Richard Clarkson | Cloud

July 2, 2014

cloud-1

cloud-3

 

This amazing smart artpiece by Richard Clarkson can bring you the swiltry thick air, the anticipation and the relief of a summers first thunderstorm into your home.
Also you can stream your music via bluetooth, and through a motionsensor the cloud reacts to movement.

On the inside it is arduinobased with a suspended speaker unit, held together with a sponged that is  felted by hypoallergenic fiberfill.
For the felting a special device was created to accomplish the sheepish fluffly look, says Clarkson on his website.

With his pieces Clarkson achieves to create a bridge between physical computing, design and user friendlyness.

 

You can purchase a full functioning cloud with semi-immersive lightning, speaker with visual feedback or i.e. a nightlight/speaker hybrid for 3,360 USD
There are also cheaper versions for the smaller designlover pocket available.
And for future hybrid designer clarkson made his Code available online here. I would like to build one myself.

 

What a nice, talented guy.

Insta-Up for May’14

May 28, 2014

instaupmay

 

 

It is Instagram Update/lookatwhatIlookat time!

 

 

Number One! Reynolds!

Number Two! on my fav-list is always bows, bows bows. Cute ones, elegant ones. But as you maybe know, in my preferences, I need some kind of edge. So I found this really cute and trashy purse to replace my old one that I lost (or got stolen. Don’t ask) It is from Claire’s, about 20€ and its not the biggest but really okay. The outside is shiny plastic, aswell as the turquoise bow on top of it. The heart and the u-shaped acessoire is made of metal, dangly and ver 90ies.

Number Three! a Picture that embelleshes the walls of our university. Anyways, dont tell me what to do.

Number Four! A Clutch i found in a little store in Salzburg. It does indeed look like the Ghetto Blaster that i have in my Kitchen. I found it in my Granny’s House. Probably from the eighties and still working! Anyways, the Clutch I did not buy…  But I will probably come back for it!!

Number Five! My new HÜSK Gang Backpack that I got for my 23rd Birthday, 2 Weeks ago. Of course from krasserstoff.com

Number Six!  White Nailpolish! I know: Boo, who could have foreseen that in the springseason pastels and whites will be big. But I do feel really fancy and I like it even more on my toenails with a matching ankle chain.

 As always, thanks for stopping by and see you around! <3

Austro Pop Sexyness: Bilderbuch

March 18, 2014

“In der deutschsprachigen Musik gibt es zu wenig Sex!”, sagt Sänger Maurice und da hat er wohl Recht.

Sequenz 01_6

Mit heißen Beats, einer kühlen Stimme und tanzmoves wie ein junger Prince ist es wohl eher wenig schwer zu erraten dass Bilderbuch mich total überzeugen. Schweig still mein Herz, was willst du mehr?

Nach den düsteren, eher psychedelischeren Klängen von die Pest in Piemont werden die Klangfarben der aktuellen EP schriller, hiper und tanzbarer.

Auch Video technisch sind sie sehr großes Kino, im Gegensatz zu den ekstatischen Bewegungen auf der Bühne wird hier eher auf Minimalismus und Ironie gesetzt.
Im Video zu Maschin ist die weibliche Protagonistin die besungen wird ein knallgelber Lamborghini (Abc Lg 51 H Autofach-chinesisch etc.) der von Sänger Maurice liebevoll liebkost wird und an der ein oder anderen Stelle könnte ich schwören es wird subtile Liebe gemacht. Was natürlich sehr witzig ist für jene Popkulturbeobachter die Autos normalerweise als Penisverlängerung und Protzobjekt wahrnehmen und im Zuge dessen die Karren wenig oder keine  Beachtung schenken.

 

All dem Automobil zum trotz strotzt der ganze Song vor subtiler Sexappeal ohne zu schmachten oder plump zu sein. 100 Punkte.

Sequenz 05_1

Im Song Feinste Seide auf der gleichnamigen EP geht es ebenfalls heiß zu. Obwohl die Texte wie gewohnt sehr kryptisch sind erzeugen sie eine irre  Stimmung.

“Ich bin wieder da, an der Bar, gestochen scharf, deine Wahl. Ein Rebell, Rebell, Rebell wie ein Hund auf der Jagd. Wuff.”

so wird eingeleitet, aber das Herz der Frau B. wurde gewonnen mit:

“Heiße Luft so flüssig wie Kristall
ich lese Bruns, Camus und Derrida
mein Schwanz so lang wie ein Aal
deine Mutter so dick wie ein- “

maschin6

Was in meiner Interpretation so viel heißt wie “Ich bin sehr gebildet, lese gerne arge Autoren und Philosophen, höre dabei aber doch manchmal Hip Hop und bin vorzüglich zum Geschlechtsverkehr zu gebrauchen.”

Und natürlich schwingt sich das oberösterreichische Tanzbein noch leichter wenn es von oberösterreichischer Musik begleitet wird.

300 Punkte für Bilderbuch. Mit vorfreude aufs nächste Konzert in der Nähe verbleibe ich,

2 years and still very high

March 9, 2014

anniversarybird_kl

So, how do I start this? For me it has been a troublesome road the last two years. I am still struggeling to find my voice as a writer. To find my stil as an artist and a little space in this universe that feels save and comfortable for me. But I am really happy I have this little space right now, where I can share.

Even tough I know I have little people that fly with danube high on a very regular base, I can say I am happy with everbody that finds time to look at my work, think about my thoughts or just enjoy pretty pictures and fashion as much as I do. It makes me greatful to have the ability to share and recieve so much stuff “only” through a pixelated rectangle, so to say.
One reason for following a blog  may be a unconcious urge for voyeurism.   I would like to  see it in a more positive way. Maybe as a yearn for a easy closeness , that we might not always expirience on a daily basis in the real world.
I have a great time seeing other people grow and evolve through this medium. Everbody can take away from it what he/she wants,  bring it out in the world like a seed and share it, make it grow.
So on my second anniversary I would like to thank everybody who puts effort and time into a blog, for inspiring, creating, exploring and making the world a little bit more beautifull.

Maybe you can hop on board and fly a little with me this year.
Thanks a lot for everything.

Love!
