Jan Vormann: Dispatchwork

June 7th, 2008
Jan Vormann dispatchwork

“As part of Bocchignano, Italy’s group project “20 Eventi,” Jan Vormann went around town and filled in all the cracks in the walls with painstakingly clicked-together patches made from Lego’s.”

Very cool! Gives off the vibe that entire city buildings are fabricated from Lego’s and their rustic outer layers of mud bricks are breaking off exposing the fun beneath! The hidden Lego lands discovered 😉 . I heart this!

Lots of pics after the jump>

Ads in Times Square

June 6th, 2008

A tour of Times Square from Keyframe on Vimeo.

hmmm… I want to make use of that empty space! The owner should convert it into his mansion or something! I hate wasted prime space!

“The One Times Square building is empty. Why? Because the owner can afford it by selling ad space alone. It costs $300,000/month to advertise on that structure — one of things you’ll learn in this behind-the-LED-screens look at Times Square. ”

2012: The Year The Internet Ends

June 2nd, 2008

Here’s a informational video about the always controversial Net Neutrality issue whom many of us learned about back in 2006 through Ask a Ninja here!

Pass it around, be in the know, and fight off this corrupt political crap… make information free to enable creativity and progression. Reminds me of Larry Lessig‘s Great TED lecture on “Creativity being strangled the by law.”

Yves Behar of Fuseproject at TED2008. I love his quote about advertising. “Advertising is the price companies pay for being un-original”.

Nick Demarco: Reuse, Garbage Chair

May 29th, 2008
Nick Demarco XS garbage chair

Call it what you want, but I think this is a great idea by student Nick Demarco! Buy this plastic bag/mesh shaped chair, stuff it with dry items you’d be throwing away anyways or what you have too much of, and you have a comfy chair. Take those old shirts, magazines, bottles, stuffed bears, newspapers, etc.

This is a great “Reuse” project. I’ve got a huge pile of old shirts and magazines that would work great for making a snazzy couch! Reminds me a bit of the very expensive yet cool Campana teddy chairs!

Tast.es: Disposable Elements for Catering

Tast.es: Disposable Elements For Catering
Wow! I love it when the ordinary becomes extraordinary. In this instance Tast.es creates “Disposable elements for catering”! I’m not sure the cost on these jewels but every time I pass by cheap ugly paper/plastic plates in the grocery store, I’m going to venture my eyes around for a set of these, especially the sweet soup cups! Plastic at it’s best! Damn this is hot!

Give your Employees Tools

May 27th, 2008
bad experience tools

This image reminded me of the many instances in which companies want to save a bit of cash for needed tools. Don’t be cheap… buy the tools you need to be productive or bad things may become of your project or in this instance, a person.

Erik Nordenankar: Biggest Drawing in the World

May 27th, 2008
Erik Nordenankar biggest drawing in the world dhl

Artist Erik Nordenankar has created the “Biggest Drawing in the World” according to his webpage.

In short, he had a grand vision to draw a huge self-portrait. He sent away a briefcase containing a GPS device around the world through DHL which plotted it’s journey in 55 days. The end result, a pretty sweet self-portrait. The GPS container became his pen and the world became his canvas.

However true or fictional this may be, it’s a pretty cool idea. He has a good documentation of it online, and a youtube videos here.
