Ovation TV ! ! !

BP Helios House ! ! !

Check Out this green Gas Station.
I was watching Ovation TV's Art and the City and they were talking about Art in Las Angeles and this was one gas station that was more Art and Eco-Green friendly then any other Gas station. The world's only Green Gas station everything that is except for the Gas but a good move in the right Direction.

Thoughts on Project III

Does anyone think we should do Swap-o-rama-rama prototypes? Should we reconfigure our own clothing (like Mariam's Towson T-shirt with the ruffles) and use that some how in our advertising, so people get a better idea of what will be going on?
Also, would the leftovers have to go to Goodwill, or would the Art Ed. Dept. take them? Would they be able to use fabric scraps, or is there a program that they run that could use that kind of donation. Also Art with a Heart maybe? I'm just thinking that not all our leftovers will be wearable clothing.

Mike Simonian and Maaike Evers of the San Francisco-based Mike and Maaike scoured Google Image Search for low-res photos of some of the most famous jewelry in the world-an Imelda Marcos necklace, the Hope Diamond-doctored them in Photoshop, and transferred the pixelated images to leather. The resulting Stolen Jewels collection distills the originals' bold sizes, shapes, and colors into striking graphic forms with a healthy dose of computer-age irony.

There's something very French countryside about Danish designer Lene Toni Kjeld's screen-printed Transitional Wallpaper, named for the sense of movement created by one pattern drifting into another. The design was recently picked up by The Collection, a boutique that champions girly wall hangings in Paris' Marais district. Available in eight different patterns and four hybrids.
