Infinity is a kinetic LED light sculpture/installation by Gooseberry Studio (On view October 4 - 19 @ Van der Donck Park, Yonkers, NY) 
From a distance at dusk Yonkers residents and visitors can spy a subtle twinkle in the distance, within reach of the river near by.  Approaching closer they see a line of light continuously tracing over and over itself to create a levitating infinity. As you pass underneath, when the perspective view is lost, the sculpture transformers to a portal to the sky. The form of infinity references the Hudson River and the project is partly inspired by the Hudson River, which flows both ways (The river was called Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk, the Great Mohegan, by the Iroquois, and it was known as Muhheakantuck (“river that flows two ways”) by the Lenape tribe who formerly inhabited both banks of the lower portion of the river - all of present day New Jersey and the island of Manhattan)

MUSH-LUME PENDANT

design squish blog

design squish blog

The Mush-Lume and Mush-Bloom collections are an initiative to start thinking differently about what our products are made from and how we can keep them out of landfills. Danielle Trofe is working with Ecovative Design and their patented growing process to create ORGANIC, SUSTAINABLE and BIODEGRADABLE interior products. The Mush-Lume pendant uses the process that combines agricultural byproducts, like seed husks and corn stalks and mushroom mycelium. The mycelium binds with components and grows for several days in custom molds. When the growth process is complete, the material is heated and dried, ending the growth cycle. Ta da! Mushroom material! At the end of it’s life, the mushroom material can be broken into smaller pieces, then added to your backyard compost and will fully biodegrade.

THE VERMONT SAIL FREIGHT PROJECT

design squish blog

The Vermont Sail Freight Project is a sail-powered transportation company, delivering sustainably farmed products to families and retailers along the historic Champlain-Hudson waterway. Sailing barge, Ceres is named for the Roman goddess of agriculture, ferries shelf stable foods from the Champlain Valley, Vermont and the Adirondack region down to New York City and ports between maximizing wind power over costly and polluting fossil fuels.

The goal is explicit: to advance a carbon neutral distribution model that supports the local farm economy. Our sailing barge combines traditional technologies (sail power, rigging, winches and pulleys) with the power of crowd-sourced investment, internet commerce and grange-hall cooperative kitchens.

The sailing barge carries non-persishable and preserved agricultural products such as jams, jellies, pickles and condiments, along with potatoes, garlic, and other storage crops, dry beans, rice, dried herbs, maple syrup, honey, hard cider—all sustainably produced by farmers in NY area community. Some products are fermented, some dried or preserved with vinegar or sugar, processed in state-verified 20-c facilities by farmers and co-packers.
