ALMA YORAY: THE STILLNESS THE DANCING by Summer Lee, Pipa Bradbury and Leah Harp Curated by re.riddle Private Reception, May 10th, 6pm Opening Reception, May 11th, 6pm 1932 S. Halsted Street #508, Chicago, IL Alma Yoray (1942-2010) was an accomplished dancer in the 1960’s artistic New York scene and later in Poland. With family ties to Chicago, Yoray’s rich and unsettled life transversed poetry, singing, photography, and spirituality, all feeding her rigorous and deeply expressive dance practice. Yoray’s life was fraught with emotional discordance, yet she sought a communication and redemption in creative arts, eventually moving to Poland to establish a residency for dance and Buddhist practice. Since her death, what has become of her longing for such expression? Contemporary artist Summer Lee interprets Yoray’s prolific journals into an art installation of sound and light, alongside designer Pipa Bradbury, who makes interventions on found photos of Yoray, taken by Yoray's partner, renowned photographer James Jowers (1939-2009). Leah Harp uses social practice with Yoray’s community, imagined and real, according to family and cultural practices from Yoray’s homes across disparate geographies. Together, the exhibition questions the legacy of an artist — whether artistic expression is as mortal as the artist herself; if artistic interpretation can give voice to the other or falls short in the context of irreparable loss. How can this re-embodiment of Yoray’s work speak to all artistic legacies, and to the larger human condition of desiring an immortal imprint as an index of personhood?

It has important physical and mechanical properties that make it unique: a large format (300x100 cm pieces), minimum thickness (3.5 mm), a lighter weight (8 kg/m²) and less absorption than a traditional tile....so fabulous applications await!!! http://www.porcelanosa.com/gb/wall-tiles/xlight.php

Loving this Kiosk for Aesop ( who were one of my first clients back in Australia!!)

-great use of product placement relative to social location!!!!

Located in NYC Grand central station & has been made out of 1800 copies of The New York Times

, the stacks of newspapers were pressed into a solid mass, forming layered stands upon which products can be displayed.

. The design was completed by Aesop’s Director Dennis Paphitis and NY-based architect Jeremy Barbour of Tacklebox.http://www.tacklebox-ny.blogspot.com/


An amazing coral like formation that can be dissambled & reassembled anywhere,

A series of architectural experiments have been culminated in a structure – one that’s lightweight, strong, water-resistant and self-supporting.

According to creator Marc Fornes, the project is neither an installation nor art. Combining elements of biometric design, sculpture, technology and architecture, the coral-like pavilion is made of 27 pieces of aluminium with nearly 156,000 drilled holes.

‘It’s prototypical architecture,’ Fornes says. ‘It’s an investigation into transformations from one state to the other.’

He says it has been developed through custom computational protocols, including form finding, form description, information modeling, generational hierarchy and digital fabrication.



Milan Design week starts tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This elusive Brooklyn NY street artist  DAIN maintains a special freshness & yet also manages to create a cultural iconic stature to his pieces...

"He both temporally and conceptually engages with his interests in Surrealism and the gritty subculture of Street Art...his portraits retain their aura of glamour, while simultaneously operating as exotic ‘artifacts’ of our own culture....."

December 2013

transforming the superstudio piu, milan into a foggy, soft-lit atmosphere, designer chikara ohno of sinato has designed ‘infuse’ for kaneka corporation, immersing visitors in an OLED illuminated space. an undulating sea of lit beams fills the room, defining an ethereal environment more than a traditional lighting exhibition. considering OLED is still a relatively emerging technology, ohno saw the possibility of introducing a new condition brought on by the panels, reconsidered in an experiential context. as guests enter and walk through the installation, fog mobilizing at their feet shifts in space and semi-translucent panels above their heads silently move in flux. rather than a straightforward display showcasing the light design, the installment redefines the image of the industrial accessory as a shimmering, misty phenomenon.

Ohhhhhhhhhh My recent Atlanta project has been added to the Porcelanosa website under their Residential Projects...check it out Master bathroom & the main Powder room

Fall is always beautiful, with  the leaves falling from the bones of their existance & leaving scupltural elements against dramatic skys

British scuptor Anthony Gormley s work  reminds me of Fall

"His works explore the interior space we feel within our own bodies -- and the exterior space we feel around us, knowing that we are just dots in space and time."

OHHHH Retail design can be soo much FUN!!!!

Love the simplicity of this retail space in this Stuttgart boutique by Swiss architecture firm ROK

 A textured wall of 22,000 wooden sticks has been installed -Extending in various directions and to different lengths, the beech wood sticks create the illusion of a single flowing form.




Love these Series of poufs for outdoor environments, with fully removable cover, available in different shapes and dimensions. The internal padding, made of polystyrene spheres contained in a polyester space fabric cover, is upholstered with Paola Lenti’s signature Aquatech fabric and braids. This combination of materials provides for effective water drainage and is therefore suited to remain outdoors http://www.paolalenti.it/en/product/show/play/materials/

Maison D Object has just concluded in Paris-one of the stongest influences was  ethnic chis with its raw industrial vintage side mixed with exoticism identified with long lost travels & mysterious adventures http://www.maison-objet.com.- followed by Paris Design week-this IS the best time to visit France!@!!!





This past weekend British artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss accompanied by numerous volunteers, took to the beaches of Normandy with rakes and stencils in hand to etch 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen people into the sand. Titled The Fallen 9000, the piece is meant as a stark visual reminder of the civillians, Germans and allied forces who died during the D-Day beach landings at Arromanches on June 6th, 1944 during WWII. The original team consisted of 60 volunteers, but as word spread nearly 500 additional local residents arrived to help with the temporary installation that lasted only a few hours before being washed away by the tide
