felt, always dear.

HAND/EYE magazine has regular articles about some of my favorite media.  The publication usually has a rich depiction of a process or medium via multiple articles/perspectives.  This particular article is about Marjolein Dallinga, felt artist under the name Bloomfelt, who works with Cirque de Soleil to create costumes and related elements.  It's clear from the photo slide show that she also creates felt art installations and works for the static stage.  I recommend viewing the slide show of Marjolein Dallinga's work that accompanies the article (click on this post's title to link to the article).

Felt is certainly one of my favorite art and design mediums.  Everything from industrial grade, sometimes rock hard, tough felt to the paper thin, gauze that the animal hair can aspire to.

More articles on felt at HAND/EYE's site and even MORE in their print editions.

September 1st

On display at Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art yesterday.  Spectacles in and outside the building - I think this is probably a nice addition to the current exhibition - Energy Effects.
