Hybrid Life

August 3, 2009

A couple weeks ago my boyfriend’s Land Rover limped its way back to Cincinnati, casting serious solemnity over his car-driving soul. It was time to buy a new car, but what could possibly replace the English-made manliness of a hunter green 2001 Land Rover Discovery II? A BMW or Lexus SUV? A Saab station wagon?

What’s this? Cash for Clunkers? Okay – maybe it’s time to consider an American automobile. So, we’re off to the Ford dealership to check out the models! With an average of 14 miles to the gallon, the Land Rover definitely qualifies for the highest rebate.

Fiona Carswell’s work is a fascinating combination of science and artistry. With a background in Interactive Telecommunications and Art History, it’s no wonder she designs such clever and intense objects. From Smoking Jacket to Cell Stickies, Modular Jewelry to Co-Dependent Gloves, Carswell is addressing human issues in an unexpected way.
