Recently Apartamento magazine  brought back into my mind how beautifully Wes Anderson conceives compositions of spaces and colors… very inspiring.

Take a look of this video from Louis Packet, under the idea “what if Wes directed Forrest Gump”

This series of ammunition cross-sections was photographed inside a WWII bunker in Switzerland in October of 2012. The entire series consists of 900 specimens. I was originally intrigued by the ambiguous nature of the subject matter. The cross-sections reveal a hidden complexity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It is a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.

“The Ballerina Project grew from the idea of New York City as a magnet for creativity; each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city’s landscape.”

La sedia per visite corte

La sedia per visite corte, the chair for brief visits 1945

If her guests are unstimulating, if life seems to be rushing by, if time is pressing, if the need to hurry steals the minutes and the hours… then the seat is slippery, she is shorter than usual, her back higher… This is a chair for briefs visits. Bruno Munari

I love my friend Lara’s work. Not only her job but her vision to do it.

She’s the editor of the art section of designboom, and usually shares with me some of her favorite articles, I always enjoy them. It’s a cool experience to work with her on saturdays, each one doing her own things, filling our cloudy memories with artist’s messages.

I don’t share her articles because designboom is a bit picky with the copyright of the images haha, but I think her taste in art is wonderful, and what she admires is honesty, the willing of sharing the truth. So if you follow designboom, check the author 🙂

A lot of times, we reach the girly love conversations, and I think this project by Yoko Ono it’s a beautiful metaphor of our vision… because you don’t fall in love, you grow in love. To grow is a hard and a extremely brave process, but to find that magical seed… that’s even harder.

Dans la société actuelle 1+1 ne fait pas toujours 2, mais peut aussi rester 1+1. Ceci est un aspect très intéressant, car l’absence de synthèse peut permettre d’utiliser différemment l’espace ouvert entre thèse et antithèse. On interrompt un cycle fonctionnel, en laissant les choses comme elles sont, mais en abattant le sens, pour en trouver un autre. Andrea Branzi

Most of the mistakes in thinking are inadequacies of perception rather than mistakes of logic. Edward de Bono
