Hot Knife

Fiona Apple was one of my high school faves, and now she's back with a whole new album of angstiness. My favorite track thus far is "Hot Knife."

Can't. Stop. Listening.

WOW—this origami invitation to the opening of a Louis Vuitton store in Japan is awesome. Designed by Happycentro.

blacknegative's site is one of the coolest I've seen in a while. I had a lot of fun playing around with it (photos don't do it justice—go to the site to get the full interactivity!)—and their work is great, too.

Here's something I haven't seen before...

Luke Evans and Josh Lake, two students from Kingston University, swallowed 35mm film. After the film passed through their digestive systems, they were excreted in a dark room and washed (!). Josh & Luke used a scanning electron microscope to blow the damaged film emulsion up to large-scale black and white prints. They are showing the prints in an installation, called "I Turn Myself Inside Out," which will be on display at Hoxton Gallery in London, UK on June 12th–13th. I must say, they are kinda strangely cool looking.

The Funnel

How fun is this project by NEVERCREW? They proposed this idea for the renewal of the Lugano-Besso pedestrian tunnel. Commuters could draw on the walls with chalk, while observers could view from benches across the tunnel. Looks like fun to me.

You Are Not Special

If you haven't seen it yet, this was a great speech. And while you're at it, so was this, from my alma mater.
