YES / NO

markus raetz yes no sculpture

I hugely admire Markus Raetz‘s artwork. This YES/NO sculpture is one of my favorites. Just like in real life, depending on your perspective, the answer can be YES or NO.

Hakanai

Hakanaï / trailer from Adrien M / Claire B on Vimeo.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to enjoy a Hakanaï performance at BAM. It was a stunning visual firework. I wish I could see it another time. Or even better, I’d love to call one of those interactive projection cubes my own. You know, to play with during a coffee break at work… You should check their schedule to see if they’re performing in your city anytime soon.

OK Go + Pilobolus

I took Ella (8) to see Pilobolus at BAM yesterday. We *LOVED* the performance. The last piece was based on the above music video with OK GO. It totally messes with your head and our perception of gravity. Enjoy the full interactive experience at allisnotlo.st.

Trust me…

I am fine

I am fine, she said, burning the candle at both ends.

CreativeMornings: Lucien Zayan

Lucien Zayan is one of my all-time favorite people here in NYC. Last month he spoke on the theme of UGLY at our CreativeMornings/NewYork.

Hard to believe, but it was his first time speaking in public. He won the 200+ crowd over instantly. You could literally feel everyone’s heart open up. In his talk, Lucien is telling the story of The Invisible Dog, the artist space in Brooklyn that I am lucky to call my new work home in another 36 days.

The world needs more people like Lucien, who see beauty where others can’t. NYC is a better place because of him.

The Sketchbook Project

Sketchbook project

Are you someone that uses sketchbooks? Don’t you ever wish you could flip through other artists’ sketchbooks, or that yours could be seen by other people? That’s exactly what the Sketchbook project makes possible; it’s a massive, global, collaborative art project. It’s a crowd-sourced library that features 31,703 artists’ books contributed by creative people from 135+ countries. (<-----!!!!!)

Brooklyn Art Library is their storefront exhibition space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY where The Sketchbook Project collection is on view to the public. Or, you can browse a selection of their books online.

How fantastic is this? Totally going to check out the library with my kids this weekend.

Michael Sydney Moore

Michael Sydney MooreMIchael Sydney Moore

I just stumbled upon Michael Sydney Moore‘s work. It’s breathtaking. Michael is a 23 year old oil painter working out of his studio in London. His most recent work is centered around high-realism in portraiture. Can you believe the above portrait is a painting?

His work is so labor intensive that he only gets to produce 8-10 pieces a year. I admire Michael’s ability to focus and his endurance.

Cheap Art

cheap art

Here’s an interesting new project by the folks of Krrb: Cheap Art features local classifieds dedicated to buying and selling artwork priced under $1,000. The idea is based off the Bread and Puppet Cheap Art Manifesto. The folks behind Cheap Art believe art should be available to everyone, not just the privileged. The ‘Cheap’ in ‘Cheap Art’ is not meant to degrade the value of art but rather celebrate the everyday consumption of it. They believe walls don’t need to be decorated with mass-produced prints from Ikea, but rather original works created by our neighbors. Check it out: buycheapart.com

Lady Gaga’s Flying Dress

Created for Lady Gaga, the Volantis is the world’s first flying dress and heralds the beginning of a new era for human flight, says one of its designers Benjamin Males.

It made me laugh.

Custom Made Hand Mosaics by Anne Derian

Mosaics, Anne Derian

Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.
