After reading that WWD article, I have been thinking a lot about mixing textures, whether it be actual 3D elements or just the look of them. Here are some interesting pairings I found on createthatstyle.com
The Mark Rothko painting that we saw at the MOMA still has me in awe. I liked placing it with design rule #10 because to me, the beauty of it is the simplicity of it. It's not over-done, but still well thought-out.
Jim Campell's Exploded Viewsreally exemplified Design Key #8 for me. The amount of meticulous timing that goes into creating the images in his light installation is almost insane (the good kind).
I love the images we captured of this piece, where in each one you see something different. What our pictures created to me is organized chaos. Something so thought-out transforms by becoming blurred and distorted. In more researching, I discovered "Lacking a point of reference, horizon, or certain depth of field" a topic on But Does It Float. The images there show the perfect examples of seemingly random, but well thought-out and purpose driven things can have a sense of randomness and chaos involved. Oh and check out the image I spotted that drew me to the site!
I thought I would revisit the key steps to design we saw during the Dieter Rams exhibit and point out what attracts me to the pieces I post.
This Dieter Rams chair is the perfect example of long-lasting and influential design. It's simple, useful, and brilliantly subtle in it's design aesthetic. I decided to find more of what I feel exemplifies this key of design. In searching for examples, I discovered Arne Jacobson, and like Dieter Rams, immediately recognized his work. I think what makes these pieces long-lasting is that they are still utilitarian without giving up on creative design. I think doing this exercise by being inspired by Dieter Ram's keys to good design, will lead to more discovery and deep-thought about why good design works.
I had this planned before we went to MOMA. The organic paths that are formed in the agate are beautiful. I love the "flaws" in agate, the unique starts and stops in nature's design. Here's to an inspiring weekend! Talk to you soon.
I got to thinking about light shining through"speckles", which along with bubbles in water, it made me think of northern lights in the stars. I love how soft the waves of light are, but still feels powerful.
Happy day-after Valentine's Day dear friend! I found a new site full of images so entrancing, I think I am addicted. Scanning through, I was drawn to this images because of the water in it's many forms. Bubbles, droplets, dew, condensation...reminded me of your ink project too. What do you think?!
