Processes that produce shapes are a central theme of Christoph Bader’s work: “To me this is a switch from a product oriented thinking to a process oriented way of working. This if often called generative or procedural design. In generative design you as a designer are no longer manly concerned about the outcome or the final product rather you are focused on the process which generates the final result. Designing processes is the business of a generative designer. These processes generate theoretically infinitely many outcomes and as such can be a valuable tool.”

Eliza Bennett - A woman’s work is never done, 2011Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’.

This particular pieces by Andrea Farina have a strange mix of disturbing and beauty, which was what really what captured me when I saw them for the first time. I think it has to do with the fact they’re stitched, which I think makes a great case of the importance of medium.

This creepy iPhone case forces you to interact with Siri. This case covers the smartphone’s screen, revealing only the home button. That way, Siri leaves you no choice but to interact with her. It’s on sale for $90. (Source)
