    Thanks to Damon Belanger's surreal sidewalk transformations, loitering shadows are bringing smiles to the locals of Redwood City in California as part of the Redwood City Improvement Association. Standard street furniture has been humorously enlivened with unexpected features ensuring passersby make a double take. Check designboom for more. Images courtesy Damon Belanger.

  • Prints Charming


    We're massive fans of Louise Bourgeois, so if MoMA's An Unfolding Portrait exhibition (through to 28 January 2018) doesn't give us impetus to get to New York, then we don't know what will. The newly opened show is drawn from her little-known print work, which is sure to provide further fascination with this profound and prolific artist. We highly recommend Hyperallergic's article about Louise's print legacy. Image: Louise Bourgeois. No. 5 of 14 from the installation set À l’Infini. 2008. Soft ground etching, with selective wiping, watercolor, gouache, pencil, colored pencil, and...

  • Sate: A Syrian Story


    A few weeks back we mentioned Free to Feed in a post about initiatives around the globe providing opportunities for refugees. Since then Cooking Instructor Nayran Tabiei has been featured in The Design Files Dream Job column telling her inspirational tale crossing the globe to settle in Melbourne becoming a community icon in the process. It's a delicious read.

  • Paradis Artificiels


    Miguel Chevalier’s IN/OUT – Artificial Paradises is a jaw-dropping multi-sensory installation comprising immersive projections within a geodesic dome complemented by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi's sonic soundtrack. It's a kaleidoscopic sensory adventure fusing nature and technology, and one where we'd like to wile away some time. Marvel at its wonder at Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire through to 2 November 2017. Thanks to Frame for illuminating us. Credits: In/Out - Paradis Artificiels 2017, Miguel Chevalier. Oeuvre installation immersive. Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire (France). Musique :...

  • This Is: A Moth Generator


    Moths are often unwelcome guests, but @mothgenerator is set to change that misconception. Thanks to The New York Times who alerted us to the wonder of creative Twitter Bots, we've been besotted by the ever growing make-believe moths, all based on reals ones, filling our Twitter feed. While we're on the subject of moths, we're a flutter for season three of Mr Robot after season two closed with an achingly beautiful cover of Aimee Mann's haunting The Moth and The Flame by Les Deux Love Orchestra. And lastly another moth-flavoured inspiration is The Moth, a program all about story telling...

  • Structural Leanings


    It’s hard to believe The Design Museum has been in its John Pawson redesigned home for almost a year now. Although we've not yet physically stepped foot inside we have enjoyed Oscar Hudson's virtual view on Nowness many times as part of their Fear and Love series. It's a warming behind the scenes look into the rethink process which has us itching to get to London to experience it first hand.
