Color Collective is pretty much my new favourite.

Created as a colour resource guide for designers, the blog serves up some of the most stunning images, fashions and artists’ works alongside beautiful palettes.

Honestly I feel pretty silly that I hadn’t known about this site sooner.

[ Read: come up with the idea myself]

 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.

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

This is a movie bar-code. Every still frame from the movie like the one above Slumdog Millionaire is compressed into a single frame, creating this bar-code effect.

Love XI, Collage, 2006

When I first saw these images, I was rendered speechless.

British artist John Stezaker… what can I say… just amazing.

 

John Stezaker - Cinema 1 I   - The Approach

Cinema 1 I, Collage, 2005

Stezaker makes collages of old images–classic movie stills, vintage postcards and book illustrations–into new images.

I can’t even imagine the pain he must have felt cutting up old bromides–I was almost emotional looking at this work just thinking about destroying these images to create new ones.

John Stezaker - Mask LXV  - The Approach

Mask LXV, 2007

If you’re lucky enough to be in London right now he has an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery that you should go to and tell me all about so I can live vicariously through you (please).

 

*note: apparently  “Steaz,” “Steaze,” or “Steazy” has a variety of meanings according to more urban sources. I simply shortened the artist’s name because I wanted to sound gangster and clever, and I am not implying any other meaning by this hyphenation other than to be witty.

holidaze.

I said ‘Happy Christmas’ quite a bit the last four days and I’m kind of tired of it… so

‘Happy Holidays!’ instead.

(I always think of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley–“Happy Christmas Harry,” “Happy Christmas Ron.”)

The images above and the one below are of a holiday display that I saw in the San Juan Islands last winter.

I love them because the display is made completely out of recycled materials, and you know how I get all excited about recycle art.

The super secret how-to will be arriving sometime this week, so hold on to your hats.

Loving this music feature from Lullatone

The Raindrop Melody Maker allows you to compose your own melodies.

I love it because of the audio-visual effects.

Oh PS. If you hadn’t noticed… I changed my blog layout a bit for no reason. I just decided to organize a bit more, and now all of my lovely links are arranged by category. Enjoy!
