hi there. i snapped these photos of an art installation in soho last weekend. cool, huh?

i enjoyed a perfect long weekend, but it’s a busy day back at work.  i will have a few good things to share with you later this week. in the meantime, some links:

woodpigeon (a new (to me) band, thanks christophe + gemma for the heads up)

+ love the photography from mykita SS10

+ cool art from evan b. harris (i almost bought this print in portland last year)

+ the tightrope video from janelle monáe (such great style, i think she’s just brilliant (via live from APT))

hope your week is off to a good start.

    even b harris’s work reminds me of the album art for the decemberists.
    in the best of ways.

    Wow…the scale of that installation is incredible.
    I love it when one stumbles upon public art.
    Off to check out the links…
    Hope you have a good day, Brian.

    Is it meant to be hair? What is it actually made of?

    Peachey: Do you know who also reminds me of Carson Ellis? Sophie Blackall. You can check her out here:

    The second link is her “Missed Connections” blog, where she draws the Missed Connections posted on Craigslist. It’s a delight!

    I love this! Do you know if it represents something, like Rapunzel maybe?

    That installation is gorgeous. I’m sure it’s even more incredible in person. Thanks for all the links! Love Janelle Monae getting her James Brown on in “Tightrope.”

    Holy smokes – how beautiful. That dusty, rust red is incredible against that dark green.
