Jessica Frelinghuysen


Jessica Frelinghuysens work is concerned with, as she puts it “…creating democratic spaces”. Devises that abet the assimilation (and sometimes alienate) the user in our new civilized constructs. Ponchos to enjoy grass in without having to actually touch grass, and big collapsable paper helmets to tell secrets in are a few concepts that blur the line between genius and funky-freshness.

B/D Apparel Spring/Summer 2009 Lookbook

Beautiful/Decay contributor and photographer Luke Stettner recently created a gorgeous lookbook for Beautiful/Decay Apparel’s Spring/Summer 09 seasons. The concept behind the shoot juxtaposes evocative objects & optical affects with our apparel, to complement the shirts in abstract ways. Still life images of disco balls, prismatic rings, shag carpets and balloons contrast the light, color and texture of the shirt graphics. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Hardland/Heartland (redux)

 

 

I wanted to issue an apology for committing the ultimate blogging sin: mixing up two artists’ works (!!). So here is my attempt to correct my error.. the HARMLAND/CHARMGLAND post I made was actually composed of two Flickr accounts’ works: Hardland/Heartland and Portrait Painters. This post is about HL/HL, and the next will be Portrait Painters. Damn, the internet is a tricky business.

 

This description is taken straight from the horse’s mouth:

 

“Hardland/Heartland is an amorphous cluster of artists working to create an ongoing visual investigation of our own personal histories, cultural interactions and possible futures. Using intuition and collaboration, we have embraced multiple mediums and methods that allow us to present our findings, not as definite statements, but instead as a more pragmatic communication of ideas that can be built upon and developed over time. These results are pieced together to form a lexicon of personal symbolism that serves as an authentic record of our creative endeavors and interaction.”

Maija Luutonen, photography hide-and-seek

 

Please let's pretend, color photographs, 2006-2008

"Please let's pretend", color photographs, 2006-2008

I think I have a thing for photographs like Maija Luutonen’s lately and maybe that’s a reflection of my own need for indulgent escapism? I don’t know.

Technology…

Did you just awake from a twenty year coma? Then youre probably wondering where you can pick up a current issue of .info, a magazine dedicated to Mac computers way back when they were called “Amigas. Sorry dude. The nerds are dead, we killed all of them. But hey, cheer up! You can still see some knee slappin’ episodes of .info magazines Bryce: one of the  first comic strips created digitally.

Alvvino


Alvvino, Berlin based design/illustrator creates a style that seems long past. When i first peeked at his website I thought to myself “Classic!” Then I thought “no no, you’re just an intern here. You have no authority to make judgements like that” But the craftsmanship of these pieces are inevitable and their atmosphere is both pleasant and consuming.
