Seen via Creative Review: Branding studio Faust has created an immersive, tactile experience for children at Nick Cave’s exhibit in Denver. The Sojourn exhibition features a floor-to-ceiling felt wall and felt silhouette mannequins that kids can embellish and re-embellish with colorful cut-outs, as well as kids punching bags and a super-sized projection of Cave’s film Drive-By. See more here. If you’re in Denver, go here for info on the exhibition.
Visit Brain Pickings to see the beautiful illustration of Barthes’ dislikes, also beautifully done by Lynore Avery.
I’m loving the warmth and delicacy of Valerie Hammond’s work, particularly her wax drawings. There’s a ton to look through, go kick off your week with something beautiful!
I’ve seen this illustration a few places, most recently this morning on Pinterest. And it’s kind of why I mostly hate Pinterest. Someone shared this with no attribution (fine, they didn’t know who it was by), but did include a URL. The problem? The URL went here, which also doesn’t tell you who actually produced the work. It’s an inspiration site, so I guess that means we don’t care about who actually does anything (ugh), and their attribution URL is simply this. I finally searched for the file name I’d seen (“rapture”) and the word elephant and found it featured in Eye Magazine with Stuart Patience’s name associated. From there, I was able to find his portfolio site, which is amazing, and you should go look at all his work because holy crap that’s an annoying experience if you’re him (I assume).
