Tuesday TEA Time - A table top shape display (?), some new sneakers, and a fox in the snow…

Tuesday TEA Time
I’m finally back home and a little bit rested. Travel is really exhausting. 
I took a photo of some clouds that I really like. It is always amazing to see the tops of clouds while zooming around in the sky.

I am always fascinated by things that are a bridge between the digital and physical and this tabletop shape display is a great example. Also, this reminds me of the T1000. Found via Kottke.
A rare and toxic age
This article about resources, waste, and other environmental concerns related to tech is super interesting. My favorite quote is: “The politics of a modern world increasingly defined by data mining may only exist because of literal open-pit mining…”
I got some new sneakers. The Asics Gel Lyte III in the “Wasabi” colorway. The sneaker was a collaboration with End. I love it. Just beautiful. They came with branded chopsticks and a soy sauce bowl. Yep.
Another shoe I am interested in is the Adidas Consortium Quesence Solebox Collaboration. I might try to go down and look at them in person this week.
This week I came across Helena Perez Garcia
Her mysterious and conceptual illustrations, often depicting characters in surreal situations, are rich in detail and color. Her work is inspired by art, literature, and cinema.
Here are some of my favorites of her work:
You can buy prints and originals of her work on her website. I’m considering this Fox in the Snow illustration. She also has a Behance page.
That’s it for this week. I hope you found something interesting.
