Fan of Fans

It's so refreshing to see this creative installation by all time favorite dutch design studio Raw Color for Lynfabrikken BOX - an exhibition room with its own set of curatorial principles by LYNfabrikken in Aarhus, Denmark. Their idea was to unite colour and the element of motion and it's dynamic structure, and they choose the electric fan as their tool to unite these qualities. Placed on a podium a group of fans showed their different states by performing a choreography blending colour and motion. Fans should definately come in all shapes and colours - like a lot of other things...

Kind of Maiken Bendt-ish...

... with the robes and all, was my friends comment on a figurine by Louise Hindsgavl. Oh yeah, I replied, but the truth is, that I've never heard of the danish artist Maiken Bendt before, so I googled. And I found her, and I liked what I found. The colour palette, the patchwork feel and all the ordinary things put together in a new context - she just got herself a new fan. Hope you like it too! Thanks to Ditte at The Nordic Courier.

Time Stamps

I'm totally in love with these brilliant and quite inspiring time stamps by Maker of Things (as he call himself) Eric Trine. He calls them time stamps because the elements are a myriad of things in his studio – client projects, personal projects, plants, comissioned furniture etc. – all within arms reach. Visual studies only existing in their documentation – and in Ongoing Arrangements. So clever!

I scream you scream we all scream for icecream

I know it ain't really season for icecream right now being winter and all, but I suddenly felt the urge when I stumbled over this exquisite icecream packaging for Gorky Park Icecreams by graphic designer Anastasia Genkina. Dazzling, bright colours and wonderful, clean pattern, and if the taste is just half as good as the design – I'm of to Moscow! Via Good Design Makes Me Happy.

Ladylike Legs

Fantastic surreal watercolour paintings by Tokyo-based artist Akiko Kobayakawa. The cute, innocent animals with their sexy ladylike legs has a surreal and yet very realistic feel and I love the delicate, poetic colours. In her work Akiko Kobayakawa likes to combine different things like beauty and ugliness, male and female, animals and humans, and she explores the boundary between them and makes it ambiguous. See more work here and buy some here. Via Spoon and Tamago.

Looking and Touching

Elisa Noguera Lopez is a London based artist mainly working with photography, because of its ability to create images which contain multiple disjunctive narratives. In her photos objects and living things are stripped of instrumentality, functionality and identity, and she is fascinated by surfaces, shapes, materials and gestures as well as the relationship between looking and touching. I totally wants to keep looking and touching! Via Little Paper Planes.
