Eating in Public (Gaye Chan Projects.)

Artist, Gaye Chan , chair of Art and Art History Department at University of Hawaii, Manoa, has been creating many cool public art projects in Hawaii.  Chan’s simple yet effective ideas make me think about a role of an artist in contemporary society.  Check out her site: Eating in Public for more info.

Vintage Japanese Bicycles

I used to see these hand-made bikes(Sekine, Marubeni Yamaguchi, Eiryu, Mizutani, Maruka and more)  in Japan all the time as a kid.  Everything (tofu, noodles, ice block, etc…) came on these work bikes.  However, as Japanese got richer and lazier, many manufactures could not ride the wave of Japanese modernization.

Lezyne CNC Floor Drive: too beautiful to keep in your garage.

Lezyne  released their new bicycle pump “CNC Floor Drive.”  It is so beautiful that matches very well to your GUCCI suit.
