Link Round-Up: September 13, 2011

The Call for Entries is now open for The 16th Annual Webby Awards. The early entry deadline is October 28, 2011. Nominees will be announced in April 2012 with the Webby Awards ceremony taking place in Spring 2012. 

Here are a few photos from the inaugural Liquid Lounge event at Grind, a beautiful new members-only workspace in Manhattan, which includes a wonderful self-serve Intelligentsia coffee bar. Grind was recently profiled in Fast Company. One of the most interesting features of Grind is The Grind Gallery, an interactive gallery designed by Brooklyn physical-digital agency Breakfast, where portfolio work is displayed as framed art with push-button options to “like” and “print”.

Tania Blanco is a modern artist who shares her time in France and Spain. She says of her collection Sleepdrunk Vademecum, "The body is made up of a large set of rounded painting formats. Medical instruments, high precision technology, scientific devices, anatomical models, clandestine laboratories and human representation become the object of study and thought. The bizarre represented objects reflect a mixture of past and future, and an ambiguous clinical atmosphere flows in them. On many of these painted surfaces, a soft cool-cold gradient isolates the represented elements and gives a non-gravitational character to the compositions."
