The Pin-up Files. Vintage to contempory takes on the pun-up genre. So much to see and enjoy. These are two of my favourites so far; Art Frahm (above) and Bill Ward (below).
Even Roth keeps up the inventive tech-graffiti based work with his latest project, Graffiti Analysis: Sculptures. Captured tags are processed, 3D modelled and prototyped in real form before being mounted and lit in the gallery. Watch the video; it’s superb. Also check the Graffiti Taxonomy stitch at the bottom of the page.
“dutch design studio wieke somers does not want to discard the many benefits of technological innovation and its inherent mentality and the joy and will to create. instead she wants to make a statement about the current state of affairs in design and our conviction that we need a new view on what is necessary in the 21st century. her project ‘consumer or conserve’ evaluates this notion of a second-life. she considers, how human ashes can be reused by means of rapid prototyping or 3D printing, so that we may afford someone a ‘second life’ as a rocking chair, vacuum cleaner, perhaps even a toaster? would we become more attached to these objects if this was the case? would our willingness to pay more for a product increase if it is made from human tissue or ashes?”
