Copy or inspiration

In the parallel universe called fashion a front page topic is the design of a new it bag, a blue tote by Balenciaga, resembling very much the shopper we all know by the name of FRAKTA. With all the sampling going on, it is hard to tell if this is about copying someone else’s baby or taking it to a next level and creating something new.

Demna Gvasalia designer for Balenciaga defending his work: “I think there is something about these everyday things that you see all the time and you want to understand why they’ve become everyday items for millions of people—this bag must be one of the most sold in the world, so, of course, there is something attractive to a designer in that regard. Designers are curious people by nature.”

Marcus Engman, the head of design at Ikea is mostly flattered, but would like to stress the characteristics of the real thing (above right, ad by Acne studio).

Apparently the discussion about the inspirational qualities of the mundane IKEA blue has sparked a true DIY movement of making your own Ikea merch.

Interesting.

Neuroaesthetics – Postcard size art by Martina Lasinger – one left for sale at Postmodern

Postmodern, a small online art gallery I discovered. It sells postcard size art made by upcoming artists, or established, but known by larger work. Affordable and versatile.

A great little idea.

About the work Neuroaesthetics by Martina Lasinger (from Postmodern):

“An object’s beauty may not be universal, but the neural basis for appreciating beauty probably is. When the human nervous system experiences beauty, certain parts of the brain consistently light up. These qualities, according to Beauty and Brain are grids, zigzags, spirals and curves. Such findings indicate that on some level, beauty may be universal regardless of culture or experience.

PS | 22072017 | I bought Neuroaesthetics, the work by Martina Lasinger, pictured above. It arrived in the post on Thursday.

It’s a fascinating grid of rectangles, like a 3-D map in which the alleys seem to be the slippery slopes. Four neighborhoods tied together in the centre, forming a pyramid.

Clever, beautiful.

One of the images I keep in my archive. Since I installed a new massive external harddrive all the work I’ve done over the years, small or digital, while keeping up the day job, all these images of moments in time are right at my fingertips.

I haven’t seen this for years, and I like it.

Back from 3 years in London, I had a studio space in Amsterdam, and my partner was working on his paintings in the same room. We worked under the name Avalanche CS, creative suite.

Work for 3 Miles From, a London rock band was published, but most work was my own, freestyle.

What my eyes need now

IMAGES FROM MY ARCHIVE

Photo’s I took, work by me, images I grabbed, paintings reproduced; a grab from my digital archive, which is now ever so easy to access with the newly installed external mega space, 2TB.

Simply browsing -in Bridge– through years of images I made or kept. I put these together, telling a story, with new found story lines, painting a broader picture.
