Disaster For Dinner… Calamityware

Hello everyone, QP is back! The exams are over, and while I don’t exactly have high hopes for my results, I have a lot of other good things to look forward to. (Like a trip with Experiment No.7!) More important now is that I can finally spend time blogging about interesting things again… like Don Moyer’s “Calamityware”. After inheriting a traditional fine bone china dinner plate from his great-grandparents, Moyer -who is a graphic designer- played around with the illustration on the plate and added all kinds of disasters to the idyllic little scene. This was the beginning of Calamityware, a set of amusing “altered” dinner plates with monster fishes, robots and ufos disrupting the peace of the original designs…

Several of Moyer’s designs are already for sale at http://calamityware.com (I’m especially fond of the monster fish plate…)

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
