Rachel Perry Welty

Rachel Perry Welty graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in 1999 with a fifth year certificate in 2001. She had a solo exhibition of her work at The Barbara Krakow Gallery in Boston, 2004 and at the “CC”Coburn Gallery in Colorado in 2007. She was selected for the “Levity: Selections Spring 2007” exhibition at The Drawing Center in New York. Most of us don’t pay much attention to the mundane objects we use everyday, like the twist ties that hold the plastic wrap on our bread and the broccoli together or the little paper cups that we pull out of a water dispenser. Using thousands of the throw away items at her disposal, Rachel Perry Welty takes these ordinary items and creates works of art with texture, complexity and meaning. There is a ritual about compiling these unconventional art materials into sculptures that seems both overwhelming and obsessive. Link here.

De leon & Primer: Mason Lane Farm

' Mason Lane Farm Operations Facility ' by American Practice de Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop is an entry into this year's World Architecture festival for the production, energy and recycling category. Located in Goshen, Indiana, the project is a new complex for farm equipment, servicing, re-fueling and storage on a 2,000-acre property utilized for agriculture, recreation, wildlife habitat and conservation purposes. Two separate barn structures consolidate the various programmatic elements while heavy consideration was put into the circulation and access requirements of the large-scale farm equipment. The building focuses on recycling and using locally sourced materials. (via Designboom)

Joakim Norman

Photobucket Photobucket " I've always been intrigued by candy and confectionary aesthetics. The colors, the blissful feeling and total unpretentiousness. That's what I wanted my own business to feel like. So I made hundreds of chocolate business cards, bigger chocolates to give away (with a golden coupon inside, Willy Wonka style), letters in classic Swedish candybag-paper style, a bag with nougats that represents my services and a big box to send to potential customers. And of course a website. Everything folded and designed hand (except for the actual chocolate, I don't want to poison people...) with lots of love." Designed by independent Swedish art director & designer Joakim Norman. (via The Dieline) Photobucket

Dishrack

Dishrack designed by New York based company DBA. ' A dense concentration of rods useful for holding cutlery and thin glassware fades evenly to a spacing large enough to accommodate bowls, plates and pans. A flexible mesh con- nects the posts, allowing the structure to be twisted open and rinsed. The excess water drains into a tray beneath, which can be easily emptied and cleaned. Both the main body and the tray are recycled polypropylene. ' Love. love. Love.
