Super fun

I worked on the design and layout for this ad with Richard Woods, which just ran as a full page in Frieze. The exhibition is at Milton Keynes Gallery, full info here.

Brooklyn melons

June 28, 2008

I was in Brooklyn recently doing some preliminary work on a commission for the Brooklyn Historical Society. Here are some fruits of wanderings deep in the borough, including a real and counterfeit $10 bill, and (the last image) the dilapidated-but-charmtastic Avenue Q subway stop.

The Netherlands is known for its rich art and design culture, and it should come as no surprise that trains are considered decorative spaces. A sampling of train art from journeys in Holland.

Remix of poster ads for Star Wars, Murakami and beer. Love it when user generated crosses over into physical, public space. From the NYC subway.

Quietly disruptive

“Tagging is the quietly disruptive technology. Everybody tags. It is the most basic human urge to mark what we find. We do it with Folders in Windows. We do it online with Bookmarks. Specialist tag Microformats such as Hcard and Hcalendar add more structure and we are only at the very start of this wave.”

Marshmallow Cosmos

February 4, 2008

marshmallow5.jpg

Marshmallow Cosmos is a replica freeway column mass-produced as a breakfast cereal. A series of high resolution photographs of supporting columns from underneath the I-280 freeway in San Francisco were offset printed, using the same process as standard cereal packaging.

The work is a re-branding of generic breakfast cereals. Types and flavors of enclosed cereal vary widely and the variety of cereal in each box is unmarked. (Yes, there is really a bag of cereal in there, and no, we can’t remember what kind. You can pick it up and give it a shake.)

Our attention is drawn to the blurring of word and image in the layered buildup of graffiti. On a cereal box we read for brands and logos, but in this “freeway” version we find instead a networked sprawl of animated text.

Marshmallow Cosmos documents the supporting columns of the I-280 freeway in San Francisco, California, and all graffiti and painting was done by artists who frequent that site. 10% of the sale price of each box is donated to SF Connect, a local charity. The work is printed in a limited edition of 1,000 and each box is individually signed, numbered and sealed.
