Michael Tittel: Behavior This week we are sharing work submitted to Lenscratch… It does not happen often, but every now and then I will catch someone sneaking a candid of me in public. It is the photographer in me that relates to the strides taken for the perfect image, and because of this I always pretend I cannot see them. Astro Studios - Blog Last Friday night in the Astro Gallery we hosted the latest installment of the Bike + Design lecture series. With the help of the SF chapter of IDSA and the California College of the Arts (CCA) we set up an exploration into innovation, culture and design of Bay Area bicycle culture. Read More...

Prototyping is the process If you google "design thinking process", you'll be presented with a series of diagrams or lists or steps which, in a linear fashion, purport to represent the way a good designer works. They'll often look something like this: UnderstandObserveIdeatePrototypeTest... and cycle back to Step 1 We're all familiar with cooking manuals, and this one feels not unlike a good recipe for chocolate chip cookies... first this, then that, and then do this. Easy, safe, predictable, comfortable.

Making Smiles Through Street Art in Urban Environments by OakoakOakoak uses his humourous street art to make his hometown, St. Etienne, France, less “grey”. Égarements by Cerise Doucède With application, precision and humour, photographer Cerise Doucède created the series ‘Égarements’ (aberration) consisting of installations which represents each of our dreams and obsession or even fears. By shaping her own visions, she reproduces her version of reality and sublimates the most ordinary moments. Objects thus come to life around one or more figures, in intimate locations, at key moments of everyday life. Cerise Doucède creates scenes filled with objects suspended in the space, like pirouetting thoughts. All images © Cerise Doucède | Via: i-ref

Instead I used a piece of Styrofoam from a box we received last week. When I saw it a knew it was perfect for this project =] And instead of painting or covering it with fabric (my first idea) I decided to just go the Decoupage route with hot pink tissue paper.

The blog of artist Lisa Congdon Reflections on Overwhelm I realized this morning that I had not written a blog post with more than 50 words in a long time. And that’s because I’ve been really, well, you guessed it: BUSY. You may recall if you’ve been reading this blog for a few years that I’ve expressed here — more than once — that I do not like the word “busy,” and that I was going to try to avoid using it. But the truth is I keep coming back to that word to describe my life, along with words like “buried” and “slammed” and “overwhelmed with work.” You’d think if you heard me talk like this (or received one of my “sorry I can’t help you right now I’m drowning in deadlines” email responses) that I was, in fact, miserable.
Rare Historical Photos Pt. 2 [19 Pics] Rare Historical Photos Pt. 2 [19 Pics] Oct 2 2012 Our first post highlighting rare photos was quite successful (1,300 views). Contemporary Photography I made this series with the desire to build a set of symbolic portraits inspired by my background of double cultures. I'm French with Middle Eastern origins. I worked by using the pictorial tradition of still lives. I chose to put forward characters where the nature and objects they carry come from different rites and customs. The photographs can be grouped into three metaphorical categories: Barry Rosenthal: “Found in Nature” makes artwork out of trash (PHOTOS). Barry Rosenthal Many people think of beach trash as an unfortunate eyesore. But Barry Rosenthal, who spends much of his time on beaches in gloves and knee-high boots, combing through glass, plastic, and other junk, finds artistic inspiration in what others leave behind. Rosenthal describes himself as a lifelong collector. As a child, he stocked up on baseball cards.
