Stefan Sagmeister Self-confidence Produces Fine Results

Give Stefan Sagmeister 10,000 bananas and some glue, and he’ll give you a giant Banana Wall, part of an art installation on Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far exhibition. Titled Self-confidence Produces Fine Results, the Banana Wall is made of real bananas stacked up in a giant wall at Deitch Gallery. In the Banana Wall, Sagmeister used green bananas to create the motto: Self-confidence Produces Fine Results and ripe banana as the background. The interesting thing about this installation is that it changes over time. As the bananas ripen further, the motto will disappear and the background become brownish-yellow. The bananas gradually decay over 24 days of the exhibition.

“The blueberries from Chile were almost half the cost of the blueberries from 800 miles away.”
New Mexico-based cook-turned-photographer Jonathan Blaustein’s work “focuses on the intersection of art, culture, food and economics in the 21st Century. His current project, “The Value of a Dollar,” which is ongoing, is the first installment in a larger narrative about how globalization and commodification are impacting society in the new millennium.”

World’s Biggest Writing:

"One person [Nick Newcomen] has created the world’s biggest writing  by using a car and  a  GPS tracking device as a ‘pen.’  The writing — "Read Ayn Rand" —   consists of 12,328 miles traveled and stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean and covers 30 American states.”
"He   turned on the  device when he wanted to write and  turned off the  device between letters. He then input the recorded GPS data into Google  Earth resulting in the image you see above."

Conflict Kitchen is a take-out restaurant that only serves cuisine from countries that the United States is in conflict with.


The restaurant’s Web site provides further explanation that’s worth a read:
"Public events, performances, and discussions about Iranian culture and conflict will be held at The Waffle Shop, 124 S. Highland Avenue, adjacent to Conflict Kitchen. Conflict Kitchen operates out of the Waffle Shop’s kitchen door and is an extension of the Waffle Shop’s unique programming. Each Conflict Kitchen iteration will be augmented by events, talks, and discussion groups about the culture, politics, and issues at stake with each county we focus on.
The Waffle Shop is a neighborhood restaurant that produces and broadcasts a live-streaming talk show with its customers, operates a changeable storytelling billboard on its roof, and runs a take-out window that sells food from countries engaged in conflict with the U.S. The shop is a public lab that brings together people from all walks of life to engage in dialogue, experimentation and the co-production of culture. The project functions as a classroom for students from Carnegie Mellon University, an eatery, a TV production studio, a social catalyst, and a business. Our customers are our funders, audience, and participants as we film during open hours, inviting interested patrons to express their unique opinions and personalities.”
