Fruits and Flowers (2014-2015) is a striking, and unsettling, series by American photographer, Kathryn Parker Almanas. Check out more images below!
The design for the new Vancouver Art Gallery has been unveiled! Designed by acclaimed Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, the proposed gallery will be 230 feet tall and have a total floor area of 310,000 square feet (85,000 of which will be dedicated exhibition space). There will be a library and 350-seat theatre, and it will all be primarily made of wood! While the design is impressive, the project is expected to cost $350 million. That’s not only $50 million more than expected but far from the $73 million raised so far.
I personally love the building design; the scale, the striking silhouette, and the carefully considered windows in the upper levels rather than yet another all glass addition to the boring Vancouver skyline. I just don’t know how our city is going to afford it (I hope we can). If it is indeed built, it will be Herzog & de Meuron’s first building in Canada. More renderings of the proposed design below!
Amazing series featuring intricately braided cornrows by painter, So Yoon Lym. Born in South Korea and raised in Kenya, Uganda, and the United States, Lym spent her formative years studying under exiled Korean artist, Ung No Lee. See more images from “The Dreamtime” below!
Incredible installations by Australian artist Tanya Schultz who creates work under the name Pip & Pop. Made using things like coloured sugar, Schultz’s ultra-colourful and dreamy work explores themes of abundance, pleasure, and fairytale-esque wish-fulfillment. Check out more images below!
New York-based artist Miya Ando’s solo show, Sora/Ku (Sky/Emptiness), just opened at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Hong Kong and it will travel to the Singapore location of the gallery, October 29th.
Ando is known for her subtle works on metal; layered abstract paintings on varied surfaces created using heat, sandpaper, grinders, and acid. It’s obvious these images aren’t going to do these works justice. More images below.
At some point during the summer Soundcloud decided to remove most of my mixes from their site (I’ve since removed the rest). It’s a bummer because I wasn’t trying to make any money off of the music, I was just doing it for the fun of sharing something with you guys!
A few people noticed the mixes disappeared and tweeted about getting the mp3s so I’ve made a zip of pretty much all the mixes that you can download here.
Just a heads up, the last two are more rappy and have a lot of bad language. The image above is by photographer Sophie Tajan who let me use her image for one of the mixes.
I mix the music using Ableton which is pretty much cheating but it’s really fun. I might make a new one and share it through a service like Mixcloud. In the meantime grab those mixes; I don’t know how long I’ll keep them up, and probably won’t share them ever again.
