Tag, You're It! Graffiti Is Appearing Everywhere And On Everything. ShareThis Graffiti: Etymology: Italian, plural of graffito [scribbling; graffito, a scratch]: usually unauthorized writing or drawing on a public surface. (source: Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary) above: Graffiti by tagger 'sweet' Graffiti, once synonymous with vandalism, reached an art form several decades ago. As an art form, Graffiti has reached such a level of status that it is frequently referred to as 'street art' or 'urban art' as opposed to vandalism, tagging and graffiti.

Islands Fold ~ Publishing NOTCOT Case study#1: Furriadroxiu and 12 Asian cities. Nel post Italie da Abitare abbiamo pubblicato un’introduzione al progetto Case study#1: Furriadroxiu and 12 Asian cities, gli autori ci hanno aggiornato sugli sviluppi del loro lavoro. Sempre nell’ambito dell’iniziativa Italie da Abitare, segue un approfondimento sulla ricerca in corso, condotta da LaDU_laboratorio multidisciplinare densità urbana. Vedere significa essere predisposti a cogliere. Ma ci sono dei luoghi in cui è necessaria una vera e propria immersione esplorativa e un andare alla deriva, fuori dai binari consueti del viaggio, per formalizzare strumenti e metodi di indagine capaci di rivelarne l’essenza. Se si lascia la costa di Teulada e si penetra nell’entroterra, dando le spalle ad una delle spiagge più frequentate e note della Sardegna meridionale, si scopre Malfatano, un territorio denso di suggestioni e significati, che si rivelano solo attraverso una pratica insieme osservativa e partecipante.

Tread: Expensive bags made from recycled bike truck tires - Boing Boing Gadgets The same people who make the Solio solar chargers have released a whole new line of bags, laptop sleeves, and gadget cases under the “Tread” brand. Each of the items is made from recycled inner tube tires from trucks. Most of the smaller bags look fairly typical, but the “Transient Attache” and the “Sleeve” are really nice looking. The inherent folds of the inner tubes make the material look like animal leather. Even though the material has been saved from the dump you won’t be getting second-hand prices: the Attache is $200, while the smaller cases are around $20-$30.
