robot art Konus 5003 376x400 Robot artI’m thinking Toy Story flashbacks (cyclo) and my 4-year-old son is clamouring behind me about Konus 5003, “What does he do? Is he a Transformer?” We’re looking at Andrea Petrachi’s (a.k.a Himatic) robotic sculptures, made from old toys and recycled items. Challenging both our overwhelming need to buy things and our penchant for confronting what is natural with the technological, his work is meant to provoke thought (and perhaps action?)

euphorie 585x327 Magicians of Light and Sound

When I saw this video still from Euphorie, an audio visual show performed in Paris by François Wunschel and Fernando Favier, I sort of expected two Jedi performers battling it out to music.  Actually, it’s much cooler than that. [ Continue Reading ]

deborah1 Deborah McLean...One Stylish Chef

We all know a few triple threats. Well meet a triple threat that’s a little bit different but just as cool.

Her name is Deborah McLean and not only does she cook, but she’s an interior designer (with her own company) that incorporates food into her lovely pieces of art. She’s a stylist known for turning boring rooms into something you’d only see inside of a magazine. Deborah began her career manufacturing homewards and fashion jewelry in the 80′s, and 20 years later she’s a stylist with her own company, and a chef that makes food taste delicious and look beautiful.

Mia Liu’s use of admission tickets from Guggenheim Museum to make artwork is innovative and earth-friendly. (Why not recycle to make art?) As I’m reviewing and reading about more pieces that are made from recycled items, I’m thinking there’s a major slant in the direction of eco-friendly art (and I like it-how cool is it to beautify the earth and please the eyes of so, so many people?)

Alejandra Quesada 4 423x400 Alejandras World of Pretty

Flipping through Alejandra Quesada’s interactive fashion book, I found sketches, prints, accessories, clothes and I found them to be flirty, feminine, and quirky (LOVE.) Her Spring/Summer 2010 looks are not only evocative of little girl skirts and rainbow tops but they are made for women’s bodies. Without looking like little girls, women can remember what it was like—happy summer days, twirly skirts, frills. [ Continue Reading ]

2010 gm en v concept 01 Shangai Goes Dragon Ball

I think I already mention something about the amazing of human accomplishments. If you’re reading this before you read my post on the Marion Hyper sub then one of two things happen. I’m obviously not very interesting and you didn’t even read about the Marion which means you’re probably not reading this, which also means that I have to keep my ego strong and call you an idiot. But don’t worry, I’m only half serious. OR! There was a publishing error. Either way. The new EN-V will revolutionize urban transport if it catches on. So for those of who get cream your pants over the environment I suggest you check it out after the jump.

kyriakos and kolette 1 600x448 535x400 Kyriakos and Kolette in Wonderland?

Fashion photographers Kyriakos and Kolette are based in London but very little else is said about them. I find their photographs of children to be especially haunting, with their knowing little eyes and their somewhat dirty ghostlike faces. [ Continue Reading ]
