“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!
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. ”
Wow! Acrobat.com’s webtop page looks amazing, incorporating the sweet Buzzword (Word online), ConnectNow for sharing screens, PDF maker, file sharing, and file storage (5 gigs free). Every thing is going to the web! Whoohoooo! If only Photoshop Express (psd online) and Illustrator could be online now as well as any 3D program via Solidworks, catia, maya, 3d studio, blender, Rhino, Zform, Sketchup, etc..! Programs online rock! Did I say online yet!
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!
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!
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.

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.
Yet another way to navigate Flickr Photos through Tag Galaxy! Type in a wordÂ “tag”, surf the luminous galaxies, select another planet, then watch a matrix of tagged photos latch onto a planet to spin, flip, and zoom your fingers away. I’m not sure how practical this is, but none the less cool for a bit.
