Marianne Bailey

Marianne Bailey’s absolutely incredible design work for Yahama Design Lab’s Box to Play. Watch the video here, to get the full effect.

That’s not all – Bailey has also been working on a series of cell phones that double as musical instruments! There is a phone that changes your singing voice into a trumpet, as well as a phone that splits in half and can be used like drum sticks, waving them in the air produces the sounds!

Head over here and click on the video to see what I’m talking about. I love these photos from her blog as well. Bailey is an all around insanely creative person.

“Cannot Take Photo” by Artist Taylor Holland

Eating a Book

 

You may remember American artist Taylor Holland from his brilliantly absurd “FRA[MES]” project we featured a few years back (click here for previous posts). A father now, Holland’s latest project chronicles his failed attempts to document his son’s first year of life.

Due to an iPhone frequently lacking memory, rather than a series of clearly recorded moments, what Holland has instead is a collection of blurry approximations of the photos that would have been. See more bittersweet out-of-storage notifications from “Cannot Take Photo” below!
