I did some test prints last weekend at the same time I was trying to figure out how to rescue all the data from my deadly hard drive.

Just two days ago, my laptop came back to live for no reasons. It doesn't make weird sounds anymore and no more strange messages. It looks totally fine now. So I think maybe it's too tired and need to take 5 days off,......... but my new computer arrived at the second day,.. so I was busy on reformatting the old one and setting up the new ones . (plus two deadlines to meet this weekend!)

Here are some eye candies for everyone!!
Marvelous reports in Ping Mag.

First, Hassaku

I love these rubber stamps! so playful!
But it reminds me that one of my friend from grade school made amazing rubber stamp (out of soft eraser).
We use stamp instead of signature. Sometimes we will need to get the parents personal stamp to proof that they've reviewed our grade or some documents from school,..... and sometimes we don't really want them to see them, so we have to make up one......it sounds so crazy,. because it's totally illegal....

In Taiwan, we don't sign our check!! We use stamp, but most of them are very nicely made. Usually they are engraved on the stone.

Also check their books!
I love those simple shapes and colors.

Have a good weekend!!


Dead, totally dead

My laptop is dying now!!
We have tried and pried.
We don't expect it will come back to us again, so please excuse my absence for a while.

How sad! I LOST 2 years’ photos and work!!( i only managed to save part of them)

Luckily, my blog and flickr still got some traces of past ..........

Materials & Applications

We drove by this place last christmas. I always want to check out this cool outdoor exhibition space in silver lake. Finally we made it!! The installation was already falling apart when we were there, but I still like the whole idea of the installtion and the exhibition space. It looks like somebody did a cool and creative art work in their front yard, it's open 24 hours. It looks very nice at night !!

Check here for more past exhibitions.

Also a very cool blog about these "bubbles" . It tells you the whole process.

Photos above are taken by CL, my partner and dear dear husband. He also did this painting and this one.
