Ahhh, these are so great! Guess what? It’s in Amsterdam! What the hell is going on with Even More Legendary and the Netherlands? I don’t get it. This recent jewelry grad transforms existing urban structures into giant jewelry. She is working with that zeitgeist about “ordinary”, and quotes the poetic words of photographer Joel Meyerowitz on the second splash page, Splash The Sequel, of her site: “It may be the slant of the light, it may be even the smell, something not visible, you may feel yourself rooted to the spot where suddenly there’s a smell of salt water mixed with roses, and it’s got your number.

The Filmmuseum is a museum of cinematography in Amsterdam. In 2011 they will move to a new facility, and their announcement of this news was appropriately cinematographic. Dutch sand sculptors The Sand-Factory created a replica of the new digs, and Britain’s Theo Watson, currently based in Amsterdam, designed a projection for the sculpture that really takes off at about 1:20. See for yourself.
“Mama Cash was founded in 1983 in the Netherlands by five Dutch women active in the women’s movement: Marjan Sax, Dorelies Kraakman, Tania Léon, Patti Slegers and Lida van den Broek. They all strived for the same purpose – more self–reliance and independence for women – and for that reason founded Mama Cash, the world’s first independent, international women’s fund.”
