i believe you have my stapler

i thought staples where just for holding bits of paper together, how wrong could i be…
check these guys out. three different artists with three very different imaginative ways of using the everyday staple.
first we have rob obrien a designer with a passion for staples, with two pieces of work, “linda” a protrait, and “drop”, a ripple in liquid piece created using 190,560 staples.
more can be found at his flickr page
second we have french artist baptiste debombourg and his piece of work “aggravure”, created using 35,000 staples and taking around 75 hours to complete this masterpiece is a monster
and last we have peter root with his amazing free standing city scape of staple towers known as “low rise”, i wouldnt have wanted to be the guy that nudged the base.
all it takes is a different way of looking at things

living in a blob


if this is the new mobile living space then i might be interested

this is blob vb3 from belgian architecture firm dvma, completed in 2009, it took 18 months to complete and is pretty much the coolest looking caravan i have ever seen. contructed mainly from polyester it comes complete with bathroom, kitchen, light, sleeping area and a shitload of storage space. almost completely self sufficient living environment, as long as there is a plug socket within reach although i guess you dont need electricity to scare the crap out of confused onlookers.
looking more like a ship from mork and mindy than a mobile home, the nose of the blob opens up to create a porch and i would love to see the caravaners faces when they wake up one morning to find this thing next to them. an addition of a window wouldnt have gone a miss but that might take away from the overall aesthetic of the thing. throw some flashing lights and a dry ice machine into this thing and im sold.
