House NA

October 27th, 2011

I’m pretty sure that his is the weirdest house I’ve ever posted. It was designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects and is located in Tokyo. Just go ahead and watch the video … I just can’t get my head around its structure.

Iris van Herpen

Here’re 3 pieces from Iris van Herpen‘s Capriole collection. I guess they’re more wearable sculptures than fashion.

Venus de Milo

October 17th, 2011

It took me quite some time find any information about this image. I found it initially on Traditional Doom, but thank to Google Image Search I figured out that this Venus de Milo was photographed in Jean Paul Gaultier his studio. And now I’m at a dead end. Does anyone know if this is custom installation at Gaultiers studio or does anyone know the artist? Thanks for any hints. Thanks to commenters for pointing out that it’s an installation by Studio Makkink & Bey.
(BTW, seriously Tumblr, get your act together, you’re obfuscating the internet.)

Roman Opałka

September 15th, 2011

Roman Opałka was a French-born Polish painter who painted numbers. In 196 he began painting a process of counting – from one to infinity. Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows. As of July 2004, he had reached 5.5 million.

Undef Printer

August 29th, 2011

Here’s an other receipt printer project by undef: undef printer. This time you can decide what it should print, well actually you will have to write some simple code to do so. I’ve made variation of my TT pattern, which I did for the Pa++ern project 2 years ago. Anyway, you can try it out till October 8th, it is part of the “Tra me e ciò che è in me” exhibition in Grono, Switzerland.

Here’s my “code”, I guess there’s a smarter way to achieve my pattern.

Eternity

August 23rd, 2011

Eternity is a collaboration between Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming. They mounted 30 clocks on a large sheet of white acrylic and aligned the 36 hours and minutes hands is such a way that they spell ETERNITY. Every 12 hours you can read the word. I’ve posted similar projects before, I just really like them.
Make sure to check Alicia’s other project called Wonder.

One sentence contained within every HTML tag in random order

August 16th, 2011

Jason Kottke suggested today that some should make a random version of Evan Roth‘s classic “One sentence contained within every HTML tag in alphabetical order“. And that’s exactly what Marc Cohen did: One sentence contained within every HTML tag in random order. Reload the page a few times!

HEADQUARTERS ALTERNATE

August 3rd, 2011

A few months ago, Nicolas Sassoon made an architectural proposal for the online art collective Computers Club. I already liked it back then, but he produced and released an altered version, in just black and white, for ”STREET SHOW: The Things Between US”. Watch it in HD!
Soundtrack by Sara Ludy.
