Appvanitas rock paper

On a recent visit to The Center for Photography in Woodstock, New York I had the pleasure of viewing the works of Justine Reyes. A series entitled Vanitas included photographs reflecting old Dutch still lifes in a similar vain but with a most sharp and contemporary air that was both refreshing and humorous.

Augmented Reality instruments

An amazing project taken on by two groups/individuals which I very much revere: Champagne Valentine & Aaron Meyers (responsible for YouCube)’ latest collaborative creation uses augmented reality (and a QR code which you download and print out) to create a virtual musical instrument. The future is so promising!

Baptiste Debombourg

baptiste debombourg manbaptiste debombourg staples This post goes out to all the 9-5ers stuck behind a desk, staring at the white office walls and pretending to be busy, whenever the boss walks by.  If there was no boss to check up on you, what would you do inside that office?  I see you looking at your nearest stapler.  Baptiste Debombourg has lived out your fantasy.  Baptiste created these large scale figures with over 35,000 staples.  Now someone needs to follow in Baptiste’s footsteps and make a paper clip tapestry.
