Some nifty crafty boxes to make for some magical box tumbling…. I wonder if it would be an interesting shelf =)
Neat. Pivoting door. I somewhat want one, but also am not sure if I want one.
Designer Klemens Torggler has several more design on his site … check them out.
I was charmed yesterday over dinner outside when a piano painted over from local artist had a sign that said “Play me, I’m Yours”, and within minutes a variety of pianist, singers, and groups formed around making music to everyones ears. The Street Piano Project is pretty simple. Touring pianos placed in public spaces inviting anyone to play as long, or short, and whatever they would like. Several videos are recorded and put on their site. Pretty amazing. Boston has the 1,000th placed piano though pianos have been placed globally over the past few years. Check it out, and see if a piano is visiting your city soon.
One of my fav talks at the 99U (formerly 99% conference)
A very inspirational outgoing talk by Amanda Palmer at TED this year! Simply Awesome lady.
“Don’t make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.
Alt-rock icon Amanda Fucking Palmer believes we shouldn’t fight the fact that digital content is freely shareable — and suggests that artists can and should be directly supported by fans”
Wow, this is breathtaking and beautiful…drawing with molten lava on paper to burn to draw. My favorite part is when she whisks the molten lava forming slivers of torched thin glass on the paper which comes awfully close to her shoes which happens often. Seems like something from a martial arts movie for a weapon that you cant block…
