Karlie Kloss by Annie Leibovitz for US Vogue, September 2009
Feeling particularly susceptible to people thinking I'm taking a lo-fi tangent with this blog considering the new layout and the two last posts. The time I have for anything that does not propogate ideas that are able to obtain or already possess the ability to make money = 00:00 Jpg's are excluded from this, and thus when they make it up here it is a guilty pleasure that I personally am indulging in. Annie Leibovitz is also blowing it at the moment, how many people in the universe took out 15 million dollar loans in the middle of the largest recession in their lifetime, let alone how many did so who are employed in artistic industries. Fail Annie.

Norman Mclaren, Pas De Deux, 1968
Scott King, Brian, 2008
Scott King, a man probably best known for his TEMPORARY EYESORE comission erected next to the Tate Modern in 2008, is on the panel for a publication due out in November by Kunstverein München curators Stefan Kalmár (also the acting director for Artists Space) and Daniel Pies. When it comes to his work, even Walt Disney has to Marvel at the way he embraces graphic design via the obvious mathematical homonym. Working with pie charts, scattered bar graph's and Venn diagrams might seem a little clinical for those students scribbling on their desk in the back of maths, but he's also been drawing moustaches on photographs for at least 20 years longer than I have. The book should be a treat, proving true the contested idiom that "Everything new is necessary"

Tokujin Yoshioka got behind the design wheel in the refit of Issey Miyake's Pleats Please store in Aoyama, Tokyo. Results come care of recycled car aluminium, glass and steel keeping themselves warm under some particularly white light. No longer playing second fiddle to Issey Miyake's design orchestra, the interior architecture is most definately the mortar to Miyake's blocks of colour. He'll be in London dropping the curtain on his project for Camper on the 25th of September, which should be a pretty interesting kettle in comparison.
