    A Fine Balance

    The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness

    I was nine when I discovered the wondrous world of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. It was 1995; my family had immigrated to Canada a few years prior and, hoping for some extra income, they’d agreed to host a couple of international students on exchange from ...

    Marianne Beck

    No need for complications.

    It's hard to believe that this isn't really a pre-planned project. I found her Serendipity Graphic World site, a platform which is dedicated to Marianne Beck’s “self-initiated projects, happy accidents, unexpected discoveries, projects of pure decoration, forg...

    Sarah Harvey’s Drawings

    The drifting scenes appear real and fake at the same time.

    The same sea could appear so different throughout the day, appearing fresh during daytime and dark at night. Its ability to distort and transform is probably the way most people wish to live their lives, since the action of concealing and exposing is therefore...

    Structure, Sign & Clay

    Agateware-inspired ceramics.

    The cracks on the surface of clay are taken as a fault by some yet not by others. These interwoven textures created by time appear to be exclaiming the loss of days, where each crisply cracked edge is the evidential result of being dropped by a name now alread...

    A Trip to Cuba with Steffy by Quentin de Briey

    A document of the photographer’s travels.

    Cuba has always possessed a certain mystique for me. The movies I watched as a child portrayed the country as a sun-bathed land of cigars, rum and beautiful women, and Ernest Hemingway’s accounts of his years there have always been a source of inspiration. Mor...

    The Bowls Project

    Loewe unravels the facets of leather.

    These stumped cones stand proudly on their own, slicing through the air with their thick fine edges, so unbelievably smooth that they look like they were drawn out with after effects, forming a perfect gap in between the interior and the exterior of the refine...

    Fasted by Studio Dessuant Bone

    An impractically beautiful collection.

    Tools are produced to resolve problems, to improve life. Yet, what if they are stripped from their practical usage, does that therefore mean they are completely worthless? Or should we say that the love we have for tools can in fact go beyond their original us...

    See Do-Ho Suh’s Perfect Home

    Perfectly accurate fabric structures.

    As a kid, I was obsessed with LEGO. The popular toy bricks were my main creative outlet for many years and my imagination often ran wild with visions of fantastic landscapes, buildings and stories. But once in a while, I would try to recreate or copy the thing...

    Glasscapes

    Rearrangeable glass art.

    The sun comes up; the sun goes down. The sky turns blue, then red and sometimes dark. Nature motions on its own dial, and we can never stop it. We can only see it and recall it in our memories. The shades of tree leaves, hillsides, rivers and lakes, we can see...

    Retro Gadgets by Love Hultén

    Nostalgic visions of technology.

    The topic of obsolete technology is a fascinating one, and a subject we’ve covered here several times before. Jim Golden’s Relics of Technology, in particular, stands out to me with its neatly-ordered images of items like dial-up telephones, slide projectors a...

    Idiot Box by Donna Stevens

    Dilemma of our dependency on technology.

    What do you remember the most from your childhood? I remember the sounds of the morning news before I went to school, the educational programs on TV when I returned home from school, and how I always tried to sit right in front of the television as the family ...

    Animated video for Upward Mobility

    Watching the music video for the song “Upward Mobility” by The Helio Sequence is like the experience of trying to reach for the illusionistic pieces that seem to be flying out from the screen of a 3D movie. You can never touch it, but it fills your senses so m...
