Babybot for a Better Life

And I thought the fire breathing babybot would be the last time I saw a ginormous baby robot. Isabel Coixet, the Spanish director who both wrote and directed Bastille (one of the 20 segments from the wonderful film collage, Paris, je’taime) has created an enormous and strangely realistic infant for the Shanghai Expo 2010. In response to the expo’s theme, “Better City, Better Life”, Coixet says she hopes to remind the world that “all our actions have direct consequences on our children’s future and that we have to react to this”. Amen, sister.

Every Painting in the MoMA

And this is why the internet is so great. This video claims to show every  painting in the MoMA as of two weeks ago. You’ll spot plenty of Van Gogh, Kahlo, Gauguin, Picasso, Miró and Matisse. Among my favorites are Gauguin’s Still Life with Three Puppies, Matisse’s Goldfish and Sculpture , Seurat’s Grandcamp, Evening and anything by Rothko. What about you?

The Great Wave of Hippity Hoppities

As a lover of all things lagomorphic, I can’t help but adore the art work of Kozyndan. I was pretty excited to see this new vinyl prototype of their popular work, Uprisings (which is based on Hokusai’s The Great Wave of Kanagawa). You can purchase prints here at their shop.

…and the original…

… and some other rad Kozyndan creations

Sick On Sin

I’ve been a big fan of Sick on Sin for awhile now but just finally purchased a shirt. Their merchandise consists of t-shirts, pins, magnets and compact mirrors.

All shirts are on sale for $21 through Saturday. Besides their official site, they have a blog and an Etsy shop. Check ’em!

I bought a shirt with this design..

Here are some other radical designs..

Spike!

Spike Press comes out with some of my favorite band posters. The first 3 pictured below, for the National, are incredible. Does anybody know what the images are that make up the colored portion of the prints? It looks like Rodin’s Gates of Hell (which is mind-blowing in person – check it out if you’re ever in Paris) but it seems like it would be hard to make a print from a sculpture, so I’m lost. You can purchase prints from their site or view a collection of prints from past and present at Gig Posters.

Vintage Minimalism Aglow

One day I’ll want to live in a house like a real grown-up. And when that day comes, I think I’ll buy something from KAM Lamp Company. Retro-y handmade deliciousness. The Swarovsky crystal light is like a Victorian disco ball. Love it!


LOST: I’ve got a serious problem

Ellie is Lost with the Others by Jeremy Asher Lynch

I’m completely and helplessly addicted to LOST. I’m already mourning the end of the series and there are still 9 episodes left. The most common complaint I hear from people about LOST is that the show never answers any questions but keeps asking new ones. I couldn’t care less. I love being teased so I could go for another 6 years of the same thing.

Here are some cool LOST inspired art pieces. Even if you’re not a fan, there’s some cool stuff by some talented artists worth following.
