UNION have collaborated with Hideyuki Nakayama to create this glass doorknob which allows "you to catch a glimpse of what appears to be another world, waiting for you to enter and join, but in fact is a reflection of the room on the other side of the door".
Brilliant idea, although, perhaps don't put one on the bedroom door.
I bet this lot would love it though...

The Street Photography Now Project is the brainchild of Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren, authors of Street Photography Now.
The idea is to give an instruction for photographers everywhere every week for a year and create a Flickr group for all the participants in order to generate new material and "inspire fresh ways of looking at and documenting the world we live in". Some of the results are simply genius.

Shane McAdams creates these beautiful drawings with just a small selection of ballpoint pens. Reminiscent of some of Wolfgang Tillman's abstract work, the finished items resemble chaotic dreamlike webs in misted hazes.
By the by, I meant to do a post about it aggeees ago, but if you didn't see the Tillmans exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery over the summer, you missed out big time. It was beautiful.
SM Found here.

The remaining members of Oasis after Noel's departure have reunited to form Beady Eye, and this is their new song, Bring the Light. Harking back to Northern Soul sounds, it's seems a progression from the last Oasis album and not at all a kick-in-the-groin for Noel with copy cat sounds and nostalgic whiny lyrics, as you may have been expecting.
I have just stumbled upon a truly inspiring blog, Vamoose.
With beautiful jewelery products and images of inspiration and development, it's a fine example of how blogs should really be done. Giveaway competition runs until November 24th... I want everything!

Photographer Mike Randolph has made this amazing video from the bi annual show in Tarragona, Spain, where castellers gather to showcase who can make the highest people tower. What a competition, and what a beautiful video.
Doug Foster 's 'Heretic's Gate', was shown at London's Art Frieze Fair, the theme: Dante's Inferno. "Hell's Half Acre" took place in the sinister Old Vic's Tunnels under Waterloo Station on October 11th. Such an eerie setting was perfect for the piece which was inset in an archway, the moving images being reflected in a pool of water representing the River Styx. The piece symbolises Dante’s entry point into the Sixth Circle of Hell where heretics and non-believers burn for eternity in furnace-like tombs.
Non of the images are digitally enhanced or g edited by Foster, just simply filmedold leaf and suspended particles in light rich water that billow and cloud in two different symmetrical planes, casting emotive and viimages of faces, beasts and ethereal witchcraft.
