To Demand Respect Your Posture Must Be Erect.

August 12, 2009

dreamy seatingIf there was an inanimate object to describe my horrible posture, it would be this 1938 Ironrite Deco Health Chair.

Perhaps that is why I want a set of them so badly…along with half of the things on Factory20.com

Get Dark

Growing up, by mother was always against painting any walls, any color. So when I moved into a place where I was given a 6 room redecorating challenge, I went crazy with painting and wallpapering. I loved every room in that house. I used all of the colors that inspired me. The problem with it was that since I wasn’t bored of seeing the same rooms when I left, I couldn’t seem to utilize the same colors in my new apartment without associating it with the previous apartment. 

So I decided I needed something new and bold. Almost everything I own is white. I feel like too  much white against a white wall can look empty and cold unless it is a cluster of off white antiques chachkas.

So I went completely opposite.  

Telling my family that I’ve painted a wall in my bedroom black, is like telling them that I’ve quit everything to follow in the footsteps of Michael Campbell.

I’ll admit that when I put the first coat down I panicked slightly, but then remembered how nice it can look, if its done properly. 

I have nothing to show for my black room yet, except for a happy face.

Fisting Tables

its a table...

Receiving a Bachelors in industrial design followed by a Masters in fine arts, Wendell Castle is known for being one of the first to incorporate art into his furniture.

I feel like he makes too much Alex Mack furniture now, but his ‘vintage’ collection is pretty unique. Who am I kidding! I will always love him for his rocking chairs and fisting tables.

beaded start trek

I want this piece from the Devorah Sperber Mirror Universe exibit in my living room. No furniture. Just this very well thought out beaded curtain.

I‘ve seen what this artist can do with a spool before, at the Brooklyn Art Museum. It was interesting I guess, but I’m glad to see that her core of creativity lies in unusual reconstruction of more things than just thread. 

 

other dork art includes:

vhs-sculptureThis David Herbert 8ft high VHS made of foam, plexiglass, and latex paint.

RubikMansonInvaders have pieced Charlie together through 10 feet of  Rubrik’s Cubes.

The same artist did this tile piece of Goldorak!

GandolfASCII art being brought to another level, when this dork turned Gandolf  digital.

 

this is all cool and whatever, but nothing compares to Jim.
