    The first two remind me of canyons except cool colored. There is a familiar feeling that is disorted through texture, composition, and scale, but is still detectable.

    my olfactory glands were instantly triggered to recall the scent of my favorite local thrift store. i wonder if the gallery smells like a second hand shop… love this work!

    Ha i saw his red sweater tower at Art Basel Miami last year. Super detailed folding going on there. It was so neat and each corner was perfect, not one thing out of order.

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon


Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!

This year’s lineup of speakers includes Brett Wickens (of design studio Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (who writes about design for International New York Times and frieze) kicking off the opening conference on June 2nd. June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
