Watch in high quality on SubmarineChannel: he thinks its a bit cliché for an artist from Scandinavia , there is no question about it: Kustaa Saksi is heavily inspired by nature. His organic shapes and arabesque lines easily remind us of dark woods, meandering rivers and steep mountain slopes. Kustaa: Especially in Finland, you dont have to go far to find yourself in total wilderness. But this doesnt mean Kustaa has limited himself to natures palette as well. On the contrary: Kustaa loves bright colours, from deep purple and vivid yellow to down right, crazy psychedelic compositions. Art nouveau and pop art from the sixties are also major influences on his work. He likes to mix these powerful art movements from the past in a modern fashion, using the computer in a way it doesnt look like it was done with the computer. Having worked for magazines and brands all over the world, Kustaa has made a new step in his career: designing for 3D. Earlier he did create prints for 3D objects like shoes, but now he committed himself to the real thing - with some help of a befriended artist and an advanced Xerox-machine. The sculptures were commissioned by pop up gallery Maxalot in Amsterdam for an exhibition called Heroes. The first time he saw his computer renderings come to live it was in fact an orgasmic experience for Kustaa. So we joined Kustaa to Utrecht where we witnessed another stimulating session of the birth of an iconic sculpture. Wanna be excited too? Watch the short doc we did on this Finnish hero. SubmarineChannel Crew: Director: Geert van de Wetering, Interview: Lotje Sodderland, Camera: Niels de Roos, Editing: Jorrit Spoelstra. Thanks to the hospitable people of Protospace where artists can experiment with new techniques and materials and Maxalot, the pop up gallery in Amsterdam.

It is situated on the Islands of Zealand and Amager. The oldest section of Copenhagen's inner city is often referred to as "Middelalderbyen" (The Medieval City). However, the most distinctive district of Copenhagen is Frederiksstaden developed during the reign of Frederick V. It has Amalienborg Palace at its centre and is dominated by the dome of the Marble Church as well as a number of elegant 18th century mansions. Also part of the old inner city of Copenhagen is the small island of Slotsholmen with Christiansborg Palace and Christianshavn. Around the historicacal city center lies a band of charming, dense and well-preserved residential bouroughs (Vesterbro, Inner Nørrebro, Inner Østerbro) dating mainly from late 19th century. Yhey were built outside the old ramparts of the city when the city was finally allowed to expand beyond this barrier. Sometimes referred to as "the City of Spires", Copenhagen is known for its horizontal skyline, only broken by spires at churches and castles. Most characteristic is the baroque spire of Church of Our Saviour with its spiralling and narrowing external stairs that visitors can climb to the very top of the spire. Other important spires are those of Christiansborg Palace, the City Hall and the former Church of St. Nikolaj that now houses a modern art venue. A bit lower are the renaissance spires of Rosenborg Castle and the "dragon spire" of [[Christian IV of Christian IV's former stock exchange, so named because it is shaped as the tails of four dragons twined together. Recent years has seen a tremendous boom in modern architecture in Copenhagen both when it comes to Danish architecture and works by international architects. For a few hundred years, virtually no foreign architects had worked in Copenhagen but since the mid 1990s the city and its immediate sourroundings have seen buildings and projects from such international star architects as Norman Foster[18], Hadid[19], FNouvel[20] and Liebeskind[21]. In the same time, a number of Danish architects have achieved great success both in Copenhagen and abroad. This has led to a number of international architecture awards. In 2008 British design magazine Monocle named Copenhagen __World's best design city 2008.[22] Buildings in Copenhagen have won RIBA European Awards four years in a row ("Sampension" in 2005[23], "Kilen" in 2006[24], "Tietgenkollegiet" in 2007[25] and the Royal Playhouse in 2008[26]). At the 2008 World Architecture Festival in Barcelona, Bjarke Ingels Group won an award for the World's Best Residential Building 2008 for a house in Ørestad.[27] The Forum AID Award for Best building in Scandinavia went to Copenhagen buildings both in 2006[28] and 2008[29]. The boom in urban development and modern architecture means that the above mentioned horizontal skyline see some changes. A political majority has decided to kepp the historical center free of highrises. But in its, several areas will see or have already seen massive urban development.

*******www.jomadeals****: Skagen Sport and Glitz Ladies Watch 745SSXR. A sexy, glitzy watch for the active, modern woman. This deal of the day is $74 (60% off the $185 retail price). Sale ends at midnight tonight (EST). September 8, 2009. All the singles ladies, all the single ladies. Put your hands up. If you liked it, then you shoulda put an order on it. That’s the cheesy beginning of this posting. It’s awful, I know. But I heard that song in the car on the way to work this morning and now I can’t get it out of my head. You should feel lucky you’re not in the office today hearing me sing it and occasionally getting up from my chair to do the dance that goes along with it (okay, so I’ve also seen the music video a bunch of times, so sue me, I also like Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, so laugh it up, it’s all out on the table now. Now I don’t have to lie and say I’m buying the adult large Jonas Brothers T-shirt for my teenage daughter). But before I digress too far, let’s talk about the watch and not my personal psychological issues. Our friends from Scandinavia bring us another gem from Denmark, the Skagen Sport and Glitz ladies watch (all the single ladies, DANG IT, it’s in my head again!) The name says it all. Glitz and Sport: a sexy, glitzy watch for the active, modern woman. It has a sleek design that will get you lots of compliments, with the functionality and reliability you need to run a hectic but happenin’ (I’m using 60’s beatnik slang here, daddy-o) life. And why not? Life was meant to be fun, beautiful, and too crazy to manage. So buy the Skagen, live your life, and try to keep only good songs stuck in your head (here’s a few to avoid. WARNING! DO NOT click the links unless you want the song to burrow itself into the center of your brain for the next week: Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer, The Song that Doesn’t End from LambChop’s Play Along, the Theme of Lambchop’s Play Along from Lambchop’s Play Along, Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler, Never Going to Give You Up by Rick Astley…crap, well now I have Rick Astley stuck in my head. That’s a billion times worse. Someone shoot me).
