Oslo Opera House Curtain

It may seem odd to have a post dedicated to a stage curtain, butPae White’s design for the Oslo Opera House is a stunning exercise in concept and craft. Made of woven cotton, wool and polyester, the curtain appears from afar to be made of metallic foil of some kind, an actual piece of aluminum foil was scanned and output as woven fabric to create the efffect.

Inside Out: Artocracy in Tunisia

Fresh off his TED Prize win, JR has begun an even-more-revolutionary project titled “INSIDE OUT: Artocracy in Tunisia”. His effort features a hundred ordinary Tunisians, posting their images where only those of dictators once hung. The portraits were taken by six Tunisian photographers in collaboration with the renowned French street artist and other international artists. Not surprisingly, the project has been met with resistance by many who either question the motives of the project or simply don’t understand its meaning. Nevertheless, the photos are serving their purpose to promote a dialogue about the purpose and meaning of art in this politically volatile region. Read the entire article on Al Jazeera for a more detailed summary of the project and its importance.
