Obama'08 x Tom Sachs x Hello Kitty

The Obama campaign has turned out to be the Nike SB of 2008 with an unprecedented amount of new voters and equally as much new product. Yet with the November 4th elections just around the corner, we still do not know what will become of the good ole U.S of A especially after seeing the latest Howard Stern piece. For now, here’s another look into another Obama piece done by American contemporary artist Tom Sachs. The T-shirt features the Eiffel Tower, an OBAMA 08 print on the back and Hello Kitty which is certainly a favorite of Mr. Sachs. Yet another piece to add to the Obama collection, grab yours now at colette.

This Woman is STUPID (good)!! Chi-town Stand Up!!

Jenny Holzer, Chicago Exhibit

Jenny Holzer, prominent and diverse artist, opens at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art. More pics and info after the jump.

Jenny Holzer never signs her work. Her most prominent creations, glowing text-based installations fashioned over the last 30 years on everything from billboards and building façades to rock faces and crashing waves, are almost eerie in their anonymity, voices anchored more to their physical and social contexts than to any single, human personality.

Her truisms, deliberate clichés, and borrowed prose touch on subjects as disparate as consumer culture and torture, death, power, and love, and boldly feature on some of the world’s grandest stages - from a giant 1980s Times Square electronic billboard shouting ‘Protect Me From What I Want’, to the LED installation she created at the Reichstag, to poetry projected onto the side of the New York Public Library, and one of her latest projects, a stream of white-lit text scrolling across and illuminating the lobby of 7 World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan.

A new exhibition, opening on Saturday 25th at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Jenny Holzer: Protect Protect, examines the artist’s work since the 1990s across a breadth of media including futuristic LED installations, sculpture, light projections, and paintings based on declassified government documents. Even at its most urgent the tone is never aggressive, more a plea than an order. What emerges is a body of work that is at once beautiful, thought provoking, and strangely quiet.

AHAHAHA.... Skateboard P is my HERO!!!

Multi-faceted musician/entrepreneur Pharrell Williams teamed up with furniture designer Domeau & Pérès earlier in the year to create the critically acclaimed “Perspective” chairs.

As if being one of the world’s foremost music producers, trendsetting fashionistas, streetwear entrepreneurs, ladykillers, and Louis Vuitton designers wasn’t enough, the starmaking PHARRELL “SKATEBOARD P” WILLIAMS has now added high-end modern furniture design to his extensive resume with the official debut of his “Perspective” chairs at GALERIE EMMANUEL PERROTIN in Paris this week. A seat supported with the legs of both a man and a woman, the “Perspective” chair was created to resemble a street-level view of a couple in the midst of getting it on, is rendered in slick acrylic, and available in four colors with the choice of leather, incredibly un-PC veal skin, or velour leather for the seating material. Priced well out of reach of Pharrell’s loyal legion of young streetwear zombies (the chairs cost a wee bit more than the most expensive pair of Bapes), these pricey walkers are sure to be the furniture of choice for a new wave of rap videos to come.

BaseControl 2008 Fall/Winter Collection


Apple introduced their next generation notebooks earlier today in Cupertino. Although they didn’t implement Blu-Ray or drop a new platform under the $1,000 mark, Apple sure did upgrade some features lacking in the old MacBook. Kicking the old casing to the curb, the MacBook gets an aluminum shell with black glass display and keypad. Other features include: a fully click-able track pad, new Nvidia graphics card, 5 hours of stated battery life and an LED back-lite screen similar to the MacBook Pro. The price does hike up to 2.0GHz/160GB/2MB RAM/Superdrive version for $1299 and 2.4 GHz/250GB for $1599 but the older model now gets dropped down to $999.

I'd HATE to Snoooooze...

Apparently the laser alarm clock idea, where you stop your clock's incessant ringing by shooting a bullseye with a laser gun, was popular enough to warrant a second coming. Bandai will be releasing its new version, titled Gun O' Clock, on November 15th in Japan. Gun O'Clock lacks the little man from the original, but features two wake-up modes: Normal and Hard. Normal mode means you only have to hit the target once to put the clock on snooze. With Hard mode, you'll have to hit it five times. Is that frustrating or secret agent awesome? I can't really tell.
