Polaroid: The Poladroid Image Maker*

28 08 2009


Polaroid have announced that they will stop selling Polaroid films by end of this year. Which I personally think is really sad! But….we wouldn’t live in the digital age if there wasn’t an app to help all of us “old school” photo fans.

It’s called the  “The Poladroid Image Maker” .Download it and  simply drag and drop any of your images in the little camera. You can even shake the picture ;o)

Even Justin Timberlake is a fan ;o)

Banksy: The Village Pet Store & Charcoal Grill – NYC*

10 10 2008










Haven’t posted anything in a long time…but I thought this one might be worthwile and a good kick off into a new set of posts.

Thanks to a friend (Emmylou) as well as notcot.com I found this great piece of Banksy Art.

A few days ago Banksy opened up a walk-in piece of art. It’s a small pet store located at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village of New York City.

The stores windows and interior are filled with a number of creepy (animatronic) installations, from a rabbit applying make up, to two Chicken McNuggets feasting over some BBQ Sauce, up to a CCTV cam attending to it’s little cam baby.

Here is a clip that gives you some more insights into the store…

Melbourne: 3-D Parking Garage*

Here is an award-winning parking lot (never heard about that before).

The artist that designed it gave the indicator signage a 3D brush up…looks a bit spooky but it seems to work.

London Festival of Architecture: Jelly Competition*

5 04 2008

Found this one on the dezeen blog. As part of the 2008 London Festival of Architecture dezeen and Bompas & Parr (self proclaimed Jelly Experts) are asking architects to submit designs that will be made into jellies and exhibited (and eaten) at a special Architectural Jelly Banquet.

Dezeen writes that entries will be judged on innovation, aesthetics and “wobble factor”, with the best jelly moulds auctioned to raise money for Architects for Aid.

Pretty funny competition ;o)
