Hong Kong Ballet 40th Anniversary Video

Ballet

‘Never standing Stll’ is the name of the latest Hong Kong Ballet campaign in celebration of their 40th anniversary. The art direction, typography and the video are made by Design Army, This design agency is, in their own words, a “Full Service Design Centric Agency”. Okay, they are based in Washington DC. What we really like about this campaign is that it mixes classical and pop references. That is done So well! After watching the video we, at Mimi Berlin, really need to see a performance by this ballet company. #bucketlist

Colorful Bears by Paola Pivi

These colorful bears, made of feathers, were on show in 2013 at the galerie Perrotin in New York. At first sight they look cute, almost like Pinata’s but when seeing these sculptures up close they gave us a horrible feeling…check it out. See if you feel the same. Paola Pivi site.

Happy colors horrible feeling….

Rüpert von Rom’s Must see of the month: Jessica Eaton

Must see of the month is Canadian photographer Jessica Eaton.

I don’t think I have to use many words to convince you this is great. Well, maybe when you are not a big fan of colorful art. But who is that bitter? I can name a few come to think of it. But let’s not go there.-
Just look her up, she does have exhibitions from time to time.. Enjoy!

Liebe Grusen. x Rüpert

About the work above; “Canadian Photographer Jessica Eaton has created more dazzling photographic works for her debut exhibition in the UK- Ad Infinitum Opening Jan. 23rd – Feb 8th, 2014 at The Hospital Club.  The images are made on sheets of 4 x 5 film and a series of monochromatic cubes. Eaton places red, green or blue gels over the camera lens to make multiple exposures of each cube, “The darkroom is a really visceral way of build a deeper understanding of the medium … and I have pushed the magic of it all into the very small darkroom I now have, the chamber inside my camera bellows.” (via jessicaeaton.tumblr)
