A giant mousetrap project by ABCP architecture (the architecture firm where I work) for the 2013 Park(ing) day in Quebec city. We had a lot of fun to build this human scale trap ! Thanks to everyone who participated.

Between Dog and Wolf by Audrey Hays

Stunning pictures. I had to share it here.

Aubrey Hays created the series ‘Between Dog and Wolf’ where she explores our lives taking place in between domesticity and wilderness. Her pictures are shot at sunrise or sunset, when the light wavers in such that a dog on the horizon could perhaps be the lurking shadow of a wolf. Aubrey’s body fits oddly into the surrounding, sometimes she even appears almost invisible, blending with the nature around her. She’s grappling with the uncomfortable, the disquiet, the unknown, she points on our overwhelming need to overcome isolation within these rural spaces. ‘Through the perseverance of remaining within the landscape, sturdiness takes shape as the wolf appears. It is my ever-challenging paradox of intimacy and distance, which draws me to the environment, yet stands in the way of my ever fully anchoring to a place.’

Fornasetti wallpaper for Cole & Son

Do you know who is Piero Fornasetti ? If not, take a look here, this guy was a dreaming genius and draw such beautiful things. I love his iconography a lot.

Cole & Son, with the help of Barbara, Fornasetti’s daughter, start to produce splendid wallpapers (for your walls, not your screen…) from his drawings, including this green-leaves-and-gold-keys one that is obsessing me !

Clouds, umbrellas, flying machines and suits of armour are among the motifs in this collection by Italian design house Fornasetti for English wallpaper brand Cole & Son. […]

The motifs are taken from the Fornasetti archive of drawings created by Barnaba’s father, Piero Fornasetti: “I chose things and I mixed them together, and I changed the colour, I changed the dimensions.”

A Millions Times by Humans since 1982

A Million Times” is a new project by humans since 1982. It’s similar to their The Clock Clock project, this time they’ve used 288 clocks which can be controlled by an iPad. We’ve seen stuff like this before, but it’s still mesmerizing.

Voltage by Iris Van Herpen

Voltage is the title of Iris van Herpen‘s latest couture collection. 2 outfits are actually 3D printed flexible outfits. The first one is a cape and skirt, which is a collaboration with Neri Oxman from MIT’s Media Lab. The second one is a black dress, a collaboration with the architect Julia Koerner. Both use a different 3D printing technique to achieve these result. The rest of the collection is also worth a look, it’s not like anything else out there.
