As far back as I can remember

~ As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.
To me, being a gangster was better than being President of the United States ~

Spinning Down, Somersaulting down



Fullscreen here.

On David Lynch's prompt, Werner Herzog describes rescuing Joaquin Phoenix from himself following a car crash. Using the audio of Herzog's story, and animated by Sascha Ciezata, this adds another thread to the rich tapestry of Joaquin's fascinating new film I'm Still Here. A car crash in and of itself.

I blame you Hollywood,

for showing me things you never should
show a young girl,
In a cruel world.

A Rich Tapestry


Frédérique Morrel's vintage tapestries are the skin for her sculptures of people, animals, trophy heads and home wares. The sculptures themselves are fiberglass molds injected with expanding foam, reinforced with steel rods.
She has three series of these sculptures.
Below are life sized human figures from the G.Host series.


The Visitors consist of life sized animals covered in vintage tapestry and needlpoint and accented with real antlers, horns and hooves.

Her Passe-Murailles are wall mounted trophy heads.

A world subjugated by the power of images


Thierry Mugler: Galaxy Glamour
a book.
Highlighting his iconic robotic + a body of work that spans more than 30 years, this book is a visual feast of inspirational challenges set for the rest of the world.
Mugler's training as a classical dancer and academic foundations in interior design, forged a unique and shocking style, syncopated with Parisian mystique, stratospheric success was inevitable.

Koolhaas

After mentioning the formidable architect duo Herzog & de Meuron in the Tokyo post, I thought it prudent to touch on their vunderful VitraHaus.

Nestled in the Vitra Campus amongst other formidables: Frank Gehry (Vitra Design Museum, 1989), Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando (Conference Pavilion, 1993) and all round hero Buckminster Fuller - this crazy series of stacked pitched-roof boxes was designed to display the Home Collection (design classics & re-editions/products by contemporary designers).


The concept of the VitraHaus connects two themes - the archetypal house and stacked volumes. Employing a domestic scale to display domestic goods this cantilevered five-storey building of structural extrusions and glazed gable ends, affords a cheerfully chaotic multifaceted assemblage.
