Dodo Lab’s Prototype Series Turns Unwanted Furniture Into Modern Interior Treasures

Comments Off on Dodo Lab’s Prototype Series Turns Unwanted Furniture Into Modern Interior Treasures

Dodo Lab is a research project set up by Michaela Robinson and Karen Smart that experiments with different ways of regenerating old and unwanted pieces of furniture anew. In a series they dub simply as “Prototype”, each piece comes with a QR (Quick Response) Code that unites the Prototype’s past and present. By scanning the barcode with a smartphone, information about its former life is unlocked, adding a unique human history to the once neglected object, making it valuable and special once more. The Prototypes can only be bought by swapping services or by doing a good deed, much like designers helping each other within their working environment, therefore the only currency used is the swap or deed itself. Each prototype also comes with a product tag that has instructions on the back explaining how the new owner can contribute to its ongoing narrative by generating a QR Code of their own. + Dodo Lab The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on How Not to Talk About Climate Politics

Photo via CO2 Post Yesterday, I wondered aloud whether there was any way to steer the general conversation about climate change away from the realm of political ideology — and the overwhelming response in the comments section left me even more bewildered than before. If anything, the response revealed that there is much work left to do to bring an even-keeled discussion about the science of climate change and potential so… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on White House Accused of Withholding Key Info on BP Spill

There’s been a well-documented gray area surrounding the cooperative operations of BP and federal governmental agencies in the response to the Gulf spill. Questions were raised about press access, for instance, as the government seemed to be abetting BP in restricting media access to sensitive or potentially embarrassing spill-impacted sites.

Comments Off on Neozoon Turns Discarded Fur Coats Into Guerilla Street Art

Photo: Neozoon Hear Me Roar! Art has always been used to make people think about a variety of issues, from un-subtle propaganda posters to great literary novels that make us see the world through the eyes of people very different from us. Somewhere in between those extremes lies Neozoon, a European collective of street artists that has decided to use discarded fur coats to make a point about how we related to and treat animals. See below for many more photos of their very cool “fur graffitis”…
