    Revival of the Letterpress printing

    Interview with A Two Pipe Problem Letterpress.

    If you have been in a basic photography course, where techniques of developing films are taught inside a darkroom, you won’t feel intimidated by the row of countless buttons when you need to work on photo retouching with computer. You’ll understand that each e...

    Milo by Lightovo

    A glass globe for Little Prince’s Rose.

    Quite a number of studies have shown that people who live in places with shorter spans of daylight usually are more prone to being anxious, unhappy and irritated. Our perception of warmth is presumably first learned from our mother’s body temperature and our e...

    A Dreamlike Vision

    Stairs by Tang Ho Lun.

    Seeing or climbing stairs in a dream is subconsciously related to personal growth. Going up a flight of stairs signifies an improvement in life; whereas going down a flight of stairs means a stage of stoppage. If you wander in between or walk around in circles...

    Puebco Empty Box

    Hiding inside aged books.

    It’s a well-known method in the history of publishing, where people carve out the inside pages of books to hide secretive small objects within. We may even have carved out the thickest dictionaries and bibles so as to hide things that are confined by school re...

    Wearables by Stephanie Simek

    A twist of typical form.

    Ever since moving to Portland seven years ago, not only has her surrounding space expanded into something much vaster than before, with a comparatively slower and more relaxing pace, her time seems to be better spent. It could also be that the boundless green ...

    Altered Images by Christopher Makos

    PORTS 1961 presents traveling exhibit and special capsule collection.

    Marcel Duchamp, the amazing dadaist who was in hands with other amazing names such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, had twisted the usual notion of art during the 20th century. His presence had been sliced into dual identities, where his alter female ego Rr...

    Handcrafted Ceramics by Jim Franco

    Pursuit of the essential.

    I’ve often wondered if artistic talent can be applied across more than one discipline; that is, if one’s ability to create in one medium (such as film or pottery) has any bearing on one’s proficiency in another. Such is the case with Jim Franco, a New York Cit...

    Joanna Laajisto’s Lundia System

    Paper sizes as storage boxes.

    There is a saying that any pieces of paper can only be folded seven times, even though the MythBusters got it to a total of eleven folds. But still, as you fold a piece of paper, it shrinks in its surface area and doubles in its thickness, making it difficult ...

    Tabletops by David Taylor

    Reviving the blue found object.

    Everything in this world leaves behind a trace. A plant leaves behind its seeds; an animal leaves behind their offsprings. But sad to say, we human beings leave behind a load of pollution. Even though the modern day child knows to chant “reduce, reuse, recycle...

    New York Times’ 36 Hours: USA & Canada

    An updated travel guide to North American.

    For many North American residents like myself, the idea of experiencing the continent on a tight schedule is an almost laughable proposition. Vast, varied and rich, both Canada and the USA possess big, glittering cities and eccentric small towns, as well as na...

    Moments

    Take Me Somewhere Nice

    Not because it is really bad here, so there is a need to head to a better place. That place truly is better. Perhaps, more realistic. Because of this, I capture “here”, so shallow and so unsatisfying, within the maneuvering moment – the most loved, the most br...

    Gestalten’s The Craft and the Makers

    Tradition with attitude.

    Credit the recent rise of mass-produced products, disposable fast fashion or the oversaturation of logo-driven goods, but craftsmanship is in more demand than ever and small manufacturers and independent designers alike have been experiencing an overwhelming r...
