    Times like this… words would be nice. It appears many of these are ritual dance costumes. Part wearable sculpture + part performance?

    I’m at an absolute loss. These are so insanely ALIVE. 5 is my favorite, I love all the colorful ones too obviously but something about the guy just covered in pieces from the earth, I’m so in love with it!

    SUCH great use of color.

    Do people like the photography or the fabric? The document or the message? It sparks some interesting thoughts/comments.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      that’s an interesting point – for me, i think the images have been expertly captured by a talented photographer.

      i have seen maaany totally dull photos taken at the most vibrant festivals/parades

      • http://www.kowalabearhugs.com Matt K

        I agree. When viewing Phyllis’s portfolio, a consistent approach and technique emerges. Photography and current screen based digital medium can often be perceived as ‘unreal’ or a phenomenon. The capture permits a comprehensive musing and the opportunity for interaction or personal narrative. A good curatorial choice for the graphic happy booooooom visitor.

Artist JR Makes the Louvre’s Glass Pyramid Disappear

JR3

Photo by @davidg16er

 
You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

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!

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.
