Michael Lau “Crazy Michael” Figures


Highly artistic and well designed sex toys

LELO is a Swedish company that designs and develops upmarket sex toys. It was founded in 2002 by industrial designers Eric Kalén, Carl Magnuson and engineer Filip Sedic. The market price for a standard vibrator is on average above $100 and some of their products can be charged using USB connections. What I find really interesting about these products is their ability to demonstrate how applied art on manufactured objects not only changes the way we perceive a product but it also increases a product's market value (until it becomes mass produced or competition appears). With out a doubt, these objects are rich in design aesthetics and not just simply dildos, but instead, high quality specialty products that serve as an example of how demanding consumers are when it comes to the quality of the products they buy. Moreover, these are proof that no matter what the object is, there is always room for improvement.

TED Prize Director Amy Novogratz was looking for an individual who had "a track record for changing the world in innovative ways, who hopefully has mobility and charisma, and who works on a global level” to be the recipient of the award. JR's larger than life photographs spread from walls on Parisian slums to huts in Africa, Brazil and India telling the story of the people. JR's work is truly inspiring and innovative.

Snail Graffiti and Tiny Places

Street artist Slinkachu has taken graffiti to a whole new different level, his "little people" installations reflect on the grim reality of living in a big city. In 2008 Slinkachu began his "Inner City Snail - A Slow Moving Art Project" in which he pimps out snails using non-toxic paint.
