If you have ever driven to the Trader Joe’s in Queens, via Metropolitain Ave, you will notice a ton, I mean a ton of Cemeteries. It made me realize why do we waste so much space for the dead. I am not saying the dead are not sacred, its just going to cemeteries to remember a loved one is strange. Which brings me to Carbon Copies.
Carbon Copies, designed by Nadine Jarvis, are pencils made from the carbon of human cremains. 240 pencils can be made from an average body of ash – a lifetime supply of pencils for those left behind.
Each pencil is foil stamped with the name of the person. Only one pencil can be removed at a time, it is then sharpened back into the box causing the sharpenings to occupy the space of the used pencils. Over time the pencil box fills with sharpenings – a new ash, transforming it into an urn. The window acts as a timeline, showing you the amount of pencils left as time goes by.

Well if you were one of the lucky freaky few who lined up today to get the Heath Dead Ledger action figure, your sick
“BATMAN fans have cleaned out New York toy stores’ entire supply of HEATH LEDGER’s JOKER action figure from Mattel, within minutes of them going on sale.
Devotees of the comic book series lined up early to clear shelves of the $9.99 (£5) toy, which shows Ledger in his final completed role before his premature death in January from an accidental drug overdose, aged just 29.
An employee of Times Square’s Toys R Us store says, “There are none left in the warehouse. You will be waiting a while if you want one.” Some fans are believed to be buying up stock, convinced the figure is a collector’s item – others are selling them on auction site eBay for up to $55 (£27.50) each.
Ledger will be seen as The Joker alongside Christian Bale’s Batman in The Dark Knight – which hits movie theatres worldwide from July (08).”
