Beck’s Music Inspired Art 2009

Beck’s asked 10 Illustrators including McBess, Hellovon, Kid Acne, Si Scott, and Laura Jackaman to re-think the best albums of the last 40 years (gleaned from Pitchfork lists). Now the project is open to the public to contribute and complete the collection of 100.

Head over here to get involved.

    awesome, i like the interpol one!

  • Maartend

    just entered. right up my alley, thanks!

  • sr

    let it be cover rules!

  • This is friggin’ awesome.
    Beck rocks.

    • Monika

      agree!

  • Hah.
    Then I clicked a link and what did I find…not Beck, but Beck’s the beer…shame on me.

    • haha yea, my grammar in the opening sentence isn’t THAT bad

  • Courtney

    Awesome! love the beatles and interpol ones!

  • aw if only they went back 50 years…’Let It Be’ was definitely not The Beatles’ best work! but as for the album cover…the reworked illustration makes me sad. 🙁 the artwork was supposed to be stark, like “this is the end.” and that illustration is kind of…a joke. and Yoko is in there, too. ridiculous…

    Interpol and Fleet Foxes, however, look good!

  • Wow nice. I like all of them, but I like the last one best. It almost looks like there’s someone with a big nose, a long arm, big head amongst the twigs, and birds. The first one is also nice. Why am I being so selective? They’re all wicked.

    Anyone else see anything as described above?

  • No, no Jeff it is not, tis my reading and over excitement that got the best of me there.

    The Antony and the Johnsons one would be my fave as well…save for the fact that they spelled it wrong…ouch. Great illustration though.

  • Jls

    The Smiths, Fleet Foxes, AND Interpol?!
    Sweet, Sweet Love.

    I love “The Queen is Dead” and “Let it Be”

  • Favourite has to be “Let It Be”.

    Some of the other designs are a bit more iconic but it’s just so fun. On top of that, it’s reminded me of that excellent Beatles animation that kicks off their recent Guitar Hero game.

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
