Favourites found this week
It’s been a while since our last ‘Favourites this week’ post, but here’s the first one for this year (better late than never). Here are a few things we’ve got excited about this week in the world of art, design and branding:
Earlier today Jonny picked up on photographer Irina Werning’s Back to the Future series, which I immediately recognised from the Newspeak: British Art Now exhibition at the Saatchi gallery, as it was one of my favourite ideas in the whole exhibition. Or was it? It turns out that the artist I saw at the Saatchi was actually Clarisse d’Arcimoles, who has done a very similar project (example below). Either way, I still love the idea and the execution, but I did wonder – who had it first? Or is it the same person with an alter-ego and I’ve been totally fooled…?!
From Clarisse d’Arcimoles ‘Un-possible Retour’
Au coin de ma rue is a great blog about ordinary people on the street, that have an ‘intangible something’ that makes them unforgettable. Each person is photographed, then photographed a year later with objects that describe their lives, with a story attached to each one. Here’s one example, find more, and the details here.
