Jesper Kirkeby Brevik created this wonderful film as contribution to a class assignment at the University of Waikato in New Zealand.  Jesper Kirkeby Brevik describes his project:

I have chosen to base my film on a classical orchestrated piece because of the unique sound and personality that comes with each acoustic instrument. I wish to extract these qualities and transfer them into the different colours in my film, and thus give them personality. Looking at it the other way around I will also affect the instruments personality by choosing the colour to represent it and conducting that colours movement on the screen. I will naturally choose bright colours for instruments such as flute or violin, while cello or contrabass will be represented by black. The reason why I?

Alongside my Dangerous Minds colleagues, I had the pleasure of attending last spring’s Kenneth Anger lecture at L.A.‘s Hammer museum.  Although he was reluctant to take questions from the audience, the night certainly found Ken in good spirits and receptive company.  Subjects touched upon?  Well, everything from Aleister Crowley, to, why not, Agnes. B.  KA was there per the request of artist Francesca Gabbiani, who, at the time, was curating her sorcery-themed Hammer exhibit, Houseguest.

Miles Davis Quintet Skateboards

Ian Johnson designed this jaw-dropping series of skateboards for Western Edition. The skateboards depict the 1959 lineup of the Miles Davis Quintet, the group who played on the classic album “Kind of Blue.”

Update: Dangerous Minds reader Greg says, “Hi, just thought I’d let you know that this product and description are a bit wrong: The group that played with Miles Davis on the 1959 album ‘Kind of Blue’ was a sextet. You have missed out Cannonball Adderley. Also, on one of the tracks (Freddie Freeloader) Wynton Kelly played piano not Bill Evans. Just thought you’d like to know, Greg”

Dutch artist Desiree Palman has done some interesting work with various camouflage painting techniques that see her blend into her environment in the finished product.

Her work reminds me of the distinctive artform of iconic supermodel Veruschka:

Highsnobiety wrote a fascinating article on Viktor and Rolf’s enormous dollhouse exhibit dedicated to the spectacular designs of Paris catwalk shows. Highsnobiety says:

To write about this has been on my agenda too long. Just saw the images on my machine again and had to post this now. Beginning of this year we went to the Centraal Museum in Utrecht to visit the biggest overview exhibition of Viktor and Rolf ever shown in Holland. In retrospective the highlights of 15 years of their work was presented. The influence of this duo has been huge and we?

Meet Marit Fujiwara, a textile design graduate of the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Marit’s work is simply stunning. In the past few years - especially with the economy tanking - I haven’t given fashion much thought (I’m a former Los Angeles based stylist).  But her work is so inspired and creative that I really wanted to share it with you.  Marit says:

To create a sculptural fabric, I am experimenting with the printing technique of marbling,in combination with embroidery,bonding and pleating. Applying these fabrics into fashion creates unusual and intricate fashion garments.
