Bin Bag Bear

Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay from Raw-Edges Design Studio.

»A simple employee at the council rubbish disposal services had a peculiar imagination: he could see teddy bears in every object he observed. As a child he would stare at the clouds imagining that he could see teddy bears in the sky… and today… everywhere, even the black bin bags looked like teddy bears to him. No one at work could stand his excited cries every time he shouted „look at that bear… look at that one… don’t throw it into the garbage crusher… nooooo!“ Of course he was fired from his job, lost his family and friends and became homeless. Yet even though many people thought he was strange, none of them would admit that they too saw the teddy bear bin bags dumped around the streets of London.«

LED Freerunning

Quite luminous in its own way, fascinating use of LED technique: »Light Emitting Dudes takes a team of freerunners, geared up from head to toe with LED lights, and sets them loose on the streets of Bangkok at night. With acrobatic grace, they carved up the already buzzing nightlife spots while adding their own flair and colour to the mix.« If that’s still not enough, watch »Firefly«, Skateboarding at night with blue LED’s.

Sand Castles

Sand castle artist Calvin Seibert breaks with the common structure of forms in nature by creating geometric shapes such as rectangles, circles and hexagons. The balance between the roughness of the coast and the smooth surfaces of the castles is fantastic.


Chicago-based artist Naama Arad shredded hundreds of Xerox prints to form a large curtain installation. The many small strips merge together into an image of a monument that we might see online or in travel books. Blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior, Arad’s work creates a wonderful illusion of depth on a two-dimensional flat surface. This installation was part of EL AL at the Midrasha Gallery of Art, Tel Aviv.

This mix was made for the advent calendar 2012 of the befriended blog Kraftfuttermischwerk where you can still find it.

Anyways, we re-released the mix now with a new cover (and deleted the old text because it doesn’t fit anymore…We ask for your understanding) (Downloadlink at end of this post)
