What I Did Last Summer -> My Daily Photos

I know, it’s only August 5th. I’m not trying to rush us through the season, I haven’t posted in a long while and I thought it would be nice to celebrate the magnificent weather we’ve been having up here in the PAC NW. After all, it’s what has been keeping me from posting. […]

Nick Frank -> Hong Kong Cityscapes

Photographer Nick Frank has a special technique and style that I really admire. His Hong Kong cityscapes are a fascinating blend of urban mass and natural landscape that somehow meld calmly together. Many more amazing images beyond the link.

Fesson Ludovic -> Natural Sculpture

In a world where the temptation to overbuild, overcomplicate, and overthink, comes all too easy, I find Jargeau, France based artist, Fesson Ludovic’s land art to be refreshing. The simple surprise that comes from bringing basic order to organic elements in their own natural environment really delivers, both visually and conceptually. Many more examples of […]

La Push -> Road Trip

Last week, my wife, some dear old friends, and I were fortunate enough to explore La Push, and the Hoh Rainforest, both located on the Olympic Peninsula. In short, we had an amazing time and the Olympic Peninsula is certainly a beautiful place to get lost. I posted a few of my mobile pics on […]

This man has a wealth of bicycle knowledge stored in his head, and a collection to match. I admire his selfless mission and passion to preserve his amazing bicycle collection for future generations to enjoy. What an interesting person. Very much worth the view for bicycle lovers.

Libero Rutilo -> Rotary Hydroponic System

This is a terrific looking rotary hydroponic system designed by industrial designer Libero Rutilo. The origin of the rotary design stems from NASA, in an effort to design sustainable garden systems that would provide fresh food for extended tours in space. This design looks like it would fit right into our earthly needs. More info, […]

from physical to digital -> Fujitsu Laboratories

This is an interesting touch-like interface that seems to bridge the gap between the physical content world (books, magazines, notes…) and the digital world. The highly accurate fingertip mapping allows the user to conduct some common gestural actions in the real world, transferring data to the digital world.

“We think paper and many other objects could […]

collage artist -> Leigh Smith

Otherworldly. Alien. I can think of a few ways to describe the surreal collages coming from artist Leigh Smith. Each collage is thoughtfully handmade, and they all seem to have a retro sci-fi aesthetic to them. Much more work to be seen on his portfolio site.

Oliver Latta -> Symmetrees

Symmetrees from Oliver Latta on Vimeo.

There’s great power in symmetry, I too like to experiment with it artistically at times. Symmetry, is sometimes described as “a vague sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance”. Symmetry and balance is something that we strive for in almost every aspect of our lives. Our diet, our work, […]
