On Etsy: Three Potato Four

Today I’m sharing a favorite Etsy shop of mine with you- Three Potato¬†Four. ¬†As they describe,

In 2007, we began Three Potato Four through our love of found objects. We’re collectors, and to us, all products and belongings tell a story. We live by stories and we shop for stories. Through the years of buying and selling found vintage pieces, we were inspired to take some of these amazing objects and make them again in a new way for today.

You can click on each image to learn more.

The Lost Photo’s of Marilyn Monroe

A week or so ago I stumbled upon this article on The Cut on these previous unseen photos of Marilyn Monroe. These photos were discovered by the wife of photographer¬†Andre de Dienes, who had cast Marilyn for an experimental nude project in 1945. 19-year-old Marilyn never did pose nude, but the images capture a¬†vulnerability not often seen in photos of Monroe. The pho’s were shot on Malibu and Long Island beach trips, and using a car headlight in a Beverly Hills valley to light Monroe‚Äôs face, creating a sometimes surreal, and certainly experimental quality. Enjoy! And, if you’re in New York, these images are currently on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery.¬†Enjoy!

Gucci SS16 Campaign

I’ve been thinking a lot about Gucci lately- ever since I caught a glimpse of their SS16 during fashion week. This past season pretty much¬†encapsulated the way I want to dress in my dreams, only I didn’t realize it until I saw it. Below are some of my selects from their SS16 Advertising Campaign. ¬†As credited¬†on their site:¬†Shot by Glen Luchford, the artistic and brutalist nature of this city¬†contrasts against the dreamy romance of Alessandro Michele‚Äôs collections.

Glitch Art

Glitch Art is something I heard about ages ago, and had kinda forgotten about until a couple of weeks ago‚Äď when I was interviewing a designer who loved Glitch Art and had several of her own experiments in her portfolio. I asked her about it, and how to do it, and it’s really simple. For those of you who don’t know, and want to experiment: Find an image you like, drag it into text edit, and then start removing lines of code. Save the image and then open it open again… and there’s your Glitch Art! Of course I experimented for hours after… so fun! Below is an image I played around with (original and glitch).
