Ben the Illustrator has brought us Speakerdog Series 6, 66 paper toys created by 64 artists around the globe. If these were life-size I would definitely be living in one of these... hmmm maybe Ikea will one day invent a mobile version for families, until that day comes, I’m happy to download, print, and fold together.
LEGO is more in fashion now than ever before we see them used as fashion accessories and now in architecture and city planning. Urban planner and artist, James Rojas, will unveil one of his interactive city models at Fifth Floor in LA’s Chinatown district. Visitors will be able to take buildings from off of shelves and place them on the model located in the middle of the gallery to create their own ideal urban form. The model will change as it builds upon the contribution of others.
Opening reception: 8 August 2009, 6-9pm
