Wild psychological tinting and biases of survival





Formal rigor is used to uncanny effect on Bobby Rogers’ stark photography site. His use of milky contact lenses, saccharine floral frames, Northern Renaissance-like composition and saturated jewel-toned backdrops make the tension absolutely ravishing.

It’s impossible to know what the world actually looks like — our moires of attention, wild psychological tinting and biases of survival preclude any actual imaging — but it sure is fun to speculate!

Reach into the darkness and touch the stars





Elegant restraint pervades all on Lily Clark’s site — the subdued colors, the subtle separation of projects — even the pacing of the image galleries have a graceful, low-key rhythm. Well done. 🍒👌

at night I sleep my sleep
and dream my dreams
reach into the darkness
and touch the stars
place them in new places
where I would have them
pattern them into another design
of another tomorrow’s destiny


Words: Sun Ra, Touch the Stars

Ingenious, economic and chic availablism





Elements of Wolfgang Tillmans, 28 Days Later and Rick Owens suffuse the Studio Scrap site — like a beautiful, pensive, post-used-future rain. But you’ll find no disenfranchised ennui in the work of designer/artists Mujin Kang and Jinmok Son — just an ingenious, economic and chic availablism.

Lately we have been thinking that the search for meaning might be the byproduct of the ability to make tools — like the quest for understanding is the counter ballast to our general analytical ability. 🤔

Communicating a weird grammar of ornament





On Pavel Ripley’s site all is super tight with little fuss — and his lovely work, something like semaphore flags communicating a weird grammar of ornament in a void. 👍

Raymond Roussel
1877-1933

French writer Raymond Roussel was a genius. Quite simply his books show us that life is absolutely limitless in its bizarre gears; and dreams, which always seem so wild, merely a cool reflection. 🌀
