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.
Kevin Bauman started the project 10 years ago, photographing abandonment in Detroit (a city experiencing a mass exodus of people). The project has grown from there, resulting in a series of hauntingly beautiful images.
This is a mini documentary featuring the Spanish brand peSeta in conjunction with the New Museum of New York chronicling the union of two mechanical lovers: a bicycle and a sewing machine. The result was this sweet film and 15 lovely bicycle caps (which can only be found at the New Museum shop–235 Bowery, NYC). Megafaun‘s The Longest Day was a beautiful feature in the film as well.
It almost compels me to go out and ride a bike. Almost.
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.
