Sarah Rosado is an Illustrator and Photographer from New York:
Sarah’s passion for Art has always been a big part of her life. At the early age of 5 she found herself scribbling drawings all over her notebook and everything she could get her hands on. Although it got her in trouble sometimes, her teachers knew there was a talent there waiting to explode. Over the years Sarah continued her drawings which evolved from pencil to the computer where she mastered the paint shop program unlike any other. In addition, a few years ago she developed an interest in photography focusing on capturing images and other creative scenes that are intended to fool the eye of the beholder with thought provoking and illusional images that are open for different interpretations by the viewer. Sarah’s Art and Photography has been featured in different magazines and articles, such as, Sketchbook magazine , Paper Aquarium Magazine, Fluster Magazine, Pocketful Illustration Magazine Trustme magazine, Catapult ArtMag, Arteuparte Mag and many more. Through it all, her biggest inspiration has been her beloved uncle, Cucho, who, an artist himself, always found the time to encourage, advice, support and believe in her talent.

The result is stunning and if necessary also easy to remove.

The Image Toaster is a project by Scott van Haastrecht that combines your news with your breakfast. It’s a Wi-Fi-connected appliance that scours the web for a popular photo of the day, then burns this image into your bread.
Now, that image is rendered fairly low resolution. A filter converts complex pictures into a small grid of black and white pixels. These binary commands fire off to the toaster itself, which uses servos to adjust a correlating grid of burners into on/off positions. So in its current form, the Image Toaster is more of an art project than a feasible alternative for news consumption.
Even still, the toaster is a fascinating case study on how to inject more information into the natural world around us. In this clip, we see the simplest of variations: a heart, conveying Valentine’s Day. But there’s no reason why something similar couldn’t, maybe upon measuring your blood sugar, print Xs and Os on the pieces you should or shouldn’t eat. More abstract data possibilities might work even better–like a general density map might signal how many @ tweets came your way in the night, or which parts of your day will be loaded with meetings.
