Luren of our visual display team is part of a really cool and special exhibition going on at Copy Gallery right now! It’s called A Room – A Loom, and you are all invited to come take part!
Some words from Luren: The gallery has been converted into a giant loom. It stretches from one wall to the other and spans corner-to-corner. There is no space for you to move without becoming part of this huge apparatus!
The loom itself is really simple, and anyone can be taught to to use it in about 5 minutes.
You are invited to gather together the material of your choice and to contribute to the weaving of this collaborative textile. A Room-A Loom began as a site-specific weaving experiment by Julia Sherman at workspace, a small project space in East L.A. Materials used thus far in the L.A. loom have included weeds, old clothing, Halloween costumes, computer cables, bubble wrap, plastic bags, John Baldessari’s toilet paper, Sheep Dog fur, raw wool, yarn, pants, jeans, blankets, burlap sacks, palm fronds, pom-poms and more. In mid-June workspace will host an reception to exhibit their final piece.
Copy is the first of several project spaces spanning the country and beyond to undertake A Room – A Loom. Eventually, there will be a group exhibition with all of the weavings from the various participating spaces.
Check out this link for a Google calendar with times that you can come and weave!
Luren and other members of Copy Gallery will also be available at other times – contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment!

These geometric mixed media pieces by Jeff Perrone are really interesting. He uses all kinds of things to create them – mud cloth, buttons, sand, wood, etc… I really like the buttons especially. See more here!

These beautiful illustrations were all created in the early 20th century, and all the artists are Australian. I love them! I wish I could just dive right into one of them! BibliOdyssey made a fabulous post featuring these and many more gorgeous illustrations – very interesting and inspiring! Check it out if you feel like taking a little trip to fantasy-land!
Charlie Kratzer started drawing on his basement walls right in the middle, with a drawing of a painting by Picasso. From there he figured it wouldn’t be too hard to extend the drawings out to the edge of the walls – one thing lead to another, until he had decorated all of his basement walls with his drawings, using 10 dollars worth of Sharpie markers!
These earthy paintings are by Lisel Ashlock. I really like the feel of them, and that they are painted on wood! Check out her site for more paintings, and a few sweet drawings too!

I know we’ve seen many stop=motion videos, but this one is so darn cute, I couldn’t resist sharing it! I really enjoyed the credits at the end too, because they show how they made the video! I’ve never really seen any behind-the-scenes on a stop-motion video before, so it was really interesting! Enjoy!
These fancy cupcakes were photographed by Therese Aldgard and styled by Lisa Edsalv. They were reportedly inspired by Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Betsey Johnson, but I couldn’t find any shots of the Betsey Johnson ones, rather I found the Agent Provocateur cupcakes on Lisa’s site. So perhaps my source had it mixed up! At any rate, I would love to have a print of one of these photos! The Chanel or Louboutin shots especially would spruce my apartment right up! After these and the fashion lollipops, I wonder what kind of fashion foods are next!
