I know it’s all about the drawing but, the paints (and drawings) by Liz Artinian are awesome

My father, Manny, has always impressed upon me the importance of community. As manager of Crest Hardware I am thrilled to provide a unique non- traditional atmosphere to showcase the art work of the creative and vibrant community we service. I have such a love and appreciation for art and I am fascinated with seeing the transformation of basic hardware materials into something other than what they are intended for.
The Crest Hardware Art Show is a real down to earth experience appealing to a broad range of people that live in the community. The ideas and concepts in the show are rendered on a silly and theatrical level allowing for an accessible experience. From previous art shows I remember walking through the store and seeing the “Brawny” paper towel display and had to take to a second look to see that next to it was packages of “Scrawny” paper towels. Surprises and laughter fill the shelves. You may come to run a simple errand but you leave with a little bit of culture and a big sense of community.

No not blur, designer Tristan Zimmermann created these little gems available at Charles and Maria today for 100.00. Here’s the details….
“Park Planters were created to elevate the common household plant to the status of full grown tree. The potted plant becomes the backdrop for an urban park scene. This is the first in a series of two different park scenes investigating the dark side of the park, the stuff that happens when the sun goes down and you’re not supposed to play in the park any more. You’ll find a lost salesman, a flasher a gay couple and a mugger, with no two scenes being alike ensuring the autonomy of each piece. Beautifully crafted out of porcelain each set contains a plate, the planter base and two parts of the lid, one blank and one with the scene of your choice.”
The entire planter is 6.5″ high and 6.5″ x 6.5″ wide (at the top) – 16,5 x 16,5 x 16,5 cm – and made out of off white porcelain. Get all 4 and recreate your local park in your apartment.
The closest I come to golf is on the wii, even then I would not dare carry a bag like this. I love starwars but come on. I thought the kiss coffin was pushing it. Via the geek.
But!!!!!! if the clubs were lightsabers and lite up and make the “woosh sound when you swing, and crack when you hit the ball……. I would be all over it! Tiger Woods, Look out!
Yesterday I hit up the previews of the Armory Show and Scope, however I do not own a dependable camera. Luckily, forever dependable C-Monster does. Have a look at her Flickr account for more. The image above is a detail of a Barry McGee installation that was reportedly bought by Mr. America, Lance Armstrong. Lucky mo-fo.
Earlier in the week, Supertouch reported that LA artist Skullphone had hacked into Clear Channel’s digital billboards, interspersing the ads with his iconic Skullphone character. News came yesterday from Wired that the billboards were in fact paid for and that Clear Channel was upset that the idea of hacking was involved. To quote Clear Channel’s Tony Alwin. “The advertisement was bought under the assumption that it was art that was in an art show, Any claims about hacking into our systems is false. It’s a lie, even.” This to me sounds like bullshit, and Clear Channel is covering up a weakness in their security system, using denial to buy time to bolster up defense. Only Skullphone can really tell us the truth. Skullphone?
The first time I heard about this show, I was excited. The line-up is amazing, co-curated by Aaron Rose, and full of a fresh crew of photographers. When I first heard about it, the Nike brand was not mentioned. It kind of sours things a bit, but hey, at least they support the arts. Opening tonight.
Tired of lurking over someone to see the subway map? Or trying to map something as your walking down the steps into the subway? Or Coming to NYC for a holiday. Check out the subway map by subtraction for the iphone. See how easy it is….
“nstallation is easy. Just download the ZIP file, decompress it and import the contents into iPhoto. The tiles should automatically import in the proper order, starting with the top left tile, down to the bottom right tile (plus one more for the map key) . To be sure they have, resize your iPhoto thumbnails so you can see only four across at a time; together, they should look more or less like New York City. Create a new album called something like “Subway,” drag the newly imported images into it, and set your iPhone to sync with that album via iTunes. Then buy yourself a MetroCard and take the subway.”

Too bad they cannot make commercials like this anymore.
