According to the World Health Organisation, 372,000 people drown each year. Kingii wristband claims to be the world’s smallest inflatable and its mission is to reduce that number. The device contains an inflatable nylon balloon that’s kept inside a small pocket next to a carbon dioxide cartridge. Its users can inflate Kingii in less than 1 second by pulling a metal lever which triggers the CO2 cylinder and fills the balloon. The wristband is suitable for swimming, surfing, kayaking, sailing, and fishing. Kingii is up to 78 times smaller than a life jacket and aims to be just as reliable. The device is reusable (used CO2 cartridges can be replaced with new ones), and is available on Amazon for $ 69.99.

Learning Life Lessons by Faking One’s Own Funeral (14 photos)

in Photo Nerd by

While South Korea’s economy has experienced strong growth in recent decades, another troubling statistic has grown as well. For years now, South Korea has had the second-highest rate of suicide in the world. Public and private programs have been developed to address the problem, and one getting notice lately is called “Happy Dying.” The program, led by Mr. Kim Ki-ho brings participants together to reflect on their lives by experiencing their own fake funeral. They write their own eulogies, make out mock wills, and pen farewell notes. Then, they dress in traditional burial linens, climb into coffins in a darkened room, and meditate on their lives for 30 minutes. Responses vary, but many said that acting out their own deaths made them appreciate their lives more, and to consider the consequences of their deaths more seriously.

Illustrator Perfectly Captures The Beauty Of Single Life

in Design Nerd by

Mexico-based artist Idalia Candelas draws women who are content to be alone. Using pencil, ink, and watercolor, “Postmodern Loneliness” is a series that celebrates being single. Candelas says she was inspired by her time living alone in Mexico City.

“The theme of the loneliness has been recurring in my drawings,” Candelas told Mic. “I like to show women who exist in solitude but do not suffer. They are not depressed or crying. Rather [they] are safe, exalting in the sense of enjoying the company of just herself.”

I Give A Second Life To Dead Trees By Fusing Them With Picture Frames

in Design Nerd by

I enjoy creating art that unites humble, as well as involved, objects, into a kind of their own — creating art that is distinctive and intricate, yet in its truest sense, uncomplicated. As much as I embrace convention in art, and I certainly do, my Fusion Frame art fulfills the part of me that says “no” to convention. That it is not only okay to be avant-garde, it is right. I like to embrace alternatives to an accepted order in art. To even, at times, completely ignore conventions when fashioning a piece and enjoy the unbounded ability to create by refusing to be limited by precept, artistically speaking.

Seeking out a unique frame and then spending a day in the Central Oregon forest searching for a just right piece of tree branch to blend with the frame is gratifying in and of itself. Then, each project involves woodworking, painting, and a bit of sculpting. Dedicating the hours of time fashioning a frame that merges a man-made as well as natural element into a single piece of art that captures so much imagination, is rewarding. Tailoring a frame with a special, sentimental object for someone is even more rewarding — it captures so much life!

The main components of my Fusion Frames are a reclaimed tree branch or root and a wood frame. I have always appreciated old, dead trees – more so the branches. The more personality the better. I am thrilled to have found a way to use them in my work. I use many different woods. Central Oregon Manzanita and Pine, Juniper, Aspen, Willamette Valley Filbert and California Grapevine are a few of my favorites. I have also always been drawn to frames, especially antique frames. Using frames of all types and spanning well over one 150 years make the Fusion Frames that much more interesting. The solid construction, weathered patinas and unique details exhibit such character and history. If only they could actually speak of the stories they have witnessed over the years. My goal is to bring together each’s attitude and personality and reflect it as one. Other components are paints, stains, bonding & sculpting agents, and hardware. If used, leather, iron, brass, bronze and glass all retain the personality of their heritage.

