These are just a few artsy goodies that I couldn’t bear to relegate to a facebook status update, as The Jealous Curator puts it, this is “artwork that “made me jealous”… in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way”. Be prepared for the ultimate dose of ‘I wish I’d thought of that’.
Kumi Yamashita – Artist [Constellation]
Yamashita’s project ‘Constellation’ consists of a series of incredible portraits, with each one made on a wooden board painted white, with hundreds of nails and a single, unbroken piece of thread.
The artist has also created portraits of based around shadows, and rubbings of peoples’ personal credit cards. See more here: http://www.kumiyamashita.com/
Emmanuelle Moureaux – Designer
Let me insert a bit of colour into your dreary December day with Moureaux, whether it’s contributing to a Wallpaper* handmade exhibition or hanging thousands of paper dividers from a ceiling in Tokyo, she ensures bright colours are never too garish.
Jee Young Lee – Artist [State of Mind]
Young Korean artist Jee Young Lee has created a series of fantastical images, based around her studio in Seoul, which haven’t been photoshopped in any way.
“For weeks , sometimes months, she creates the fabric of a universe born from her mind within the confines of her 3 x 6 m studio. She does so with infinite minutiae and extraordinary patience, in order to exclude any ulterior photographic alteration.” – Opinion Gallery
Tadao Cern – Photographer [Comfort Zone]
We’ve all seen them
Real people – real stories.
I spent this summer on various beaches taking pictures of strangers in their ‘Comfort Zone’. These photos are not staged and every single detail in them tells us a different story about ourselves.
Tim Noble & Sue Webster – Artists [Shadow Sculptures]
Remember when you tried to made shadows with your hands as a kid? Why didn’t I think of using the trash…
The Generous Store – Anthon Berg
If you liked the airline video which has gone viral this week spreading the festive cheer, then you’ll appreciate the sentiment behind Danish chocolatier Anthon Berg’s ‘Generous Store’. The first and only chocolate shop where the only rate of exchange is generosity; think Nike’s 2012 Sweat Campaign, but less effort.
