Bike-powered LED installation wows at TEDxKC
Ever feel like you’ve got enough energy to light up a room? Well, spinning your wheels on this bike — an art installation by Jessica Laino at TEDxKC in Kansas City, MO — creates a magnetic charge that powers the LED diamond pattern on the floor.
In the artist’s own words:
I created this piece with “impossible” in mind. Human energy is a substantial, impressive and inspiring force. It’s a simple, small and beautiful example of our power and potential as humans. I hope a viewer may take a notion of freedom and inspiration from this piece: the freedom to think and survive, and the inspiration to dream and create.

Whenever people asked what kind of dog I have, I tell them Prince Frederick Bunnywind (aka “Fred”) is a Brown Quilt Terrier.
Dinosaur art quilts by Betty Busby.
I just love dinosauria!!! Can’t get enough. These look like old, soft fossils. Yep. They do!
A quilt I made to sell at Comicon. Fabric is The Ghastlies from Alexander Henry. I made two quilts this size (48” x 54”), a mini “lap” quilt, and a smaller 20” “snuggly” with this fabric collection. It’s backed and bound in pink Minky. My price point on a quilt this size is going to be higher than the average impulse buy at Comicon, but we’ll see. If all else fails I can list it on Etsy.
Pretty amazing kaleidoscope quilts!
