The love box

Posted on | February 20, 2014

This year Valentine’s Day was somehow special in Paris. It wasn’t just for those to celebrate who connect the day with romantic love; couples, lovers, people who are fond of someone. It offered very fast support to those who fell in love with someone at first sight. Which can practically happen on every street corner in Paris – as we know. The Flower Council Holland distributed 1500 ‘In Case of Love’ emergency cases carrying a beautiful red rose throughout Paris in crowded, and well-known romantic areas. “In case you meet your love at first sight, it’s easy to make it known. Just break the glass and take the flower. The only thing you have to do yourself is to declare your love.” Cute.

He spends hours creating these intricate masterpieces, knowing that the tide will soon come in and wash away his work forever.

Stiching Metal Objects

Posted on | January 30, 2014

Lithuanian artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene has put a unique twist on embroidery by using metal objects as her medium. Items such as spoons, shovels, buckets, plates, rusty tin cans and even cars are ornately cross-stitched with traditional and often humorous patterns, emphasizing the contrast between the density of metal and the tenuity of the embroidery.

Civic Battle on Bikes

I recently walked by this awesome light installation that was exposed in the passage of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. I met one of the artists, Onne Walsmit who gave me details about this urban intervention which was one of the higlights of this year’s Amsterdam Light Festival.

The lightwork is designed by ‘Venividimultiplex’, an artist collective, consisting of Joost van Bergen, Dirk Schlebusch and Onne Walsmit. It was sponsored by InventDesign and DHL Express.

The interactive arch determines the ‘strongest’ cyclists. Attached to the arch are… Read more
