A Brief Interview with INSA

We’ve been following the work of INSA for years now. The UK-based artist has gone stylishly from graff and galleries, to heels and museums.  INSA opened a show at Fifty24SF in San Francisco last week, we caught a couple moments of his time.

The Standard Hollywood

Located on the Sunset Strip, The Standard Hollywood is a simple retreat from the flashiness out on the street. Gorgeous views, and a lo-stress vibe make it an extremely inviting option when thinking about where to stay in LA.

BotoxCloud by SAQ

On view at Zirkumflex in Berlin is a pretty cool light and object installation by SAQ. BotoxCloud takes form utilizing different shapes and variants of paper models that each catch light in different ways depending on how the clusters are formed. In alignment with the exhibition, the two firms have collaborated to create an edition of 500 cut and fold prints of the paper models used in the installation. More info on that, and the project here.
