Designer Transforms Old School Analog Devices into Autonomous Drawing Machines


Concentrating on projects that incorporate the repurposing of obsolete analog devices, graphic designer Echo Yang transforms wind-up toys, cassette tape Walkmans and wind-up alarm clocks into drawing machines capable of creating complex works of art. His latest project titled “Autonomous Machines” explores the algorithm inside the ordinary objects around us. Yang explains, “I see the mechanical system inside the machines as a unique language. Machines are produced, as they are demanded and required in particular circumstance or era, they act as a witness to history. By making use of the specific mechanical movement of a particular machine, I attempt to transform them into a drawing machines in the simplest way.”

Death By Oreo Cupcakes


They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried

A lot of cake’s that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn’t really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor.

So, in this recipe there is Oreo’s in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That’s right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. The cookie stays firm, which makes it a little interesting to eat against the soft cake, but it actually gave a really yummy crunch. Overall this is an amazing cake. Super full of flavor and so fun!! Enjoy :)Estimated Cooking Time: About 25 to 30 minutes
