Venus figurines are some of the earliest sculptures man is known to have created. The oldest of these figures dates back to paleolithic times, some 40,000 years ago. They are thought to represent ancient fertility goddesses and are characteristically depicted with generous female attributes. The Venus of Cupertino is a modern take on this ancient fertility symbol.

The Nokia “Kinetic Device” made its debut at the Nokia World show in London recently. Two years in the making, this gesture-based gadget lacks keys or buttons in favor of a thin flat OLED screen, which executes commands when the body of the device is flexed. Experimental carbon nanotubes within the device allow it to be twisted and warped to scroll through photo albums or stop and play music. Designer Tapani Jokinen maintains that this Kinetic Device will likely not see production soon but represents the tip of the innovation iceberg from the Scandinavian mobile company.

Despite the sudden chilly weather, it’s absolutely beautiful outside, as long as the sun permits. Happy Halloween everyone!Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to….love what you do. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Your time is limited. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life” - Steve Jobs

Some city councils get it, others don’t. Tapping the creative talents of street artists, illustrators and graphic designers is an effective and cool way to make bland public spaces, old buildings, bridges and car parks new again, and to freshen up the concrete jungle.
It is also an effective way of keeping graffiti away. Plus it draws attention to the building or structure as “potential” not as something to be hated. Maybe it will even bring a buyer, a new occupant or additional creative ideas about how to revitalize the building? Anything but the current dilapidated state of abandoned spaces!
