I’ve watched this about 20 times, and it keeps getting funnier. Thanks Ric

So I had a very interesting morning. I went to swissmiss’s CreativeMorning. CreativeMornings are basically Tina’s personal TED Talks, only these are free and there are Danishes served. If you fancy yourself a creative and haven’t been to one of these yet, you’re really doing yourself a disservice. Hell, even if you don’t have a creative bone in your body, you’ll find these speakers interesting.
Today’s speaker was Rachel Sussman, a photographer who is photographing the oldest living things in the world. We’re talking 2,000 plus years here. Really interesting stuff. The Discovery Channel or National Geographic should be jumping through hoops to make this a show.
And then on my way from the talk to the subway, I passed Gleason’s Gym. Gleason’s is one of the stops on the Key to the City art project, a cool summer event. I had to pass some tough looking people to get to the locker. Those boxers are no joke.
All in all, a full morning.
The lovely ladies of Design Glut had some really nice things to say about the model citizens show.
About an hour before the model citizens reception started, Table Fights took place out front (in view of the Javits Center no less). Basically, it’s robot wars only the robots are tables. There’s a ring, an announcer, and table carnage. It’s fantastic.
They are going to be having another event in the Boston area June 19th. If you can, you should check it out.
Robot sculptures by Gordon Bennette. They are in a store window on 5th Ave at 16th St. Totally worth checking out if you’re in the neighborhood.
I recently joined the Gowanus Studio Space. Finally a place I can make a big ol’ mess.
There are so many great people/designers/artists/tools at this place. And they have a lathe. Although, it kind of feels like I’m cheating on my wife with my new girlfriend.
The work they create is fantastic. But they recently released a build it yourself instructional of one of their chandeliers. It has everything, step by step directions, parts list, vendor sources. It’s basically the top secret recipe on how to make one of their wonderful lamps.
I think it’s incredibly brave to release something like this (don’t know if I could do it). But I know I can’t wait to make one of these.
