Passion rebuilds the world for the youth. It makes all things alive and significant.

Balanced Rock Sculptures

Ballroom

American artist Patrick Dougherty has combined his love for carpentry and nature by weaving together a “ballroom” structure using willow tree saplings. It took Dougherty three weeks to weave 10 tons of tree saplings into formation, using only gloves and a pair of pruning shears. The structure was created with entrances—allowing members of the public to engage with the structure. 

Omg its Patrick Dougherty! He did a sculpture on my campus!

“Pretentious” is one of those adolescent words that decodes as “your act of ambition makes me uncomfortable.”

Campfire Cologne by antler & co

“Campfire Cologne is the Tried and True scent of your best summer ever. A nostalgic ode to cooking over the fire, secret swimming holes and the unending days of youth. Use it frequently, transport yourself, live the dream.”

This made me laugh, the back of pack copy is hilarious! Nice design to go with the clever words too, love the way they have photographed it in the picture at the top.

There is also a well designed website for it; http://campfire-cologne.com/ , and this hilarious promotional video; http://vimeo.com/fortripper/campfirecologne

This is seriously the coolest present ever! They come in dopamine, oxytocin, etc. and earrings and necklaces as well. I liked this one for the special guy in your life because it shows you care without being something most people would get. Like a cute secret.

Love this! Prototype packaging for Brasseurs du Monde for the Ice Porter, an original beer brewed in Quebec during the winter.

“Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.”

—   Brian Eno, A Year With Swollen Appendices, 1996. I saw part of this quotation and thought “that’s fantastic”; some judicious googling turned up both the source (hat tip to here) and more of the original thought.  (via imathers)
