Johnston Foster @ POVevoloving Gallery This Saturday

 

Johnston Foster will be showing a variety of recent works at POVevolving in Chinatown tomorrow including an 8ft mixed media sculptural installation featuring an intricately crafted skeleton ( made from plastic lawn chairs ) riding a small pony that has been assembled from pieces of old tables and misc scraps of wood. The entirety of the work is surrounded by a swarm of wasps, each and every one, hand crafted from bits of recycled material. In addition to the epic centerpiece, the artist will be showing 15 wall mounted ‘masks’ – each one, incredibly expressive and created from random bits of detritus, including tires, hair brushes, shoes, car parts and a wide range of other reclaimed materials. More info about the show at Povevoling.com.

Documentary Watch: John Coffer

John abandoned the hustle and bustle of the city over 20 years ago to live a simpler life where ones life isn’t ruled by a punch clock and where the only one that you have to answer too is the rooster crowing at the first site of sunrise. Watch the full video after the jump.

Craig Damrauer’s New Math

Craig Damrauer’s New Math series quantifies the world in simple  and funny mathematical equations that we can all understand and relate to. If they only taught math like this when I was in high school I would have gotten straight A’s instead of riding the C- mathematical highway.

Design Month: Flux Chair

 

This chair literally just blew my mind. Excuse me while the popping sounds subside…. It folds flat and according to this description, “Flux Chairs can be stacked 21 chairs high in just one foot of space. For those with space limitations, the Flux Wall Strap makes it easy to store folded chairs against the wall and can hold up to six Flux Chairs at a time.” If you live in a small space, any space really, and love to entertain these chairs seem beyond ideal. They’re amazing!

Design Month: Speak-er


Unless you’re a millionaire finding good looking speakers that blend in with your decor can be a challenge. Luckily, we have Speak-er speakers! According to guys over at engadget the sound is actually good too, though it’s missing a subwoofer and rich bass. For $100/ pair they seem like a deal.
