We grew out of Andreas Gursky a couple months back, after we received an email from a copyright protection company that works for him, in which they kindly and subtly threatened to sue. That’s precisely why we savored this piece by Florian Freier as much as we did. In it, he uses Google Earth to recreate a large scale photograph taken by Gursky in Bahrain, which he later printed himself… I wish there was a free high res download of it so that EVERYONE could print their own Gursky without the fear of being threatened by the dog artist and his posse.
Yet, in any case, you can check out the “making of” video here:
Imeüble is Bjørn Jørund Blikstad, a recent MFA graduate of the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, specialized in furniture design. His website is very minimal, and only contains documentation of one of his projects. Yet, that one project is this untitled bookshelf that is ohh sooo fine!
I must admit it… this line of Naoko Ito’s work really really does it for me!
We can’t think of a better way of starting off the big ‘10 than laughing at other peoples misery! Of course, we don’t really mean that…We do in turn want to take a moment to thank all of you for your continuous support! Therefore, we wish each and every one of you the very best this new year, and hope you’ll enjoy this epic Wall of FAIL as much as we do!
ps- Ahhhhh you just have to love the Internet!
