Gathering - Li Edelkoort trend forecasting

In an unstitched society suffering from a long-lasting crisis that has made humans ferociously protective and arrogantly egocentric, it is time for mending and gathering, restoring the fabric of society. To pick up the pieces and bring them together in a multitude of possibilities, a quilt of substance, able to absorb shock. To layer and weave different entities and characters into one textile of existence, waiting to be embroidered on. To veil one cloth with another in order to give colour to the human condition. To weave flexible geometric patterns into the development of enlightment, able to structure the future. To pleat and fold matter into newer, sharper form, to bring innovative architecture to life and planning to society. To stitch fresh cottons into female form, lending a robust hand to otherwise light weights or to gather linens into billowing beauty in order to control volume. To frill heavier silks to become amazing spheres of rustling matter, running to the revival of a baroque momentum.
All these interventions on the surface of the fabric of our lives are meant to restore trust and faith in the capacity of humans to work and play together. To bring talent to the table and share it with all. To celebrate the possibilities that lay in front of us, ever more creative than in the recent past.

Overgrowth - Parker Fitzgerald & Riley Messina

"Overgrowth is a new and ongoing artistic collaboration between photographer Parker Fitzgerald and floral designer Riley Messina. 

Inspired by a pursuit of beauty, Riley combines classically thoughtful botanical designs with Parker's carefully considered film images in an expression of the multifaceted relationship between humankind and nature. The two artists contrast anonymous portraiture with sweeping landscapes in an attempt to capture both the malleable and untamed aspects of the natural world."

I love this project!!!

Ulla von Bradenburg

In her films, drawings, and installations, German artist Ulla von Brandenburg explores how things are staged and made theatrical, the relationship between audience and actors, the rules of performance, and the overlap between reality and illusion. In her first solo exhibition in Austria, Innen ist nicht Außen [Inside Is Not Outside], Ulla von Brandenburg is showing her new film Die Straße [The Street] as part of an installation which she created specially for Secession’s main gallery.

Rain Room at the MOMA

The Rain Room exhibition in these days at the MOMA in NY. Apparently you will be able to walk under a rain storm room without to get wet. The images and the reviews are already confirming the great concept.
