The most beautiful thing you’ll see all year: missing ducklings found safe in the loving arms of the family cat
Ok, so this is the heartwarming story of the year. Irish couple Ronan and Emma Lally couldn’t find their pet ducklings one day and went into a panic fearing that they had become, erm, breakfast for their beloved cat, Della. But it turned out that poor Della had been wrongly accused.
Created in 1692, this book by unheralded artist A. Boogert featured beautiful watercolours and theories around how best to mix them. As our friends at This Is Colossal have noted, the 800 page book, entitled Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau, ‘was probably the most comprehensive guide to paint and colour of […]
It would be fair to say that we have a thing for magnified photos on Lost At E Minor. And can you blame us? Who knew that a single grain of sand could look so vibrant under an intense lens, or that dust could harbour so many colourful elements? This incredible photo shows what you […]
This is so compelling we’ve spent three-quarters of the day watching it over, and over, and over again. That’s right, who would’ve thought that the simple act of blowing up a balloon with too much, erm, hot air, could lead to such visually powerful imagery. But it did, and here’s the proof. Fun, huh? [Watch […]
I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since Aussie music legends (and I don’t use that term lightly), Architecture in Helsinki, first graced the stages of inner-city Melbourne and Sydney. I was playing in bands myself back then, keeping one eye on my ever-growing Marshall stack and the other on the local band scene. And while I’ve long since moved behind the keypad and left my guitar to gather dust, these guys keep going. And going. And going. Phew!
Wow, wow, wow. That’s about all I can muster up about this incredible 3D artwork, entitled Space Invaders, created by Leon keer and Remko van Schaik and on display now at the EPFL campus in Lausanne, Switzerland. The artwork measures 150m sq. and was made over the course of six days. The painting will be […]
You really couldn’t get a better location to explore Melbourne from than Little Bourke street. Unlike many big cities, the Melbourne CBD is actually a fun, bustling environment with plenty of bars, restaurants and boutique stores to keep you – and your wallet – busy. The Ovolo, a Mr and Mrs Smith Hotel, is right in the heart of it all, within easy walking distance to the trams (Melbourne’s gateway to everything cool) and just a stone’s throw (literally) from the constant energy of Chinatown.
We threw a Lost At E Minor party in the old Chocolate Factory in Haymarket, Sydney, on October 10 for no other reason than it just felt like the right time to do it. The star of the party was local artist James Jirat Patradoon, who decorated the interior of the venue with his brilliant […]
I had the recent pleasure of staying at the beautiful Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan and be immersed at the same time in the ever-changing cultural and culinary scene that envelopes the East Village of New York. The building is 21 stories high, with 145 rooms, most of which have floor to ceiling windows and […]
If you’re passionate about the environment, then our friends at Air New Zealand have just the assignment for you. If selected, you’ll join National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards to help raise awareness of the essential research projects being supported on the ice by Antarctica New Zealand.
Our friends at Cake Wines have done it again, creating a buzz in both the art and wine worlds with their annual Archi-bottle Prize. The idea is simple: unearth the most talented emerging Australian artist and give them a Cake Wines label as a canvas. This year they received 350 entries, which are slowly being leaked online by Cake, including one by perennial Lost At E Minor favourite and Archibald Prize entrant, Del Kathryn Barton, who produced a typically colourful piece that would look stunning as the label on the bottle.
That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.
We love this annual initiative from our friends at Cake Wines, an Australian wine company who, in 2012, launched the prestigious art event: the Cake Wines Archi-bottle Prize. The concept is simple: they’re on a quest to unearth the most talented emerging Australian artist and give them a Cake Wines label as a canvas.
I wish GoThinkBig was around when I was trying to get a start in the media world. This online platform helps young people get the skills they need to kickstart their careers, in the process providing them with the best work experience they’ve ever had.
With influences ranging from the bleeps and bass of classic Warp artists to the spectral folk of John Renbourn, and the minimalism of Steve Reich to the percussive space-scapes of Do Make Say Think, the diversity of the music that inspires Kelpe finds reflection in his own sonic adventures, informing his ever evolving sound, combining […]
