The Hydro Flask Cooler Cup is a life-saver for those hot summer picnics

I imagine that there are just a few things that are worse than drinking lukewarm beverages in the heat. Imagine cracking open a chilled can of soda, taking a sip, and then forgetting about it for a minute only to find that the soda is now at room temperature. It doesn’t taste the same, does it? Certain drinks are best served chilled, but the minute you’re outdoors, you’re left with a very small window of time before those drinks ‘lose their cool’.The Hydro Flask Cooler Cup greatly expands that w...

Is Laser Cutting Right For Your Electronics Project?

Why Five Engineers Chose Laser Cutting To Bring Their Bright Ideas To Life Laser cutting is ideal for engineering projects because there’s no minimum quantity and it’s relatively inexpensive when compared to 3D printing and injection molding, for example. Additionally, electronics projects often require precision cuts for knobs and buttons, and laser cutting can deliver this kind of accuracy. And since the laser works off a digital file, you can achieve a level of consistency whether you’re maki...

The Gemic Watch Tells Time Through Undulating 3D Surfaces

Staring at the Gemic tell time is almost like looking into a kaleidoscope. it’s an ever-changing landscape of undulating surfaces and forms that enchants, and also tells the time.“Time is not just a number but also a story of the life”, says designer Xundi Li, who has, through the Gemic, attempted at giving time a shape. Ultimately each moment in your day is different from the last, and the Gemic watch tries to reflect that, by looking different with each passing minute. The watch consists of tw...

Are There Really Any Reasons Left Not To Repatriate Plundered Cultural Artifacts?

“The British Museum is currently facing repatriation demands from Italy, Greece, Egypt and the Easter Island; the idea that it is a better host to the Parthenon Marbles than Athens’ state-of-the-art Acropolis Museum is preposterous, as is the idea that the Rapa Nui don’t know how to look after Hoa Hakananai’a, the Easter Island stone statue they believe is the living incarnation of a prominent ancestor.” – Prospect

Highlights From The 2019 Bombay Beach Biennale

An "art moment" turned "art movement" in the Southern California Desert A small art movement is gaining momentum in Bombay Beach, just 40 miles from the Palm Springs area. The town is situated on the edge of the Salton Sea, California’s largest inland body of water. The Sea was created by accident in the early 1900s, when a levee broke on the Colorado River dam, …

Clickbait Scammers Are Ruining Self-Publishing

And some of them are earning $100,000 a month. In the Amazon self-publishing universe where authors earn a share of revenue based on how many people are reading, scammers have so gamed the system that quality legitimate books are being edged out, and money is going to clickbait. – The Guardian

“La Forza Del Destino,” “Alice in Wonderland,” And A World-Gone-Mad Brexit

“Everything is in confusion,” sings Fra Melitone. That was also true for the world outside of the opera house during Brexit week. As many have commented, English political life is hurtling “down the rabbit hole,” and it’s perhaps worth noting that “La Forza del Destino,” in 1862, was an unlikely cultural sibling of that quintessentially British masterpiece “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” which Lewis Carroll began writing in that same year and was published soon after, in 1865. Brexit is th...

Lee on Leonardo (once again): BBC Radio Quizzes Me on “Salvator Mundi” Conundrums

I was surprised on Sunday when the NY Times ran a long front-page article about the status (or lack thereof) of the $450.3-million Leonardo da Vinci painting. I was even more surprised when I got a call from BBC Radio 5, which wanted to interview me about the painting’s stale trail on its live news show for insomniacs — Up All Night with Rhod Sharp. – Lee Rosenbaum

Black charred-timber home embraces forest views in Zrich

Local architecture firm Hajnoczky.Zanchetta Architekten collaborated with architect Angela Waibel on the design, which takes advantage of its wooded location with full-height windows that capture views of the changing landscape.

Rhodeo Sunglasses

Made in collaboration with Thierry Lasry, Rhuigi Villasenor’s sunglass collection has dropped under his label Rhude. Produced by hand in France with Italian acetate, the accessories are eclectic and bold but inherently timeless. Whether it’s the concentrated emphasis on craftsmanship or Villasenor’s luxe eye, these sunglasses—especially the champagne and green iteration—are an investment but a worthy one.

Copyrighting Dance Moves Is A Messy Business Nobody Was Ready For

It’s not just about the Fortnite lawsuits. “Choreographers and performers have danced around this issue for more than a century. In 1892, Loie Fuller was denied a trademark for her famous ‘serpentine routine’ because back then, the law only protected works that told a story. Then came the modern dance movement. In the 1970s, copyright expanded to cover abstract and non-narrative movement. But like a lot of today’s viral artists, many dancers never bothered to register their work.” (includes vid...

London’s Mayor Says The City Needs A “Game-Changing” Approach To Cultural Infrastructure

London has one of the most vibrant cultural scenes in the world. So why does it need a new plan for cultural infrastructure? For the same reason cities need to plan for any other services or physical amenities. And this isn’t just about preserving or building buildings or creating cultural zones. – Arts Professional
