What Makes a Book Tick…

October 20, 2008

I found a blog post about stunning sculptures created from used books. These amazing creations are called by some “book dissections” or “book autopsies”. I tend to not see them as being something so grim! Click here to see more about “The Bittersweet Art of Cutting Up Books.”

Nerdbots

October 2, 2008

I came across a great website called Nerdbots.

Description from the website: “Oddly obsessed with all things robot, married couple Nicholas and Angela from Kansas City, Missouri, decided on a whim one day to do nothing other than to build one themselves.

After piecing together parts found at their favorite antique and thrift stores, they created their first robot friend. Since that first day, Nicholas and Angela have added many fabulously geeky robots to their beloved robotic collection.”

What a concept… taking something considered to be junk, mixing it together, and restoring into something creative, fun and valuable. This is what we should be doing in our communities… and in our lives.
