Wallpaper magazine

“asked designers – from students to superstars – to find the tart hiding in every type and create their own graphic numbers. Along with a selection in the magazine, all 450 cards can be viewed here. They will also be on display at KK Outlet, London from 22nd to 29th June.”

“Tart cards are the means by which many London prostitutes advertise their services. Step into almost any central London phone box and you can contemplate up to 80 cards inviting you to be tied, teased, spanked or massaged.”

Oona bench and Christopher Chair by Charles Constantine

christopher-chair-charles-constantine

After previewing his work last week, Charles Constantine sent over some images of his two latest pieces.  Very nice.

The Oona bench and Christopher Chair (above) are part of the “a family affair” series.  The original chair, LS ( now Leefa)  was made of solid maple, and was primarily an indoor chair.  The second chair in the series, Christopher, is an outdoor chair made of aluminum and HDPE.  The Christopher chair is cheap(er) to produce and is 100% recyclable.  The welds are left on the chair to show off the skill of the fabricator, Christopher Williams.

you work for them interpretation DVD

youworkforthemdvd

I remember when computer art animations were all the rage back in the 90’s. It’s now 2009 and we still like them. You Work For Them has created a DVD that explores sound nature, motion and time. Check out the trailer on there site and buy it there. Here’s a little blurb from them, it looks like it has won a few awards as well. I have to say it’s pretty relaxing to listen to and watch.

“A work of art that explores the relationship between nature, motion and sound, The Interpretation takes us on a languid journey through a slowly flourishing forest. Hinting at vague memories of microbiology and rotating through a cool organic spectrum of…”
