This Desk Features 1,100 Yards of Scrolling Paper to Record Your Ideas


Handwritten list makers, doodlers, and note takers – rejoice! Minneapolis College of Art and Design student Kirsten Camara designed the Analog Memory Desk, which is perfect for people who like to write things down. It has a built-in mechanism for scrolling 1,100 yards of butcher paper that acts as a moving table cloth. Once you fill up part of the paper with ideas, to-dos, and reminders, simply crank the handle for a brand new surface. The paper is embedded in the table’s legs.
Camara’s inspiration for the piece came from an obsession about how we remember the past. “There are a hundreds of little things that we don’t try to remember every year or even every week,” she writes. If we’re able to document all of these small thoughts in one place (as opposed to tiny scraps of paper), it could help improve our thinking or work later.
The desk pictured here is made from hard maple and includes a glass panel on the table top. It’s not available for purchase, but Camara has shared the…

Italian Job-Inspired Bus Sculpture Hangs Off the Edge of Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong


Does this make anyone else feel a little queasy? As part of this year’s Art Basel in Hong Kong, artist Richard Wilson has perched a full-sized bus sculpture on the edge of Hong Kong’s Peninsula Hotel. The work is inspired by the 1969 British heist movie The Italian Job when Michael Caine and his gang of gold robbers hang precariously off a mountain top. (See the “cliffhanger” clip, here.) Called Hang On a Minute Lads, I’ve Got a Great Idea, based off the final line in the film, the sculpture is guaranteed to stop passersby in their tracks as they look up and see the full-sized replica of the bus from the movie, a vintage twin-axel Harrington Legionnaire coach. The work hangs off the edge of The Peninsula’s seventh floor Sun Terrace and is part of the hotel’s new collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts. It will be on display from March 12 to April 8.
British artist Richard Wilson has twice been nominated for the Turner Prize. His ingenious installations are known to play with…

Beautifully Surreal Wedding Photos Show Couple Walking on Water


We’ve shown some beautiful wedding photography on My Modern Met before, but this one takes the cake as the most stunningly surreal. When rain covers the ground with water, Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, like the famous Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, gives off the amazing illusion of people walking on water. The reflective surface acts like a giant mirror.
Though couple Ethen and Heather had their wedding in Salt Lake City, they decided to shoot their romantic newlyweds photo session at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The conditions made it a chance of a lifetime for photographer Tony Gambino who claims he had never been more excited about shooting a wedding in his entire career.
As he wrote on his website, “When Ethen & Heather approached me about doing their wedding, I was completely blown away. I have been a fan of Ethen’s work with MTV, Nitro Circus and The Godfrey Clan for a long time! Then, when I found out that we would be able to shoot their portraits at the Bonneville Salt Flats in…

Colorful Mosaics Twist Photo Perspectives Like a Kaleidoscope


Photographer and graphic designer Victor Tretiak turns real-life photographs into colorful mosaics that distort the scale of the images, offering a delightful change of perspective. Each piece produced by the Thailand-based artist resembles the face of a Rubik’s Cube in which some of the panels have been reordered in the wrong rows. Some of the pictures within the squares that make up his tropical scenes appear closer or farther away than the rest of the panorama, making the viewer feel like they’re exploring an exotic landscape through a pair of binoculars.
Tretiak’s love of developing rolls of film is especially evident in this line of projects. The rows of squares that comprise his scenes look like colorful strips of lined-up negatives drying in a darkroom. However, instead being comprised of different shots from the same roll, Tretiak creates his “film-strip” mosaics from one image broken up into many frames.

Playful Coffee Table Creates the Illusion That It’s Held up


Christopher Duffy of Duffy London is no stranger to creating playful, well-designed furniture, and he’s done it again with the Up Balloon Coffee Table. It’s the successor to his rectangular 2012 version. Like it, the now-circular glass surface gives the impression that it’s being held up by red, gold, or silver balloons. Their strings form the base and lay on the ground in a swirling pattern that doubles for support.
This delightful table is constructed using toughened glass, metal resin composite, and toughened steel rods. Despite having the word “toughened” in the material description, this piece conveys a feeling of weightlessness. It’s a testament to Duffy, not only as a designer, but as someone who can create wondrous, everyday illusions.
The 2015 edition of the Up Balloon Coffee Table is limited to the production of 25. Prices start at around $8,300 US dollars for this unique piece of furniture.
