MWM IN MOSCOW

mwm in moscow

Recently we received a mega-update from our friend MWM. He’s a prolific artist traveling the world creating beautiful murals, exhibits and sculptures. His latest excursion took him to Moscow for Sretenka Design Week. There, he exhibited his latest canvas work, painted 3 massive murals, gave 2 lectures and painted an impressive collection of geometric sculptures installed around Tsvetnoy. This is some of our favorite work to date. It’s beautiful. But, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point your attention to another aspect of MWM’s work – his iPhone photos. On each of MWM’s trips he racks up a serious collection of photos snapped spontaneously with his iPhone. Together they weave an excellent tale of his adventures while being an artist. It’s sure-fire travel inspiration. Click Read More to view a sampling of his work from Moscow. But be sure to visit his site to see the collage of terrific photos caught with his iPhone.

BERLIN'S RAPPORT

experimental spatial

Bold black and white shapes greet visitors at the entrance of Berlinishe, Berlin’s Museum of Modern Art and Architecture. The dramatic installation entitled Rapport was created by the acclaimed architectural firm, J. Mayer H. They’re easily one of our favorites and well known for their unconventional structures.

Rapport is on show for the next year and reveals JMH’s approach to spatial norms and how they create dynamic structures by experimenting with space. As the museum describes, “The work’s space-consuming concept negates the strict geometry of the entrance hall. The considerably enlarged, repeating patterns produce a flickering impression and transform the white cube into a playful scenario of inter permeating forms and structures.” Click Read More for additional information and photos.

WASTE LANDSCAPE

While Apple and Spotify move your music to the cloud, they’re also leaving behind seas of neglected CDs. Artist Elise Morein and ClĂ©mence Eliard created a phenomenal installation at the Halle D’Aubervilliers in Paris entitled Waste Landscape. Together, with a team of dedicated volunteers, they organized and connected 65,000 CDs by hand to create a series of dunes or reflective waves. It looks beautiful, but it also reminds us how fast technology moves. Waste Landscape will be on show until September 10th. They have plans to take the exhibit around the world. At its conclusion they’re going to recycle the CDs into polycarbonate. Click Read More for a closer look.

The one-year countdown is on. The 2012 Olympics in London are just around the corner as the world excitedly awaits its arrival. In usual form, England is preparing the finest facilities for the event. All-star architect Zaha Hadid recently completed her work on the Aquatic Center and the remaining construction on Olympic Park is quickly following suit. Among the various structures, we’re looking forward to the completion of Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond’s sci-fi observation deck entitled the ArcelorMittal Orbit. It’s guaranteed to accent the event’s already impressive architecture. We’ve posted a few photos below, but check out Wallpaper Magazine for the full gallery.

PHILIPPINE FASHION

philippine fashion

The world overlooks fashion & design emerging from Southeast Asia. But no longer, it’s time to pay closer attention to the region’s creative impact. For example, fourteen years into its existence, Philippine Fashion Week is gaining international momentum and developing its own unique imprint on the industry. The event occurs twice a year (May & October), and shows collections from both independent designers and larger brands.

We caught up with Victoria Herrera – model & journalist – to briefly discuss her observations at this year’s Fashion week. As she explains, “For local designers, inspiration stemmed from traditional Filipino costumes and fabrics, to island inspired aesthetics. There were European influences and some use of trendier cuts. I also saw smaller brands pushing to match the quality of bigger global retail giants. Each year the event grows and rises to meet international standards. One of the best ways to keep up with it is through sites like ”http://philippinefashion.tumblr.com" target="_blank">Philippine Fashion. It’s a photo blog designed to shed light on the event from a very intimate perspective. The blog highlights moments otherwise missed. From rehearsals to backstage moments, you get an insider’s look." Below we have a sample of images from this year’s fashion week, but be sure to check out Philippine Fashion for the full effect.
