GOOD FOLK #19: ALEX CORNELL ///

-NAME Alex Cornell -WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am from Bethesda, Maryland. I usually say Washington DC because most people don’t know what Maryland is. I live in San Francisco now, having switched coasts, much to the dismay of my family.  -WHAT DOES YOUR WORK CONSIST OF? My work is divided into music and design....

FOOD FLAGS ///

This is pretty old, but I still love it. “An advertising agency has come up with a campaign to promote the Sydney International Food Festival: flags made from food typical of each country. The flag of Italy is made of basil, pasta and tomatoes.”

HOLIDAYING HORRORS ///

The only thing I can say about these images is that you need to see them for yourself. Amazing stuff…that’s all I got. Some people just like to have fun.

CANDY CHANG ///

“Candy Chang is a designer, urban planner and artist in Helsinki. She likes to make the city more accessible and engaging through research, design, and the creative use of public space.” There are some really interesting projects over at her site that cross disciplines between community awareness/advocacy, technology, urban planning and design/art.
