The Fun Theory

The Fun Theory: Piano Staircase

How do you tell more people to use the stairs? By making it fun. The fun theory is that in order to change people’s behaviours for the better, you need to add some fun into it.

I’ve had a pretty busy and stressing week so I’m glad to be ending the week with this.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. With some fun.

Haribaabu Naatesan

Haribaabu Naatesan

I’ll have to admit, I love artwork that’s completed with everyday objects as I find it hilarious and interesting about what artists choose to use in their work. Haribaabu Naatesan, is an Indian artist who uses e-waste.

Hari questions used and even past by their due date electronics and the way we see them. Just because they’re old and no longer used doesn’t mean they should be forgotten is the philosophy behind his works is to create awareness of reusing e-waste.

With our fast turnover of electronics in our societies and limited resources to break down all the material, Hari’s work is inspiring.

Inka Mathew

I was clicking procrastinating around the internet the other day and came across this Tiny PMS project by designer Inka Mathew. She’s matching tiny everyday objects with their equivalent Pantone colour. Check out her tumblr page here.

It’s equal parts cute and delightful. I’d classify this as some sprinkle of happy.

Andre Levy

Andre Levy is a brazilian designer now based in Frankfurt, Germany. Project Tales You Lose is about fusing fantasy pop culture figures with the very real coins used everyday.

The whole purpose of the project? the individual expression of each coin by painting over the faces of the mass produced one.

Stay cool, stay you.
