You may remember a while ago when we first got our pet-camera, and Trixie tried it out for us. The camera clips to your pet’s collar and takes a picture once a minute so that you can see their view of the world! Well, today we had a new photographer try out the pet-cam for us! Meet Pilgrim, the sweet dog of Carrie, our Assistant Art Director.
Pilgrim wore the pet-cam for a while today and showed us the home office from a doggy point of view! His pictures are pretty fun, check them out below!
Isn’t this tea bag crazy? Korean designer Wonsik Chae came up with this idea for a light in the shape of a tea bag! Each time you dip the bag in and out of the water, like regular tea, it gets darker – or rather, brighter! The bag has florescent chemicals in it that react with the water and glow. Reminds me of those old party glow-sticks! Via.
I’m really feeling these Matryoshka dolls by Irina Troitskaya. I’ve always loved Matryoshka dolls, and these ones are so cool and unique! All of her sets have a specific theme – for example, the top set is naturally white animals, another set is called the most popular animals from Russian fairytales. I love it! See more on Booooooom!
I find these pieces by Do-Ho Suh really interesting! His work mostly deals with questions of individuality and anonymity, or the transience of existence, reportedly inspired by his time in the military. There is something about all the small parts building up a whole in the first two pieces that is really fascinating to me. What do you guys think? See more of Do-Ho’s work on Design Crisis.
Whenever it’s time for the Thursday Poll, it always seems to surprise me that it’s Thursday already – every week! But it is Thursday, and it’s time for our poll!
We decided last week that Orange Ocean is our favorite color of the Boyeee Tee, though it was actually a really even vote!
This week, I am excitedly looking at our hats – soon we won’t have to wear winter ones anymore, but sweet summer hats! I can’t wait! We have some really cute summer hats right now, and I am wondering which styles you prefer…
First, check out our Belize Sun Hat.
I am loving Erica Somogyi‘s paintings lately! I saw some of them on My Love for You, and since then I have been on her site looking at everything! I love the colors and the dreaminess!
Coincidentally, Erica’s work has been making the rounds lately, and on this Friday night at 7pm you can see her work at Space 1026 here in Philly! For those interested…
Genetic is our new favorite denim brand! So many people in the home office have them and have made them their everyday jeans. These home office girls pictured are some of the happy customers! (including myself! I got a phone call during the picuture taking.)
What we love is how super comfy they are and the great fit. The wash is really detailed with wear and whiskers, and the holes give them some attitude. But they are still subtle so you can wear them every day.
Ever heard of The Sketchbook Project? It’s awesome! Something like 2,000 people from around the country signed up, and were sent a blank Moleskine sketchbook. The only instructions were to send the books back by Feb 15th, and fill them with “everyone we know.” Art House, which is a group dedicated to bringing art to the masses, is responsible for the creation and managing of the project. I think that is so cool! I only wish I would have known in time to participate! But maybe next time?
For now, the books that Art House got back are going on tour, and tonight they stop in Philadelphia! Head over to Chris’ Jazz Cafe at 1421 Sansom Street tonight for a chance to flip through all the books. The books will be making the rounds at a bunch of other cities as well; click here to see a list of all the places and dates! Below find just a few pages of the many many books – click here to see a gallery of the submissions!
