Jad Abumrad on the Function of Music

My office neighbor and über-talented friend Mac Premo sat down with Jad Abumrad, of Radiolab fame and talked about sound, music and the function of music. Then he turned that conversation into a film. I am glad he did.

Under Our Skin

What do we mean when we talk about race?

Under Our Skin grew out of conversations about how The Seattle Times covers race at a time when national and local events — the furor over police shootings, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, protests on college campuses and charged campaign rhetoric — dominate headlines. Absolutely fantastic.

Thank you Mac Premo and team. You are the best!

JAM – Online Courses for Kids

JAM

I am continuously impressed by what Zach and his team are coming up with. First DIY and now JAM: online courses for kids. I wish this would have been around (and the internet) when I was a kid, growing up on the Swiss country side, *so* hungry to learn and connect with other kids. Can’t wait to see what other classes will be next! (Secretly hoping for a sewing class!)

Golden Ratio Finder

Golden Ratio FinderGoldenSectionFinder-blue-silo-01-PCGSFB_2048x2048

Perfect proportions observed in nature often follow the theory of the golden ratio. Historically, artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty in a theoretical rather than intuitive way. Use the Golden Section Finder, a pocket sized gazing device, to locate the proportional perfection in your surroundings. Totally going to use this with my kids, walking around the city!

Designer Sebastian Bergne was asked to design a soap dish and after much thought decided to redesign the soap instead: The Ring Soap doesn’t need a soap dish and it stays dry. Brilliant! Plus, it looks beautiful.

Autoeromatons

HeyHeydeHass makes beautiful art object machines.

When they started working on this project they had just two requirements: the automata they were about to produce had to perform a sensual act when being handled – in a safe for work way. They also needed to be simple, beautiful objects when in rest, made from high quality materials. Sexy alternatives to all those Executive Ball Clickers.

Team HeyHeydeHaas does the majority of the work on the Autoeromatons in house and by hand. From figuring out the mechanics of the automata and casting bronze at a local foundry, to polishing till you drop. They are a thing of beauty.
