i was devastated when news broke that the production of polaroid film was being discontinued, because I’ve always loved the instantaneous, old-school quality of the photos. but polaroid announced on tuesday that they will restart production of analog instant film for vintage polaroid cameras in 2010!
the comeback is due in part to the success of the impossible project, a group that has been working on saving polaroid products ever since their discontinuation was announced.
urban outfitters was a huge supporter of the impossible project, as well – check out the feature that appeared on their blog here: http://blog.urbanoutfitters.com/features/polaroid
photos by the very talented jennifer rumbach, who worked on the impossible project.

erica prince is freelancing for our visual team right now, and she’s also a great artist! her work is part of an exhibit called far in far out going on right now at fuel (3rd and arch in philadelphia).
erica’s drawings explore the implications of distinct design decisions within interior spaces. by arranging furniture, “art”, clutter, and décor, prince creates environments of indulgence, frivolity, and dramatic potential. as she says, “i urge the viewer to make themselves at home. become the missing character. feel the silk upholstery, meditate, host a cocktail party, and entertain a lover. try the spaces on like trying on a bad outfit. you know it is too flamboyant, but you have a sick curiosity of how it might look.”
i would definitely like to step inside this space…
artist stephen powers grew up in west philadelphia, where walls and rooftops were a blank canvas for the former graffiti artist. now, with the help of the philadelphia mural arts program, he has put a spin on the traditional notions of graffiti with love letter. the project is literally his love letter to the city where he grew up, that can also be read as a love letter from one person to another or from the residents of west philadelphia to their neighborhood.
