Video Watch: Copenhagen’s Indians, I Am Haunted

Søren Løkke Juul aka Indians released his debut album, Somewhere Else on 4AD this past January and I was lucky enough to catch him perform earlier this month at New York’s Mercury Lounge.

With the help of two additional musicians, Heather Woods Broderick and Laurel Simmons, the songs sounded extra lush. The added harmonies and a slowly grooving crowd were just what I needed to get lost in his hypnotic voice and electronic soundscapes. Check out the video for I Am Haunted and see why the Village Voice calls him, “Denmark’s Bon Iver“.

Harvey Moon’s Robot Draws His Art For Him

Harvey Moon drawing6 Harvey Moon drawing3

Artist Harvey Moon admits that he has always had a difficult time drawing.  Naturally, then, he built a robot to do it.  Moon’s machines use the same pens that you’ll find on your desk right now.  However the pens are moved around, picked up, and put down on a sheet of paper by motors running on a program.  His first drawing machine works vertically with only two simple motors.  The amount of detail put to paper by the machine, though, is astounding.  Check out the video to see Moon give a more detailed explanation of the way the drawing machine works.

Anthony Record’s work with acrylic, burlap, acrylic and other materials is really taking me to that happy primary place. Looks like glitter is also involved.

Street artist Levalet more than only uses the public space as a canvas.  The artist’s wheat paste images interacts with the city itself.  His life size subjects lean, sit, and lie down on the surfaces they are pasted on.  He even incorporates everyday objects such as books and umbrellas to further bring his work to life.  You can find his work on walls, on the street and in galleries, scattered throughout Paris, France.  [via]

Burning Buns: A Lampshade, Made Entirely Out Of Bread

When Japanese artist Yukiko Morita began working in a bakery as a teenager, she marveled at how cute baked bread was. She probably did not realize at the time that, years later, she would craft a way to make bread into a usable home decorative object.

Introducing her one-of-a-kind Pampshades at Tokyo Designers Week, Morita most certainly has a monopoly on the most glutinous lighting system. Although she declined to name a few secret ingredients, she listed the rest as: “Bread flour, salt, yeast, LED, batteries.” After the bread is baked, she covers it in resin, solidifying the form so it will not decompose.

“As the story goes, Morita worked in a bakery in her native Kyoto eight years ago, subsquently graduating from the Kyoto University of Arts in 2008 and reportedly launching Pampshades as early as 2010 (the name is a portmanteau of ‘pan’—French for bread, derived from the Latinpanem—and lampshade). The brief timeline on her website further notes that the first prototype dates back to 2007 and that she relocated to Kobe as of this year.” (Excerpt from Source and Source)
