Bjorg 2010 Jewelry Collection

Norwegian jewelry label Bjorg was launched in 2004 on the basis of creating items which embodied a distinct aesthetic; Embracing the beauty of imperfection but also maintaining an approach to jewelry design that held certain emotions and connotations. In the brand’s 2010 collection, they team-up with fellow Norwegians in filmmakers Matias and Mathis to create a short movie which explores the symbolism of a relationship and jewelry. The 2010 collection is themed after pioneering evolutionist Charles Darwin and where we’re going relative to the past, present and future.


Photography’s Longest Exposure

Six months. That’s right. This dream-like picture shows each phase of the sun over Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge taken during half a year.

The image was captured on a pin-hole camera made from an empty drinks can with a 0.25mm aperture and a single sheet of photographic paper.

Photographer Justin Quinnell strapped the camera to a telephone pole overlooking the Gorge, where it was left between December 19, 2007 and June 21, 2008–the Winter and Summer solstices. (That’s a 15,552,000 second exposure.)
‘Solargraph’ shows six months of the sun’s luminescent trails and its subtle change of course caused by the earth’s movement in orbit. The lowest arc being the first day of exposure on the Winter solstice, while the top curves were captured mid-Summer.

(Dotted lines of light are the result of overcast days when the sun struggled to penetrate the cloud.)

Quinnell, a renowned pin-hole camera artist, says the photograph took on a personal resonance after his father passed away on April 13–halfway through the exposure. He says the picture allows him to pinpoint the exact location of the sun in the sky at the moment of his father passing.


#13 – Tikal, Guatemala

The ancient Mayan city of Tikal, located in present-day Guatemala, has structures that date as far back as 400 BCE, though most of the structures were built in the Late Classic Period (600 – 900 CE). One of the largest urban centers of the pre-Colombian Mayan civilization, the city was at its peak at around 700 CE. Tikal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the ruins include five large pyramid temples, a large palace, small pyramids, tombs, and numerous other buildings with a grand total of 3,000 structures. The University of Pennsylvania and the government of Guatemala have contributed to the restorations done on the site in recent years. Travelers can find a variety of accommodations in the nearby cities of Flores and Guatemala City. Fans of the original Star Wars films may know Tikal as the “Massassi Outpost on the fourth moon of Yavin” from Episode IV: A New Hope.

Heike Weber Installations

Utterly amazing installations by Heike Weber. She draws with permanentmarkers on acrylic floor and walls – surfaces that have reached up to 600 m2.

These are so rad, Don’t think I could handle a whole house like this, but one room with a very minimalist furniture arrangement would be rad


Innovative Apartment in Hong Kong

This is the sickest apartment I have ever scene. If I had mad skills like this dude, I’d find the cheapest/smallest apartment ever and live like him.

Gary Chang, a talented architect from Hong Kong, has equipped his tiny 330 square foot apartment with a sliding wall system that allows him to create 24 different room configurations.
