For Nostalgic Gamers: Starcraft is Now Completely Free

My friends and I have actually been playing Warcraft II lately. I don’t mean World of Warcraft (I’ve never played any of those game), I’m talking about the classic one from like 1996! Shout out to our buddy Steve who figured out how to make it work on our computers. Anyways, we were joking about how we should try Starcraft next (most of us have never played it) and lo and behold Blizzard has just announced you can now download the original Starcraft game and the expansion for free! (Thanks Kotaku) If there’s a way to play online, I challenge any of you to a game.

Get it here. (mac/pc)

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”.

Have a look at more images below.
