The Rain Room is coming to the MoMa on May 12th and it definitely warrants a quick visit to NYC. While it falls right at the start of the Together Fest (you have no idea how much this has taken over our household and studio) as well as the lead up to our wedding (eeek), I'm going to try my hardest to get down and experience it! more here...
Speaking of, I NEED to update this blog with some wedding news – coming soon!
What a great way to add some sparkle to your city – Paige Smith (A Common Name) has been geode-bombing all around Los Angeles. Check out her process below, while prepping an installation for The Standard Hotel. Love it.
Have long been a fan of Russian artists, Leonid Tishkov's series, Private Moon. In the past ten years, Leonid has photographed his moon everywhere from The Arctic, Paris, New Zealand, Austria, Taiwan... and most recently China. Man, doesn't travelling the world with your own private moon sound like such an incredible journey?
Speaking of your own private moon, I got a bit ambitious this weekend and rearranged all the art in our house – moving prints from room to room, putting some away for a bit and bringing some old favorites out to play– and am excited to see my favorite moon print, La Luna, (and ILY) playing a big role above our bed now!
Am also itching to bring a bunch of prints to our clients, Frantic Framers, soon – especially my Northern Constellations print by Brainstorm (below) and my Illustrated Solar System print by the Geekery (still in packing tube lol). Have seemingly started hoarding solar system prints for a someday baby room – including the little solar system mobile silkscreen below on the right :)
"love me - I'm trying", a new series by Maxime Ballesteros
love me - I'm trying puruses something which is a constant in my work, the relationship one upkeeps with death, from a distance. In other words the way one stays alive. Constructing a perfect house and protecting a perfect car, sculpting a body, getting naken in front of strangers and getting naked together
Just trolling through Liz's always-impressive Weekend Wrap-Up (holy wow – so many great exhibits in Boston this month) and clicked through to read more about a photo from a series called People vs Places. Come to find out, it's a project by two photographers, all documented on their blog.
This is a photographic collaboration between photographers Timothy Burkhart and Stephanie Bassos. This double exposure project allows us to step back from having full control of the image making process and trust in one another while allowing coincidences to happen naturally on film. Stephanie exposes a full roll of 35mm film of only "people," and Timothy reloads the film again into the same camera, to imprint only "places" and locations to the same roll. These images are all the end result of our ongoing series and are unedited negatives straight from the camera.
