Lucyandbart for Showstudio



Rojo Nova

30th August 2010

Continuing to push the boundaries between art, fashion and performance, Lucy Mcrae has recently taken part in the Rojo Nova exhibition, a contemporary art experience set over a 7 week period in Brazil.

Using the medium of film she has explored movement and body adornment. Her film is evocative and alluring and I love the simple luxury of gold and silver paper clips.



Lucy has also recently taken part in Showstudio for anothermagazine with Bart Hess as Lucyandbart. Actual footage is still not up on the site, but this image gives a taster!





Projection of light

27th August 2010

Body architect Lianna Sheppard is pushing the boundaries of form and function with her projected light body sculptures. Exploring concepts of play and puzzles and simplicity in form, she has created a series of body adornments that fold out, pop up and light up.

Working both with internal light and projections she has created multifunctional and interchangeable clothing that are unique and innovative.

A fashion designer by training, Lianna is one of a growing number of designers who are crossing the boundaries between the body, product design, architecture and technology.

Working from patterns and shapes derived from flat to 3D form they play with perceptions of scale, pattern and silhouette.

Lianna's work will be shown during London Design festival as part of Kingston Universities Body Lab at Vauxhall fashion scout and at Tent London. She is also currently editing her video that I will post up here once she has it. Hot off the press!

Marquetry updated

25th August 2010

Marquetry has been having a resurgence over the past year or so with the likes of Bethan Laura Wood (ex RCA) and Studio Job as well as one of my favourite design studios Studio FormaFantasma with their piece 'hidden Inlays' for Droog.

A traditional wood working technique, modern day designers are using the technique to bring a new aesthetic and artisan approach to products.

The latest to emerge is from Gareth Neal who has designed a series of picnic benches and ping pong paddles.

Titled Urban Picnic, the tables and ping pong paddles are to be found in disused areas around east London on the 28th and 29th of August.
