Floating Animation Pen

February 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The floating animation pen is a collaboration between Japanese designers Satoshi Endo and Taku Sato who spent six months researching and developing the perfect combination of elements that would simulate a 6-frame slit animation within the tiny confines of a liquid filled pen. Mesmerizing. (via designboom)

Blinding Love Pendant Lights

February 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

These heart lamps are just awesome. And by awesome I mean, so amazing that if I saw them hanging in a storefront window I would break the glass with a nearby snow shovel (this is Chicago people), deftly pluck the lights from the ceiling and return to my underground lair of high-end lighting where I would hang them and cackle MIIINEE AT LAST!!! Ahem.

Designed by Thien Ta Trung at Periphere for Toronto’s Made at Home show, the lights were aptly inspired by the phrase “Home is where the heart is”. And they will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine. (via hello bauldoff, mocoloco)

Christopher Jobson

Graphic design by Belinda De Bruyn.

We had to make a Typo-poster for the ABC-House (Art Basics for Children) that would both speak to the children and their parents. The type is completely made out of boxes. It says: “Teaching is the art of assisting discovery”

Hideyuki Sawayanagi

February 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Japanese artist Hideyuki Sawayanagi creates incredible halftone photographs by drilling hundreds of small holes at variable widths into sheets of aluminum. Or at least that’s the only way I can imagine it. Click on the photos to see the detail, but also squint your eyes or back away from the monitor to see the photos emerge more vividly. A couple more images over at the ex-chamber museum.

Todd McLellan: Deconstructed

February 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

It seems like just last week I posted the deconstructed objects of Adam Vorhees, and now here’s the work of Todd McClellan who carefully dissects, organizes, and photographs the nostalgic objects of yesterday. Don’t miss the time-lapse video on his site. (via lustik, flavorwire)
