Crazy Origami

Brian Chan

Origami has always seemed so cool to me… and I’ve always sucked at it, too. But Brian Chan, an MIT student, certainly doesn’t.
The pictures above are an entry into a ship folding contest. But he went above and beyond and decided to have a KRAKEN ATTACKING IT! And it’s the whole thing was folded out of just ONE piece of paper. This guy does some amazing things, way better than a lot of people out there. And he’s really only been hardcore into folding for about 3 years. This guy is going to be doing amazing stuff in another 10.

Check out a couple more pictures after the jump…

Black & White Vodka by Supper Club

Black & White Vodka by Supper Club

I saw this a while ago and I kept forgetting to blog about it.
Supper Club, the international nightclub/bar/eatery where you can make out (and sex up) with anyone, anywhere, has started to offer these amazing bottles of vodka. Drinking black or white vodka sounds so rad. The black reminds me of drinking pure evil… but you know like, pure evil that gets you drunk but doesn’t steal your soul. The white reminds me of milk, and I drink like, 15 glasses of milk a day, so that sounds appealing to me.
I have no idea where you get this, unfortunately, or if it’s even for sale. But if anyone can get some, they should definitely send some my way.

The Vader Project

Darth Vader, the best bad guy ever created, is now getting an art show in his honor!
40 artists are coming together to decorate full-size replica Darth Vader heads! The list of artists they got is pretty incredible too, including Tim Biskup, Shag, Dalek, Mars 1, Paul Frank, David Horvath (who is featured in the picture above), Jeff Soto, and lots more.
The exhibit will be held at Star Wars Celebration IV on May 24th at the LA Convention Center.

is the website of Hernan Mariano Lombardo from Buenos Aires.
The guy is a one man band, doing everything from graphic design, textiles, art direction, product design, environmental design and more I’m sure.
I need to be more like this guy, he’s so frigging good at everything he does.

+Toy Story: The Vladmaster

I used to have a View-Master when I was a little kid. I remember the idea of those plastic binoculars being better than the images inside. I always thought it would make a better camera than a picture viewer.
Anyway, the link above is to a rad article about a woman calls herself ‘Vladmir’, who takes the classic kids toy and turns it into a fine art project.
It’s a really good idea, actually. I like that it takes this really simple object and makes it a little more special.

This got me thinking about how the View-Master could be used as an awesome promotional tool, especially for a photographer.

How cool would it be to send your photos to art buyers, magazines and the such, in a View-Master! You could make a custom box for it, maybe silk screen the little round discs… all sorts of options! I’m guessing people have done this before, but I still think it would be so much fun. The picture above is my idea, although, I’d want a purple handle for mine!
