Wondering Around

Hey there. I had funded this project through Kickstarter and am glad that it will be happening.

YK Love Forever

A and I finally got to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Whitney Museum yesterday. It was really great to get reacquainted with her work again since I’ve been such a fan for a long time. I also bought her autobiography Infinity Net (pictured above) which is already proving to be such an inspiring […]

Modernist Dollhouses

The NY Times came out with an article about charming modernist houses miniature size. There are times I would like be able to shrink my stuff to this size.

slash

If you live in New York, I highly recommend going to see the exhibition slash paper under the knife, which is up at MAD until April 2010. Above is some wonderful work by Béatrice Coron and the second one I’m not sure of. The love, care and fragility of these objects will leave you in awe.

Frohes Neues Jahr!

Happy New Year folks! My new mantra is “2010=less suck!”

Sister Corita Love

Just visited the Zach Feuer Gallery last Saturday to check out the always inspiring work of Sister Corita Kent. Her silkscreen prints just POP. I felt elated from looking at her work. This reminds me that I still need to read her and Jan Steward’s book: Learning by Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit.

I really liked seeing his sketches/process. People at the reception were so jubilant over the work! Also the new Cooper Union building is incredible with fabulous […]

Type as Nerve Wrecker

There must be a lot of type nerds reading the NY Times because one of the popular articles today is titled: Mistake in Typography Grate the Purists. I have to admit, I’ve gotten upset over bad letterspacing from everywhere–in subway ads, highway signs and especially movie titles.

ride the city

I love my new bike which isn’t so new–an orange varsity schwin 10-speed that I got at NYC Bike Jumble (the pic above is not my bike but I have something similar in a much dingier condition). And after much hassling from friends I finally got a bike helmet! So I’m ready to ride in […]

Everything will be ok

A couple of weeks ago, I attended an ADC-sponsored lecture of Keetra Dixon at the SoHo Apple store. Keetra was visibly nervous but gave a bubbly presentation of her awesome work and showed us stuff she is working on now at the Rockwell Group. I have to say, the Apple store is the WORST place […]
