Bronze on Oil Slick

Written by Valentina on . Posted in design, stuff


Flock reflective bronze, deep-pile velvet Skull motif on an incredible light-catching, iridescent base, using [horribly expensive] ink which changes colour as you walk past it through reds, greens, blacks and golds – like an oil slick in a dirty puddle. Printed to non-woven paper.

A volcano in your living room

The Other Volcano

“The Other Volcano aims to build a series of semi-domesticated volcanoes, to be housed for a couple of weeks in the living spaces of volunteers. These designed supra-natural objects will be large, reaching almost to the ceiling, imposing, and extremely inconvenient – erupting dust and gloop into the living rooms of volunteers seemingly at random”.

Crazy project by french designer  Nelly Ben Hayoun. The volcano is currently on show in the windows of the Wellcome Trust in London.

Burning Love by Pei-San Ng

Written by Valentina on . Posted in art, design


“This piece is made up of approximately 2,500 match sticks and a total of 24 hours. The board is a reclaimed art board / plywood. It was previously used as a glueing surface. The type is hand drawn.
Love on fire represents romance and passion or destructions and jealousy.  It is raw and gritty.”
