Thomas Doyle, the creator of these incredible dioramas, says in his artist statement that he feels work done in such small scale allows for the intimacy one might feel peering into a museum display case or dollhouse. I completely agree – and I think that is one thing that is so appealing about these pieces! It is quite like looking into a dollhouse for me, except rather than wanting to jump in and join the scene, I am worried for the little people in these dioramas – they seem like they are in peril! Still, amazing work, and you can check out Thomas’ site to see more.
I saw this picture over on Knight Cat and I can’t get it out of my head! What sticks in my mind is that chain headband! I know that more than likely it isn’t very comfortable, but with the current craze for all things chained and studded, I have to confess I like it! It caught my eye immediately. Have you guys seen any chain headbands elsewhere? Do you think it looks cool too, or are you not feeling it? Has anyone worn one? Are they comfortable? Thoughts please!
I couldn’t resist sharing this USB port tie with you guys – what will they think of next!?
These neat designs are all from Marcel Wanders Studio, with the light being their most recent crochet creation. I love how they look! I only wish there were a few more photos so I could see more how they are made, or maybe see the fixture in the light for example. Still, I’m intrigued, and I would love that light!
The screenshot below looks pretty unassuming, but I can assure you that those little squares are actually something awesome! The Tone Matrix is a sine wave synthesizer, the key word for us here being sythesizer, as in you make music with it! I can’t explain very well how it works or what it does exactly, but if you go play with it you will not be able to stop! Try it! I really think you guys will love this – enjoy!
These pieces by Tara Donovan are both minuscule and immense! As always, I love to see small objects put together to create something huge, but even cooler that the small objects are so normal – buttons, pencils, styrofoam cups… That stuff never ceases to amaze me. See many more of her pieces here.
