Russell Chatham

Russell Chatham was an American landscape artist based for most of his career in Montana. Though he also produced oil paintings, he is known in particular for his beautifully subtle color lithographs, some of which use 30 or more layers of color to attain the final image. His work shares some characteristics with tonalist painting, but I think of it as something aside and quite unique. I love the soft, poetic nuances of his color and value relationships, the meditative stillness of his scenes...

A New Type of Design Degree Program Now Available: Master of Arts in Design in Health

Living on a farm is like having a free gym membership. And while I don't mind doing the physical labor--even the shit-shoveling part is tolerable with my trusty respirator on--I've sustained persistent shoulder and back injuries that are slowing me down, and I now attend a physical therapy facility twice a week.This has given me the opportunity to observe the design of a type of facility I'd never been in before. And it's pretty good: The space is spacious, cheerful, well-sunlit without admittin...

Our Best Coverage of Automotive Designers in 2019

When I'm trying to explain what industrial design is to someone who's never heard of it, I usually begin with the example of car design. For some reason laypeople can grasp that someone had to first draw the Corvette, more easily than they can grasp that staplers, medical devices and housewares don't just automatically come out of factories.With 1.4 billion cars on the road worldwide, for better or worse automotive designers have outsized influence on what our world looks like. This year we had ...

Danish Design vs. Swedish Design of Bicyclist Resting Points at Stoplights

Following our post on this bicyclist-friendly resting point at stoplights in Sweden…Image credit: Ryder …several of our readers sounded off with opinions. Designer Jason Livingston wrote "In discussing this same photo with some bike commuting design colleagues, we concluded that this object was likely placed here not to allow people this comfort, but to prevent them from performing the same maneuver using the pole in front (which would put much of the bike, in not the rider, into traffic)."I had...

Storing Fragile Christmas Ornaments

As a professional organizer, I've seen clients open boxes of fragile ornaments only to find a number of them were broken. End users with precious delicate ornaments are going to be well served by using some sort of protective ornament box. I'm going to (mostly) skip over the hard-plastic boxes; these can trap moisture and they sometimes contain chemicals which can damage the ornaments. But there are plenty of other boxes out there, and some of them have notable features. View the full content h...

An automated stir-frying appliance that walks the walk and stirs the wok!

A lot of home food-prep still requires manual interaction. Flipping the pancakes or the steak, constantly stirring your risotto or fried rice, etc. What if, just like a blender that helped you knead dough, or whipped cream so you didn’t have to, you had an automated appliance that did the stirring? Sort of like a rice-cooker with a dough-hook attached to it.Think of the Solista automated stir-fryer as an appliance that does exactly that. The cooker comes with an electrically heated wok and an up...

Spectacular, tiny room hidden behind a hinged electrical outlet cover

Japanese artist Mozu makes incredible, miniature dioramas with tiny, winking electronic devices; their latest piece is The Secret Base of Kubito, a tiny workroom hidden behind an electrical outlet. Mozu says of it, "This work, which was born from the delusion that 'If I'm small, don't make a secret base in the wall', and the wifi router that flashes with a glowing TV are all handmade miniature works."

“Cats” Movie Review: “Oh God, My Eyes!”

Ty Bur: “You’ve heard of the “uncanny valley” effect? The eeriness or revulsion felt when looking at a humanoid figure that’s not quite human? The digital era has given us many examples of the uncanny valley, but “Cats” is the first movie to entirely set up shop there.” – Boston Globe

You’ve seen levitating speakers, but have you seen a levitating SNEAKER?

Now I wish we had more images of this product, given how uniquely weird and impulsive it is, but there’s just the one. I’m thankful, however, that Lewis Hilsenteger (better known as Unbox Therapy) made this video displaying exactly what the Levitating Sneaker Stand from HYPELEV is, and who it’s for.The Levitating Sneaker Stand is, to simply put it, for the person who can afford a $350 levitating stand because they just casually spent a fortune on a pair of sneakers.

How To Deal With Racist Operas? Show, Don’t Hide

“To survive, opera has to confront the depth of its racism and sexism point-blank, treating classic operas as historical artifacts instead of dynamic cultural productions. Opera directors should approach the production of these classics as museum curators and professors — educating audiences about historical context and making stereotypes visible.” – The New York Times

The 23-year-old liquid finishes for up to six months in French cuvée casks from the Champagne region. Dark gold in color, the 80 proof whisky coats the mouth with lavish creaminess.
