Evan Drolet Cook : Places I Haven’t Been (North America)

This piece by Evan Drolet Cook got me thinking about perception, and hubris, and how for the most part, our reputation around the world has the taint of arrogance and naïveté when it comes to world view.  Obviously, for some of us, this is not the case, but in general, Cook's rendition of the North American map is a good reminder of all we [...]

Démocratie Créative : Street Art for the People to Play

Created by the French collective, Démocratie Créative,  Spielplatz is a street art project which turns the streets into a playground. In their [...]

Pixar’s Austin Madison : Persist on Telling Your Story

This came to us through an artist who persists on telling his story, reminding us, not to give up: no matter what. Transcript PIXAR May 17, 2011 To Whom it May Inspire, I, like many of you artists out there, constantly shift between two states. The first (and far more preferable of the two) is white-hot, "in the zone" [...]

Kerry Howley : Attracts & Repels with Hair Necklaces

During the mid-nineteenth century hair work became a popular drawing-room occupation as the Victorians used hair in jewelry.  But modernity gave way to a different aesthetic, so that the work from Kerry Howley's graduate project at Middlesex University makes us pause for the very reasons she decided to do the series: My concept is a [...]

Tobias Wong : Candle that Burns the Scent of New York Times

When we saw this idea by conceptual designer Tobias Wong, who died too young at 35 last year, we immediately wanted one.  His work, always smart, gorgeous and ironic, often turned our ideas upside down. So it doesn't surprise that this limited-edition run of 1000 scented candles sold out immediately.  The work considers the death of [...]
