The guys in OKGo are super creative and you never know what you’ll see next in their music videos. I applaud the team that built these contraptions for the “This too Shall Pass” music video. They are resourceful, witty and perfectionists when it comes to timing and measurement.
It’s just a good time. Check out the new video here >
Out of lighting ideas? Check out the Less Lamp by Jordi Canudas. The power is now in our hands! The Less Lamp is a sealed lampshade that needs to be broken in order to release the light inside. Pick axe included. These babies run at a steep $875 dollars but are a great addition to any space.
OMG Have you seen this? Neutra Face: An Ode on a Typeface (A Bearded Poker Face Parody.) Like any appropriate design parody they mention Helvetica, sans-serif, leading and “bold-italic.” I love that geeks can go from conception to creation and this one will be stuck in my head all day. Lady GaGa would be proud.
Even the Olympics is running a design contest! You can design Lindsey Vonn’s Olympic Ski helmet for a chance to win big prizes. They include a template, design guideline video and complete contest details. I even saw this advertised on tv and on Vanity Fair.

See the Contest.
I was lucky enough to visit the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art featured at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in Brisbane, Australia. The new exhibition at GOMA is executed beautifully. The shows runs from December 5, 2009 to April 5th, 2010 located on the South Bank of the Brisbane River. Admission: FREE
Here are a few of my favorite highlights: taxidermy reindeer’s covered in crystal balls, wax-made asian men, rooms full of string and ominous film installations with intriguing sound spacing.
