i found this photography project the other day and it reminds me a lot of the WAFA mail art postcards i posted this morning so i thought it would make a cool DIY project for today! this is something that i definitely want to try- all you need is a camera and a friend!
every week, photographers ian land and caroline hancox each take a photograph and email it to each other. they then create a diptych of the photos and display them on a website, taking turns deciding which photo goes on the left and which one goes on the right. to make things more interesting they live 114 miles apart, have never met and do not know what the other one has taken during the week.
isn’t it weird how even though they aren’t planned, the photos end up looking really good side by side? or do i just think that because that’s the only way i’m seeing them?
regardless, it is such a fun project and a great way for them to collaborate and inspire each other through their work. check out the website here.
this would be such a fun thing to do with a friend- especially one that lives far away! if any of you try it send me your photos :)
postcard collages by wafa, an international artist collective that focuses on collaborative projects. one artist creates something and mails it to another artist to finish, adding an element of surprise and randomness that i think is really interesting.
check out more of their stuff here…it’s pretty sweet.
Surreal, lullingly pleasant, quirky and warm. Were all senses that were provoking the air around me last night.
The night was Vetiver at Johnny Brendas here in Philly.I’ve always been a huge fan of Andy Cabric, I think his voice is something very special and it helps that he can jig around a little with his guitar too!
The evening was magical, especially for a Monday night.
My wandering eye was pinned on this sweet looking folk girl and her beau. How great do they look? I think they must have jumped straight on the bus from Laurel Canyon.
this album isn’t exactly new but i just discovered it and i had to share! the phenomenal handclap band consists of eight core members from new york/brooklyn – it’s sort of a mix of blues, electronic and soul, with a little bit of psychedelic rock – no two songs sound the same.
check out this video for the song “baby” – and tell me you aren’t singing it in your head all day!
the we the free scoop neck tunic is a HUGE hit with fp girls here at the office! we caught seven girls wearing it today! it is super soft and comfy- i’ve been eying it up for a while now, i just can’t decide which color i like best :)
i was looking at some of our stores’ facebook pages the other day and saw that our clarendon store had posted a bunch of really cute pics of themselves trying on some of their favorite new looks from fp! check ‘em out:
“movement, change, light, growth and decay are the lifeblood of nature, the energies that i try to tap through my work. i need the shock of touch, the resistance of place, materials and weather, the earth as my source. nature is in a state of change and that change is the key to understanding. i want my art to be sensitive and alert to changes in material, season and weather. each work grows, stays, decays. process and decay are implicit. transience in my work reflects what I find in nature.” – andy goldsworthy
