Couch Surfing

Posted March 17, 2009
Web addicts, cuddle up: These pillows have a print that newshounds and pop-culture junkies can appreciate. Brooklyn-based textile artist Elodie Blanchard sums up our Google-happy age with this clever series of limited-edition cushions. From 2005 to present (2008 is the most recent version to date), she screen-prints the top ten Google searches of the year across cotton canvas pillowcases. The resulting mash-ups are variously memory-jogging and cringe-worthy: Hurricane Katrina and Xbox 360 both make the list in 2005, while Obama, Palin, and David Cook all share pillow space in 2008.

$120 each at Pastec, 459 Broome St., nr. Greene St.; 212-219-3922.
