I agree with Oliver Jeffers: “People of the USA, if you are concerned about the steps the new administration has already taken in the first few days of office (regarding climate change, women’s reproductive rights, LGBT rights, immigrant rights, civil rights, and the creation of ‘alternative facts’), then outline what matters to you in a postcard mailed to your senator. That is why they are there.”
Queer Wang created this piece based on Quantum Theory which describes that one object could exist at the same time in different parts of this world in any unexpected form.

Now that politics here in the U.S. has become entirely absurd, we might as well wear fingers and ears as jewelry.
What better way to start out this Monday morning than with pictures of chickens in sweaters.

There were so (!) many good signs at the Women’s March yesterday, but this one, takes the cake. Way to go, little girl!
Hey world, where are you all marching tomorrow?
— Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) January 20, 2017
I will be marching at the Women’s March in NYC tomorrow, proudly wearing our three custom Tattly that we did in partnership with the Women’s March on Washington. A team of volunteers will distribute them at the march in Washington, D.C. and New York City on Saturday, Jan 21st. More information on how you can get your hands on them here.
Big thanks to my Tattly team members Yng, Arianna, Hayden and Cristina for pulling this all off last minute.

Each year the fine folks of Hiut Denim compile a list of 100+ Makers And Mavericks, the one hundred+ people that got them to utter those words ‘I wish I had done that, made that, invented that, thought like that, changed that’. These are the people who shone the brightest for them back in 2016!
(Gah! I am included!)
“Schedule daily “white space” in your calendar, where your only task is to think or take a walk and daydream. When you try to generate ideas, shoot for 100 instead of 10. Defer your own judgment and you’ll be surprised at how many ideas you have—and like—by the end of the week.”

Any architect will tell you that, structurally, a triangle is the strongest geometric shape. Architect Kengo Kuma has taken this wisdom and rendered it into a playful and interactive building set. I’d love to play with these.
Mmuseumm is a curated display of artifacts housed in a NYC freight elevator. The museum fits 3 people at a time. I love this so much. Find it at 4 Cortlandt Alley in lower Manhattan, New York City.
