Marked For Life

In Uncategorized, Wearable Art on October 30, 2010 at 1:00 pm

Tattoos are worn for many reasons, but few are as symb0lic or as dangerous as the tattoos worn by Russian prisoners. CoolHunting blog reports of an exhibit in London called Russian Prisoner Tattoos, which features stark black and white photos of the meaning-laden, even beautiful designs. The photos are offset by drawings of the tattoo designs, all taken or made by two prison wardens. The history and meaning of the inks are as frightening and savage as they are fascinating. The exhibit runs October 29, 2010 to November 28, 2010.

Attention to Design: The Font

Fonts and design have been on my mind lately, as I have been helping boost aesthetics on a blog redesign. So this great piece over at ColorLovers is quite timely. What sets these pages apart? It’s all in the use of creative fonts, rather than the standard, boring old typefaces. Hit the link above to see more beautiful typographically-correct examples, and check out the links over a ColorLovers for even more great design.

Lego wall

Patching holes left in Berlin following World War II with Lego? Why not? Jan Vormann started the “beautification” project and inspired many other passersby to join and follow suit. Vormann’s kinetic sculpture work is currently on exhibit at the Jarmuschek + Partners gallery until June 13, 2009.
