Song Wig – A Hairpiece that Shares Music

Song Wig is definitely our product OTD

So just when you thought you’d seen it all, Party Creative Lab have created the Song Wig – a very unique bluetooth-enabled hairpiece that houses tiny amplifiers and is made from numerous earbuds allowing the wearer to share music with their friends. Ummm, ok it’s a lil WTF but pretty cool when you think about it although not sure how practical. We’re seeing Song Wig listening parties – gettin’ wiggy wit it! 😉

Thomas Barbèy’s Analogue Photomontages

Thomas Barbèy creates surreal images without any digital editing

We love this selection of analogue photomontages by artist Thomas Barbèy who creates a surreal world without any form of digital editing, manipulation or retouching. Using photographs taken throughout the past 20 years, Thomas Barbèy skillfully combines the negatives of his images before enlarging them in a darkroom. Very impressive work! 🙂

Alexey Zakharov – The Old New World

“The Old New World” by Alexey Zakharov is a fantastic animation that uses historic photos of major U.S. cities to travel back to the early 20th century via an elaborate CG steampunk time machine. Love it! 🙂

Tilt Brush is Google’s New 3D Paint App

Tilt Brush allows you to create artwork in a 3D environment

Tilt Brush is an exciting new application by Google that uses virtual reality to paint in 3D. This combination of art and technology allows you to create paintings in a three dimensional environment, through brushes of course, using unlikely materials such as fire, stars, or snowflakes – below is a great demo vid featuring street artists Faith47 and Tristan Eaton trying it out. The new Tilt Brush app is currently available for the HTC Vive headset. This is so very awesome!! 🙂

Steven Siegel – New York in the 80s

Steven Siegel captures a decaying & apocalyptic 1980s New York

Steven Siegel is an American photographer who captured New York from the 1980s in very raw, almost apocalyptic, images. Through his fascinating photographs focused on urban decay, wastelands, and abandoned spaces, Steven Siegel reveals a time when New York City was a much more dangerous and broken-down place – risky, dirty, and chaotic yet somehow had a sense of honesty, openness, and freedom which according to him was lost after 9/11. You can check out all of Steven Siegel’s work on his Flickr account. Amazing stuff! 🙂
