We’re thrilled to be on for the third time today featuring our ‘Bloom’ design, which mixes some of our favorite things: vintage botanical illustrations, skulls, and moons. And neon green, which is as surprising of a development to us as it is to you. Dsktps is a great resource for high quality mobile and […]

Early Movements

Dangerous Minds posted some of these earlier which sent us down the rabbit hole of the Phenakistoscope, Thaumatrope, and other forms of early movement and animation (one of our favorites is Eadweard Muybridge, whose work we’ve used in our video projections before). Since DM already did such a good job explaining, we’ll just quote them here: “Phenakistoscope” […]

I just want to be, Wherever you are

So it probably goes without saying that I almost had a heart attack when I saw the above image, and of course […]

Recspec ♥s Space

Wow, the Universe really is a strange and stunningly beautiful place. Via APOD (Astronomy Picture of The Day), here’s a recent video of some Aurora Borealis near the border of Norway and Russia. The Aurora from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo. And in the header image, more Aurora Borealis images from APOD (source, click to view […]

You can view photos from our trip here.   Hotel: Miyako Inn Neighborhood: Little Tokyo Ramen: Daikokuya Bento lunch: East […]
