josef hoffman

i had no idea that one man designed so many tabletop items that i have been coveting for years. many of josef hoffman's classic designs are available at the neue galerie shop. if only it wasn't a recession...

nice mailer

i rarely (if ever) get psyched to see an email from adbase in my inbox (especially the ones sent in the middle of the night. what are they thinking?), but this was a cute idea from a photo/illustration rep, snyder and company. very cute and it made me look.

today is the day

wow. what a long election. i woke up very early this morning ready to vote and ready to win. my line wasn't too bad, but my co-workers came across many lines that were hours long. i can't stop reading the news online today even though we won't know anything until tonight.

here is a super cool graphic from the new york times that shows the current moods of democrats (in blue) and republicans (in red). very telling.

this is the COOLEST thing in the whole world!

ok, maybe i was a little tipsy when i tried it last night, but it's seriously amazing. these are digital photos from my computer that i turned into awesome polaroids in just a few minutes.

the program is super fancy and makes all the right sounds and develops in front of you in real time and you can even shake it to make it go faster. you can stop developing if you like the way it looks or you can wait until it's fully "developed". insane!!

isn't baby grace the cutest?

click on the photos to see them large. the detail is super real.

alejandra laviada

alejandra's art explores the connection between photography and sculpture. in her recent series, she created sculptures from found objects and then documented them beautifully with her photographs. her images are truly beautiful in their simplicity and the colors and compositions remind me of morandi paintings. i still need to see that show at the met.

you can see her work in person through november 8th at danzinger projects in nyc.

color photographs

this beautiful tartan ribbon is the first color photograph from 1861. insane. the flower still life is from 1905. both are so contemporary. it blows my little mind how old they are.
