First Kiss (creator asked 20 strangers to kiss for the first time)
This makes me unbelievably happy.
This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen
I smiled every second of this
THIS IS SO LOVELY AND AWKWARD AND LOVELY OH WOW
Hugest smile the entire time.
This affected me on a deep emotional level. My eyes are watering. Am I going through menopause?
I have a serious longing to kiss a complete stranger right now.
So now I love you more Whiskey.
I hadn’t seen the video, only the photos. This is beautiful. I teared up too.
Part of me feels like all of them should be together lol.

“Questions are what it is all about. Awakening doesn’t set out to provide the answers, rather to bridge the gulf between lab science and the mainstream, and to share an incredible world of discovery.”http://www.signalsblog.ca/awakening-in-toronto-stem-cell-images/
"I scooted down on Thursday afternoon to check out an exhibit of large scale photography of stem cells. It was so trippy and appealed to me in a number of ways – bright colours, big sizes, science and art in one, and it was free to check out! How great is that? I stared and stared at these awesome pictures and just couldn’t get my head around the idea that all this is happening inside my body right now and always. It also made me wonder, are AI researchers searching for the analogue of stem cells for robots? Is there a quest for a bit of totipotent machinery or programming? Or is biomimicry not so helpful at this point?"
Knob Portrait: Mayor Ford
(983 cabinet door knobs + 1 table top)
IKEA, the ubiquitous furniture manufacturer teamed up with the Design Exchange and some of Toronto’s best creatives, including Paul Raff Studio, for a unique fundraiser. The designers were given a $500 budget to go shopping at IKEA; then deconstruct and reassemble their purchases in any way they liked. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s portraits of celebrities such as Chairman Mao and Marilyn Monroe, Paul Raff Studio created “Knob Portrait: Mayor Ford.” The artwork garnered the highest bid, and the funds are going to support Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of design excellence and preservation of design heritage.
