Inbook Charging Stations by somesiena

This is a very needed item in my house on the bedside table. Of course, I would prefer a white book.  I Love this.

In this day and age of never ending cords for our multiple gadgets and their myriad functions, it’s nice to see a charger camouflaged in an old book. Yes, for true (sentimental) bibliophiles, it hurts a tiny bit to know that a book has been put out to pasture, but it’s certainly a relief to know it’s not been chucked into some landfill, and it’s doing a different job altogether. The book acts as housing for a charger (it’s a solid unit), and means there’s no losing the cord behind your nightstand or desk.

Designed to be compatible with iPods and iPhones (iPod/nano/touch, iPhone 3G, 3GS & iPhone 4G), accommodates sync and charge functions via a USB cable, wall connector is not included.

Stop Motion Alphabet by somesiena

Cloud Cities / Hamburger Bahnhof by somesiena

The dreaminess of Tomás Saraceno's installations shatter traditional concepts relating to place, time, gravity and traditional ideas as to what constitutes architecture. His works are utopian and invite the viewer to play a part in their impact on a particular space, as they reach up to the sky and down to the ground. The artist creates gardens that hang in the air and allow visitors to float in space, fulfilling a dream shared by all humankind. Saraceno draws inspiration from soap bubbles and the incredible strength and flexibility of spider webs. Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin

Print time machine by somesiena

time print machine from paul F on Vimeo.

This machine functions in a similar way to a CNC machine, with an incorporated program to print any image using a time-based algorithm. According to the grey value of a pixel on an image, the felt pen remains in contact with the blotting paper for relative periods of time. Consequently the ink will bleed through the paper creating a variety of different sized stains, gradually building the image.It can takes around 34 hours to print one colour image. The slow printing process and the imperfections we obtain every time is what makes every print unique.

loving the pages of mette hornung rankin’s sketchbook. I'm seriously thinking about participating the 2012 sketchbook project. What a great idea.

to join the 2012 Sketchbook Project. Each participant receives a blank sketchbook that will be exhibited on the 2012 tour and cataloged permanently in the Brooklyn Art Library.

fear is a good reason to do this, right?
