After all of the ridiculous press the Royal Wedding received, freelance illustrator Owen Davey was asked by Orange: The Feed, to create plate designs commemorating less-than-royal events happening to the general public.

Talk about rewarding mediocrity.

I wish I had one though.

These ethereal, constellation-like structures are the creations of Arnold Goron.

Though very different from the models I created in my high school chemistry class, the installations are actually considered molecular structures and are displayed alongside Isabel Marant’s designs.

These structures, formed out of wood and Styrofoam balls, have small motors connected to them so that they actually rotate around the clothing displays.

To see them in action visit Goron’s website.

Two weekends in a row J and I have been to the river.

Of course, I didn’t bring my camera to take pictures because J didn’t think it was safe to bring valuables into the canoe with us. He’s a smart man… so you can blame him for the lack of photographs.

This leaves the score: summer fun: 2 :: blog: 0

 Brooklyn artist Spencer Finch utilizes light and colour in his installations to re-create moments of “light”. Most of his pieces specify a certain time and place in which he is attempting to re-create the light of that specific moment.

I recently used Finch’s work as an inspiration for my science class that I teach to 2 year olds. Even as young as they were, the students really began to experiment and think about how light and colour effect the way we visually interact with our environment.

m.i.a.

I’ve definitely been flyin’ like paper these past few weeks as I’m sure everyone noticed by my drought of posts. (I wasn’t getting high like planes though, don’t judge me) Sometimes I’m just a terrible blogger, what can I say? Anyways, I’m back in business and I definitely don’t have a shortage of lovely things to share.

Brace yourselves, is all I have to say.
