Found Cameras and Orphan Pictures

Do you recognize these photos? They may be yours. Ifoundyourcamera is a wonderful site where you can actually recover your lost camera with a little help of those who found it by publishing some of your -hopefully not too embarrassing- images.


In any case, looking at strangers' photos is always entertaining.

Argentineans Luna and Javier are logólogos. No logo-logos, but logólogos. They claim to be normal people and specialists in what they do, which can be mathematic for logos, or using other's creativity to be creative, or explaining that logos turn into logos with a little help of other logos.
They also claim to be specialists in phonetics.

Life goes on in Tehran

“Mission Statement: To show that regardless of what any president would have you imagine, despite what any media outlet would have you believe, life goes on in Tehran and elsewhere in Iran.”


A personal monthly photo blog by a former Los Angeles resident who recently moved to Tehran, using a camera phone and showing to the world that fear and lack of knowledge about Iran is nothing more but the result of negative Western media. He also shows that Iran, for the most part, it's a beautiful country with kind, loving and hospitable people.

Via Andrew Watson (looking forward to seeing you around!)

Luggage Labels

The Golden Age of Travel occurred between 1890 and the outbreak of World War II. In this period, hotels abounded and the various modes of transport reached their glorious apogee. The labels, which were placed on luggage by railroads, steamships or hotels as advertising, beautifully capture the spirit of the era as small reproductions with vivid colours.


Click here to find a varied set of luggage label’s images, and here to read very interesting info in what is probably the first blog devoted to the art of luggage labels.

Dear friend Guillermo has recently picked up the filthy blogging habit, and is doing great things with it by showcasing former Fabricanti work, great art, and fun shit. We'll be sure to steal from his site in the future.

I heart colours

There are so many things to fall in love with. You kind of take the everyday things for granted, like colour. You'd think, being a slave to United Colors, I'd know a thing or two about the subject. But I'm a colour idiot compared to the fine group at COLOURlovers. For example:


This palette titled, "Ineffective Suits" hits the nail right on the head. Make your own appropriately titled colour palette and then discuss your genious with colour freaks.

Learning to Love You More

One of my favorite web-site/art projects of all times is "Learning to Love You More," created by Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher.


From Assignment#39: Take a picture of your parents kissing. By David Harrison Levi.

Assignments are posted and the public is invited to accept and post their responses. All mediums are covered (music, illustration, design, writing, sculpture...) Some are simple. Some are complex. "Like a recipe, meditation practice, or familiar song, the prescriptive nature of these assignments is intended to guide people towards their own experience." The perfect solution to those boring Trevisian Sunday afternoons. And the perfect cure to your arts and crafts blues.

Be sure to get some done, as they're making a book from people's reports due out next Autumn.

Civilization is Doomed because...

"Maybe you're just not the creative type"

You thought we wouldn't notice is a blog about ripped off, copies, and essentially, originality of ideas.

Like how video artist Robin Rhode's piece "inspired" a Nike ad (Rhode was at the Italian pavillion at the Venice Biennale last year, if you went, you'd remember his style):


Nike ad:

One could register on the site and post as well, if you keep track of that kind of stuff.

War runs on the blogosphere

Reading the Italian newspaper Il Manifesto I 've found some interesting links to webblogs dealing with the current conflict in the Middle East. So why not share them?
The first to note is a lebanese blog kept by volunteers. This blog not only analyses the conflict but also broadcasts news covered by different sources from around the world. Worth mentioning is also Angry Arab "a source on poltics, war, Middle East, Arabic poetry and art" by As'ad AbuKhalil. It is a blog with a biting tone and many photos and features a very immediate style.
On the other side of the border there is a live blog from an Israeli bunker via laptop and wifi. It provides a unique insight into the rapidly escalating situation in the middle east and gives an idea of how everyday life is there.
There is also a blogger who was forced to leave his country because of the current genocide happening in Lebanon and as a refugee tries to keep contacts with relatives and friends also through a blog called Perpetual Refugee .It's a well written blog with a very incisive style.
There are also cases of foreign bloggers such as the Swedish student Hardig, who reported about the conflict from Beirut until 21st July when he was forced to leave Lebanon.
The most original idea is represented by the experimental blog http://www.notes.co.il/ which is a kind of universal blog originally created in Hebrew but written in 3 languages and open both to Arab and Israeli people. When the war broke out Corinna, one of the authors, filled her blog with black flags, placing adjacent to one another the national anthems of Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Israel. In conclusion, she added: "Jewish soul, Iranian, Lebanese, Syrian or Palestinian soul - until when will you be shrouded in darkness, a tool for realizing the supreme value: land."

The quotation is taken from an article from Haaretz about the reaction of Israeli webblogs on the war

My beating blog

My Beating Blog is an attempt to take the journaling aspect of blogging into a surrealistic future in which the author literally and metaphorically bares his heart. For three weeks, a series of posts contextualizing heart-rate visualizations, GPS-maps, and personal journal entries will give online users a rare entrance into personal medical-grade statistics, stalker-level location tracking, and the private thoughts of the blogger. Inevitably, issues regarding privacy, exhibitionism, and voyeurism playfully emerge as the blogosphere is infused with biofeedback and location technology. Rather than play into a dystopian or Orwellian future, blogs and biofeedback are given poetic license, reframing our awareness of our own and each others' beating hearts.

Virtual China

Serfing in Internet i've found an interesting blog: Virtual China.
This blog is an exploration of virtual experiences and environments in and about China. It is also the focus of the 2006 Asia Focus research program at the Institute for the Future, a small nonprofit technology forecasting group in Palo Alto, California.
