This Elderly Couple Bought Their Household Appliances In 1950s, 50 Years Later They Still Work!


David Hedges/SWNS

Sydney and Rachel Saunders from Exeter, UK, an elderly couple, both in their 80s, have been using the same home appliances that they bought over half a century ago! Their tumble dryer, boiler, cooker, and washing machine cost them just £146 GBP ($193 USD) when they first purchased them way back in 1956, and somewhat incredibly, they continue to work to this day.

“Things were made better in those days, they were more durable and stronger,” said Mr Saunders, a retired accountant. “We were given the washing machine when we were married – 62 years ago – and the last time it was used was 12 years ago,” added his wife Rachel, a retired carer. “As far as I know it’s still in full working order, it just leaks a bit. You just don’t get appliances made like that today.”

The couple have finally decided to part with their antique appliances after all these years, but Mr Saunders isn’t bothered about how much they might get for selling them.

“I’d like them to go to a museum or something like that so they can be preserved,” he said.

かわいいだけじゃなく、ちゃんと血が通ってるから。クマのぬいぐるみの解剖図アート

04_e10


 アメリカ・ヴァージニア州生まれでニューヨークを拠点に活動しているアーティスト、デボラ・サイモン(Deborah Simon)は、動物のリアリティと偶像化されたおもちゃのギャップを探求するアート活動を展開している。

 彼女の彫刻は一見解剖図のように見えるが、それこそがリアリティであるという。一般的な動物のぬいぐるみはかわいいだけだが、実際の動物たちは、人間同様血が通っており、刺されたら痛いし、撃たれたら痛いのだ。

 彼女は主にクマに焦点を当て、ぬいぐるみを一から作り、そこに解剖図的刺繍を施している。

Molten Glass Is Hand Blown Into These Wood Pieces To Make Contemporary Sculptures

Scott Slagerman has always been captivated by glass – how it is transformed from a fragile, yet unyielding solid state to molten fluidity and back again; and how this mutable substance, though a process that is both delicate and dangerous, can create objects both essential and esoteric. He is fascinated by the role that glass plays in architecture, as well as in the everyday objects that we find around us.

To create each piece in the collection, the design is drawn on to the wood and then cut out using traditional woodworking techniques. Then, molten glass is blown directly into the cut-out shape and in to the wood. By blowing the glass directly into the wood cut-outs, it allows the glass to perfectly fit and they look as if they were naturally formed together.

 どちらかというとその細長い形状は宇宙船のようだ。
 だがこれは恒星間天体であり小惑星なのである。

 これまで発見された小惑星や彗星は75万個にも及ぶが、それはすべて太陽系の一部を構成するものだった。だがついに、太陽系外から飛来したという小惑星「オウムアムア(Oumuamua)」が観測されたという。
