    WIll Bravo's "Work of Art" Be a Hit?
    Yes, I know about the new Bravo reality TV show, Work of Art. No, I don’t intend on watching it. Yes, I’ve read tons of gossip about it; no, I don’t think I’ll read too much more (well, I will peek, I admit that much).

    Andy Warhol's Sketches Found on the Moon?
    One small step for man, one giant leap for modern art?

    Japanese Manholes Become Beautiful Art

    Japanese Manholes Become Beautiful Art
    The Japanese have a propensity for turning the mundane into its exact opposite—making it either really cute or really stylistic. Usually, really cute. I mean, we're talking about the culture that gave birth to Pokémon, anime, and almost all things anthropomorphic.

    Animation Short, Grand Theft Google
    Honest Directors animated this short called "Satellite Car Chase," a mash-up of Google Maps's aerial street views and a Grand Theft Auto style car chase. It was originally made for the collaborative film series Psst! Pass It On 3, and it does a fine job of taking the fantasy chaos of the game into a less sensational (more real?) setting. View ...

    Designers Teach the Idea of "Simple" to Students

    Designers Teach the Idea of "Simple" to Students
    “People who think that small (dumb) things don’t matter have never slept in a room with a mosquito.” This is the mantra I’ve always used with my university students. It gets their attention, and it's a good way to look at the world we inhabit and the things we create. I don’t mean to be pedantic, but simple is just too ...
