Mimi Berlin’s Small People

Mimi Berlin’s Small People

Sometimes when we have an idea, (well actually we have tons of them) and make a quick sketch, do nothing with those sketches, except for storing them in The Mimi Berlin Library of Ideas. We have a library filled with ideas. This is one of them: From the series Mimi Berlin’s Life in an Unreal world: Small People. This idea has been stored for almost half a year!

 

But just in time; before this idea gets old, we have opened the library. These are some of the ‘Small People’ sketches. We used them for an editorial in issue #3 of Woth Wonderful Things Magazine. We’ll keep you posted on the result!

Pioneers of Play Art

Pioneers of Play Art

We never heard of the term Play Art, but last week we found a site (the only one actually) which categorized art from the past 20th and 21st century with this term. According to Ernst Lurker of Playart.org it all started with Duchamp‘s Bicycle Wheel in 1903. The latest work on his site is by Lygia Clark made in 2013 (see image above) After seeing the art categorized by Ernst Lurker under “Play Art” we thought an exhibition on “Play Art” is a nice way for people who don’t like or “understand” art ’cause it should trigger you inner, curious, child.
