Stick & Stones 


(click thumbnail for full panorama)

This wonderful 200 foot (63 meter) mixed-media mural reading “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will always save me” was recently installed in Adelaide, Australia by street artist ABOVE who fell while working on the installation, breaking his scapula in two places and suffering a concussion that required two hospital visits. Luckily he wasn’t working alone and a number of other talented artists helped to complete the project including illustrator and wood-carver Chris Edser, designer Tristan Kerr, public artist ANKLES, and Joshua Fanning. A big thanks to photographer Jonathan VDK for providing his images for the post. Definitely click the panorama thumbnail above to see the completed piece. (via unurth)

Bitmap Television Alphabet 

Bath-based designer Jack Archer made this fun alphabet using the lit screens of televisions.

A project inspired by the phrase “Turn off your TV” mentioned in a lecture by adventurer Alastair Humphreys. To illustrate this idea I built a shelving unit to house 15 small televisions; creating a dot-matrix grid where individual TV’s could be turned on or off, to produce different letterforms and numbers.

Gotta love that “T”. (via quipsologies)

Good Design Lasts 

I’m a sucker for huge signs made with pencils, and this work from Spagnola & Associates is no exception. Via their web site:

In 2011 Spagnola & Associates faced the challenge of designing their new office space. They created a 20′ wide dimensional wall to stimulate ideas and complete the office. 2,804 pencils were hammered into pre-drilled holes in the panels.
