Taking as its starting point the extensive ethnographic collections of the Weltkulturen Museum, Trading Style constitutes an unprecedented dialogue between the past and future worlds of fashion. It juxtaposes archive photos, historic artifacts and objects with prototypes for new collections from A Kind of Guise, Buki Akib, Cassette Playa and P.A.M.

I really love this black and white photograph (I have a printout taped to my wall at work) and recently I asked my Japanese friend to translate the text.

It reads, "To India in Search of Le Corbusier."

After some digging, I found the Open Hand Monument Le Corbusier built in Chandigarh, it’s 26 meters tall! The Open Hand (La Main Ouverte) is a recurring motif in Le Corbusier’s architecture, a sign for him of “peace and reconciliation. It is open to give and open to receive.” It represents the give and take of ideas.

RoboCop vs. Terminator. The video game was pretty great too. The Sega Genesis version was awarded Bloodiest Game of 1993 by Electronic Gaming Monthly.

feltron: I’m thrilled to launch my new app Reporter today. I’m indebted to the hard work of Drew Breunig and Friends of The Web for helping me finally bring this idea to life.
In 2011 Drew built the first working version of the app for me, and named it “Reporter”. It didn’t look like much, but the original app worked perfectly throughout 2012 and the data it produced culminated in my 2012 Feltron Annual Report. 
Reporter’s random prompts to answer a survey had made tracking the year a breeze and helped me to investigate questions that would have been impossible to answer using other methods. I was interested in who I spent time with, but to track this in an ongoing basis is a full-time job. I added questions for what I was wearing, eating or drinking and if I was working or not… and we streamlined the process to ensure that a report only took seconds to answer. We also added in background sampling to get information from the phone on the weather, my location and the ambient noise level.
That app is now all grown up. You can customize all the questions, and turn on a range of sensors to gather background data, and the app will visualize your responses. If you are interested in a lightweight means of exploring your behavior, give it a try.
