Argentinian artist Christian Montenegro created illustrations for a South American edition of the fantastic Kafka short story, First Sorrow. Being that the story includes a trapeze artist, you get the drift of these fantastic illustrations. Read the short story here. (via)
And we thought ministers had better things to do. According to This Is Colossal, “The Minister’s Treehouse in Crossville, Tennessee is a 100ft structure built by minister Horace Burgess from the early 1990s through 2004.” The catch, no blueprints. The reason? Its America, dammit.
When accusations being to fly between Russian and US governemnts over weapons and supplies to Syria, it just gets us all warm and fuzzy for the Cold War days. Russian helicopters on their way to Syria, Clinton is pissed, Russia is being defensive … gosh, it feels so Cuban in here.
We aren’t going to pretend to be some sot of academics who have known about Ai Weiwei for decades and are like all the other art blogs out there that pretend to almost be apart of Weiwei’s inner circle. We just love everything he stands for, and the wide range of work he presents, from a pavilion to a simple picture with his middle finger to a hall full of sunflower seeds. The man is as influential and important as they come. And that is why we should all see this film.

Escif, who we consider to be one of the headiest street artists working today, has dropped so many good pieces in his hometown of Valencia this year, its hard to keep up. And with the European street art festival season going off soon, he is sure to drop some more. We love this “We Are the Robots” piece.
Mike Mills, the wonderful director of Beginners, created a series of posters for the influential Commune Design of Los Angeles, a company “With a staff of interior designers, architects and graphic designers using a collaborative mindset, we assemble the best team for each job and maintain integrity in every project we do.” Mills seems to fit well.
As you can tell, we like Grimes. Even though we don’t consider this to be a super guilty pleasure, we consider it to be one of the best albums/tracks of the year.
She was bored of cleaning, so she took pictures.
