Kent Rogowski has created a series of portraits of ordinary teddy bears, but unusually each Bear has been turned inside out and restuffed.
Kent reckons “Each animal’s appearance is determined by the necessities of the manufacturing process. Simple patterns and devices never meant to be seen are now prominent physical characteristics, giving each one a distinctly quirky personality: their fasteners become eyes, their seams become scars, and their stuffing creeps out in the most unexpected places. Together these images form a topology of strange yet oddly familiar creatures. They are at once hideous yet cuddly, disturbing yet endearing, absurd yet adorable, while offering a metaphor for us all to consider. These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all. It is by virtue of revealing their inner core might we better understand our own.”
More bear stuff here.
New Gill Scott-Heron single and album out soon, in the meantime here is the latest vid. Hip hop stars must be cueing up to work on this.
Guy (twat) has ray ban glasses tattooed onto his face.
This weekend saw the release of the new adidas star wars collection? The teaser ad has a cool slick party vibe, ala adidas’ house party, with of course the obligatory David Beckham shot. Sneaker fans are invited to visit the adidas facebook page to find out release info etc, etc, yawn.
