Nostalgia of the Day: The Last Audio Cassette Factory

Bloomberg3

In the late 90s everyone was getting out of the audio cassette game. Everyone, that is, except for The National Audio Company. “Too stubborn to quit,” the Spingfield, MO-based manufacturer is now the last remaining source for audio cassettes in the country. And thanks to the growing retro movement, they’re producing more cassettes than ever before!

Check out the video below! Besides sharing a great story, the short video has a great how-it’s-made vibe, reminiscent of old school Sesame Street. Enjoy!

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.
