A warm welcome to our 45th Tuesday Trifle; the weekly dose of inspiration and variety.
Those of you who’ve followed our trifles for a while will know that I’m partial to a bit of street art, be it painting or stenciling, sticker-bombing or eye-bombing – if it decorates the urban landscape and is in any way attractive, chances are I’ll like it. Well, you probably also know that I love my Lego.
So… how could I not love this collection of Lego Street Art?!
I don’t explore photography as much as I’d like to, but sometimes an image comes along that makes me want to pick up a camera and start experimenting.
I came across this photo taken by Greek photographer Chris Kotsiopoulos. Hundreds of images were taken over 30 hours in Sounio, Greece then digitially stitched together to create this stunning photo. (Be sure to click the photo on the right to see a larger version)
Oh IKEA, the marvel that is a big blue warehouse that sends you on a journey of increasing love of furniture and food – unless you have kids, then I can imagine it being a challenge to go around.
Anyway, IKEA do know good design, but admittedly this one ‘had me’ a bit – IKEA marching into the world of TV tech. But they wanted to do something that’s probably not been done in TV for a while – they actually wanted to tackle a problem. The problem evolves around space, mess and ease of use and I think they’ve performed this GCSE D&T project brief quite well (and no, I’m not being patronising!). They’ve brought your TV, sound system (wireless) and furniture together in the best traditions of IKEA. I also like their accompanying ad as well. There’s no pretence with cats flying around in slow-mo – it’s all just personality:
