With Coffee Morning just around the corner, the smell of coffee is in the air. So we were thrilled when we stumbled upon these coffee sculptures. This new ‘foam’ of art is taking the coffee world by storm.
I was really interested to see this exhibition at MACBA during my recent trip to Barcelona.
Weiner is best known for his typographic conceptual art, often installed as large wall graphics.
I really like his work; well, working as graphic designer that’s not that surprising. They’re very clean – some might say cold – so it was really interesting to see his drawings, which revealed another side to the artist.
From big working drawings for installations, to ideas on scraps of paper, this was a fascinating insight into his working mind. The things that stood out for me were his wry sense of humour and how personal, sometimes autobiographical, his work is.
If you want to see and learn a little more, here’s a nice video produced by the museum.
Embracing the bit of my sensibilities ear-marked ‘gothic’, (that’ll be the Edward Gorey fascination I’ve yet to grow out of), means I’m loving these ridiculously detailed abandoned houses made out of lego by artist Mike Doyle. And if you’ve got some old red/green glasses, check out his 3D version, here.
Fan of retro video games, or bowling, or both?

Earlier in the year I blogged about German art collective Mentalgassi’s lenticular fencing (see here). Amnesty have teamed up with them to ‘make the invisible visible’. They’ve created an installation in London’s Soho to publicise the case of a guy on death row in the states, where the evidence is distinctly questionable.

Knowing the creative team’s enthusiasm for origami, in tribute to the late Eric Joisel, here’s a link to a nice piece from the New York Times detailing his development from his first piece (a hedgehog made from a single sheet of paper) to his most recent groups of musicians.
