Episode 13: Unafraid of the Dark, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey


Go watch the new “Cosmos”. Also, watch the original “Cosmos”. Some of the facts Dr. Sagan reported have been refuted in the decades since he made it.

That’s science, after all.

The future of wearable technologies

Technology has been always crucial to the development of fashion, but as technology improves and advances, it is being more and more closely integrated into our clothing.

Wearable technologies currently exist in two spaces - as conceptual pieces by artisan designers, and as engineering driven wearable products that are taken to market. But, as Danielle Wilde explains, the future for wearable technologies lies in creating products with expressive aesthetic qualities that can be taken to market.

Danielle Wilde is a visiting research Fellow, Centre for Smart Materials and Performance Textiles at RMIT University.

Studio Markunpoika turns hundreds of pencils into vases

Amalgamated, 2014

Pencils are utilized when giving form to our thoughts, illustrating our wishes and ideas. They are inseparably fused with craft and arts, representing diverse relationships between artist and their creations. Pencils are extensions of our minds which enable us to transmit information through different mediums and time, collecting knowledge and creating it.

“Amalgamated” is a collection which explores the relationship of a mass produced ‘tool’ and its individual purpose. The beauty of the pencil as an object seems to go unnoticed if utilised only for their primary purpose. “Amalgamated” is a visual and tactile investigation by using pencils as a raw material. This holistic principle has been the fundament for creating this set of vases; let the pencils become a thing themselves.

The vases are created by individually gluing one facet of a pencil to another, taking benefit of their hexagonal shape forming a network of pencils. The block of pencils is machined with a lathe and turned into the final shape. The flow of each shape unveils a different pattern of the inner structure revealing the beauty of the pencil.

The vases are a limited edition and come in three different shapes: 30 cm and 45 cm tall with different color options.

30 cm edition of 30
45 cm edition of 18

Available exclusively through Gallery FUMI.

In collaboration with Gallery FUMI and Faber-Castell.
