waste not

There is an amazing exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City right now by artist Song Dong.
Song Dong’s mother spent her entire life hoarding anything that she got her hands on, and refused to ever throw anything away. All her life she lived in a tiny house packed full with every kind of odd and end you can imagine. Shortly before she died, Song was able to convince her to allow him to clean out the house and use the contents as an exhibition. The exhibition is called Waste Not, and essentially it is all of his mother’s possessions, laid out and organized. The huge mass of stuff makes a really powerful statement. If I can get up to NYC in time, I will definitely be checking out this exhibition in person!

paint it black

I was so happy to stumble onto this video today! It’s the Rolling Stones back in 1966 performing Paint It Black. I love finding these old performances, and check out Mick’s jacket! It’s amazing. Plus he’s so cute! He he!

Sometimes when I get bored of a piece of clothing, all it needs to be exciting again is a new fun color! In the past I have been limited to using tea to get a warm brown color, or going and buying some dye at the drug store if I want any different colors – so I am really psyched that recently Pioneer Thinking put together a list of colors you can get from a variety of different plants! Dyes made from red cabbage will turn your clothes blue, and some dandelion roots will turn them red! They have something on the list for almost every color, definitely check it out if you are interested in some home-made dye! Threadbanger also has some great tips on preparing your home dyes!

Great post. I have 3 girls with very unique tastes and they love to alter their clothes. I love dying t-shirts in red wine, chocolate and hibiscus infusions. The t-shirts not only come out dyed but they also smell like the dye.

ink calendar

This calendar concept by Oscar Diaz is really neat! Utilizing the way the ink will slowly spread through a paper, this calendar is set up so that as the days pass, they are filled in by the ink!

junk & shadows

I can’t even fathom the patience it must take for Tim Noble and Sue Webster to create these amazing pieces! All of their shadow art is created using trash, and each piece takes anywhere from 6 months to a year to complete. It’s amazing that those piles are creating the silhouettes on the wall – I almost don’t believe it! See more of their creations here and here.

I would love to wear that dress made of flowers in the first picture! All of these clothes are part of an amazing collection by artist Nicole Dextras, called Weedrobes. The pieces are each made entirely of plants, with the hope that it makes one consider our relationship with nature, and the symbiotic relationship between one’s body and the earth. See more of these pretty creations here.

There are so many things going on in each of these paintings by Ricky Allman, I feel like I could study them for hours! Every time I look at one of them I feel like I see something in it that I didn’t before! The colors and shapes are pretty great too. Check out more of Ricky’s work here.
