Knyttan

December 22nd, 2014

A few weeks ago, I discovered Knyttan, a knit-on-demand start-up in London. They offer sweaters, scarves and blanket scarves in a whole range of colors, made from Merino wool. But the cool thing about it, is that you can design them yourself starting from a many different patterns. Some of the them were designed by Nicolas Sassoon, studio Moniker and Studio Moross.
It’s no surprise that I had to design one myself, so here’s my scarf. I love it! When I ever make to London, I’ll definitely get a sweater too.

This was the design that I sent to the “factory”.

The scarf is really comfy, the label adds a nice touch to it.

Here you can see the design versus the knitted result. Somehow it got mirrored during production, I guess you wouldn’t want that when you’re designing a sweater.

Window

January 21st, 2014

Every few months, I google some of my favorite artists, just to check what they’ve been up to lately. One of them is Roman Signer. The best way to find his latest artworks, is to visit the website of the galleries which represent him. Apparently he has an exhibition at Galerie Barbara Weiss at the moment, just around the corner here in Berlin.
So here’s a new installation by Roman: Window. Playful as always.

Concentric Selections of Gradient

January 20th, 2014

I’ve been a fan of Jan Robert Leegte for years, his latest website: “Concentric Selections of Gradient“. It has a grey gradient and marching ants, what’s there not to like?

Summer

August 22nd, 2013

A few weeks ago, Olia Lialina wrote me an email. She wanted me to host .gif file, of course I said yes without asking any questions. I’m a big fan of her work and you might have seen her a .gif before, she’s the Animated GIF Model. 2 weeks ago I received the .gif file and an .html file and it became clear what she was up to. The .gif file was just one frame of an animated gif and several websites would host one and would link to each other. The result: Summer by Olia Lialina. (I’m honored to be part of this list.)

Your Waste of Time

May 15th, 2013

An other module of the EXPO 1: New York exhibition was the sculpture “Your Waste of Time” by Olafur Eliasson. He placed several massive pieces of ice that broke off from Iceland’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, in a big room that was cooled down below 0°. The oldest ice in the glacier is estimated to have originated some 800 years ago. Of course the power needed to do this, comes from solar panels that were installed especially on the roof of the MoMA PS1.
You can experience this sculpture at the MoMA PS1 in NYC till September 2nd.

475 VOLVER

May 15th, 2013

I was quite happy to find a video piece by Cinthia Marcelle at the EXPO 1: New York exhibition.

One JCB machine goes through the form of an infinite symbol transporting dirt from one side to the other and then repeats the movement from that side back to the other, like a kind of enlarged sand filled hour glass that never stops rotating.

You might also like this other work by her: Fountain 193.

Rain Room

May 15th, 2013

The Rain Room by rAndom International is an interactive installation which is also part of the EXPO 1: New York exhibition. The Rain Room is a 100 square metre field of falling water that visitors may walk through and experience how it might feel to control the rain. 10 people can be tracked by the system and everywhere they go, the rain will stop. It’s really a magical experience. You can visit the Rain Room at the MoMA in NYC till July 28th.

In the first 2 photos you can see a dance performance by the choreographer Wayne McGregor.
