Seven towering sculptures comprised of brightly colored facets have recently landed on the streets of Boston, courtesy of Okuda San Miguel.

We’ve only got one life to live, but thanks to three simple keystrokes, at least we can restart our PCs! This is the story of how one clever man created Control-Alt-Delete: a relatively tiny engineering tweak that changed IBM computers, and mortal existence as we know it.

The Human Restaurant in Tokyo Serves Last Meals of Death Row Inmates

Just in time for Halloween, a spooky pop-up restaurant has opened in Kabukicho, known historically as the red-light district of Shinjuku. The Ningen (“human”) Restaurant (人間レストラン) is a fully-functioning eatery that serves the last meals requested by death row inmates prior to their execution.

the last meal of Gary Mark Gilmore, convicted of armed robbery and murder in Utah. He gained international attention for demanding the implementation of his death sentence. (all photos by @ellieille )

The Human Restaurant is located right across the street from Shinjuku’s now-famous Robot Restaurant. And the naming convention is no coincidence. Shinjuku Soft, the company that owns the Robot Restaurant, also owns the building that houses the Human Restaurant. And it’s clear that the company is becoming “the face of redevelopment,” says the art collective. “For better or worse, theme park-like events and club events have become normalized in artistic activities.” They go on:

“Nowadays cities everywhere besides Kabukicho have public spaces that are designed and themed. Parks are being privatized, forcing out questionable people, such as street-stall vendors, or homeless people, who once occupied the space. Under the name of “the public,” only those who are chosen are allowed to enter. Do we need a public because there are various kinds of people, or is there first a public which requires people to be there?”

Surreal Installations And Unexpected Viewpoint Of Myeongbeom Kim – Design You Trust

Myeongbeom Kim builds unique works by combining everyday objects whose purposes are often in stark contrast. The sculptures are created from recognisable pieces such as birthday cake candles, canes, and pencils.

These objects are reworked to drastically limit their inherent purpose, like the untitled sculpture in which the Korean artist floats a helium-filled balloon inside of a bird cage. The latex bubble is unable to rise higher than the surrounding metal enclosure, and thus balances within the structure until its eventual deflation. Kim received his BFA in Environmental Sculpture from the University of Seoul, and his MFA in Sculpture from the Art Institute of Chicago.

Artist Leaves His Paintings For People To Find After Getting Rejected By Art Galleries – Design You Trust

My Dog Sighs, a talented street artist from England, made his first drawing when he was 7 years old. Since then everyone knew him as a child who can draw, and this was enough to set him on a journey to become an artist. Later, he left his job at a primary school where he worked as a teacher, decided to become a professional and started painting everything he thought the galleries would like.

But the reality was not that easy – after visiting every gallery within a 200 mile radius and receiving “no” from all of them, he lost his dream for a while. Until one day Banksy‘s stencilled Rat, sprayed on a wall in London, inspired him to try this again, but with a different approach. This is when he started to drop his paintings in the streets for someone to find, and not giving up led him to becoming one of the most respected street artists in the UK.
