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…”

Papermag’s rebranding america

geoff-mcfetridge-paper-mag

This is a very cool editorial project that is in the current issue of Paper. Founder Kim Hastreiter asked 15 luminaries (Alex Bogusky, Dan Wieden, Ivan Chermayeff, Kevin Roberts, Andy Spade, Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Peter Buchanan-Smith, Steve Powers, Chris Johanson, Jonathan Horowitz, Mike Mills, Geoff McFetridge, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Alex Kalman) to create ads that would help redefine America’s identity.

She writes…
“HOW WOULD YOU REBRAND AMERICA??? (we certainly need it desperately!) How would you make people love us again? How would you change our brand image? Our perception abroad? How could you project our future to our citizens? If America had a new ad campaign, what would it look like?”
The answers are engaging.
