The $100 Laptop Becomes the $10,000 Laptop

We know we keep touting this gift and that gift as the design gift of the season, but we’re totally serious this time when we say that a purchase from Artists for One Laptop Per Child will absolutely top anything you’ll find in the Sky Mall catalog. Unlike the Give One, Get One deal where you buy one and one goes to a child in need, this benefit and auction features unique works of art inspired by the OLPC laptop. Pieces by Olafur Eliasson, Jorge Pardo, Cindy Sherman, John Baldessari and more will be auctioned online until December 12. Ugo Rondinone‘s sand and mixed media piece (above) is a steal at only $12,000.

Tonight we’ll head over to the exhibition opening sponsored by Luminaire, our friends at I.D. and the Owner of the Best-Designed Abs in the World, Yves Behar. If we’re good, we might even be granted an audience with the Golden One. O great design gods, we don’t ask you for much, but please, please smile upon us tonight!

loud paper Returns With a Bang

LOUDPA~1.JPG

After a decade existing as potentially marked-for-death printed matter, Mimi Zeiger‘s zine loud paper has finally succumbed to its more natural blog form. But bringing the potent blend of architecture, pop culture, design, art, and music to the world wide web wasn’t an easy call, sayz Miz Z:

Since the zine is a proto-blog of sorts, it seems inevitable that loud paper would end up in this format. I tried to resist, I had my excuses, but the call of the keyboard was too great.

In this new incarnation loud paper is part per-zine, travelogue, marketing machine, and wunderkammer, but it will also remain true to the original mission to provide a forum for multiple voices. This summer I resurrected the nearly-forgotten Boring Issue from obscurity, posting several essays and updates from a few contributors. More installments to come. Also, get ready for a new call for submissions later this fall.

An archive has interviews with people like Doug Aitken, Jorge Pardo and Shepard Fairey, but you’d do well to stick closely to the new stuff: Zeiger definitely knows how to make herself heard.
