Woman knits full size Ferrari for art school project

knitFerrari.jpg

From article: 

Lauren is a final year graduate in the School of Art and Design at Bath Spa University.

For her Graduate Exhibition she presented a full scale knitted version of a Ferrari, a hairy combination of a Testa Rossa and a 355 – complete with windscreen wipers, wing mirrors, low profile tyres and the famous prancing horse logo, all knitted in glorious Ferrari red (wool generously supplied by Sirdar).

Lauren's Ferrari is not just a car that happens to be made of wool. This is a carefully considered object that questions the relationship between male symbols and feminine craft to suggest the relationship is more complex than first thought. The car also cleverly plays on the hard smooth object being transformed into a soft textured one. The result is visually stunning.

Lauren's Ferrari also gives a new meaning to the knitted sweater. How many proud owners of cosy red pullovers – yes some with the legend emblazoned on the front – would love to immerse themselves in this giant item. Are cars themselves forms of clothing?

The School of Art and Design at Bath Spa University is one of the leading schools of art and design in the country.

Lauren's achievement, which took many months to complete was made possible by the School's excellent technical support and Lauren's own imagination – which is precisely what the School tries to nurture.

For all The Godfather fans, new horse head pillows!

horsehead.jpg
From product website:

A great conversation piece for the wannabe wise guy who has everything, and whose wife won’t let them own a revolver. For that matter, something for the authentic wise guy with a soft side for the well being of animals. A great home theatre accessory as a tough guy’s Teddy bear, aimed squarely at those with a diabolical sense of humor. Fans of the mob’s harsh brand of communication can now unite and rest comfortably, if not uneasily. Send someone a message they will never forget without the risk of facing prison time for it.

Animation for U2′s — Beautiful Day — by Michael Paul Young

In February of 2009 we got a call from Catherine Owens, the long time super creative director for the uber-famous band U2. Catherine came across our work and knew she found the team who could help with U2’s 2009 world tour (titled 360). After a quick stint of meetings in New York, we came back to the Bangkok studio and begin work for the following two months on numerous ideas.

U2 from Michael Paul Young on Vimeo.

The concert opened in Barcelona on June 30, 2009 to a sold out crowd of 90,000 fans. The screen that displayed this work was designed by Willie Williams, Mark Fisher, Chuck Hoberman, and Frederic Opsomer. The screen was composed of 888 individual hexagonal panels that support 500,000 Barco LED pixels. It can transform from seven meters to 22 meters high and move up and down. To sum it up, this is the most massive and badass screen ever and we were mega-amped to have worked on such an intense project.
