Anne Lilly’s kinetic sculptures have such smooth actions and that moments of ‘is it going to crash into each other’ tension that is a perfect balance of aesthetics, art and dance. Picked some of my favourites below, but go to her site to see all of her amazing work.

Kinetic sculptor Anne Lilly uses carefully engineered motion to shift and manipulate our perception of time and space. Her highly ordered and precisely constructed interactive sculptures move in strikingly organic, fluid and mesmeric ways. Employing opposing modalities — analytical and intuitive, rational and emotional — Lilly’s sculptures elicit new connections between the physical space outside ourselves and our own private, psychological domain. They are usually fabricated in machined stainless steel, but require the viewer’s touch to initiate movement: pressing clinical qualities against the sensuous response of each piece.

Ok, this is crazy. An endless puzzle game with unlimited facial images you can create right off your computer. Based on the use of fixed sepia pieces with a set of co-ordinates on the back, you can piece together a pixel version of a panda to Mr. Monopoly to Mona Lisa to you. Available from Hasbro.

Too bad they neglected the packaging.

Our favourite Apple accessories manufacturer, Twelve South,  just solved the enigma of the separate Magic Touchpad and  the Bluetooth keyboard with a simple solution called the Magic Wand. Just a straight-forward semi-circular tube solves the problem by locking the two devices together so you can have a ‘full-size’ keyboard trackpad option for just USD30.

Now doesn’t this leave a great taste in your mouth. Via Japan Trends.

A new web service, Tada Yasai (”free vegetables”), as the name suggests, is offering people veggies completely without charge.

You do have to pay the delivery costs but essentially there is no catch. The vegetables and fruit are simply left-overs from local farmers in Saitama and Gunma, including produce that is not necessarily fit for the supermarkets (e.g. because the potato is an odd shape). Rather than waste the food they will send it to people who don’t mind eating “imperfect” vegetables. Since it comes straight from the fields the taste or freshness won’t be any different to what you buy from the shelves.

Nice photography. Hindu architecture from India. Via but does it float.

A long time ago something existed that was not defined by name or known in its form. It blocked the sky and the earth.

CBS now claims that they own the bansky artwork, and there is no word on what is going to be done with it.

Hahaha! Brillant! By Coudal Partners.

After the great Chicago Blizzard of 2011, hundreds of thousands of pounds of snow were removed from the city’s downtown streets. Loaded by bulldozers and heavy trucks, much of it was piled in the empty lot between our studio and the railroad tracks.

In a collaborative effort between Coudal Partners and The Explorers of the New World Society, an expedition was immediately formed. A bold assault was launched aiming to have our team be the first men to summit this peak. Known for their dexterity and grit, Dawson and Matt were selected for the dangerous undertaking. This is their story.
