Current Obsession – TED Talks

A friend recently turned me on to TED Talks. If you are not already familiar with Ted, it is a non-profit organization formed in 1984. T(echnology) E(ntertainment) D(design) brings together some the in most intuitive minds for an annual conference to discuss  “ideas worth spreading”. Each presentation is under 20 minutes and is available online to view or in podcasts. If you need some inspiration, I suggest you try it out.

A few days ago, I listened to Sir Ken Robinson from a talk in 2007 discussing how schools are killing our children’s creativity. I thought it was a great talk and plan on listening to it again. Take a listen.

I am not clear on who is making these but the concept is great and I would love to learn more about the process of laminating newpaper to be sewn.

Yarn Bomb! – Groenplaats, Antwerp

I love coming across something that has been yarn bombed. This past weekend I was in Groenplaats, one of the main squares in Antwerp, Belgium, when I noticed that a few of the structures had been yarn bombed. I should really say, plastic bag bombed. Love it!
