FEED Projects' is an organization that creates good products to help feed the world. For most of us, hunger has never been an issue. I've never had to think or worry about where my next meal will come from, but, not everyone has this same luxury. There is a real need in our world. 1 billion people right now do not have enough to eat Can you believe that?? I was shocked. The good news is, there are ways to help. FEED Projects' is taking initiative to reduce this number and make an extreme difference in thousands of lives. By purchasing one bag, school meals will be provided to a child in need for an entire year. So far they've given over 63,000 meals because of people who support this cause. Rethink how you buy products and support products with a purpose! Buy your feed bag here.
I am a huge, huge, huge, Bjork fan. I absolutely love her. Most people, I find, don't care for Bjork, or think she's absurd, (especially after the "swan dress" back in 2001), but I have to say, I have such a crush on her. For quite sometime, I've admired her music, artwork, and fashion statements. She is cutting edge, crossing boundaries, and will go above and beyond to express her creativity and passions. Most importantly, Bjork doesn't care what you think. In this month's edition of Dazed & Confused Magazine, I feel, Sam Falls and Bjork make a brilliant combination for an outstanding artful editorial. ...Wouldn't you agree?

When I discovered Lauren Treece's photography, I immediately fell into her trap of nightmares, daydreams, and bliss. There's just something about her work that strongly appeals to me, maybe it's the longing and curiosity I feel when I study each beautiful image. In her interview with GOLDREBEL she says, "I would love nothing more than to live out the rest of my days traveling around making art and living out of a gypsy caravan, surrounded by good people and good music." Sounds like someone I want to be friends with. Love it.

The second I ran across the work of Brian Dettmer, I knew I had to share it with you! His art consists of altering pre-existing books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and old medical journals, by using various knives, tweezers, and surgical tools. First he manipulates the edges and spine to create a sculpture form, then one page at a time, he carefully performs a "surgery-like process" with a mind-blowing end result. Nothing was added or relocated, just removed. Crazy huh? He must have a lot of patience. To view more of his work, click here.
