Johannes P Osterhoff inaugurated his piece ‘Home, Sweet Home‘ at cafe St.Oberholz last Friday. Was fun! Nice one, like it! It was also shown at Ars Electronica 2010 but this is the perfect spot in Berlin’s most hardcore ‘Mac Cafe’ ;-). Congrats Joahnnes!

I am very pleased to present a super fun cooperation with a very good friend Ariel Schlesinger!

Looptaggr! A great new tool to express your opinion in public. The latest streetart technique to support your favorite gang ( i.e. Wikileaks). Full tutorial and all pics at http://looptaggr.com.


I’m excited to be assisting with the curation of Fashionware, the first fashion show at CES (the Consumer Electronics Show). The show is produced by Living in Digital Times and Mommy Tech and will have a selection of fashion ranging from corporately produced on the shelf garments to experimental prototypes. I finished up sketches this weekend for the look book. This middle sketch was my most challenging. How do you style a taser and smart sunglasses with a chiffon dress?


THERMO-MAN® is dressed completely in protective apparel and engulfed in flames so factors such as garment construction, fabric weight, material type, style, fit and the impact of outerwear and undergarments can be taken into account. Results are then analyzed to determine the extent of thermal protection Nomex® provides.

If you are interested in attending a THERMO-MAN® demonstration and seeing first hand how garments made with DuPont™ Nomex® helps protect workers from burn injury, sign up here.


I can’t believe this! Germany entered the scene on the digital globe today! Congrats! Google Streetview is finally life! Although it seems Google had some trouble keeping the good quality. Many images are blurred or even black, strange – how come? ;-) ….. Oh! whats that?!? Look what I found!!! F.A.T. patrol is on Steetview OMG! yes true, I heard they tagged the car with a GPS last February … what?!? They even hijacked it?!?! (http://fffff.at/google-street-view-car/don t miss the video) …


OMG! It seems that Google for one day even considered to run Streetview in Germany as a paid premium service … it would make sense! They spend so much extra money on ‘post production’ ;-)


Terracycle Caprisun Lunchbox

Terracycle upcycles consumer waste into new salable goods. They primarily harvest their raw material from schoolchildren as part of charity drives, though they are now placing recycling stations at certain Walmart stores. At the Walmart centers they pay 3 cents per piece, but only for a narrow range of product packaging; the website supports a wider range of recyclables.

The spirit of the project is wonderful, but the problem is that it creates zombie advertising and branding for these undead consumer objects. Which is actually not all that surprising, as the Walmart program is sponsored by the very brands whose packaging are featured in the upcycled goods.
