Designer Tobias Van Schneider has created the most honest & human weather app out there. The app tells you whether it’s “cold as fuck” or just “damn chilly” outside, and will let you know if there are “clear fucking skies” or if “it’s fucking raining right now”. It is currently only available for Blackberry users, but the designer has submitted it to Apple’s iTunes App Store for Approval.
Nancy Fouts seeks out varied objects that she marries poetically, leaving the interpretation of their meaning open to the mind of their viewers. The themes of nature and religion frequently recur and overlap in the artist’s work as mediums to make us see things afresh. The overarching theme is freedom of thought; Fouts makes art inspired by the naïveté of childhood and by doing so she imagines each of her subjects without preconceptions.
American born Fouts yet has lived and worked in London for the past 40 years, first graduating from the Chelsea College of Art and then the RCA. In the 1960’s the artist went on to co-found the Shirt Sleeve Studio and later set up the artist-run gallery Fouts and Fowler.
