* Design: Design Observer: Accidental Mysteries by John Foster: Street Posters

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 12 July 2012

Design: Design Observer: Accidental Mysteries by John Foster: Street Posters: “..Street posters, the kind of flotsam that exists near busy street corners, on light poles, walls — anywhere and everywhere in cities large and small, are easily overlooked unless you slow down and take an interest. Lost pets, a desire to meet others, save souls, anger and mental illness are found in these handmade signs..These street signs were found on UbuWeb, a large web-based educational resource for avant-garde material, founded in 1996 by poet Kenneth Goldsmith. It offers visual, concrete and sound poetry, expanding to include film and sound art mp3 archives..  John Foster and his wife, Teenuh, have been longtime collectors of self-taught art and vernacular photography..”  Marvelous.  Inspiring.  Didn’t you create all of these?..

* Design: Reflections on a Soup Spoon, by Alice Rawsthorn

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 15 May 2012

Design: Reflections on a Soup Spoon, by Alice Rawsthorn: “..it was designed by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in the late 1950s for use in one of his architectural projects, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Then in his late 50s, Jacobsen was the most famous architect in Denmark and was renowned internationally for the sensitivity with which he softened the ascetic Modernist style with gentle curves and sensual finishes..”  Excellent, sharp, smart article in The New York Times, by the astute design observer Alice Rawsthorn..
