…Grand Opening wants to be a Wedding Chapel?

Grand Opening Wedding Chapel

Grand Opening is currently trying to reinvent their space as a wedding chapel, and is using Kickstarter to raise funds for the cause.

Since big church weddings are ‘out’ this year, Wedding Chapel hopes to be a recession-proof, ultra cool solution for loved ones, friends and family.

“Wedding Chapel” will be New York City’s most fun and affordable wedding spot, offering couples the chance to have long lasting memories without a church or city hall.

The way Kickstarter works is that projects can ask for money, and then people can donate in exchange for certain rewards. In this case, any donor of any amount will have his or her name displayed on the wall of the chapel, and pledges of $100 or more can reserve Wedding Chapel for an hour or more for their own ceremony.

Sound like something that you’d want to take part in? Then hurry on over to Wedding Chapel on Kickstarter and put your pledge in!

…Peter Funch’s photos are fantastic?

Peter Funch

To create a single image, Peter Funch stakes out an area of New York City for a few days and snaps people as they walk by. Then, he stitches together pieces and parts from each image to create a final composition that is thematically unique and almost unbelievable.

The above image is his comparison of black vs. white, but you should definitely check out the site for more of his work.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Scanwiches?

Scanwiches

If you think that “scans of sandwiches for education and delight” doesn’t sound like a deliciously good time, then you obviously haven’t been to Scanwiches.

The website itself is run by Jon Chonko, a thehappycorp global designer, and to make the images, he takes sandwiches from the lunch shops around NYC, cuts them in half, scans the results, and then adds the image along with a written description of the ingredients to the Tumblr account.

If you’re getting ready to visit the site, I have one warning for you: Don’t visit the site on an empty stomach, because monitors don’t like to be licked.

…It’s Things Thursday: Walls Notebook?

Walls Notebook

The Walls Notebook is a sketchbook that’s filled with 80 ‘clean’ New York City walls for you to write, paste, draw or doodle on.

Walls Notebook

The interesting and inspirational backdrops are meant to serve as a blank slate for the graffiti artist inside of you to create upon, and with a little practice, you’ll be giving Shepard Fairey a run for his money in no time.
