Growing up in Asia, I have only come across the Chinese finger paintings which uses finger and black ink that the painter draws traditional paintings mostly of flowers, animals or scenery. And now there's Judith Braun who uses her fingers to draw but in a totally new way which she dipped her fingers in charcoal or pastel and mostly her drawings are in abstract forms and bilateral symmetry.

nendo: Blown-Fabric, 2009 Interestingly enough, whenever there seems to emerge a new high-tech material, it arrives ‘camouflaged’ in a vintage design. I feel this way again with nando’s blown-fabric designs. Discovering “Smash” , a specialized long-fiber non-woven polyester, a light and rip-proof product of Japanese advanced synthetic-fiber technology, can be blown into unique shapes, nando applies this technique to create Japanese-style chochin paper-lanterns. ‘Smash’ … can be manipulated into different forms through hot-press- forming technology. ‘The fixtures are weighted at the base by the light source.(..)

It’s an effort that rose out of New York City designer Marco Antonio Castro Cosio’s graduate thesis at New York University. The project aims to reclaim the forgotten space on the tops of city buses, while enhancing the quality of urban life by proliferating green spaces on these unused bus roofs. A prototype of the rolling gardens has been installed on the roof of the BioBus, a mobile science laboratory and the first bus with an extensive green roof system. It has been growing for five months while travelling around New York City and as far as Ohio. Bus Roots joins the ranks of mobile gardens planted on trucks, trains, and other roving sites. Raising the Roots Cosio estimates Bus Roots can add greatly to the city’s green space. For more info or to support the project, contact the designer.

(Not really… just a new blog layout…) The columns of the previous one were not big enough to really post my work so I thought this might be a better solution. This happy pendant was upcycled from an old dictionary bound for the trashcan. After experimenting with wire for a billion hours, I finally figured out a nice method to string beads through the center to give the pendant a little extra oomph! Like this: Like Loading...
