The packaging of the lamp comes with a small rock, and it is up to the user if they want to smash through the concrete shade to reveal the wire mesh and light bulb within. This unusual concept gives the lamp a personal touch because you can make the finish yourself. Users need not worry about damaging the light bulb within as they are encased in a cork-board base.
The gesture within each photograph is created through exploring my own physical limitations and collaborative improvisation with dancers and performers. Each pose transmogrifies the figure towards abstraction; exaggerating or diminishing the skeletal structure until it approaches an amorphic form. I want the bodies to be recognized as bodies, but also to be detached from common perceptions of the figure. Bound within each singular view, the uncanny figures convey the body as both abject and marvelous.

Therefore, this calendar will fit households all over the world.
London artist Låpsley brings us yet another straight-to-the-heart song with 'Hurt Me'. Vulnerability is one of the main topics in her music and she is remarkably able to get that across through her songs. The video was shot in a forest near her home town Liverpool, a place that means a lot to her. 'Hurt Me' is released via XL Recordings. Goosebumps.
The artists (Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad) spent six weeks in the forest fascinated by the silence and natural occurrences in nature, especially the phenomenon "bioluminescence". They personified the forest to accentuate the natural beauty by creating luring luminescent plants and glowing magical mushrooms that speaks volumes to any visitor that enters the minds of the artists through viewing "bioluminescent forest". All light effects were projected onto real plants, animals and objects. No postproduction.
James Blake‘s video for his new single Retrograde, taken from his forthcoming album Overgrown out on April 8 through Republic, is a very airy and haunting film that matches perfectly the lightness of Blake’s musical universe. Blake for an other time entrusts Martin De Thurah for the direction of the film, a film that captures what seems like an asteroid attack on earth. It is dressed with finesse and attention to detail, and hits high cinematic levels with incorporating almost no special effects.
