Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-1 Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-2

The Great Sleeping Bear” was originally created in 2007  by Eiko Ishizawa. Now it’s finally available for purchase.

“Because the sleeping bags will be made entirely from hand – including the fake nose and teeth – availability is going to be extremely limited. In 2014 Eiko only plans to make seven of them, but each one will be numbered so they can be cherished as pieces of art”.

$2,350 for the adult version, or just $2,050 for the kid’s sized model…
If this is a must-have, buy one here.

Bare Bears by Deborah Simon

These bears are so awesome!

Artist Deborah Simon‘s series of Flayed Bear Sculptures combine taxidermy, science and embroidery. Her three unusual bear sculptures have faux fur partially pulled back to reveal the anatomy underneath.

Deborah created the project both prior to and during her residency at New York’s Sculpture Space and describes the process as follows:

“The bears play with ideas around stuffed toys, taxidermy and classification. They especially interest me as bears are the ultimate stuffed animals; both the iconic plush toy and the prized taxidermy specimen for hunters. Most of all the sculptures deal with vulnerability; the vulnerability that the animals face from environmental degradation, conflicts with people, suburban sprawl and poaching. I particularly find the dichotomy between the defanged, declawed childhood toy and the fierce reality of a top predator fascinating.

The bears – polar, grizzly, black, and panda – are about toy size and seated like a plush toy bear. Their fur is removed on the body, leaving a linen skin, as if they’d been flayed or like undressed porcelain dolls, with the hard sculpted fur covered head and paws connected to the soft linen body. At Sculpture Space I started the black bear, creating the foam body, sewed the linen and fur, sculpted the head and mapped out the embroidery of the spine and nervous system.”

RSA Short: The Power of Empathy by Brené Brown

RSA Shorts - The Power of Empathy by Brené Brown 1 RSA Shorts - The Power of Empathy by Brené Brown 2

I’ve always been a fan of Dr. Brené Brown - and her studies of vulnerability, sympathy, and empathy. This is a great animated short which explains the difference between sympathy and empathy so very well.

The Scared is scared – by Bianca Giaever

the Scared is scared 1 the Scared is scared 2

This video truly made me smile – all through its almost 8 minutes.
The style is unique; created by Bianca Giaever, who asked a 6-year-old what her movie should be about!

I’ve just been searching backwards in my Facebook feed. Because I noticed this movie earlier today in my feed and opened it in another browser to watch it later. And now I’ve been searching and searching to see, who posted it. But I can’t find it. And therefore I can’t credit who ever brought this to my attention. But thank you!

Childcare is such an important part of many kids’ lives, and an integral component in their growth. It makes it easy to have the go-to building each day equipped with large and expressive animals abound the exterior.

This tiered building is located in Boulogne-Billancourt, France with Hondelatte Laporte Architectes at the helm of this creative process. While the interior is divvied up accordingly, it’s the exterior elements that really capture attention. Though the giraffe is stuck through part of the outdoor canopy, a bear on the opposing side peers over while ladybug’s trample up the side to get in on the patio level.
