Could a human-like object traverse sidewalks and streets along with us, and in so doing, create a narrative about our relationship to space and our willingness to interact with what we find in it? More importantly, how could our actions be seen within a larger context of human connection that emerges from the complexity of the city itself?
These are the questions Kacie Kisner asked. She answered them by building a robot.
Read more about Kacie's tweenbots project here. For now, watch this adorable video.

I know I'm nowhere near to getting married soon, but when I do will someone please remind me of these pretty flower diamantes? I know they're probably not ground-breakingly new, but I was intrigued by the way they catch the light in the first photograph. Photos from Chelsea Anne Photography.
I'm going to perform a bit of blatant blogging plagiarism here and simply post my recent favourites from over at Le Love. Sorry, but this is what it has come to. (i.e. I'm very lazy.)
I couldn't decide which of these photos to pick, so I posted them both even though they don't really match. One. Two.
I came across this video a while ago and thought it was lovely.
This is another video that is equally cute, if not, cuter.
And I'll finish it off with a poem/song lyrics/I'm not really sure. I read this in my head to the tune and voice of Kate Nash's video (the equally cute one).

I have to learn to draw like this. Isn't it amazing? Artwork by BlueAngel271183 on Deviant Art. I had to pick this as my favourite because, I must confess, I am a little bit of a Twilight book fan (Or Twilitard, as some say.) Click here and go to full view on the left hand side to see it in it's full-sized glory.

This is my new (to me) camera which I bought from an op-shop for $5. I mentioned it briefly before, letting you all know how excited I am that I found it with a half used roll of film inside. I've got about 2 exposures left so hopefully I'll be showing you the prints soon. This is what is going to last me until I can afford a new DSLR; scoff if you will, but I absolutely love it.
Still feeling a little un-inspired but this weather index is rather lovely. Above is the weather for Melbourne today displayed rether dashingly. There is also pretty music playing from my laptop but I'm not sure where it's coming from. It makes me smile a little more. Image below from here.

I'm in one of those terrible 'I don't like anything' moods at the moment so expect a lag in posts for a while. I do, however, like this photograph by Jen Ardell. I remember falling in love with this bike (or similar from electra, definitely with the fenders) then realising there was no way I could get one for under $2000. I nearly cried.
