The Future Of Dress Shirts
The days of sweating on the commute to work are over, according to Ministry of Supply, a Boston-based company making hi-tech dress shirts that implement NASA-grade technology to adjust to your body temperature. Backers agree – the group reached their $30,000 Kickstarter target just five days after launching their campaign. Ministry of Supply’s Kickstarter has raised $74,000 so far, and the numbers keep climbing.
These paintbrush coat hooks are the latest work from creative powerhouse Dominic Wilcox who was inspired by discovering solidified paintbrushes he had forgotten to wash. The brushes were made for the Object Abuse exhibition at KK Outletin London.
When I am working, I need to music.
It helps me find my focus.
Currently, I have my home theater system plugged into my laptop and I am blasting - Para One | Sigmund - and #GTD.
My good deed for the day will be to share my favourite online music resources:
Sol Lewitt, Wall Drawing #1136, 2003
From the National Galleries of Scotland:LeWitt was seminal in establishing the notion of ‘Conceptual art’ during the 1960s. This work is one of a number of highly coloured wall pieces he made in the last years of his life. Described simply as ‘curved and straight coloured bands’, it includes seven vibrant colours to create an overwhelming chromatic environment that envelopes the viewer. Nine weaving bands interrupt vertical lines and add a sense of playfulness. Although this dynamism suggests an element of chance, LeWitt’s works are created according to precise instructions that regulate details such as the sequence of colours and width of bands.
Two photographers traveled through Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor, a rural area of 12,000 residents.
With them, they brought Impossible Project film and Polaroid cameras.
When the French photographers and adventurers Fabrice Nadjari and Cedric Houin arrived in the first village, they found that even photographs, which freeze time, worked differently.
The portraits they took with Polaroid cameras developed oddly, and degraded rapidly, because of the high altitude and harsh conditions. But this made them no less valuable to their subjects, many of whom had never seen a photograph. Some had never seen an outsider.
The local Afghans marveled at the fragile images and lined up to have their photos taken.
“There was something extremely precious in the way they were holding the image, in the way they wanted to get it as soon as it got out of the camera,” Mr. Nadjari said. “It was both the gift and the interaction.”
