I just love Nicolas Sassoon his animated gif style. The rotating 3D objects with their pattern shading … truly nice. His created “Island Study” for a benefit compilation for Japan.
You could say that the “Thermochromic Clock” by CW&T looks like any other 4-digit 7-segment timepiece, but this one just works quite different.
Each segment in the display is made with a length of nichrome wire and then covered by a thick layer of black thermochromic paint. Time is displayed by applying voltage to the nichrome wire. As the wire sustains an electric current, it heats up the surrounding thermochromic paint, causing it to become transparent.
I want one.

The biannual Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal collection is one of the few fashion things I’m always looking forward too. It’s always entertaining. So here are my 2 picks of the FW 2011/2012 collection.
A shearling lined parka assembled of 4 backpacks.
If you’re a runner, then you might recognize the pattern on this shirt … it’s the design of the X-Socks Run Speed One. And make sure to have a closer look at the “shoes” in this collection.

A few months ago, Felice Varini had an exhibition at the Gallery Römeraphotheke in Zürich, Switzerland. He created a new piece on-site called “Clin d’oeil à l’angle”. The graphic forms in his installations can only be seen from one exact viewpoint. If you don’t know what I mean: have a look here.
“Clin d’oeil à l’angle” is just a little different than his other pieces, this time you had to look at it in a mirror.
Tele-Present Water by David Bowen.
This installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy Station 46246 (49°59’7″ N 145°5’20″ W) on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure installed at The National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland. The result was a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant location.
