In our Friday Favourites this week we have stories of inspiring photography, 3D crafting, projected art and digital fashion to share with you. But first, a little bit of book cover design…
To coincide with the “Into the Unknown: A Journey Through Science Fiction” exhibition at London’s Barbican Centre (close to our London Studio, if you’re visiting), Penguin Classics has released a limited edition collection of 4 famous works of Sci-Fi literature. The covers have been designed by illustrator Jamie Keenan, and each features part of the Barbican’s distinctive architecture.
Dreaming of summer holidays? Take a look at David Behar’s beautiful beach photography and you’ll instantly be whisked away to white sandy beaches with the water gently lapping at your toes…
See more of Behar’s beaches on Fubiz.
More photography inspiration, this time from the winners of this year’s iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS):
And now for a spot of crafting with Justyna Wolodkiewicz’s unique take on embroidery. We love her abstract, 3D twist on the traditional craft:
For anyone travelling to Sydney any time soon, make sure to swing by the Sydney Opera House at sunset and marvel as the side of the iconic building is transformed into a giant canvas of moving artwork. This style is known as “Badu Gili” – meaning “water light” in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point, the Gadigal people – and each 7-minute animated piece will tell a different story from the ancient First Nations, accompanied by music.
And finally this week, Jade shares “We Wear Culture”, a searchable online archive of 30,000 fashion items, created by Google in collaboration with museums, schools, fashion institutions and other organisations all over the world. Explore stories and online exhibitions from designers, curators and fashion icons all over the world, such as the history of the LBD:
This really is a treasure trove of all things fashion-related, and you can explore it here.
Until next week, Friday Favourites fans…
