Morphing obsolete technologies into modern art

Nick Gentry, a Central Saint Martin’s graduate and apparent stranger to canvas stretching, prefers to paint portraits on a canvas constructed with floppy disks. He strategically incorporates these obsolete tech properties into his subjects’ features creating a file cabinet effect. Gentry places an emphasis on recycling and reusing personal objects, acquiring dead technologies through a […]

Very rich people doing very bad things

The new video from UNKLE features Nick Cave, and it follows very rich people doing very bad things. Directed by Tom Haines, the “Money And Run” video is the lead single off UNKLE’s new EP, Only The Lonely. “It has a sort of Clockwork Orange-esque feeling about it,” UNKLE’s James Lavelle tells Mashable. “It follows […]

One of our most popular posts ever gets an iPad update

A couple years ago we came across an item called the Openaire, created by sibling duo Nick&Beau.

The avant garde magazine chooses a worthy subject

You know we’re fans of the avant garde Visionaire Magazine, who always push themselves to evolve the format to the next level. Most of their work is so future-forward that the term “magazine” is a disservice, like Issue 57 (consisting of an electric calender with 365 different curated images) that we covered a couple months […]

Comfort and motion in chair form

Designed by Nick Trincia — one-half of the duo behind the ever-popular Openaire laptop workstation — the Fluid Rocker chair is another clever creation. Constructed of a single piece of fiberglass, the inside of the chair is wrapped in felt — both for the comfort of sitting and also to provide softer, quieter rocking.
