This year will mark the end of analog TV in the UK when London officially switches to digital on April 18, 2012. To commemorate this transition, renowned artist David Hall has created an installation featuring 1001 different tv sets, ranging in boxy size, age, and condition, that are each running on different analog stations, simultaneously, for this piece titled 1001 TV Sets (End Piece).

The artist, who is well known for his pioneering video art installations, has reworked his 101 TV Sets from the 70’s in this massive solo exhibition titled End Piece… that is currently on display at Ambika P3 Gallery in London. As the exhibit comes to a close on April 22, 2012, the TV sets will gradually lose their signals until they are nothing but a series of static screens emitting white noise.

Him & Her Chairs

The Him & Her Chairs from Italian designer Fabio Novembre are unique anatomically-shaped chairs that take the waist-down form of a man and a woman. The chairs are produced by Casamania and are available in several colors.

“Him & Her are born directly from the ideas behind the Panton Chair. An evolution of the hermaphroditic original, declined into the harmony of the two sexes. They assume sculpted forms like naked models of seduction…but they feel no shame.”

The chairs have been spotted by Mission Mission at Osha Thai restaurant in San Francisco, California
