This Children's Wardrobe Ignites a Sense of Wonder Through a Series of Hidden Tunnels and Doors 

HAO Design's website opens with a quote from the Secret Life of Walter Mitty:"To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life." Their latest project—a massive wardrobe with pastel tunnels—allows all of that and then some:Two children might further their training in the art of precociousness via this interactive wall. To the left, a bookshelf towers with hidden knowledge. At the center, a chest of drawers...

How to Embrace Authenticity in Every Presentation

In an increasingly skeptical culture, authenticity is a vital part of every presentation. Authenticity allows your audience to trust you as the presenter and, in turn, trust that your content is real and valuable. But with statistics that show at the highest percentage that only 1/3 of our current generations believe most people can be trusted, how do you deliver authenticity to your audience? At Ethos3, we know authenticity is hard to come by, which is why we have put together a few keys to del...

Speakers that let you design your own surround sound

The Museg is a pretty neat looking guitar-pick-shaped speaker. Unlike most speakers that are either squarish, cylindrical, or circular, the Museg’s use of a triangular form feels slightly unusual, but makes it deservingly eye-catching.However, it isn’t Museg’s shape that’s worth lauding, it’s its ability to use its shape along with modularity to be portable when you want it, and an immersive music setup when you need. When used individually, the Museg is a slim speaker that’s great to use solo. ...

How Netflix Uses Social Media To Get Its Shows To The Center Of Popular Culture

The company uses its social and brand editorial department as the engine that keeps Netflix shows and movies at the forefront of the pop-culture conversation. By imbuing its social platforms with the personality of a meme-happy fan who lives for TV and movies (rather than being stunt-driven, deadpan, or, worse, mocking the very audience it seeks), Netflix’s approach goes beyond mere promotion and jumps armpit-deep into participation and collaboration.  – Fast Company

The environmental problem with toilet paper and what to use instead

Having access to soft, fluffy toilet paper is one of those modern conveniences that makes life in the 21st century that much easier. But did you know that using this luxury could be doing more damage to the environment than driving a large, gas-guzzling SUV? On average, every American uses three rolls of toilet paper each week (28 pounds per year), meaning that just 4 percent of the world’s population is responsible for 20 percent of total tissue consumption. This is destroying forests and impa...

What It Costs To Have Fun (Ticket Prices Across Arts, Sports, Spectacle)

A comparison of price data across entertainment categories throws up a few surprises. Those who claim that a night at the opera is only for the elite should know that attending a top-of-the-range gig is nearly as pricey: an average opera ticket in London costs £81 ($103), compared with a global average of $96 for the 50 most-lucrative music tours. And the Royal Opera House in London boasts that 30% of its seats go for £35 or under – but good luck finding that sort of deal for Bruce Springsteen...

Poor air quality found at over 2,000 sites across the UK

A new study shows that close to 2,000 sites across the U.K. have poor air quality due to excess pollution. The cities most affected by high levels of toxic gas were in Wales, England and Northern Ireland, all of which were tested well beyond what is considered safe. One of the main culprits behind the alarming numbers is nitrogen dioxide, a gas that is considered one of the most harmful of urban pollutants. Kensington, Chelsea, Leeds and Doncaster all tested high in nitrogen dioxide in 2017. Th...

The Macchina Volantis can drive on roads and fly in the skies!

It is, at some point of time, every urban commuter’s dream while stuck in a traffic jam, to just lift off and conveniently fly to your destination, right above all the cars, bikes, and buses stuck in eternal gridlock. That literally makes the Macchina Volantis the thing that dreams are made of. Designed by ‘serial-problem-fixer’ Stephen Fries, the Volantis is part car, part EVTOL. With seating for 5 people, winged flight mode, and a diesel range extender, this thing promises to fly at three time...

Are Outsider Artists Held To A Different Moral Standard?

“I asked a few art dealers why we hold mainstream artists to different ethical standards. While one disagreed with the premise of my question, another posited a simple rationale: Our acceptance of artwork with upsetting or offensive motifs ultimately depends on the creators’ intended audience.” – Artsy

How Do Artists Get To Be Famous? Study Says It’s Who You Know

While past studies have suggested that there is a link between creativity and fame, Paul Ingram and Mitali Banerjee found, in contrast, that there was no such correlation for these artists. Rather, artists with a large and diverse network of contacts were most likely to be famous, regardless of how creative their art was. – Artsy

Andrew Wyeth’s Secret Paintings That Made A Woman Famous

“Over the course of more than 15 years, Andrew Wyeth created 250 secret paintings. He hid them from everyone—including his wife, who was also his business manager—in the loft of a millhouse near his home in rural Pennsylvania. When they were discovered, in 1986, they generated a media frenzy that extended well beyond the art world. The Helga paintings, as they came to be called, all depicted a single subject: Helga Testorf.” – The Atlantic

Little Simz feat. Little Dragon: Pressure

From Little Simz’s new record Grey Area (out today) comes “Pressure”—an impressive track that showcases Simz’s versatility over a double-edged beat. She enters the piano-backed track voraciously, then the beat changes—drums, distorted vocals and heavier bass kick in—and Simz shines through it. “Take a walk in my shoes / Or any other young black person in this age / All we ever know this pain …

The New York Times “Does” LA Art (Again)

“As the latest New York Times critic to go spelunking in this city’s museums, galleries, studios and alternative spaces, from Brentwood to Boyle Heights, let me get my verdict out of the way fast. Is Los Angeles, in 2019, the equal of New York as a center for contemporary art? Sure, of course it is.” – The New York Times

We’re In A Golden Age Of Advice Columns. Why Is That?

John Paul Bremmer (who writes the column “¡Hola Papi!” for Out): “This advice renaissance might seem paradoxical: Why hasn’t distrust in the media as a whole negatively affected advice columns, where you would think that trust is paramount?” His answer: “a growing desire among the public for members of the media to express moral clarity.” – Columbia Journalism Review

This Ecuadorian home uses the natural elements of rammed earth as a foundation

Rammed earth is a building technique that uses packed raw materials from the earth like gravel, sand, silt or clay to build walls and foundations. Casa Lasso, designed by Rama Estudio in San Jose, Ecuador utilized the rammed earth approach (or “tapial”) to create five strong walls made of natural elements to both protect the home from strong winds and improve the thermal quality inside the home. The rammed earth provides added support for the wooden-beamed roof every 70 centimeters. Glass wind...

"Art wins over propaganda. Why?"/"All the time, yeah. Nothing wins over art."

"Nothing is powerful enough to stand in the way of art. Whatever artistic merit the [Soviet 'realist'] canvases have stays as a permanent part of them, and the propagandistic aspect disappears as the context — the political context — disappears. All that’s left, in some sense, is the pure art and the craftsmanship. At some point, some of the paintings I have are just very realistic renditions of working-class people. All the propaganda is disappearing, so it’s very interesting to have those arti...
