If you don’t have a green thumb, you can get one step closer with this custom moss ring by Warsaw-based Sylwia Calus Design. The rings are made from resin with actual moss embedded inside. (via svpply)

A billboard powered by oranges

April 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Another really fun ad, this time by DDB in Paris for Tropicana.

We created a billboard that harnesses the energy from oranges to illuminate a neon sign that reads “Natural Energy”. Through several thousand spikes of copper and zinc, a lot of wiring and 3 months of testing we managed to make a giant multi-cell battery powerful enough to light up a billboard. The custom build was produced by Unit9 in collaboration with director Johnny Hardstaff who created the accompanying 90 second film.

Advertisement or not, this looks like it was a really cool endeavor. Gooooo science! (via i believe in advertising)

The sound of finches and coat hangers

April 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

From Here to Ear (v. 13) is the thirteenth iteration of an installation by French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art. Primarily a sensory experience, the exhibit is meant to engage both visually and audibly as 40 finches hop delicately through a dense matrix created from hundreds of metal hangers causing vibrations and clinks that mix with the birds natural songs. Boursier-Mougenot made the rounds on several blogs last year for his audio work with finches and electric guitars. The exhibit is up through April 26. (via lost in e minor)

Corroded Rings by Yasushi Jona

March 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I am by no means a jewelry aficionado, though I did stay up late as a child watching reruns of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, and I once owned an honest-to-god metal detector that helped be locate enough rusty nails to build a house. I think that gives me enough cred to post these rings by Japanese designer Yasushi Jona. The rings are new, but have been corroded to look as if just scooped up from a shipwreck on the sea floor. One even contains an embedded shotgun shell. (via lost at e minor)

Myeombeom Kim

January 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Myeombeom Kim could be my new favorite artist. Blending nature with man-made objects Kim explores the philosophical idea of hylozoism, that all or some material things possess life, or that all life is inseparable from matter. The images above are just a small handful of pieces from a much larger body of work and I urge you to poke around her site. (via who killed bambi)
