Inspired by Kim Gordon

The first time I heard Sonic Youth, I felt as if a kindred, angry sister was singing directly to me. Decades later, I now see her in a new light – as a visual artist. Design Office: The City Is A Garden is her new installation at 303 Gallery that features large-scale works on paper.

Dismaland Commercial

Bansky's Dismaland opened this month and I wish I could fly across the pond to visit. They released a commercial for the artistic theme park this week that does it much more justice than the still images and GIFs that have been populating my social media lately.

Inspired by Do Ho Suh

Do Ho Suh is a brilliant conceptual artist working with large scale sculptural installations. His bio describes his works as "site-specific installations that question the boundaries of identity. His work explores the relation between individuality, collectivity, and anonymity." His work is intimate and personal while exploring modern concerns with privacy and sharing.

Follow the Leaders by Isaac Cordal

Isaad Cordal describes his piece, Follow the Leaders, as "a critical reflection on our inertia as a social mass. Representing a social stereotype associated with power compound businessmen who run the global social spectrum… [The pices] represent a kind of city in ruins: a metaphor for the collapse of capitalism and the side effects of progress." I really love the size and scale of the work.
