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 Sunday and Goodmorning! Today we are going to watch Pharrel Williams’s Video at 24hoursofhappy.com to see if we can make ourselves feel like a room without a roof……Filmed in Los Angeles, directed by We Are From LA and produced by Iconoclast. The song Happy is featured on the soundtrack for the film Despicable 2. The video was released Thursday November at the stroke of midnight. So that would be Friday 22th?. Whatever, Enjoy!
How much time did you spent watching and listening to this WONDERFUL project (or as we overheard at the Mimi Berlin Headquarters, the best art we got to experience this year) ?
