secret swimming pool

artist alfredo barsuglia has installed a secret swimming pool in the middle of the 25,000 square-mile mojave desert in california. it's completely free to use, provided you're able to find it in the first place.
the 11 x 5 ft structure is entitled social pool and, according to the artist, "is about the effort people make to reach a luxury good." the GPS coordinates of its location, along with a key to unlock it, can be obtained by visiting the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood.

drop the game.

so, in case you didn't notice - my last post was in mid december, quite some time ago! i spend most of my days juggling either bowie and/or flowers so it's hard to keep up here, dang it - however, if you want to know what i do on a normal basis at least pop over and visit my work at brown paper design

i refuse to let viva voce disappear, so until i can find the time - i will post favorite jams i'm diggin' as of late.

so on that note - give this one a listen.

i saw this and was immediately drawn to it.

i love how the clothes and colors coincide with the rooms natural elements.

do you think that was purposeful - the insane detail that many would probably just pass over - i see it all, i do.

help - someone please tell me who this fantasic designer is tho...


there is a floral studio that i've admired for some time now by the name of ERBA. many a reasons why i appreciate her work but i will just highlight my favorite thing at the moment... a brilliant floral/photo collaboration by riley and parker called overgrowth. it's being featured at a gallery called ROCKET in japan and so very inspiring. it has a quiet simplicity that is actually very difficult to achieve, but somehow they have beautifully.  

she is also simultaneously hosting workshops while there.

need i say more - i'll let the photos speak for themselves.

this installation was created for the 50th biennial of venice in 2003. it is now in the san staë church on the canale grande. it’s entitled falling garden, and is the work of collaborating swiss artists steiner and lenzlinger

i touch, talk, and think about flowers so often my dreams oddly resemble these scenes, well - in that way when you wake up from sleep you have random glimpses of something you've experienced in the past.
