Fancy Fridays .10

Tenth week! These were my top five favorite fancy’d items. Clockwise from the top left:

  1. Walls Notebook by Sherwood Forlee and Mihoko Ouchi, available here. With the ongoing trendiness of street art, this is a simple yet ingenious idea.
  2. Senseless Drawing Bot by So Kanno and Takahiro Yamaguchi. Really adds another layer to that oft-spoke comment about contemporary art: I could have done that. I like this reply I saw in some poster: But you didn’t. It’s all about the idea. I personally think this robot is cool and is art in and of itself.
  3. Starry Night Light by Lee Eunyeol. You must visit the full website if you like this! :0 This photographer sets up actual elaborate light installations to create these magical shots. Deserves a full post in the near future.
  4. Ancient imperial road in Hangzhou, China. This is such a cool, subtle classic-meets-modern design. As a side note, I’m really fascinated with contemporary art movements in China. Contemporary artists in China are in a unique position of developing in a country that is at once an emerging superpower but with limitations on freedom of expression; a quickly modernizing society that is influenced by both its relatively backwards recent history and rich ancient cultural history, evidenced by the conflicting shallowness and depth that that creates.
  5. Minuscule Chair by Fritz Hanson. I like that it clearly resembles the classic mid century modern chairs but is its own refreshing take. The scoop, lines, and cradle are perfect.

A good weekend awaits :)
