Instagram Takeover: Linsey Levendall

linsey levendall

This week the artist in charge of our Instagram account is Linsey Levendall. He’s currently living in Saskatchewan but originally from South Africa. I didn’t realise until I read his bio that he works closely with The Black Heart Gang. If you don’t know their work, watch “The Tale of How”, I saw them speak at F5 in New York several years ago and was completely blown away.

Linsey’s work was off my radar until recently but he’s quickly become one of my favourite artists. The detail in his work is kinda insane.

Please give him a warm welcome as he posts for the next 7 days. Follow along on our Instagram and make sure you follow his too!

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
