Have a Royal Enfield motorbike? This is how your tank got pinstriped.

Loving the cartoons and illustrations by Canadian based Michael DeForge. Be sure to head over to his site, King Trash to read the rest of the Queen strip above.  A small selection of zines are also available here. Looking forward to getting mine!


Priti Bikes

“Priti Bikes” is a portrait series by photographer José Castrellón taken in Panama, with each subject posing on his amazing modified bike.  Although individually unique, they all share similarities… my favorite being the air-horns connected to gas cylinders.  I would love to hear these in action!

Your Rainbow Panorama

Posted: June 7th, 2011 | Author: richard | Filed under: art, Uncategorized | No Comments »


Your Rainbow Panorama, by  Olafur Eliasson, is a permanent installation atop the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum in Aarhus, Denmark. The 150m panoramic walkway is 52m in diameter and is constructed from glass in “all the colours of the spectrum”

In the artists words;

“I think of Your rainbow panorama as a mediator that forges relations between these three: you, ARoS, and the city of Aarhus. It is a vehicle for looking anew, which frames views and frames you as you proceed through the seamless walkway of subtly transforming colour atmospheres. What you experience may be of both panoramic scope and introspective quality – you may see yourself seeing. Sometimes alone, mostly with others”

Sydneysiders may remember Olafur Eliasson’s exhibition “Take Your Time” from last years Sydney Festival.

Bolefloor

Posted: June 5th, 2011 | Author: richard | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Super impressed by this implementation of cutting edge technology in an age old process. Bolefloor scans each board then cuts it to optimise the usable timber surface, cutting around knots and sapwood  in an irregular, but natural fashion. A second optimised board is later cut with the corresponding profile to neatly nest together. The result is a beautiful and intriguing surface – just wish it was available in Australia!
