Last weekend I was cruising around town and stopped at an indie store only to find one whole corner of the place dedicated to Fred & Friend products. It was heavenly. I stood there for probably more than a half hour laughing and checking out all their cool stuff.

Thousands of Plastic Figures Hold Up the Floor One of the most exciting contemporary artists of our time, Korean Do Ho Suh, created this large sculptural installation that doesn't look like much until you come closer.

He calls them, fittingly, his Labyrinths.

Pleix Filter: installation view all News Film Commercial Print Installation Sunken bridge-Agency Art Animation A series of moats and fortresses were built over the West Brabant Water Line region of the Netherlands during the 17th century in order to provide protection from invasion by France and Spain. Fort de Roovere was surrounded with a shallow moat that was too deep to march across, and too shallow for boats. In turn the earthen fort had remained protected –until now. The bridge and its components have been made from sustainable hardwood that has also been treated with a non-toxic coating protecting it from fungal decay and increasing its durability… Just a little wave and you won’t be so amazed anymore! Very nice and beautiful concept still.

He can answer their questions quite blithely however. He is a cyborg – and that’s official. Harbisson’s story is more than a little interesting. Born in 1982 to a British father and a Spanish mother he was diagnosed in his childhood with achromatopsia. This is a syndrome that has links to five separate diseases but for Harbisson it meant that he could only see the world in black and white.
