App of the day

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.

Too much night again

Los Angeles-based artist Pae White merges art, design, craft and architecture through site specific installations and individual works which defy our expectations of a variety of techniques and media. For her South London Gallery exhibition she creates a mesmerising installation in which vast quantities of coloured yarn span and criss-cross the room to create supergraphics spelling out words that can only be deciphered by navigating the space. Inspired by a period of insomnia and consequent reflection on the transience of our existence, the letters and words emerge and dissolve depending on both our physical relationship to them and the relative weight of the overall aesthetic experience.
