A few weeks ago, we went over to  The Fashion Institute of Technology to check out the 2017 MFA in Illustration Visual Thesis Exhibition, which was entitled 13 Stories.  It is while visiting the exhibit that I discovered a cool Pink Thing created by FIT student and MFA candidate Necdet Yilmaz, who is a native of Turkey.  Necdet’s visual thesis, Happy Tank, is a story about a little machine built for war that doesn’t want to fight. Happy Tank must be sent to war, but refuses to fire at a large building where a child is seen crying. For disobeying the order, Happy Tank is decommissioned and melted down. The story concludes with Happy Tank being recycled and used to construct a playground years after the war is over. Continue reading Pink Thing of The Day: Happy Tank

This disquieting dress is 3D printed, and the 3D file was developed by designer Iris van Herpen along with architect Isaie Bloch. The file-making took two months of intense drawing and a full week of printing in a very sophisticated machine. According to van Herpen, “People often think that when you create something by machine, it is perfect, but this dress is a good example of the opposite. While the dress was printing, many small ‘faults’ happened because of the intense heating of the material. This makes the bones irregular, and makes it look even more real.”

Well-made shoes always look like works of art to me: Like tiny wearable sculptures. It’s probably not entirely unexpected then that others feel similarly — one of those being artist Sebastian Errazuriz. In 2013, Errazuriz debuted his installation, 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers at Miami Art Basel. A collection of twelve shoe-like sculptures inspired by twelve of the artist’s ex-girlfriends, and realized through the use of a 3D printer, these shoes were really quite spectacular, and were featured in a couple of The Gig’s Posts from that time. Because: Shoe Art.

To make Cost of Living (2014) and other works in this series, Josh Kline interviewed workers – janitorial staff and package delivers – and then made casts  of their body parts that they used to complete their daily tasks. In this case, he spoke with the housekeeper named Aleyda,  who worked at the Rivington Hotel. Continue reading Cost of Living (Aleyda) By Josh Kline
