‪Mr. Blow Up‬‏

“The way this man describes his ultimate rubber suit makes me think that, in a freudian sense, he has a very womb centered mindset, or psychologicly, he still feels safe and happy within the womb. Think about it, his ultimate rubber suit is a sphere that suspends him and is generally warm and says it will keep him safe.” — suro14

Video Card Museum?

“I stumbled across some photos of this museum while searching for writing material on an obscure Russian site, and after doing some research with the help of Google Translate, I found out this is a relatively new attraction in the Ukrainian city of Kharkov. Alexander, or SArd, as he’s known online, tells the story of how he came up with the idea for a video card museum, on Habrabar.ru. It all started in 1998, when his uncle gave him his first computer powered by a an Intel Celeron 266 processor and an S3 ViRGE DX c video card with 2 MB of memory. At the time, he thought 2 extra megabytes would solve all his problems and he would be able to play the coolest video games, forever. As the years went by he went through many generations of graphic cards, learning new things about them and yearning for the models he could never afford. His passion for them passed the test of time, and at the end of 2010 he already had a collection of 35 video cards, which, with the support of PCShop Group, he was able to display in a private exhibition. It wasn’t much but it was enough for the organizers to understand the potential of a video card museum. People flocked to the PCShop Group store asking questions about the exhibits and donating their own outdated models. When the exhibition was over, the collection had grown to 56 items.” w/ photos

Situationist Drawing Device

The Situationist Drawing Device is a backpack-sized mechanism for recording the experience of landscape. Designed by Ji Soo Han and Paul Ornsby, and operating by way of mirrors, the Device “records a journey taken in an altered state of perception through drawing.” It is an ‘intermediary and interpretative tool,’ the designers add, one that stands between the human body and the landscape it exists within and explores. It is spatial equipment — an optical exoskeleton. Navigational clothing.” w/ photos + video
