Stamps School of Art & Design

Our Penny Stamps guest tomorrow, the fabulous Sputniko! – an artist who uses design to explore technology’s impact on everyday life, and to imagine the future. 

Sputniko designed these mechanical high heel shoes, (Healing Fukushima (Nanohana Heels) that double duty as rapeseed planters for radioactive soil. Why? rape blossoms have been shown to absorb radioactive substances such as Caesium-137 and Strontium-90 from soil. Check out her site for a video of how they work.

Ann Arbor friends: that’s 5pm, at the Michigan Theater. See you there.
