I haven’t seen any images of David Chipperfield’s expansion to the Saint Louis Art Museum since they loaded it with the art, so I was very happy to bump into a video where the curator of the museum talks about the new space while cameras glide smoothly through the pristine, day-lit galleries. It’s really an impressive space.
Eight years since their last album, Boards of Canada is releasing a new album called Tomorrow’s Harvest on June 10/11. The first track off of the new album is called Reach for the Dead, which picks up where the band left off, continuing their minimal electronic pioneering. This track is a slow build, so be sure to sit tight, strap on some headphones, and enjoy the ride. I’m totally looking forward to hearing more from this album.
I’ve also posted the video below, in case you want some trippy, abstract visuals to accompany your music.
Last week, hundreds of new and established design makers showcased their latest wares during NY Design Week. And while there were many standouts, Seattle-based Iacoli & McAllister continue to stand apart from the crowd with their deceptively simple furniture, lighting, and accessory pieces. Founded in 2007, by Jamie Iacoli and Brian McAllister, the duo cite exploration, craft, style, and quality as creative fuel for their work which has grown from spare yet colorful stools and pendant lights to tables, objects, and jewelry.
During the week artist and designer Scotty Albrecht got in touch to let me know that he’s recently created a whole batch of new work for an exhibition that he’s having in Brooklyn this weekend. The show is a joint exhibition with artist Damion Silver and I have to say that the duo make for an excellent pairing.
While I’m not sure that all five of these buildings are necessarily great, the animation sure is. Titled Five Great Buildings, this short was made by Al Boardman, a expatriated Brit who loves architecture and lives in Chicago.
