Decode: Digital Design Sensations

November 26th, 2009

Decode: Digital Design Sensations is an upcoming exhibition at Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The exhibition will show the latest developments in digital and interactive design, from small screen based graphics to large-scale installations. The exhibition will explore three themes: Code as a Raw Material, Interactivity and The Network. You will be able to see work by Daniel Brown, Golan Levin, Daniel Rozin, Simon Heijdens, Trioka, Robert Hodgin, … I guess it’s quite clear that I’ll have to go to London between 8 December 2009 and 11 April 2010. But till then I’ll keep myself busy with the opensource digital identity of the exhibition created by Karsten Schmidt. You can download it here and start playing with it. If you submit your version of the identity, it’s possible that it will appear on the digital screens of the London Underground.

STAGES

July 14th, 2009

STAGES is exhibition initiated by Lance Armstrong and Nike to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer. 20 renowned artists produced work inspired by Lance and his fight against cancer. Although I’m very sceptical about the whole cycling sport (or any professional sport for that matter), the cause and the artwork deserve some publicity. The exhibition opens this Friday July 17th at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, France.

Here are a few of the artworks:

Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris

July 12th, 2009

Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris is a study depicting the stylistic diversity found in Parisian graffiti tags. Evan Roth photographed over 2400 graffiti tags in Paris and archived, tagged and sorted them by letter. Then he filtered out the 10 most used letters (A,E,I,K,N,O,R,S,T and U) and for each of them he isolated eighteen tags to represent the diversity and range of that specific character. You can browse the whole collection on the website of the Fondation Cartier.

“Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris” is part of the “Born In The Streets – Graffiti” exhibition at Fondation Cartier in Paris France. You can go and see it till November 29th, 2009.

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

July 10th, 2009

The next stop of the Europeam Nike IAM1 Journey is London. They asked INSA, the infamous London-based artist, to do an installation and exhibition with his trademark pieces. It’s quite nice to see how he can scale them and how they fit perfectly together. Just watch the video to see what I mean.
Next Friday is the opening of “Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places”  at 1948 in London.
