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