Benjamin Oliver, a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art’s Design Interactions program explores the space between our everyday experiences, inventing prototypes that can give participants a way to experience all new senses. I love the approach Benjamin took in framing his experiments – By creating photographs with such rich narrative, the artist leaves behind a series of bizzarre rooms in which these sensory objects supposedly underwent a round of testing.
If you’ve ever renovated a home you know how challenging it is to find floor coverings that fit in with your Eames Eiffel chairs and Eli Walker paintings.

That’s where Stonepeak Ceramics comes in, they offer Italian quality tiles made in the USA using advanced technology to reduce waste and even carry a Greenguard certification.

Paris based photographer Ben Sandler’s photography series feel like small freeze frame shots of instantaneous events. I love the architectural detail of each shot, its environment holding just as much weight as it’s action, and the humor behind the predicaments of each character.
Whether it’d be through art or design, France is the top destination to go to for any interested in construction and ingenuity with an urge for color experimention. Ill-Studio (founded in 2007) truly belongs to this cognition. Ill represents a collective of talented individuals headed by Léonard Vernhet and Thomas Subreville under one pretty ‘sick’ name. The group experiments with shapes (a combination of both geometric and organic), thin and thick lines, and bold color saturation. Art-direction, photography, design, motion design, and typography are their greatest abilities; to describe the least.
Ever see something bizarre during your daily routine? It may make you laugh, cry, or make you scratch your head. Later in the day you try to tell friends about what you saw but somehow something gets lost in the translation. Patrick Tsai’s Modern Times series manages to capture those very moments for all of us to enjoy.
I’m happy to have been recently turned on to Chicago based artist, Heidi Norton’s, photography/sculptural work. There’s a really nice balance of representational elements and abstraction, very forward thinking. Her first West coast solo endeavor, Between New Moons, opens up this weekend HungryMan Gallery in SF.
