Beauty Basic For me the hair dryer has existed ever since the day I was born but research on the net tells me that it was the 19th century inventor Alexandre F. Godefoy whom I should be really thanking for the first salon model. However, the first handheld model came out only by the 1920s and we have seen it change its avatar ever so often. This time we showcase a spherical model that goes by the name of Comet. Oh…and Comet your dog, breathing down your hair does not count as a blow-dry. Comet Hair Dryer by Hoang M Nguyen & Yanko Design

AGGRAVURE: Pounding Out Art With 500,000 Staple Murals The AGGRAVURE series by Baptiste Debombourg is a set of three incredibly stunning staple murals comprised of approximately half a million of the metal tackers. Though Baptiste describes the title of the piece as being derived from the aggression inherent both in renaissance engraving subjects and in the act of stapling, I choose to view it as the aggravation of placing flimsy, pointy metal bits into anything resembling anything. Though I realize the twisted, stacked staples are to create texture and depth (and likely have some deeper artistic meaning), I can’t help but imagine the artist screaming in rage as his stapler jammed over and over again, or every time he crushed his own thumb and dislodged fifty staples for the sake of one. These intense metal portraits are centered around Icarus mythology; each strikingly depicts muscular men tumbling out of the sky.
