play a song on my torso

What's better than wearing bling? Possibly, having musical instruments tattooed on your body that other people play to make music.

Meet the lovely, meravigliosa, completely wild and creative creature from Korea, Maia. Amazing things will come from her bag.
How did you come to learn about Fabrica?
There was a Fabrica exhibition held in Seoul in 2005. I hadn’t attended the show, but I found out about it afterwards. I applied 3 years after.

What have you been doing before now?

I majored in painting, so I did a lot of that. For money I was freelancing design and illustration. I was also making an independent art and culture zine (www.chillzine.com) with my two friends back in Seoul.

What do you expect to get out of this experience?
Special friends, Italian influence, and good projects.

What will you miss from home?
Everything. Especially my two friends, our magazine and my everyday 1hr subway ride to the studio.

Anything else you'd like to share with us?

Maialino means little piggy in Italian.

Interview with Cameron Sinclair

Fabrica interviewed the co-founder of Architecture for Humanity and Open Architecture Network. During Sinclair’s workshop at Fabrica, held from July 14 to 17, 2008 and entitled “The Beautiful Game - Social Change Through the Power of Football”, the architect gave a wide range interview on major social topics such as culture, environment and economics.

To see the video interview:
http://www.fabrica.it/workshops/sinclair_videos.html


Cameron Sinclair is the co-founder and ‘eternal optimist’ for Architecture for Humanity, a charitable organization founded to develop architectural and design solutions to humanitarian crises and provide pro-bono design services to communities in need. Currently the organization is working in fourteen countries on projects ranging from school, health clinics, affordable housing and long term sustainable reconstruction.

Trained as an architect at the University of Westminster and the The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, Sinclair developed an interest in social, cultural and humanitarian design. After his studies, he moved to New York where he worked as a designer and project architect.

Sinclair and Architecture for Humanity co-founder Kate Stohr have compiled a compendium on socially conscious design titled “Design Like You Give A Damn: Architectural Responses to Humanitarian Crises” (May 2006, Metropolis Books).

In 2004 Fortune Magazine named Cameron Sinclair one of the Aspen Seven, seven people changing the world for the better. He was the recipient of the 2006 TED prize and the 2005 RISD/Target Emerging Designer of the Year. Recently he was selected as a 2008 Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and named as one of the 2008 Principal Voices for CNN.

As a result of the TED Prize he and Stohr launched the Open Architecture Network, the world’s first open source community dedicated to improving living conditions through innovative and sustainable design.

wild animals in banal settings

30_02.jpg

The photographer Mikel Uribetxeberria creates images that combine his own photos with those of images of animals that he finds on the internet. The result? Inspiring, funny, disturbing.

cadbury eggs

In light of the frequent eyebrow raising here among the Fabricante, this video needs watching:

Greek women, fishing, and Martini's

hookers1.jpg

Greek women, fishing, and Martini's. Sounds good huh? Well my friends, there is a catch (pun intended)....*avoids shoe thrown*. The wonderful designers Greece is for Lovers have come up with the fantastic dinner party talking point (pun intended) Hookers' Delight. As you may be picking up, there is a lot of fun to be had with this concept, yet the product maintains its elegance. Go take a look, a very intelligent observation on drinking culture, either way, you'll have to get in while the fish are biting, there are just 80 in stock! *boo'd off stage*.

In light of the darkness...

Last night we were enlightened by the dark beginnings of horror cinema; the 1922 classic Nosferatu. This is just on of the recent 'golden oldies' that we have been watching lately as part of our Thursday Night Movies in the Fabrica cinema. As I watched it I could help getting images of Jackson's Thriller, and of course.. how could I forget the old Count muppet from Sesame Street! I stumbled upon this today and it seemed a great creative edit on our childhood Counting Count.
