Here’s a beautiful selection of images from the most recent rodeo in Los Angeles, by photographers Shaughn Crawford and John Dubois. Have a look at the images below.

Time Collapsed Video: 20 Minutes of Kite Flying

Kite

The 6th instalment of The San Diego Studies (a series of shorts that collapse time to highlight the unobservable aspects of the city filmmaker Cy Kuckenbaker lives and works – previously featured here and here), is beautifully simple. After suffering a shoulder injuriy, Kuckenbaker started flying kites at the beach in lieu of surfing or swimming. Unlike the other shorts in the series, this video is just Kuckenbaker, his kites, and a glimpse of Tijuana in the background. Check out “20 Minutes of Kite Flying Time Collapsed” below!

Björk Collaborator: Artist James Merry

james-merry01

Came across this great i-D article on artist James Merry who has been working with Björk for the past six years. He loves embroidery, so when he found himself stuck in New York missing Iceland earlier this year he decided to “fertilize” some of his clothing. He embroidered a glacier flower and moss onto an old Nike sweatshirt, and soon after that he’d completed a Fila mushroom.

Have a look at his work below.
