Lift it Up!

Bermudan artist Antoine Hunt shares an introspective look at the evolution of his multidisciplinary practice, which has included photography, sculpture and video.
He reflects on coming to terms with being referred to as an artist and redefining what that means to him, as well as his resistance to certain labels which can project expectations or stereotypes onto practitioners and act as a form of segregation.

Persuasion within Marketing

Cool article about persuasion within marketing..Always interesting to read this kind of stuff.
"In his new book Hidden Persuasion, Andrews, with social psychologists Matthijs van Leeuwen and Rick Baaren, explores 33 of the sneakiest tactics advertisers deploy while hawking their products. These hidden persuasions, as Andrews calls them, are a driving force behind advertising world’s efficiency, and they’re way more common than you might think."

Little simple ideas

I just love little simple ideas like this!
"Packed within the four walls of a tiny 6 by 10 centimeter sardine can, the miniature characters created by sculptor Nathalie Alony for her project Home Sweet Home are both humorous and poignant. Arranged in a massive grid, the artist’s sardine can dioramas serve as a metaphor for the confined apartments in which we nest. These intricate figurines—men, women, children, beloved pets—each exist within the limits of their aluminum enclosure, building complex family and personal universes that seem to operate independently of the outside world."
