Michael Clark


I’ll be the first to admit that I know absolutely nothing about dance, especially when it comes to ballet. I am, however, a huge Fall fan, which led me to these videos of choreography by Michael Clark, a British dancer who famously shook up the modern dance world by staging avant-garde productions often set to experimental or post-punk music. These clips come from a 1988 ballet called “I Am Curious, Orange” which was scored entirely by The Fall. As far as I can tell, there hasn’t been much proper documentation done of this work, but these YouTube clips, taken from Charles Atlas’ long out of print film Hail the New Puritan will have to suffice.

Peter Buchanan-Smith


Peter Buchanan-Smith is a New York-based graphic designer whose clients include Isaac MIzrahi, Paper Magazine, Brian Eno & David Byrne, and more. I particularly enjoy his clever book covers. He also inexplicably runs a company called Best Made Co. which exclusively produces $300 painted axes.

I’m loving these carved magazines by artist Nate Page . Page uses methods of drawing and assemblage to create these paper landscapes. It’s such a simple and powerful idea! I’m a big fan of this series, but some here at Beautiful/Decay think it looks like “bad sand art…” but I’d have to disagree, at the very least it’s ‘cool’ sand art.

Patty Chang


In Patty Chang’s video art piece, “In Love”, she makes out with her mom and dad… I am horrified. I literally squirmed through the entirety of the video. I don’t really know what to say about this… all I know is that I feel like crying and I don’t know why.
