Spotted this collection of matchbook covers, and apart from the gift of match-based metaphors, what struck me (sorry) was how valuable this very particular media opportunity used to be. Seeing as how so few people use or need matches now, the art of the matchbook cover has surprising parallels with many of our more usual […]
Stumbled on this, really neat and rather useful interpretation and presentation – take a look through and tell me how you feel… The Ekmans’ Atlas of Emotions
An installation at Schule von Freiburg, titled ‘Installationsansicht 2’, uses gels that appear to flood the floors at this exhibition, transforming the spaces into a series rather wonderful water colours (reminding me a little of Paul Klee): 1930 X.7.

Artist’s impressions used to imply a degree of artistry more associated with the water-colour box than the screen palette, and the result is a strange sense of reality – where the future seems strangely more real […]
Short-circuiting all the usual monologues about the roles brands play in our lives, this installation in the Midlands, UK, takes a sideways look at how we shop: In the shop, some 500 items have been repackaged with new branding developed in workshops with members of the local community: schoolchildren, mental health service users, people with […]
