Different Designs for Shooting with an iPhone

I’ve become an expert at this sort of awkward, clutching grip I use when shooting with my iPhone:

And most of you probably look like this when you shoot with yours:

A company called RHP Media reckons there’s a better, more ergonomic way to shoot. Their MirrorCase (and attendant app) for iPhone allows you to hold the camera lower and shoot from the top of it, rather like pointing a remote control at the TV. A physical mirror inside the case directs the image towards the camera lens, and the MirrorCase app’s software flips the image into the proper orientation.

Houseboat on the Eilbek Canal by Sprenger von der Lippe

“The Eilbek Canal, the moorings being considerably lower than street level and the banks lined with dense vegetation, conyeys the impression of introversion. Also the location between the bridges emphasises the impression of a quiet, enclosed area. Taking up this atmosphere we have purposely refrained from using dynamic, mobile-looking design elements in the newbuilding of our houseboat and are trying to establish a connection to the maritime world via materialities, construction and haptic.”

Exhibition: Luke Jerram: Revealing the Invisible

In the exhibition, Luke Jerram explores ways to reveal invisible phenomena. The show will include works from three major series: Glass Microbiology, Radiometer Chandeliers, and Rotated Data Sculptures. By capturing phenomena beyond the reach of the human eye and making them material, Jerram draws our attention to a vast array of scientific research and data gathering and questions if and how does this knowledge serve us.

Glass Microbiology continues Jerram’s exploration of clear glass renderings of viruses and bacteria at the root of the most dangerous diseases (such as HIV, H1N1 and SARS). The series presents us with exquisite transparent objects which infer deadly harm. Working with leading virologist Dr. Andrew Davidson from the University of Bristol, Luke Jerram collaborated with specialized glassblowers to fabricate the pieces.

Luke Jerram: Revealing the Invisible, June 8 – July 6, at Heller Gallery, New York

Her Crossropes shelf is a collaboration with Tamas Bozsik and was awarded an honorable mention by the Green Furniture Award 2012. I’m definitely going to keep an eye on her.

sweet details


I’m neither a wine drinker nor a homeowner with a place for a mailbox, but that’s not going to stop me from wanting both of these pieces at BHLDN. Who wouldn’t want to get love letters in a heart mailbox? And if you’re pouring someone special a glass of wine, why not cork it with an arrow fletching in between drinks? It’s a little early for wine, but I’d happily use that on a bottle of fizzy water or juice any day. Click here to check out the bottle stopper ($12) and here for the love letters mailbox ($78) online. xo, grace
