A hand-picked collection of stuff we are inspired by.
We were in a design pitch yesterday and this wonderfully simple concept was presented as part of the proposition and we couldn’t resist sharing it.
Since last December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas.
Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12.

We are just days away from the exclusive live acoustic playing in store at Lee’s Carnaby street store. Come on down and see artists including Brian Fallon, Dan Andriano, Chuck Ragan and Dave Hause will all be performing live in the Lee store on 15th October from 2pm onwards.
We all know Lee® denim as the first creator overalls and overall quality denim in jeanswear for men, women, and children alike. This is the first year that consumer’s and music lovers will hear of Lee® teaming up with Chuck Ragan, creator of the Revival Tour and member of former punk band Hot Water Act, as it hits the UK and Europe.
Inspired by a musical idea in 2005, The Revival Tour was brought to reality in 2008. This tour brings the latest folk rock artists and their fans together for 10- jam filled days. Since 2008, past festival artists include Against Me!’s Tom Gabel, Avail’s Tim Barry, and Lucero’s Ben Nichols. All artists are to perform acoustically in a smaller, friendly environment, ensuring that the shows are in keeping with the original folk spirit.
Starting September 27th and running through to October 7th, join Chuck Ragan (performing solo) and artists Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem, Dan Andriano from Alkaline Trio and Dave Hause from The Loved Ones as they tour outside the States for the first year since 2008. In addition, Jon Gaunt will be on the ?ddle and Joe Ginsberg on upright bass will fill out the performances.
“We live and breathe (this) music and I think it’s just a natural instinct for people who believe and live music to want to share that with other like-minded musicians,” says Ragan.
