

“Instead of hiding your outlets behind furniture and worrying about the mess of wires tangled behind your entertainment center, consider making an entire wall that’s nothing but outlets. Then you can artfully plug in your appliances wherever the cords look pleasing to you.”

Stop-Motion Fun with Post It Notes!

Seth Godin: Guy #3

June 11th, 2009


Some wise words from our favorite marketing guru of all sorts Seth Godin about a rather amusing video:

“Paul just sent over this video of a dance tribe forming spontaneously at a music festival.

My favorite part happens just before the first minute mark. That’s when guy #3 joins the group. Before him, it was just a crazy dancing guy and then maybe one other crazy guy. But it’s guy #3 who made it a movement.

Initiators are rare indeed, but it’s scary to be the leader. Guy #3 is rare too, but it’s a lot less scary and just as important. Guy #49 is irrelevant. No bravery points for being part of the mob.

We need more guy #3s.”


Pygmy Jerboa

June 1st, 2009


Woa, Pygmy Jerboa’s are like little cartoon kangaroos witha face of a mouse. I can’t remember the last time I saw a little creature like this and said give me a thousand! How cute… Watch the video above!


Gloji Juice

May 31st, 2009

I’ve been a fan new juices for some time and usually post about them after trying them out. I came across this new juice called Gloji packaged in a light bulb like container mixed with apple juice or pomogranite, and I’m sure many other buzzy fruits like Acai soon. If anyone can find them, let me know how it tastes.


YawnLog

May 30th, 2009


YawnLog
(beta) simply lets you log your sleep time. Once you start using YawnLog you’ll understand your sleep time a bit more, how much sleep you get a day, week, month, or even how your sleeping patterns compare to friends, families, schools, cities, etc. Eventually these logs will be broadcast via twitter, facebook, etc, but what I’d really like is someone to figure out a smart way to auto log these sleeping patterns.. maybe connecting some sensor to your bed or pillow, alarm clock, lights, or something to automate this log.

I’ve only tested Yawnlog for a week, but it’s pretty obvious I don’t get much sleep on the weekedays, and hibernate on weekends. I do have this thought that students at art schools get much less sleep than other schools but who knows.
