All zippered up

I can’t say I’ve ever seen a building zippered up before. Oh those wacky people of  Uruguay! [via Wooster Collective]

H is for Holy Crap!

There’s no hiding my affection for Marc John’s witty illustrations. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, he releases my favorite one as a notebook. Oh I’m picking this up right now!

All the news that’s fit to print

Polish born artist Aleksandra Mir transformed her gallery space into a full-fledged tabloid newsroom. “News becomes history as soon as it is reported. What fascinates me in talking about history is the paradoxical movement backwards while obviously propelling ahead with a story into the future. The 15-year time period covered in this show is of a recent past, a past that still unites many New Yorkers in recognition of a city at once familiar and long gone.” I’m floored by Aleksandra’s thorough research and even more impressed by her execution.

Walk it out with your camera

Photowalking is simply walking around with your camera taking pictures of things you may find interesting. It’s a great way to spend time outdoors, get some exercise and meet fellow creatives by organizing an event. It turns out there are also a number of Flickr groups dedicated to the practice. Here’s a sampling found on the San Diego Photowalking group.

I guess Wal-Mart is good for something

It’s been a while since I set foot in a Wal-Mart, but I might have to arm myself with a camera soon. People of Walmart, a site just recently launched to document the Wal-creatures of big box retail, is the new AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. As the creators so eloquently state “If you haven’t ran into the 6’2″ bull-dyke with a shaved head, rockin a wonder bra, flannel cutoff shirt, and jean shorts at 2 a.m. when you’re there to pick up frozen pizza, Doritos, and Chips Ahoy cookies, then you can get the fuck out right now.”
