Stumbling around on the internet the other day I came across the site of a clothing store out in NYC. Being the little denim-head that I am, I was immediately drawn to the pair of Nudies (pictured). I think I'll take a look at flights next...
The Bunny of Willendorf created by Niels Cosman is some where between a tribute and a parody of the Venus of Willendorf, a small fertility statuette discovered by archaeologists Josef Szombathy in the early 1900's in Austria. This bunny stands a mere 3 inches high, and just like the original, is intended to be held in your hand for it doesn't stand up on it's own. Niel currently has his masters in industrial design from the Rhode Island School of Design, and resides in Brooklyn where he teaches cold working at the Rhode Island School of Design.
FredricksonStallard's Rorschach-shaped Felt #2 is a rug. Innately psychological in its shape, the black wool piece changes function and meaning in this photograph, as it hangs on the wall. The function becomes purely visual. To an uninformed visitor in this space and context, its original purpose may be completely imperceptible as well as unimportant. In the photograph, each object has an unused function (apart from the painting which hangs on the wall).
Objectively speaking and in short, this is a shot from The Apartment, a gallery in New York where CITIZEN:Citizen showed during the May 2006 Design Week.
