Pure fluff fun but this aluminum mold can in just a few seconds turn ice cubes into any number of shapes from spheres, molecules, snowflakes to soccer balls. The high conductivity of the aluminum slowly melts the cube and the weight of the top section squeezes it into shape. You can make 30-40 of these an hour and have a great item for a gallery opening or party.
If you really want to go the next step you even have AK-47 ice trays which make a magazine at a time lol.

And any excuse is a good excuse to listen to Kate Bush…”

The good people that bring you Proximity Magazine are having a release party this Saturday for their two new publications. If you can make it you should go. It looks to be a fun time.
“Please come and help us raise funds to pay for Version>09 Immodest Proposals. We will be giving to everyone who attends a complementary copy of our new publishing projects, Matériel and the new Pr poster/newsletter.
We will be hosting an evening of performances and displaying pages from Matériel on the gallery walls. Musical performances by Casual Encounter , Caw! Caw! (not cawcaw) and a few secret super special guest stars.”
Here we stand, at the beginning of the most exciting part of our Art Year: opening night. So, what do we do? We return to past form, act like idiots, and debate the state of the Chicago Art World and Art Chicago with Michael Workman.
Also, a sober and sick Duncan MacKenzie can’t handle a rowdy and drunken Bad at Sports crew and totally melts down, then screams repeatedly at Richard Holland? Could the band be breaking up? Speculation ensues. Read more
