Industrial designer Elad Barouch inveted a Bi-Cycle where both riders can steer and pedal equaly. In the interview with Bike Hacks he explains: "So the idea (...) really came since it was the ultimate way to explain my observation about the way to resolve disputes which is in short, at first we need to establish trust and learn to communicate, then we can start moving forward, once we are moving we can master our communication skills and than that is left is pure fun". If you like the Bi-Cycle click here to see what Elad Barouch calls the See Saw Bike.

In 2004 Rich Vogel was looking for music on Soulseek. Instead of MP3s the 31 year old musician found photos that -most likely- unintentionally landed in the shared folder. He than began specifically searching P2P programs with keywords such as "my pictures" and found thousands of private shots. On his website Foundphotos.net he began posting compiled albums, sometimes one new album a day. ''I've struggled with the larger moral issues, but what keeps me motivated is how great these photos are -- how much life and spontaneity is in them,'' Rich Vogel says in the New York Times. Thus filtered through Rich Vogel’s view, "Found Photos" gives a great insight into the P2P generation. And with the great amount of party, drinking and aftermath flics, Vogel's collection reminds of the Vice Do's and Dont's.

Er war nur zehn Meter niedriger als der Berliner Fernsehturm. Mit seinen 358,6 Metern war der Funkturm Frohnau Deutschlands vierthöchstes Gebäude. Am vergangenen Sonntag wurde der Turm um 13:09 Uhr gesprengt. Ich habe mir das Spektakel vom Hohenfelder Poloplatz zusammen mit den Kollegen vom RBB angeguckt.

Since then she is working on the concept of a live performance. It will be presented on March 20th at her show opening in Galerie Jan Wentrup. Save the Date!

M.I.A. (in 9th month pregnant), T.I., Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, & Kanye West yesterday performed "Swagga Like Us" at the 51st annual Grammy Awards. M.I.A. promotes in a positive way, that life is not over just because you are pregnant. The father is Benjamin Brewer from the band The Exit with whom she is engaged since summer. Enough gossip.

Bernhard Willhelm is born in Ulm, studied in Antwerpen, lives and works in Paris and sells most of his clothes to Japan. Usually he would not show in Germany. Definitely not his women's collection. But with his gainless baby, the men's collection, it is different. And since Mercedes paid him a show to give Berlin's Fashion Week a right to exist, he came and the Berlin Fashion Week has it's highlight. Click here to watch the highlight bigger.
The story of this "documentary" is, that filmmaker Jeff Schultz visits Bavarian village Oberpfallebachen to find out why the inhabitants are building a gigantic ramp. Looking at the huge white teeth of the protagonists and the mad story, I am pretty sure that this film is not a documentary. But it is done very well. To see the film in a better quality click this link.
