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.
“Healing Tool” is part of Brian Kane’s ongoing series “Art for Commuters.” Designed specifically for people driving along Interstate 93 and 95 in Massachusetts, the installation is meant to provide an unexpected moment of beauty. The billboard displays images which change hourly and daily. At night for instance, high resolutions images of the moon are displayed in relation to the actual moon phases. More images from Kane’s project and short video below!
Yung Cheng Lin’s recent photographs feature her usual precision and extreme contortions while taking on the issue of female body modification. Each image contains a persistent red string, digitally manipulated to look like it’s been threaded through the women’s skin. See more of Lin’s work below.
