Artek's 10-Unit System in the guise of a chair

Artek's eco-friendly 10-Unit System



Continuing the creative collaboration between Finnish furniture house Artek and Japanese designer/architect Shigeru Ban, 10-Unit is a furniture design concept rooted in simplicity.

Running with the recurring theme of rational, sustainable design, each of 10-Unit’s eponymous individual parts can be rebuilt in a variety of different forms – a chair, a bench or even a table.

She makes them from self-portraits taken at the computer... using different effects and backgrounds (I think).

As expected, some people are…less than enthusiastic about way The Pirate Bay’s trial ended. As a result of a seemingly coordinated action called Operation Baylout, the site of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) is being DDoSed; at the time of this writing, it’s not completely inaccessible but it’s definitely loading very slowly.

There are also reports that the IFPI site has been defaced by hackers, and that The Pirate Bay supporters are sending black faxes to IFPI’s fax machines in protest. Of course, most of these actions are illegal in many countries, so no one is openly taking responsibility for them; but as you can see in the discussions on irc channels at server anonnet.org, most visitors are supporting the actions against the IFPI.

Audiovisual paintings by Osada Genki

17 Apr 2009

Osada Genki, a physicist turned painter and ambient noise artist, creates highly textural, abstract audiovisual paintings using snippets of altered video — often of human faces and forms — smothered under thick layers of kaleidoscopic digital glitchiness and wrapped in lush, gritty soundscapes.

Nick Cave’s Soundsuits are physical manifestations of his energy. He has said, ‘I believe that the familiar must move towards the fantastic. I want to evoke feelings that are unnamed, that aren’t realized except in dreams.
