The featured “Cropped Militia Jacket” and the “Loose Sweater”, made from walnut wood material on a wool base.  Once grown, the wood is deconstructed into pieces, and then attached to a textile base, creating a material that is half wood, half textile, and completely fragmentary.  The “Wooden Textiles” in this collection are made with Elisa Strozyk, uniquely for this collection.  The simplified look of polygonal geometry is meant to represent breaking the body down into a pixelated memory.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ First Trailer.


tmnt_movie_poster_1_by_samurai_gr-d45qe20

As time draws closer and closer for yet another classic movie to be re-invented on the big screen, fans of the original Ninja Turtles movies are being split into two groups.  Those who welcome a reinvention of a classic franchise, and those who dread its existence.  The first trailer for the new Turtles movie just dropped today, and as an avid fan since I was a young boy, I’m not sure which side I fall on.  Certain facts, for example, that Michael Bay is producing, and not even directing, the knowledge that it’s a Nickelodeon movie, and that the Turtles (in the first trailer) take off their masks are all things that may be off-puting.  But the true essence of brotherhood, vigilance, and the dynamics between the four main characters is all still there and in tact.  So take a look at the debut trailer, and comment about what you think.

A ‘Wine Glass’ For Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola is trying to convince consumers that a specially designed glass can also enhance the flavors of their fizzy drink. Developed in partnership with Riedel, the new glasses are inspired by the curves of the original Coca-Cola contoured bottle, and are said to capture “the distinct spices, aroma and taste of Coca-Cola.”

Artists Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin –creative director at Google’s creative lab — have collaborated to create ‘unnumbered sparks‘, a monumental interactive sculpture in the sky, billowing silently overhead visitors to downtown Vancouver, Canada. The ethereal net spanning 745 feet between buildings shimmers with a vibrantly colored glow, punctuating the urban landscape as it floats above ground. Dynamic digital characteristics embedded within the aerial mesh define an engaging relationship with the viewer. Visitors with smartphones and tablets are able to paint vivid beams of light across the sculpture at a massive scale: small movements made on phones become nearly hundred foot long trails on its surface. When you look at the sculpture, you’re looking at a web browser. The team explains ‘the lighting on the sculpture is actually a single fullscreen google chrome window over 10 million pixels in size.’ Choreographed by the public in real time through their mobile devices, the soaring form becomes a crowd-controlled visual on a massive canvas. ‘Unnumbered sparks’, which premiered at the TED conference’s 30th anniversary.

Asher Roth – Tangerine Girl


Asher-Roth

Asher Roth lets the production breathe on his four and a half minute long orange-themed track “Tangerine Girl,” produced by Blended Babies. The “I Love College” emcee, perhaps still best known for that campus anthem track, often creates smooth music that makes you want to sit on a beach somewhere and admire the scenery. The lush beat is covered with a masked sample of a woman’s vocals, evoking thoughts of lemon, tangerine and a cold beer on a hot summer’s day. Roth’s second studio LP, Retro Hash, is scheduled to be here midway through this year, although we have yet to hear much about the project. We do know that it will feature more production from Blended Babies, who have also produced for Kid Cudi and Chance the Rapper among others.

Altaeros Energies, the wind energy company formed out of MIT, announced that its Alaska demonstration project is set to break the world record for the highest wind turbine ever deployed. At a height 1,000 feet above ground, the BAT (buoyant airborne turbine) project, will be over 275 feet taller than the current record holder for the highest wind turbine, the vestas v164-8.0-mw. The BAT has been designed to generate consistent, low cost energy for the remote power and microgrid market, which is currently served by expensive diesel generators. The wind turbines will be used to power remote and island communities; agriculture, disaster relief organizations, and even military bases.

Delicious Maps of Countries Around The World Created From Native Foods


general 01 03 04 05

Artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves are authors of project called Food Maps. It’s a series of detailed maps of different countries and continents, created from the delicacies for which each place is known. The United States’ map is a glorious quilt of wheat and corn. India is the richly colored mosaic of spices. Maps of Australia and Japan feature love of their citizens to seafood. And so on. These maps show how food has traveled the globe – transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place. If you like such food creativity then you should also check delicious flags of different countries also made from food.
