string garden

I came across this amazing collection of hanging plants on ApartmentTherepy.com today.  It makes me think about a network of man-made webs around and between plants.  A visual connection between plants, much like the network of roots that tangle beneath the surface.  I think there is something beautiful about creating a physical network to symbolize the reliance plants have on one another.  Each man-made web would cradle and support a nearby plant.  And if the plant were removed from the hanging string all the other plants would be thrown off balance.  It could be a really beautiful installation.

Houseplants and trees are good for your health, if you don’t know how to take car eof them contact the tree cutting dublin experts— and not just for their visual beauty. Why? They essentially do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This not only freshens up the air, but also eliminates harmful toxins. Extensive research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87 per cent of air toxin in 24 hours. Studies have also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity (by up to 15 percent!), reduce stress levels and boost your mood — making them perfect for not just your home but your work space, too.

An indoor garden can be your refuge from the outside world, and for many people it is a source of great joy. Whether you live in a small apartment, or a large house, by introducing certain plants into your home, you will start to notice improvements to your health, and overall happiness. As well as enhancing your mood and creating a living space that is soothing to be in, plants can also help with loneliness and depression: caring for a living thing gives us a purpose and is rewarding — especially when you see that living thing bloom and thrive.

I love paper!

…and the work of Charles Clary (featured in the Feb 2010 issue of Wired).  These micro-organism inspired peaks and valleys remind me colorful cell cross sections.  And makes me wonder about all the beautiful things that I can not see with the naked eye.  Maybe it’s time to invest in a magnifying glass!

I love when paper and technology meet, like they do at One Bit Wonder.  Leon Hong & Camile Orillaneda combine forces to create the most adorable animated, paper creatures and interactive web/game experiences.  I also appreciate their creative use of javascript on their site.  Well done!

Speaking of games…

I just had to throw in this amazing article from last months Wired (Feb 2010).

“Brandon Stokley’s time-killing run along the goal line was a tactic straight out of videogames”.
Life no longer imitates art…..Life imitates video games.
Is the “game” the new “art”?  Fascinating how the actual game of football is now being influenced by the virtual game of Madden.

I wanted to skip this article, but what’s a girl from Denver gonna do?  I’ve gotta give it up for my team…”Go Broncos!”

I’m loving the work of b., an Athens based artist.
Her feminie, iconic designs brighten even the dingiest of walls.  The yellow is reminiscent of the Os Gemos characters I love so much.

I LOVE scratch off tickets in the sense that I love the idea of them….(not that I buy them).
I love this scratch off work “Hidden Love Song” by design team Milk and Tales.

And now I know how to make my own scratch off!
