In an episode of The Simpsons entitled “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” (Season 2, Episode 15), at the request of his newly-discovered half-brother Herb, Homer designs a new car: “The Homer.” It’s the car of Homer’s dreams, a car for the “average” American, a car so ridiculous and expensive that it completely ruins Powell Motors his half-brother’s business.

That hilarious episode first aired back in 1991. Now, more than twenty years later, engineers at Porcubimmer Motors have created The Homer for real, complete with a bubble dome, a horn that plays “La Cucaracha,” and, we’re guessing, an engine that sounds like “the world’s coming to an end.”

The falls look stunning, but Bertie steals the show in these shots. 


The Chinese New Year Giphoscope

The Giphoscope n° 28 is a tailor made Giphoscope created for a chinese collector. The fireworks video was taken in Shangai with a smartphone, and we turned it into a sequence of 24 printed frames.
The Giphoscope n° 28 has a metallic structure in matte aluminum with ‘golden’ aluminum corners and hand-crank. The base/support is made of a rare 300 y.o. italian walnut.

The Giphoscope is entirely handcrafted in Italy and turns GIF and short videoclips into a tailor made, one-of-a-kind work of art.
