Till Krautkrämer’s Meatwater

..

Meatwater, a line of 60 plus meat-inspired beverages and photographic prints, is currently showing at 303 Grand in Williamsburg but its depth may be best explored at Dinnerinabottle.com. Varieties like Italian Sausage, Tandoori Chicken and Wiener Schnitzel have received raves from beverage trade magazines (none of which found a press release with quotes from a “Governor Rose Selavy” suspect) and a writer for the LA Times described it as “the most disturbing thing I have seen on the internet in a month.”

..

Queries about the cost of an actual bottle are met with a winking “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it,” but for a lucky few who make it to the closing party Aug. 22nd at 303 Grand @ 7pm, tall glasses of Pork Dumpling may be on offer.

..

Krautkrämer in his own words on what Meatwater is, and what Meatwater can never be.

Akira Nishitake

Akira Nishitake

I came across the works of Akira Nishitake and fell in love with his illustrations (his website is pretty fun too). Akira Nishitake is a Japanese designer and illustrator. He explores a wide range of work styles including painting, drawing manga, and font design. I don’t know too much about him because his whole site is in Japanese, but definitely check him out.

Rave flyers in the 90′s

B/D Special Post: 90s rave flyers

Like how a lot of things “aren’t they way they used to be” these days, rave culture and visual cues that go along with it, aren’t the way they used to be (there’s a flyer from a more recent event after the jump). A one sentence summary of rave history: In the late 1980s, the word ‘rave’ was adopted to describe the subculture that grew out of the acid house movement. Activities were related to the party atmosphere of Ibiza, a Mediterranean island frequented by British and German youth on vacation.

What I think is awesome is that there are so many varieties of design approaches in these flyers- heavily illustrated, minimal typography, photographical. You can’t even tell that all these served the same purpose, whereas rave flyers today basically all look the same and probably use the same 10 steps in a Photoshop actions bundle (any readers have one?).Because they are minimal, they would have translated well to posters, banners, or even tees. I think the watering down of this scene could be comparable to the punk scene- degraded and chessified in both sound and visual design. I don’t know, this topic is definitely open to discussion- feel free to comment!

I’ve never been a huge Ryan McGinley fan but the last few bodies of work from him are just amazing. The Moonmilk series is no exception featuring some of the most dramatic, beautiful, and out of this world photography I’ve seen in a while. I’m officially impressed!

Thanks to Tofer for the link.

Laurie Simmons

Laurie Simmons

I’m quite excited to see new work from Laura Simmons . Glamor magazine asked some of America’s top female artists to define the concept of glamor, and these images are the result of Laurie Simmons’. She has stayed true to her hand made house wife aesthetic and really made this project her own. I like how these images juxtapose pornographic images with a child’s doll house, her critic on an overtly sexual society within the concept of glamor comes through very well.
