Back in 1985, Apple patented this phone design, which is pretty hard to believe considering their incomparably sleek and functional product line today. The shape of an apple just seems inconvenient, especially that stem, but then again this was also the year that Apple finally discontinued the Lisa aka the Macintosh XL...

As you may know, The xx are set to release a new album, Coexist, due out September 11, and as that date has been approaching, the trio is releasing some very abstract video treatments.

It was all about the 3D paintings. For the 2012 Magic Art exhibition in Hangzhou, which lies in the Eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, visitors were entertained to the tune of interacting with 3D paintings, literally getting to exist within a painting itself. According to the International Business Times, the Chinese outsourced the work to "15 South Korean artists, exclusively for the Hangzhou's Magic Art Special Exhibition, over a period of four months."

As we have stated on this site time and time again, the state of music videos, since the advent of this thing called the Internet, is in a quite strong place. Enter this fantastic new video by Ian Cheng for the band Liars (whose new album, WIXIW, is really quite good) and their new single, "Brats." An Elmer Fudd character, a Donnie Darko killer bunny rabbit, and an intense thunder dance beat make this a good wake-up call for your afternoon.

Dutch artist Imme van der Haak is behind the project, Beyond the Body, where "photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities." The results are a bit jarring, intriguing, especially in the video, where the dancing actors with the silk over their bodies confuses your perception of identity and, in our most honest assesment, the age of the performer.

There are endless possibilities in the universe of collage art, and we really like what Debra Hampton has done with this series of works. Combining ??magazine cut outs, watercolor, and ink on panel, Hampton reimagines, arranges, and removes most identifiable elements of the model or person she is borrowing from and turns it into a surreal firestorm.
