New to me....

Just wanted to share a few amazing things I've found, on the internet, or in the real world, in just the past few days. Just because they're new to me I am obsessed with them.

Dean Lucker is a MN-based artist, who created a very funky coin operated kinetic sculpture at the Como Zoo. His studio partner, Ann Wood, (not to be confused with this Ann Wood) creates amazing works of collage too. Their studio is mere steps away from my old apartment, I wish I would have known about them when I lived there!

New baby emperor tamarins, also at the Como Zoo! My photos were teh suck so here's one from the Zooborns.com website.

Thru-You is a website where an Israeli DJ named Kutiman remixed dozens of clips from You Tube into new songs/videos. I can, and have, listened to this all day.

Juxtapoz magazine. Capturing urban art, the melding of toys and art, and the new faces of the scene. I've thumbed thru it before, but just recently have taken to reading it in full.

In other news....going back up to Hugo for a few days while my folks are off to an east coast wedding. I am looking forward to sleeping in my own (temporary) bed, and having my fully stocked studio space to work in. While it's POSSIBLE to sew and work here, I always find myself thinking "I wish I had ___" and of course, what I want is up in Hugo. I have a class on Felt Animal Making on Tuesday at Truly, but no one has signed up for it yet so I don't know if it's a go or not.
