Sorting out the Design Library

Sorting out the Design Library

After working at a design studio for a few months I resolved to take a cue from my previous organization system and take a crack at coming up with a better system of organizing the textiles in the design library.

Mapping out Pop art

I absolute love it! Ebay has assembled a map detailing the popularity of searched for artists by state. This has created a fascinating geographic map detailing the spread of modern popular aesthetic tastes across the U.S.. Massachusetts prefers Norman Rockwell while Tennessee prefers Thomas Kinkade and then way over on the opposite coast Washington State prefers the comic artist Frank…

This weekend I decided to finally put the last few touches on my new paint organizer 2.0. I've always hated riffling through boxes filled with paint tubes not being able to find what I needed easily. I wanted some way that I could just simply glance over and see what I had in stock or what I needed to mix…

5,000 Moving Parts

I'm excited to learn that in November the MIT Museum in Cambridge, MA will be hosting a new exhibit on kinetic art . The museum has had a long affiliation with the kinetic artist Arthur Ganson who's body of work could only be described as bridging the gap between Rube Goldberg and 19th century automatons. His overly complicated and delicate machinery…

"Folklorist Alan Lomax spent his career documenting folk music traditions from around the world. Now thousands of the songs and interviews he recorded are available for free online, many for the first time. It's part of what Lomax envisioned for the collection — long before the age of the Internet." http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2012/03/28/148915022/alan-lomaxs-massive-archive-goes-online