More info: fusionframesnw.com | Etsy | Facebook

The first step in creating a Fusion Frame involves searching for and acquiring a frame or tree branch that strikes me as extraordinary. I appreciate items that evidence unique embellishments and scars – items that reveal their history, even if in the most discreet fashion.

When I find a frame or branch, I typically instantly recognize how I want to employ it in one of my artworks. Therefore, the next step is to seek out its counterpart. I am looking for counterparts that “talk to one another.” Once I find a frame and tree branch that pair flawlessly together, there is component preparation.

A tree branch reclaimed from the wilderness requires washing, organic disinfecting and drying before it is ready for use. At times, a frame will as well, if it has been stowed inadequately over the years.

Finally, each project entails design, woodworking, sculpting and painting.

A project dictates the degree and type of woodworking, sculpting, painting and finishing techniques required. All of this necessitates a lot of vision, commitment and patience, which makes it that much more rewarding.

The blending of these fundamentals creates a distinct piece of art. It is meaningful and different. When finished, each one exhibits many individual characteristics, but in a singular, harmonized style.

Each Fusion Frame shows the individual history of every part as well as their combined story as one. Each is a chronicle, complete with scars and adornment.

Ink Mapping Brings Tattoos To Life Right On Human Skin

in Design Nerd by

Oskar & Gaspar, a collective of visual artists from Portugal, can make your tattoos move quite literally. Using video mapping technique, they map a tattoo on a person and bring it to life with a customized animation. The project is called “Ink Mapping” and was presented during a live tattoo mapping event held in Lisbon, 2015.

“We wanted to continue exploring the human body and we’re big fans of tattoos,” said Guillaume Alatak, project manager for Oskar & Gaspar. “It’s an expensive experience. It took about one year to find people to help fund the concept and finally a few months ago we found someone.”

“The visual impact from what you can see from the video is really amazing,” added Alatak. “It looks real, like the demon is coming from the inside of the girl. But the live impact is stronger.”

Bonsai Skulls Bring The Dead To Life

in Design Nerd by

Grave Yard Bonsai Mountain Skulls are a unique take on “Memento mori” art. “Remember that you can die” in latin, this art aims to remind us of our own mortality, so it’s fitting that these handmade trophies are “cast in PVC plastic and…moulded off a real human skull.” Made by Australian company Jack Of The Dust, these 850 gram, 13x16x22cm skulls be a part of your home for just $ 399 AUS.

“Jack of the Dust” is an obsolete United States Navy occupational designation. Despite sounding ominous, it was used for the ship’s steward, and “referr[ed] to the dusty atmosphere created by issuing quantities of flour and dried biscuit.” The term is still occasionally used today for a ship’s culinary specialist in charge of the canned goods storeroom.

People From Classic Paintings Inserted Into Modern City Life (Part 2)

in Design Nerd by

Alexey Kondakov, the Ukrainian artist whom we covered before, is back with new images of figures from classical paintings photoshopped into modern locations. The ongoing series, titled The Daily Life Of Gods, features images such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s Nymphs and Satyr, or Cesar van Everdingen’s Bacchus.

In fact, the paintings of Cesar van Everdingen are what first inspired Kondakov to start creating. “I realized that the heroes of these masterpieces were simply looking to spend quality time [together], like us,” reports Modern Met. Many of the pieces are set in Kiev; if you’re from Kiev, do you recognize any?

I Capture Miniature People Dealing With Everyday Life Objects

in Design Nerd by

I’m a Thai designer named Poy. Photography is my passion – I’ve been doing that for several years and in a number of styles. Since last year, my inspiration came from one of The Japanese animation named “Arrietty” by Studio Ghibli. It was a story about miniature people that lived with humans all the time, but they haven’t even been noticed. This sparked my idea.

Actually, this kind of style is not something new. There are lots of famous photographers who have been taking photos of these little guys so I try to differentiate my work by playing with objects, tools, fruits, etc. Highlight on a surrealistic idea that is built around imagination.

Hope you guys enjoy my work.
