Portland, Maine Artists KATE CLEAVES and MATT W. MOORE have come together to create CONVERGENCE – an ultimate collaboration series (Now showing at CORDUROY GALLERY). The five month endeavor to create a completely blended, completely unique series of paintings has lead both Moore and Cleaves down a path neither of them has been down before - resulting in work unlike anything either of them has ever produced. When viewed separately, both artists seem to go about painting in a very different manner: Moore often works with non-objective shapes and geometry, with hard lines and strong brushstrokes, and the occasional area of representation – Cleaves generally works with a narrative and imagery inspired by nature, blended colors, and soft brushstrokes. Both artists share a passion for pattern, sacred geometry and eye-popping color – making the perfect common ground to blend their different techniques together.The end result was the perfect balance with an au...

Twenty-first-century robotics has a way to go before it catches up with 20th-century science fiction. But a German technology company has come up with a robotic penguin that Isaac Asimov himself would have admired.Festo’s penguins — “autonomous underwater vehicles” — look, act, and move like real penguins. (They also have dolphinlike sonar capabilities and the ability to swim backward.) And if these birds fail to impress, check out Festo’s new line of bionic air penguins: flying robots that move like sea creatures and look like shiny dirigibles.

Kehinde Wiley

Kehinde Wiley ?s works reference specific paintings by Titian and Tiepolo, but he incorporates a range of art historical and vernacular styles in his paintings, from the French Rococo to the contemporary urban street. Wiley collapses history and style into a uniquely contemporary vision. He describes his approach as ?interrogating the notion of the master painter, at once critical and complicit.? He makes figurative paintings that ?quote historical sources and position young black men within that field of ?power.?? His ?slightly heroic? figures, slightly larger than life size, are depicted in poses of power and spiritual awakening. He deliberately mixes images of power and spirituality, using them as a filter in the portrayal of masculinity. Kehinde Wiley?s exhibition Infinite Mobility recently appeared at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. Down, an exhibition of new paintings by Kehinde Wiley, opens at Deitch Projects on November 1, 2008. This exhibition consists of four new large-sca...

On my other blog this would be "music I'd like to se in a commercial" here it's just random shit I like. I'm endlessly enamored with the creative process. I'm often more intrigued with the process than the product. There's something so honest about creating, the first kernel of an idea, moving an idea into a raw concept, the unrefined blemishes, the mistakes that work & the godlike nature of creating. It's like literally moving the spirit into the material. For me the most fun part of the dance is learning to do it.Emiliana Torrini - Big Jumps

Tine Roeder and David Krings did a collaboration together called ?Structures /Facades?. The inspiration for this sideboard (it is just a prototype for now) was the architectural history of East- and West-Berlin, rich in visions and utopias.

The venerable Italian brand Brionvega thinks the 60s and 70s are worth bringing back, or that at least some of the design sensibilities of the era warrant new life. The classic, groundbreaking Radiofonografio, divined in 1965 by two of the three Castiglioni brothers, Pier Giacomo and Achille, is making a new entrance as RR226. In 1965, the ?musical component robot? was a home electronic marvel that in one sleekly designed device included a radio, amplifiers and a record player (for both 45s and 33s). The modernized model has also a CD and DVD players but otherwise it is as close as possible to the original. The amplifiers are moveable which makes it possible to create different configurations both for visual and listening pleasure. Showcased at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in April, RR226 may be a while coming to a store near you. But like so many of the Castiglioni brothers? objects, still produced and/or displayed by Zanotta, Flos, Artemide and MoMA, the Radiofonografio is most ...

These guys take custom interiors to the next level. It is an honor to be a part of their new line!

Gabriel Urist for Barack Obama Pendants
2008-10-26 18:53:00
Renowned jeweler Gabriel Urist, known for his sneaker- and NBA-inspired jewelry pieces, has designed this pendant to show his support for Democratic candidate Barack Obama . The pendants reproduce Obama?s campaign logo in silver, and come on a bright red band. Definitely not in Urist?s typical style, these have a beautiful handmade look to them, and will probably be released in limited numbers. Even if you aren?t able to get one of these for yourself, remember to educate yourselves and vote in the upcoming election.
