Skinner Show In San Francisco

Skinner will be launching a solo show at 111 Minna Gallery, in SF California. I love his tribal, colourful, scary monster-fest pictures. An artist with a bright future imho.

Concept Cars 50 Years Into The Future

Slick futuristic car design from Mazda, Nissan, Toyota & Honda. The brief was to imagine vehicle design 50 years into the future.

Mazda Motonari RX

"In Mazda’s vision of the late 2050s, advances in molecular engineering have rendered metal-based manufacturing obsolete. The rise of ubiquitous computing and artificial intelligence drastically accelerates the automotive production cycle. Cars are cheap, lightweight (around 200 lbs, or less than 100 kg), and equipped with intelligent crash avoidance systems that eliminate traffic accidents."

Toyota Biomobile Mecha

"Toyota’s Biomobile Mecha, a shape-shifting vehicle with nano-laser wheels, can read and adapt to changes in the environment and travel vertical pathways by means of biomimetic feet with powerful suction. In addition, the Biomobile Mecha is powered by pollution. A special skin derives energy from harmful substances in the air, so the vehicle never runs out of fuel (as long as the future skies remain polluted) and restores balance to the environment while it goes."

Nissan OneOne

"Billed as the ultimate pet, the Nissan OneOne (pronounced “wan-wan,” the Japanese sound for a barking dog) is a friendly, helpful member of the family of the future. Able to operate autonomously without a driver, the GPS-guided vehicle can help out by picking up the dry cleaning, fetching the groceries, and taking the kids to school. The vehicle can also assume various positions depending on the driving environment. It reclines to achieve greater speed, and it stands up to increase visibility and squeeze into tight spaces.

Honda 124
"The solar-hybrid powered Honda 124 (One to the Power of Four) is an energy-efficient, modular vehicle that can separate into four different fully functional units, each uniquely suited for specific driving conditions. A combination of robotics, artificial intelligence and molecular engineering (which enables the body panels to be reshaped according to use) allow each module to instinctively reconfigure itself and operate as a fully functional unit. Two of the modules are suitable for short-distance inner-city driving, while the other two are ideal for longer distances at higher speeds."

Sony PSP Go Images Leaked

E3 begins today and these photos have found themselves on the web just hours before Sony's official press release. The Sony Go has 16GB of internal memory, built-in Bluetooth and a memory slot. Apparently it's not supposed to replace the mighty PSP, but be its sexier sister.


In B Flat Music Maker

Stumbled across this really cool music-making concept on Ektopia called 'In Bb 2.0'. It's a bunch of youtube videos that are all recorded in B flat in some way. Put them altogether and have a play around, triggering off various samples. It actually works extremely well and I had a lot of fun experimenting with it!
Play with it HERE.

Mitsuko Hoshino Show

Koukan Gallery Presents:
Mitsuko Hoshino ‘tracing elements’

The first major exhibition of new works by Mitsuko Hoshino in London since 2003 will open at the Gallery Koukan on Tuesday, 2nd June 2009. The show will include twenty-two new works in a site-specific installation.

Mitsuko Hoshino is a London-based artist whose work has been exhibited in the USA, Europe and Japan. She was born in Kanagawa, Japan, graduating from Tokyo's prestigious Tama Art University in 1988. After having worked in the United States and Austria she settled in London.

Hoshino attempts to capture the essence of nature in her largely abstract work, incorporating her eastern background and experiences with western cultures.

Focussing on lines and strokes, her new body of work is chromatically reduced and rendered on one or more layers of semi-transparent material (silicone or drafting film).

Dates: 03-17th June 2009
Mon-Fri 11am-5pm, Sat 11am- 3pm
Private View Tuesday 2nd June 6.30- 8.30pm
