Is This An Art Collective Or A Private Equity Firm? Group Buys Brand-Name Artwork And Literally Breaks It Up To Sell Off The Parts

“The Brooklyn-based artists and designers behind MSCHF purchased a $30,000 Damien Hirst spot print and cut out all 88 of its dots. Starting today, they’re selling the dots for $480 each.” (That’s $42,400 in total.) “Meanwhile, the original print, now just a piece of paper with 88 holes and Hirst’s signature, is up for auction for a minimum of $126,500.” (Wow, they really are like Bain Capital.) – Artnet

The Choreography Of Social Distancing

“In this time of confinement, we have been given one immeasurable gift — the freedom to go outside. In exchange, we must abide by a simple rule: Stay six feet away from others. As choreographic intentions go, that’s not remotely vague. Yet during my runs and walks in Brooklyn over the past few days, I’ve noticed that six feet doesn’t mean the same thing to everybody.” Gia Kourlas looks at how (and why) social distancing plays out as it does — and gives instructions to the more oblivious among u...

Singapore-born, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Slodown verbalizes exactly what countless people are feeling in his new song “CRAZY OUTSIDE.” The downtempo tune may sound a little melancholy or forlorn at first, but the lyrics soon prove to be positive and include messages of gratitude and encouragement. The languid, piano-led song incorporates crackles reminiscent of old vinyl or staticky radio, which adds to its nostalgic tinge.

Premiere: “Mind High” By DOV

Textured, tantalizing R&B melodies from the Brooklyn-based, Tel Aviv-born alt-pop producer and multi-instrumentalist To access, understand or simply cope with the influence of anxiety on one’s mind, DOV (aka Dov Eagle) found that various substances lead to a quieting of the noise that makes it all so oppressive. This may be the surface subject matter of the queer pop artist and producer’s latest track, “Mind …

Brooklyn-based firm Studio Vural has unveiled an incredible concept design for an off-grid beach retreat, which is embedded into the sandy dunes of Cape Cod. The Dune House is a futuristic structure that is “carved” into the sand dunes, essentially divided into two parts by an open-air walkway.

Fox Fodder Farm Opens Its Own Multifunctional Space

Taylor Patterson's Williamsburg workshop displays elegant arrangements in excellent light Floral design is an anomaly among art forms. Every stem comes with an expiration date—perhaps it’s not stamped under a petal or mentioned when it’s wrapped up, but some bouquets only technically last 48 hours. They’re a finite form of expression beholden to seasonality and availability. “It’s like a cup of coffee,” Taylor Patterson, the …

A Watch Frozen in Time: Why CW&T is Removing Features from a Classic Digital Timepiece

Picture a digital watch. Not a smart watch or activity tracker—the most basic digital watch you can imagine. Chances are you're thinking of something that looks like the Casio F-91W, the ubiquitous black plastic LCD watch that's been on the market since 1989. Its simplicity, affordability (it costs about $10), and accuracy (twice that of a $30,000 Rolex) has made it a favorite with hardware hackers, artists, and—infamously—terrorists building bombs.Now it's getting a radical makeover from CW&T, ...

Pensa Tackles Aluminum Luggage Redesign for Zero Halliburton

Erle P. Halliburton wasn't an industrial designer, but he was both an industrialist and a designer. In the 1930s he traveled to various oil fields in America, implementing the new method of oil well cementing he'd invented; the frequent travel led him to design his own suitcase, which was made from a then-newfangled material called aluminum.The suitcases caught on, and in 1938 Halliburton launched his own company to produce them. Movie star Marlene Dietrich was a fan, and either Halliburton form...
