running with scissors

sarah turner has created some of the most beautiful light fixtures i have ever seen from recycled plastic bottles. talk about up-cycled: these thoroughly modern luminiers are perfect for every ceiling and get you thinking about what else can be re-purposed. send your ideas to sarah: she has the future vision.

a night at the museum

a fun time was had by all at the national portrait gallery and the museum of american art.
this event began at oyemel's and ended at zintanya's.

i am a signtologist (fan)!

sign of the times: that's the signtologist! using street signs as his canvas, dan ericson aka the signtologist paints icons for all to see. his style reminds me of andy warhol's rendition of alberto korda's photograph of che guevara. he has even done a halting tribute to michael jackson, the way i prefer to remember the king of pop.
