As a smart and pleasing alternative, we point you toward the Maarten Baas Analog Digital clock iPhone app. Available for download at the iTunes app store here, the app is a replica of the Baas Analog Digital Clock on Blu Ray, which is on view at MoMA as part of their TALK TO ME exhibit opening July 24. It’s both a clock and a work of art. Watch it closely for a couple of minutes and you’ll see a person behind the scenes quickly erasing and redrawing those “digital” numbers, to keep the clock on time. Is that Maarten himself back there? Do you care? Get a life. Isn’t it enough that it’s only $0.99? So there’s no reason for you not to have it. Unless, of course, you have a Blackberry or a Droid… in which case, it’s obvious you don’t care about aesthetics anyways, so you’re not missing out.
moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.
