Poetry Bombing with Agustina Woodgate

Agustina Woodgate has been going into thrift stores and secretly sewing poems inside the clothes. I want to marry her. I previously posted her hair sculptures here. Watch the video below!

  • Absolutely brilliant! New level

  • love the guts involved!

  • Love it! Kind of reminds me of the movie “Elling” where the main character would put his poetry in sauerkraut packages.

  • katy

    love this!

  • we just showed her in our last show at GARFO Art Center in Salt Lake! her rugs are awesome too.

  • Well, I haven’t seen this one before! When I read what this post was about, I was thinking of stitched lettering on the clothes but this is a much better idea as it’s not affecting anything about the clothing, simply adding what looks like an additional label but with something much more interesting written on it – who could be annoyed at receiving a short and sweet little poem with their items?

    • yea i like that it is an intervention that is in no way negative

  • hahaha! that’s awesome… wonder if she ever takes stuff in the dressing room to sew.

    • i was thinking the same thing! would be easier!

  • Thanks everyone! Its been a lot of fun! and thanks a lot for posting

    • you are the best agustina!

  • lapetitefaon

    so cute! I’ve found poems left in library books but I do like that there is something more permanent to these pieces than a paper which would be easily discarded without even a pause, brilliant!

  • moni trucco

    agus cada dia te admiro mas! recien ahora me doy cuenta lo que hiciste. vas al thrift store buscando una pilcha y en lo que elegis, te encontras conque un hada buena te dejo escrito algo lindo, para el alma.una carica con palabras. besos, la suegri.

  • omgggggg girl crushhhhh! how amazingly creative

  • <3

  • Ewa

    Wow! So brilliant and creative. I love this project too <3

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
