All play and no work

Childhood games, art directed, by photographer Tim MacPherson. Reminiscent perhaps of the work of Tim Walker, who conjures up elaborate, self-indulgent fantasies for British Vogue (some more images here at Triin). See also Couch Cushion Architecture, A Critical Analysis (via me-fi). Also relevant, The Living Wall (via Arch Daily), a timber structure that’s somewhat reminiscent of a timber version of Victor Pasmore’s Apollo Pavilion in Peterlee, recently refurbished.


The stuff of nightmares, art by Dave Devries: ‘The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can.’ / Ghost Signs / who is still using floppies? / the Devil’s Tuning Fork, commented on before, but still a fine example of 3D level design / a Grumman Promo Video, The Lunar Module Story.


Vote Labservative (via election aesthetics) / recycled plastic art at the Plastiquarium / The Nonbeliever, a tumblr / Botton pondered a World Without Planes (or residencies in airports, presumably) / birds in circles, the archetypal airline logo (via Kottke) / A Chart of the Sea Coast of the State of Mississippi from the Birmingham Public Library Digital Collections.
