American artist Hollis Brown Thornton is dealing with themes of memory and perception. Thornton uses modern cultural artifacts ranging from family photos to pop culture imagery in order to illustrate the modern relevance of these things from the past. Here's a bunch of drawings using permanent marker on paper from the series VHS. Love it!
I like the paintings by South Korean based artist Lee Ji Su – especially the Bleed at the nose series. Strangely fascinating because it seems so natural – almost like everyone in South Korea has a permanent bleed at the nose...;0)? Have a strangely fascinating weekend!

If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Very interesting web-art-project where anyone can participate by taking a photograph of exactly what they would bring with them if their house was burning. Via Juxtapoz.

Absolutely stunning work by young Swiss textile designer, Stéphanie Baechler. First she makes collages out of clothes and photographs them, then she makes new collages out of the photos, then she transfers that onto fabric and finally she styles the fabric on a model and takes new photos. Easy, peasy or...?Via Madame Hervé.
