Photographs vividly depicting a violent end to many of your favorite Apple devices, a collaboration between Michael Tompert and photographer Paul Fairchild. As tragic as this is, the duo have made these gadgets appear almost as beautiful in death as in life. (via fubiz)

The calendars will also be available to collect at the Fedrigoni Xmas party on Tuesday 14th December 2011, in the basement bar of Clerkenwell House EC1N.

As a graphic designer who spends a fair amount of time in northern Michigan each fall, perched high in a tree freezing my ass off with a compound bow, I appreciate the convergence of my polar interests in these towels from Bless. (via better living)

Fiona Banner Installs Fighter Planes at Tate Britain

November 14, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Some great shots of Fiona Banner‘s latest installation at Tate Britain. Fiona has suspended an enormous Sea Harrier nose-down from the ceiling just inches off the floor and polished an upside-down Sepecat Jaguar so visitors can see their reflection in it.

For Banner these objects represent the ‘opposite of language’, used when communication fails. In bringing body and machine into close proximity she explores the tension between the intellectual perception of the fighter plane and physical experience of the object.
