Alvar Aalto

‘But if you want my blessing for your home, it should have one further characteristic: you must give yourself away in some small detail. Your home should purposely show up some weakness of yours. This may seem to be a field in which the architect’s authority ceases, but no such architectural creation is complete without some such trait; it will not be alive.’

-Alvar Aalto

Litt finsk sprezzatura der…

Jeg Liker The Paris Review

september 22, 2010

The Paris Review har nettopp gjort samtlige av sine forfatterintervjuer fra 50-tallet til våre dager tilgjengelig på nettsiden sin. Hyggelig av dem!

The Paris Review – Interviews

‘…for the good writers and good poets, the non-drumbeaters and non-axe grinders. So long as they’re good.’

Jeg Liker Denim Debate

september 21, 2010

‘The idea was simple…

While in the market for new denim, I found that there wasn’t a way to easily compare and contrast different brands. Sure you can find photos of new denim, and photos of destroyed denim nearing the end of their functional life, but nothing documenting the process in between. Frustrated by the lack of clear information, I reached out to a network of stylish colleagues to partake in a debate of sorts. Being highly involved in branding and marketing, I understand the value that these “tastemakers” bring to the debate. These individuals will bridge the gap between brand and buyer, giving an honest look at denim to help everyone from the denim snob to a first time purchaser.

The Denim Debate is an evolving project. We need your help to make this a valuable and enjoyable resource…’

Denim Debate

Fint med litt denim geekery. Særlig siden jeg er på jakt etter noen nye par…

Idée Labs

Og spesielt Multicolr Search Lab.

‘We extracted the colours from 10 million of the most “interesting” Creative Commons images on Flickr. Using our Piximilar visual search technology you can search the collection by colour’

Nyttige greier, altså!

Wallace Stevens

september 19, 2010

‘I thought, on the train, how utterly we have forsaken the Earth, in the sense of excluding it from our thoughts. There are but few who consider its physical hugeness, its rough enormity. It is still a disparate monstrosity, full of solitudes & barrens & wilds. It still dwarfs & terrifies & crushes. The rivers still roar, the mountains still crash, the winds still shatter. Man is an affair of cities. His gardens & orchards & fields are mere scrapings. Somehow, however, he has managed to shut out the face of the giant from his windows. But the giant is there, nevertheless.’

-Wallace Stevens
