Made of recyclable rubber these Haniboi cassette coin purses are off the hook ya’ll. Available in four colors the cassettes fasten shut with embedded magnets. If these don’t sell out in ten seconds I’ll eat my 8-track collection.
Seven Basic Exercises is a collection of incredible marionettes by Buenos Aires based artist and designer Juan Pablo Cambariere from a show at Turbo Gallery. It’s astounding how humanistic their physical actions are, considering they’re comprised mostly of plain interlinked blocks. His web site also has a fantastic gallery of additional puppet photos, and don’t miss his typeface. (via the automata / automation blog)
The Japan Series by German photographer Andreas Gefeller is surprisingly beautiful. Much like Yojiro Imasaka, Gefeller makes extraordinary pictures from things that pass unnoticed above us every day. (via triangulation)
While on a trip to Ireland last year, South Carolina-based artist Marco Suarez snapped some impressive photos and turned them into these circular prints. The tight cropping gives these images a stark focus that’s pretty unique. The first image, Lock Ness, is definitely my favorite. Available here. (via svpply)
GGrr kmvmdgfffff uy. Hold on, trying to pick my jaw up off the keyboard. Traumgedanken (Thoughts on Dreams) by German artist Maria Fischer is a 76-page collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientific texts on dream theories interlinked with thread.
To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.
The Pocket Card Light is the same size as a credit card and requires no batteries or wires. The interior bulb flips up and automatically illuminates any time you need a light. Only $7. (via incredible things)
