Album Cover art for Christian Metal group One Bad Pig’s Swine Flew. 80′s classic.
For their July issue which is dedicated to sex and the erotic, Wallpaper* tapped legendary art director Peter Saville and photographer Nick Knight to create and shoot the ultimate adult play pen. Here’s a little teaser to see how they got on.
More on Peter Saville
Saville designs textiles….
“‘horizon’ is a mix of sky based patterns and contemporary lighting effects. instead
of purely programmed effects, visitors are invited to interact and modify the patterns
of light. the installation is double sided so it affects both the street scene and the whole
interior of the gallery. it explores light vs. space and the effect that colour has on people
and their surroundings.”
It makes sense, doesn’t it? Olivia Munn is featured on the cover of the June/July issue of Playboy, and although she isn’t buck, we welcome it.
This work above is part of an edition of small canvases by Johannes Albers. Really nice looking work and surely of interest to any audiophile.
“With this series of one-off editions, Johannes Albers brings the TDK cassette tape back to life. In today’s modern, digital world of MP3s and iPods and compact discs, Albers celebrates the analogue, rewinding to a not-too-distant past where ‘mix-tapes’, unravelling cassette ribbon, and wow and flutter reigned supreme. Printed with ink on canvas, these editions reverberate with nostalgia, whilst boldly staking a claim in today’s popular culture.”
Tom Knox, rise above the rest. No Comply’s like no other.
“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.”
I have been meaning to put up a video I shot of this, since it is what I see on my daily commute to Manhattan. Looks like I don’t have to now. Originally created by Bill Brand in the seventies, the zoetrope was recently restored. Read about it at the NY Times.
