A crushing reminder from The Cool Hunter that it is, as you feared, far too late for you to do anything worthwhile with your life. This stuff is the work of 19 year old, SELF TAUGHT Minjae Lee.
I hesitate to put this in Distracted, as it should be a focus:) Inspiration Room includes some good info around this, as usual.
Or at least I am like the crows of conventional wisdom, said to appreciate shiny. Appreciation augmented by vivid colour in the shiny. Lost At E Minor recently featured the creations of one Linda Dolack, who is probably a crow like me.
On the great Booooooom! :
Webcrush Wooster Collective keeps me up to date on JR’s nonstop genius.
Fecal Face hosting this great looking show called Gone But Not Forgotten, featuring the work of one of their faves, Paul Urich. Damn, on the wrong coast again.
The Booooooom! dude just keeps rolling the finest online art. Three cheers!
There are no flies, as they say, on Design Sponge. Here they feature wonderful French artist Martine Camillieri, whose description of her work adds to it another dense layer of enjoyment.
“All my artistic work aims to prevent the proliferation of objects on our planet. It is a lot of small ecological experiments aimed at recreating daily life. It is an ecological idea of everyday design, of slow-design or eco-design. The transformation of objects which are around us which we don’t see or no longer notice, it helps to give them a certain charm, avoiding the necessity of new ones. For me the object in itself doesn’t exist, it’s nothing but an endlessly interchangeable Lego brick, it is only important when we look at it. This is my work: If we look at objects we ( beautify them, turn them inside out, change them..) the fact that they are all around us should be enough for us. Let’s stop always wanting more, making too many or importing so many: one day all these goods will overwhelm us. After the factories which produce them, the warehouses that stock them, the shops that sell them, the discount shops in the suburbs which sell them off cheaply, we have arrived at whole cities which are totally dedicated to them, you can even visit them by train!”
