cornfield

with one comment

I am always a huge fan of repeated elements, repeated to such an extent it takes over the idea, the execution, the space. Everything. Ryuji Nakamura’s Cornfield has precisely that magic, taking over an entire gallery with a thin latticed structure made out of paper. via Designboom

I love these surreal shoes by Lernert & Sander!

To help celebrate the launch of their epic new Shoe Galleries, Selfridges called on us to create
11 sculptural installations that take iconic shoe design to surreal extremes.
We have taken the most mundane of household domestic appliances and comedically refashioned
them into divine creations. A humorous take on fashion as an ideal escape from the daily grind.

With a purpose to rid the world of bad taste so that only good taste can prevail, the museum derdinge in berlin collects and exhibits items of bad taste. Head over to core77 for a huge gallery and write-up on each item. Below I picked some of my favourites!

the fourth plinth

leave a comment »

I love Antony Gormley and now more so. The empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square has held many exhibits but this, I feel, would be the most engaging yet. Called One & Other, Anthony invites you, me, anybody to participate. Fly me to London please!

“Antony Gormley, the man behind Britain’s best-loved sculpture The Angel of the North, is inviting the people of the UK to occupy the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London. Every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break beginning on 6th July, a different person will make the Plinth their own – an uninterrupted succession of 2400 volunteers creating a unique portrait of the UK in the 21st century.”
