Michael MacGarry’s exhibition, THIS IS YOUR WORLD IN WHICH WE GROW, AND WE WILL GROW TO HATE YOU, opened at Brodie/Stevenson a few weeks ago. What i’ll say here is that it is important and that it should be seen. Investigate this. Find this.

I Am Not An Artist

24 March 2010

New site commissioned by Soon in Tokyo and directed and animated by Johnny Kelly and Matthew Cooper. They created a total of 56 animated gifs for ELISAVA’s annual campaign “I Am Not An Artist”.

We’re really happy to finally get our second collaborative project up and going. This one is entitled Pattern & Shape and consists of work from seven TSA contributors. The brief of the project was to design a t-shirt using a geometric shape and incorporating pattern. You can see the designs and read more about the project over at patternandshape.com.

To accompany the launch we built a mini site to display the shirts and purchase from. Big thank you to Matt Loseke for lending your masterful coding skills. It’s built with Sinatra and deployed on Heroku, more to come about that soon.

This has been making the rounds on several blogs, but worth the post if you haven’t seen it. Alexa Meade creates her artwork by painting on the actual subject matter. Pretty wild idea, executed beautifully.
