A dear friend on the west coast sent this beautiful video to me. The video footage alone is so good.


rejecting green

FB: Would you label what you're working on "green" architecture?
WV: I don't like the word. As a matter of fact, I call it "red architecture," but then people immediately think of communism. But nature is actually red, it's rejecting green. The only reason you see green is because every other color in nature is being accepted, and green is the one that is being rejected. So the color of nature is in the flowers, that's what nature looks like: it's red.

Plaid Collection by Pia Howell of Colorgram. Pia creates her images in the darkroom in some sort of light exposing alchemy. This results in a very printerly, textural image in which the quality of the hand really comes through. To see these prints in real life is a completely different experience.

(p.s. colorgram + www collabo in the works)
