Holy smokes Google Arts & Culture is amazing. You can virtually explore museums. My head is exploding! I know what I am doing with my kids tonight!

Yuni Kim Lang‘s hair piece made me look. Beautifully absurd.

Literature vs. Traffic

Literature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. Traffic

Luzinterruptus carried out one of their most popular installations Literature vs. Traffic in Toronto. The piece points out, in a very poetic way, the battle between pedestrians and vehicles going on in most of the world’s large cities.

Luzinterruptus wants literature to take over the streets and conquer public spaces, freely offering those passersby a traffic-free place which, for some hours, will succumb to the humble power of the written word.


Soviet Innerness

Soviet Innerness is a touching photo project showcasing forgotten interiors walls in former Soviet Bloc nations. Absolutely beautiful! So many stories that want to be told. Well done, Elena Amabili and Alessandro Calvaresi!

(This brings back memories: For my thesis in 1999, I created a 200 page photo book on the beauty in the mundane!)

Bunnie Reiss

I am dreaming of a pair of cosmic animal gloves by Bunnie Reiss on my living room walls. They’re hand painted and quite magical.


Green Rainbows


Absolutely loving these green watercolor rainbows by industry & alchemy. There are other colors as well.

Not So Good | Not So Bad

not so good not so bad

This Not So Good / Not So Bad box by Tina Berning made me look. I might start one of these myself. Also, what a talented illustrator.

Giant Marbles


Kosmosphaera is a Swiss labor of love between Jodoc Elmiger and Valérie Jacquemet. Together they create giant glass marbles, reminding me so much of my childhood in the Swiss mountains. How stunning would one of these look in my home?

(In case you’re in London, they are currently showing at Tent London T3 booth L10.)

Wage Islands

Wage Islands by Ekene Ijeoma is an interactive installation about wage and housing inequality in NYC. It’s a 3d topographic map of monthly housing costs submerged in water to show where New Yorkers can afford to live based on hourly wages.

Stone Backpack

This stone backpack by Jana Sternback is everything.

Moving: Vincent van Gogh Today

This is surprisingly moving: In an episode of Doctor Who from 2010, the Doctor and his companion Amy take Vincent van Gogh, who was not a commercially successful artist in his own lifetime, to the Musée d’Orsay to see an entire room filled with his paintings.

Glittering Salt Crystal Dress


This is what happens when you submerge a black gown for 2 months in the salt-rich waters of the Dead Sea. A beautiful project by Israeli artist Sigalit Landau.

I Wish I could Adopt This Sign:

I hugely admire Steve Powers‘ for his art and especially love this Downtown Brooklyn sign. The parking garage it is attached to is making room for more downtown Brooklyn condos, so, someone please give this a new home…

Ornitographies by Xavi Bou


Ornitograhpies by Xavi Bou are shapes created by flying birds, captured with single time frame photographs. Stunning.

I used to love live model drawing at university. Frédéric Forest’s Instagram feed makes me want to pick it back up.

Don’t we all feel like this guy at times? Beautiful etching by Valdas Misevičius.

Basic House

Basic House

Basic House by Martin Azua is a basic habitable volume; foldable, inflatable and reversible. Is it art? Is it architecture? I don’t care, it gives me joy.

Look Up

Look Up

Look Up is a participatory public art app that prompts New Yorkers to look away from their phones and into the street intersections to engage in the diversity and serendipity of the city.

Smoke Interventions


Created as a collaboration between photographers Isabelle Chapuis and Alexis Pichot, ‘The Blossom Project’ depicts colourful clouds of smoke emerging from evocative landscapes all around the globe.


Interesting Paint Job


This art installation made me look. I wouldn’t mind doing this in my apartment, painting half way and over my art. (Obviously, I would first go to the thrift store to replace my current art)

Italian artist Davide D’Elia‘s ‘Antivegetativa‘ installation transformed a Roman gallery into a bright aqua ship hull. Reminds me a lot of Oliver Jeffer’s dipped painting project.

Still-Lifes by Amanda Ringstad


These still-life by Amanda Ringstad made me look!



I would totally hang this Jellies print in my office.
