Behold the world’s first minimalist steampunk table. The Lois is a one-of-a-kind table designed by Charles Waugh out of Boring, Oregon where apparently he makes stuff that’s anything but boring.

Arrivals/Departures by Michael Fernandes Asks People about Themselves

October 20, 2010

Christopher Jobson

An installation by Michael Fernandes at Nuit Blanche in Toronto, an all-night contemporary art event held earlier this month.

What are you up to? Who are you? What do you miss? What do you want? […] A few of the possible set of questions that prompters will ask you. Then, your responses are transcribed onto large blackboards. The aim of this participatory project is to solicit and register a broad sense of ‘travel’. With continuous prying, the prompters encourage responses that are based on life experience, interpersonal relationships as well as the specifics of being ‘here’ and ‘there’.

So it’s gigantor chalk Twitter! First photo by Sam Javanrouh. (via daily dose)

Jill Sylvia spends a lot of time with a knife

I think there’s a chad joke in here somewhere, but I’m too tired to find it. Jill Sylvia takes old ledger books and meticulously eviscerates them square by square, page by page, until she’s left with a delicate ledger skeleton. Papercraft meets process art. (via triangulation)
