Neverwet Graffiti: Invisible-ink Street Art Shows Up In Rain


Like invisible ink, the water-repellent areas remain hidden until another liquid is applied. Given criticism of NeverWet when applied to shoes (apparently it can discolor or leave residue) and phones (touchscreen and durability issues have been reported), this may prove to be a more persistent, if unintended, long-term application of the product. And for any interested subversive artists, it could prove a unusual boon when bothered by police: how will the authorities justify arresting someone for spraying an invisible coating on a public surface? Meanwhile, best of luck to Nathan in the contest – a win here is surely deserved!

[ By Steph in Art & Installation & Sound . ] Twenty-five silent, unmoving sheep gather on a carpet of lush green grass in the unlikeliest of places: an industrial gas station in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. This surreal pop-up landscape is a team effort between art collector Michael Shvo and Paul Kasmin Gallery, aiming to bring outdoor exhibitions to a broad audience. Found in the center of the High Line arts district, ‘The Sheep Station’ installation incorporates iconic epoxy stone and bronze ‘Moutons,’ sculptures by the late artist Francois-Xavier Lalanne. For Lalanne, the sheep symbolized a personal mission to demystify art. This unexpected pastoral scene, which will be in place until October 20th 2013, is just one of a series of rotating public exhibitions that will be hosted at the former Getty Station.

Jag Crossover Shows Its Mug


The C-Suites of two major auto makers are unlikely to change in the near future, despite rumors suggesting that both Ferdinand Piech and Alan Mulally are set to depart both VW and Ford respectively.
Mulally, who is reportedly being courted by both the Obama administration and Microsoft, told Bloomberg that  “I plan to continue to serve as Ford’s president and CEO until at least the end of 2014.” Sources have suggested that Ford’s board was open to him stepping down early so that he could explore other options.
Over at VW, rumors of Ferdinand Piech’s demise appear to have been greatly exaggerated. German outlet Der Spiegel claimed that Piech was about to step down due to poor health, with CEO Martin Winterkorn assuming the top job. True to character, Piech denied such reports, claiming ”Those who are written off live longer.”

Just before it makes its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show, Jaguar’s C-X17 concept shows its undisguised face. To the Jag faithful, this is as scandalous as bare ankles would be in Taliban-era Kabul. We’ll be waiting for the full picture before launch any damning “Avoidable Contact” fatwas.

Microsoft Makes Push For Mobile Market With Nokia Buy


. . . It speaks for what the company has been able to do.” After Tuesday’s announced sale, Icahn will own 3,589,963 shares, or 7.5 percent, of Hain, according to the company. As of June 30, the second-largest institutional shareholder in Hain, after Icahn, was money management firm BlackRock, with 4.1 million shares, according to Bloomberg data. Icahn didn’t say why he was halving his stake. SungHwan Cho, chief financial officer of Manhattan-based Icahn Enterprises, declined to comment. Hain makes products such as Celestial Seasonings tea, Earth’s Best organic baby food and Terra chips. Its stock is up more than 50 percent since early January, as the company posted two straight quarters of record sales.

Some analysts questioned whether buying up the mobile business of Nokia, the fading star of the cellphone world, would aid Microsoft. “Until there are signs that [Microsoft] can innovate and successfully execute in the post-PC era, we expect the stock to languish at current levels,” said Janney analysts Yun Kim and Alice Hur. Microsoft’s shares fell $1.52, or 4.55 percent, to $31.88 in trading Tuesday. Microsoft, based in Redmond, Wash., has been racing to catch up with customers who are increasingly pursuing their digital lives on smartphones and tablet computers rather than traditional PCs. The shift is weakening Microsoft, which has dominated the PC software market for the past 30 years, and empowering Apple Inc., the maker of the trendsetting iPhone and iPad, and Google Inc., which gives away the world’s most popular mobile operating system, Android.

Scanning The Skyline: 10 Bizarre Barcode Buildings


] In cities where highways and high-rises have taken up virtually every square foot of real estate there is to be had, lush parks, pedestrian walkways and bike paths can be hard to come by. That’s why, in many cities, supporters of public green space are starting to look up, and they’re reclaiming and rehabilitating abandoned infrastructure in the process. New York City’s The High Line has inspired cities across the world to consider disused railways and viaducts as elevated parks, and rooftop recreation spots are increasing in popularity, too. The High Line, New York City A rail track that was decommissioned in 1980, standing in disrepair as an eyesore for decades, is now one of New York City’s most popular attractions after its transformation into an elevated park. The High Line is a one-mile section of the former New York Central Railroad spur called The West Side, running along the lower west side of Manhattan, offering views of the city and the Hudson River along with walkways, naturalist plantings, and spots to rest.

Shtrikh Kod Building, St. Petersburg, Russia (images via: Eikongraphia ) Shtrikh Kod means “Barcode Building” in Russian, which is appropriate since there’s really no other way to describe it. The edifice, located in historic St. Petersburg, was designed by Vitruvius & Sons Studio and it was completed in 2007. (image via: Eikongraphia ) Kudos to photographer Alexey Naroditsky for capturing the stark yet striking exterior of the Barcode Building. It should be noted that one of the commenters at the Eikongraphia website where Naroditsky’s images are on display opined that “The facade’s hue is close to that of the red 633nm laser light commonly used in bar code scanners.” Coincidence?

European Commission Plans To Mandate 70 Mph Speed Limiters In Eu. Uk Government Calls It “big Brother”


  While Americans have an image of Europe as the place of autobahns with unlimited speeds, if a new proposal by the European Commission’s Mobility and Transport Department is approved, all cars on the continent could be fitted with devices that limit top speed to 70 miles per hour. Cars would possibly be equipped with cameras that would read speed limit signs on roads and apply the brakes if the legal limit is exceeded. The goal is to reduce the 30,000 annual traffic deaths in Europe by a third. The regulations would not just apply to new cars sold in Europe. Used cars would have to be retrofitted. The British government told the Daily Mail that it was opposed to the proposed regulations. Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin is described as having “erupted” at the news and said the move would violate motorists’ freedom. A source within the government said concerning McLoughlin’s instructions to the UK’s representatives in Brussels, “This has Big Brother written all over it and is exactly the sort of thing that gets people’s backs up about Brussels. The Commission wanted his views ahead of plans to publish the proposals this autumn. He made it very clear what those views were.” The proposed regulation goes by the acronym ISA, for Intelligent Speed Adaptation and it could be implemented using GPS data or the above mentioned cameras. Two less extreme options to automatically slowing the car would be posting a dashboard warning to the driver, and allowing the driver to disable automatic speed limiting.
