Though residing in the renowned tourist spot of fancy lights and buildings, Las Vegas, should be interesting, Demi knows it's just another ordinary home with frustrating, forever-shifting weather. Meanwhile, she tries to find a caprice of clear senses. She might blog about it all at DesignCube or simply rest her eyes within the phosphenes.

By Demi He in New Events on Thursday 23 August 2012

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? True when one is bound to a mark of secrecy, guilt or regret, but Candy Chang’s Confessions invites people to confess about whatever troubles their mind. People anonymously shared their confessions on wooden plaques in the P3 Studio at The Cosmopolitan.  Along with her team, she exhibited the wooden plaques by hanging them on the walls and also painting select responses onto large red canvases.

By Demi He in Architecture on Monday 20 August 2012

It is now possible to taste a rainbow. Just kidding, you can only walk on it. Located in Magong, Penghu County, Taiwan, the rainbow bridge stands solid and fresh, reflecting its neon lighting onto the simmering water below. Passersby can wander onto the bridge while gazing at the rainbow’s reflection, which creates a serene and enchanting feeling. Simply breathtaking and illuminating, this is the perfect place for a night of adventure and family/friend attractions or maybe just some thinking time alone.

The Mending Project by Beili Liu

Demi He Contributor

By Demi He in New Art on Thursday 16 August 2012

This installation, the Mending Project, consists of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling, pointing downwards, while artist Beili Liu sits below sewing cloth. The hovering, massive cloud of scissors alludes to distant fear, looming violence, and worrisome uncertainty, described by the artist herself. During this live installation/performance, Beili asks visitors to cut white sheets and offer the section to her to sew together. As seen in the pictures and video, Beili calmly sews while scissors hang dangerously above her during her performance. She balances fear of the hanging scissors with the soft, calming, aura of sewing.

Pita bread pencil holder

Demi He Contributor

By Demi He in New Design on Tuesday 14 August 2012

Though the food resemblance is tempting, you might want to take a second look. What’s a pita bread doing wrapping up pencils and pens instead of food? The appetizing pencil holder was inspired by Ashtanur, a local pita bread from Jerusalem. When the pencil holder is laid out, leather sections appear to hold anything: from pencils to paint brushes to scissors. A ring can be attached to hold keys or flash drives. While Ido Mohar’s design for this versatile product is a new approach in gathering writing utensils, it sure also makes me hungry.

Demi He Contributor

By Demi He in New Photography on Saturday 11 August 2012

Looking up at the sky once in a while can give a new perspective on life. Straight Up, the photography collection of Cameron R. Neilson, does give that characteristic of giving something old a new outlook. The camera’s angle provides a different mindset of buildings and streetlights, giving a sense of exhilaration in architecture. Cameron defies the natural order to show the abstract features in everyday life.

Animal coat hangers

Demi He Contributor

By Demi He in New Products on Friday 10 August 2012

I immediately laughed at these, but I have to say, they are incredibly adorable and clever. Who would’ve ever thought of attaching animal heads to hangers? Someone must’ve been playing dress up with their cat. Not sure if this is a fashion trend that will be hanging around, but maybe these hangers will evolve into celebrities or band members.
