Hubless Custom Motorcycle

This amazing looking custom bike runs on the hubless wheels(spokeless wheels)and was designed by the guys at Amen Design.

Inspired by Franco Sbarro's hubless wheels. Hubless wheels work by fixing the rotating parts (brake ring, bearings, hubless rim) onto the outer side of a non-rotating inner ring that attaches to the motorcycle's swingarm or forks.

Advantages include decreased unsprung weight, reduced structural stress (no spokes to transmit forces through), increased braking leverage, more accurate steering, reduced vibration and a lower center of gravity.

Check this bike in motion. Looks so great! A guaranteed head-turner....


Phone Booth Aquarium

A telephone booth aquarium. By artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino for the Lyon Light Festival in France.

"With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically coloured fish; an invitation to escape and travel."

Underwater Sculpture

Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater sculptures in Grenada, West Indies, create a unique, absorbing and expansive visual seascape. Highlighting natural ecological processes Taylor’s interventions explore the intricate relationships that exist between art and environment. His works become artificial reefs, attracting marine life, while offering the viewer privileged temporal encounters, as the shifting sand of the ocean floor, and the works change from moment to moment.

Chaz Bojorquez New Show

Chaz Bojorquez, also known as the Godfather of Cholo-style graffiti has a new show in LA, Jan 31st.

The large, black Old English letters, highly abstracted and carefully designed, reveal strength and control. Besides just looking at the surface, this is an image that demands to be read and understood. These inscriptions achieve incredible sophisticated aesthetic heights and disclose the concerns of the neighborhood.

"L.A. gang graffiti writings are called 'Placas' (plaques, symbols of territorial street boundaries), and are pledges of allegiance to your neighborhood. Its letter face has always been called 'Old English' and is always printed in upper case capital letters."

The Placa is written in a contemporary high advertising format, with a headline, body copy, and a logo.Placas are written with care to make them straight and clean. They are flushed left and right or words are stacked and centered. Rarely are they ever done in lower case free-script, or other than in black letters.

This squarish, prestigious typeface was meant to present to the public a formal document, encouraging gang strength, and creating an aura of exclusivity.
