Kumi Yamashita

By Julia Hennock in New Art on Thursday 27 December 2007

If I had a third thumb, I’d give Kumi Yamashita three thumbs up. The Japanese artist creates stunning visual effects with lighting and simple forms, like letters of the alphabet, children’s blocks, and shoeprints. Yamashita finds the rare balance between beauty and brains.

Matt Stuart

By Julia Hennock in New Photography on Saturday 22 December 2007

Matt Stuart’s photography makes big city life look so much more ironic and interesting than it is. It would take the average Joe a lifetime to capture the moments that reel off his website. He’d be the ideal wedding photographer for a marriage to oneself.

Sigur Ros’ Heima

Julia Hennock Reader Find

By Julia Hennock in New Music on Tuesday 2 October 2007

Synaesthesia, anyone? The glorious sounds of Sigur Ros are visualised in their debut film Heima (meaning ‘at home’ or ‘hometown’). The documentary-style film intimately chronicles the band’s tour of their native Iceland, and in doing so gives a voice to their magical and hauntingly isolated home. Performances from all four of their albums are featured, […]

Toshiya Tsunoda

Julia Hennock Reader Find

By Julia Hennock in New Music on Thursday 6 September 2007

Japanese artist Toshiya Tsunoda’s field recordings will blow your mind without blowing your eardrums.

By Julia Hennock in New Photography on Friday 24 August 2007

Dust off your digicams and start roaming the streets for plastic bags, folks. The Photographer’s Gallery is collecting images of plastic bags around London and elsewhere to illustrate the impact of our disposable culture on the environment. This passive, aesthetic approach to green is somehow more pervasive than many hard-hitting campaigns we’re served these days. And let’s face it, who doesn’t like a good American Beauty reference?

By Julia Hennock in New Products on Tuesday 21 August 2007

I’m sorry to gush, but the Japanese are so cool. And they’re even cooler now they’ve developed a USB-powered necktie fan. This silicone number isn’t only a sight for sore eyes, it’s the answer to environmental concerns about air-conditioning. To be proudly sported by businessmen and Harajuku girls alike.
