Very inspiring short video about being creative…
I am always impressed by new printing technologies and I’m constantly bugging our production team about what they can make happen with our own equipment. But let’s face it, I also love Star Wars. When I saw these dresses hit the runway at Rodarte’s Fall 2014 show I fell in love.
Could you imagine being younger and your bedroom has a large window covering with the moon of Tatooine!? Or the Death Star? Whatever your allegiance, step into a galaxy from far, far way and let your inner kid dream! — Jon
art takes all forms… be interesting to see what the courts have to say about this one. – Jesse

I am a huge fan of the olympics. Winter, summer- doesn’t matter, I love it all. I think I secretly love the winter olympics just a TINY bit more, because somewhere deep inside I have dreams of being a super slalom skier.
That being said, I am super excited about the Sochi Winter Olympics starting up today. This crazy art installation by Asif Khan makes me even a little bit more excited.
Visitors to the Olympics can have their faces scanned by a 3D scanner, which then re-creates a model of their face on the side of a building out of a system of 10,000 cylinders and LED lights. The building will show up to three faces at a time for 20 seconds each.
Check out this video of them testing it out.
So cool! It also kinda creeps me out. Seems very hunger-games-ish.
GO USA! – Shelly
I love to see people having fun with their work! These are by Artist Lila Jang.
Our Associate Creative Director David Winton brought this to my attention, it’s mind boggling. There is a rich history of the intersection of art and science and while this may not exactly qualify as art, it is a terrific example of pushing our boundaries, of thinking and working creatively to create something new. – Jesse
No, not Photoshopped. Real furniture inspired by sketches! Daigo Fukawa created these for his senior thesis exhibition at Tokyo University of the Arts.
Architecture matters… people and work like this inspire me to find a way to make a difference through art. We try, but Diébédo Francis Kéré humbles us all. – Jesse
Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love this time of year- everything about it. And one of the things I love the most, is SNOW. Not only is it crazy and fun, and you can build snowmen and have snowball fights and wear silly hats and boots- but it’s also incredibly beautiful.
Alexey Kljatov is a macro photographer who put together a homemade system using a reversed lens to capture the amazing and incredible detail in individual snowflakes.
“Moscow-based photographer Alexey Kljatov is a keen macro photographer, and for the past couple of years he’s been producing closeup shots of snowflakes. More recently he decided to boost the magnification of his camera – a Canon PowerShot A650 – by attaching a reverse-mounted Helios 58mm F2 lens. His inexpensive homemade rig delivers extraordinary magnification, revealing an incredible amount of detail in the intricate crystals of ice.”
So quiet, graceful, and detailed- that these just happen naturally blows my mind.
