Steven Harrington’s original You & I sculpture is back, now in a brand-new, shiny black color way. Fun.
Harrington’s first three-dimensional exploration represents the epitome of his work’s goal—to create a dialogue between artist and viewer.
We first covered Steve Harrington back in 2005 and it’s been grew to watch him grow and evolve as an artist.
I love this. This clever, battery-powered robot tuner can tune all six strings in just seconds, and delivers over 75 tunings per charge. To do so, it tunes your physical strings — as opposed to digitally, which can result in degraded tone — and gives you access to 12 common alternative tunings, including six that you can program yourself.

Awesome. Yago Partal shot pictures of animals dressed up.
Check them out and try not to smile. Starting at $6.00 a print.
Loving the look of the Landmarks & Lions cases for iPhone, iPad, etc.
Each calf skin leather piece is hand cut and sewn together with contrast stitching and individually hand painted. The iPad cases are made-to-order and are individually handmade.
Wow. Awesome. Go see this in NYC.
Plant-in City is a collaboration between architects, designers, and technologists who are building new ways of interacting with nature. Our 21st century sculptural terrariums combine modular architecture, basic laws of physics, embedded technologies, and mobile computing to construct a “Plant City” where the aesthetic meets the pragmatic.
Each frame is made with cedar wood and copper piping, with digital sensors and integrated lighting controlled by smartphone app. The plants live in an artful structure that’s nearly self-sustaining. After all, plants improve our quality of life and nurture us on an everyday basis; we think it’s only fair to nurture them in return.
A yearly activity I love to do to wrap up one year and head into the next.

Designer Lars Amhoff of The Substain sent this awesome piece over.
The tabletop is made from a massive piece of acorn wood, crafted out of a full plank. The wood is finished smoothly and coated with a clear protective coating, to protect the wood and art against fluids and scratches. Topped off by a hand-screen-printed piece of art, done by McBess. Held is the table by four heavy duty legs, hand bent and welded from rough steel. Finished with a clear coating to prevent rust. The legs are bolted into the wood by 2 thick 8mm screws. They can be taken on and off for transport and shipping. The size of the table is 90x55x45cm, which is the size of a coffeetable. “
