I love Material Teddy, an inspiring project by recent Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Makikio Shinoda. It combines my love for material exploration and anything baby-related and is such a beautifully crafted object. I would love to have one for L!
"Material Teddy is made of various untreated natural materials that allow children to play and stimulate their senses to encourage the development of a healthy and balanced cognitive system. It reintroduces children to a rich sensory experience by stimulating the five senses". Images and text from Makiko Shinoda's website.

I loved this exhibition by Tacita Dean at the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern, an 11 minute silent 35mm film projected onto a 13 metre high wall featuring a montage of black and white, colour and hand-tinted film. The colour-blocking and sliced imagery took on a very graphic and interesting collage effect, while the enormous scale allowed the viewer to immerse themselves in the landscape (I particularly love the little boy in the bottom image who looks like he can feel the wind blowing off the waves).
