    Waves of Grain, time-lapse video of wood being planed down

    Gear  |  Video
    Images by Keith Skretch
    Sound by Ennio Morricone, "The Big Gundown"
    To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.

    Instagram user Mirrorsme creates these whimsical drawings on her bathroom mirror. She writes,
    "I bought my last markers in New York, and the sales person just couldn’t understand why I needed all those acrylic markers to draw on mirrors. Later that night, I drew Brooklyn Bridge on my hotel room mirror in Midtown (it was a nice hotel too, with a huuuge mirror… but I decided to remove the mirror art before I left)...Normally, it takes less than 30 min. to draw, but I can really get lost in the process and enjoy it."

    These are transforming tea bags. "Transforming tea - chamomile tea bags with stressing symbols turn into calm ones once the tea is dissolved." They were created by ad agency M&C Saatchi for tea company BOH, who was hoping to convey their chamomile tea has a calming effect. For example, a fiery flames transforms into a calm one when the bag is submerged in water. A violent bear turns into a smiling one, while a thundercloud turns into a mere cloud once it goes into the cup.

    Gear  |  Projects
    A view of artist Alfredo Barsuglia's "Social Pool," which he installed in a patch of road-less desert in the middle of the Mojave, Southern California. The swimming pool located somewhere in the southern Mojave Desert between Joshua Tree and Apple Valley. The public is allowed to use the pool, but in order to do so visitors need the key that unlocks it (it is kept covered) as well as the GPS coordinates. Only once you have the key, which is kept at the MAK Center, are you given the coordinates.
    "It's really hard to find," says Barsuglia. "There is no road. There is no fence. There is no sign. There is no trail. You just come on it. I'm sure some people won't find it."
    The visiting season is May 1 through September 30, seven days a week. The GPS coordinates of Social Pool as well as the key to open its mobile cover are provided by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood. Please call or pass by the MAK Center on the day you want to visit Social Pool and check if the key is available. No reservation possible.
