I adore this new work from Debbie Wijskamp. Black Ruby is a series of pots and bowls made from recycled rubberpowder. She developed a new way of working with this material, and created small ‘pebbles’ as ‘buildingblocks’ for this collection. I used this unique series for the exposition ‘Winters Tafelen’ which I made with Studio Aandacht.

A work consisting of two painted or carved panels that are hinged together.
For the third year, COS is supporting ‘Frame’ at Frieze Art Fair, London. Therefore they commissioned a film by animator and Royal College of Art graduate Sarah Beeby, in collaboration with anothermag.com
My friend Kelly Nederlof asked, for her graduation project, seven generation Y members (born between 1980 and 1991) to collect what must not be lost. She investigated how this digitally oriented group of young people are dealing with tangible memories and collecting as a form of practical memory. The shots are beautiful and serves a perfect documentation of a contemporary generation. *I was one of the participants.

I love this project : True Colours : from Lex Pott made of the materials copper, aluminium, brass and steel.
Lex Pott: “When an element like copper is found in nature it has a green colour. Iron has an orange / brown colour when being found inside the earth. Oxidized metal surfaces create colours that provide information about a material. The pallete is a reaction with the base material. Therefore the coloured surfaces have an organic growth of colour and not every colour is possible on every surface. Colouring metals requires accurate recipes. This project shows the results of a research on metals and their true colours; a direct relationship between colour, material and information.” Edition of 20 sets.
Any of numerous plants of the genus Urtica, having toothed leaves, unisexual apetalous flowers, and stinging hairs that cause skin irritation on contact.
The thin protective outer layer of the skin, composed of stratified epithelial tissue. Which provides waterproofing and serves as a barrier to infection.

During my intership at Studio Aandacht I worked on this production for Volkskrant Woonspecial (a livingspecial attached to the newspaper). It was called Touch Me, and we made 4 spreads. On the first image you see the cover of the magazine. The second image is one of the moodboards I made for preparation. On the last image you see one of the end result. For the whole production you can check my website.

I love this concept of The Burning House: “If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.”
Fascinating, forceful, clear and minimal architecture. These architects created wonderfull concepts. In the middle you can see The Truffle by Ensamble Studio.
The truffle is a piece of nature built with earth, full of air. A space within a stone that sits on the ground and blends in with the territory. It camouflages, by emulating the processes of mineral formation in its structure and integrates with the natural environment, complying with its laws.
They made a hole in the ground, piling up on its perimeter, the topsoil removed and obtained a retaining dike without mechanical consistency. Then, they materialized the air building a volume with hay bales and flooded the space between the earth and the built air to solidify it. The poured mass concrete wrapped the air and protected itself with the ground. time passed and we removed the earth, discovering an amorphous mass.

Vincent Fournier has spent the past decade and a half gaining access to some of the most controlled environments on earth – including government stations and training grounds – in an effort to expose the visual gems which can be found in these unforgiving landscapes. Capturing landscapes that could easily be from another planet, as well as scientific machinery and obvious space equipment, the Vincent Fournier ‘Space Project’ series depicts a mission of sorts. AMAZING!
Studio Toogood designs, directs and executes interiors and environments from concept through to creation. Offering a full creative direction and interior design service, the Studio’s projects range from the two-dimensional page to the three-dimensional space, and from the real to the conceptual. Wow! I really want my internship here.
Darkness – Light – Darkness; Poetic, historic, pure. This is al found at the Elle Decoration Suite, designed in 2009 by Maison Martin Margiela. Martin Margiela have once again gone to great lengths to create a unique experience for a post party venue with the re-design of the Elle Deco Suite, once the apartment of Palais Chaillot architect Jacques Carlu. With the Eiffel Tower a short distance away, this project was initiated by the Cite de L’Architecture & du Patrimoine in the prime location. Not afraid to go big, Martin Margiela have combined white, silver and trompe l’oiel to create this overwhelming experience.

I am fascinated by infestation. Growing. Mold and damp patches are the ultimate shape of beauty. The art work and pictures wich are shown beneath are all based on concrescence and infestation. Martin Scott-Jupp for example made close-ups of the various types of mould which can be found growing on your average loaf of bread, given enough time and neglect. They’re from a series called Colony featuring the beauty and wonder you can find in decaying matter and growing fungi. If you weren’t told that these were molds you probably wouldn’t have ever known, thinking they were some kind of tiny flowers or a set of miniatures shot in a sort of tilt shift way. It’s so fascinating that something so gross could be so beautiful!

This is what we are gonna see in a few. Romans, sticky romans. Soft pastels -like coral, red, ochre yellow, blur blue- and light plays an important part. These set-designs inspire me tremendously.
I love the work of Paul Octavious. He is a photographer placed in Chicago. Landscape comprises the visible features of an area of land, including the physical elements of landforms, water bodies such as rivers, lakes and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including land uses, buildings and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions.
