@_trippingtrooper_ writes: I have been making portraits out of my hair. I create these using a tweezer and forceps. It's an interesting medium to work with as I don't use any adhesive, even the slightest shift of a strand can disrupt a line/shading. Here is a portrait of you, albeit a younger version. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: Not just younger, but also skinnier! ⁠⠀ Thank you! Do look for the right person/application where the usage of hair makes conceptual sense. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Do check out @vikmuniz wonderful portraits using sugar and soil. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

RaivioBumann writes from Helsinki, Finland: This is an interactive public art sculpture called "light swing". It consists of two light domes which are lit by the movement created by bouncing, generated by dynamos. ⁠@raiviobumann⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: This is very sweet. I am all in favor of electricity generating ideas within interactive installations. We designed a stationary bike that lit up large neon typography in front of it, to very fine effect. ⁠⠀ Is what you are showing a prototype or is this already installed all over Finland?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

"Alles Elbe" is a very cosy craft beer bar in Hamburg St. Pauli. the „A“ symbolizes geographic spots which the river Elbe passes from its way from Czech to Hamburg: the mountain „Schneekoppe“, the mouth of the river, the „Elbphilharmonie“ and the wavy river itself.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: I very much appreciate the many little origins you can track your logo back to. I do believe these back-stories are important within any identity, even if they remain opaque to the casual viewer. Overall though the outcome is a bit cold for a cozy pub, and possibly also a bit staid. On your next project, I would try to go further away from what you yourself are comfortable in creating. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

@obleudesign writes: Biking through the city of Lorient in Brittany I came across this painted graphic on the side of the street. It's not my design but I like this unintentional symbol. It's about love and bike, two great things in life.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

Stephen Ong writes: I created this illustration as an experimental way of showing debate between two characters. It became a hypnotic, mundane loop, like watching a political debate I couldn't switch off.⁠⠀ @stephenonguk⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: This is oddly powerful and disturbingly mesmerizing.

Our book on beauty was translated into Russian, and very carefully so where the publisher went through the considerable trouble to create a Cyrillic version of our own custom designed typeface.

⁠⠀ @juhanahurtig writes from Finland: I took some photos of Helsinki bike lane signs and made a short looping animation. I was pleasantly surprised by the sympathetic, wobbling outcome that these seemingly boring and static images were able to create.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: I love it! You are certainly onto something here! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ And: What other seemingly static elements could be brought to an animated life? The little lighted people signifying pedestrian crossings? It would require some truly obsessive behavior...⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

@frankflothmann writes: Lego bricks and MC Escher’s impossible figures share a fair bit of playfulness and imagination. I attempted to capture that idea in a clean and simple vector drawing. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: I find it rather amazing that this very well worn optical trick 1. also works as an animation and 2. we are still fooled by it. Amazing! And extra well done. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

@reubenmargolin writes: This is my caterpillar with nine electric motors climbing a woodpile.⁠ This year marks my twentieth anniversary making caterpillars, and the first time I've gotten one to go on curved terrain. It takes nine minutes to traverse the woodpile, and here it's shown reaching the apex. Video by Chris Potter. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: Absolutely, utterly amazing! You must be the very best at this particular obsession, I have not seen anything like it - outside of nature. It is wonderful and just a little bit intimidating too. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

Chang Kiatluknachai writes from Bangkok:⁠⠀ I created this work called "Deadline" based on the idea that deadlines make us find ways to survive.⁠⠀ When life is under time constraints, wisdom arises.⁠⠀ @changthai70⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: This is a threatening concept with a positive meaning, very well executed. ⁠⠀ Are you working on this table on a daily basis? Does it remind you of your time limitations and therefor has a positive impact on your work? Or do you get used to it?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.

@hey_slick writes: I'm Rahul, situated in Mumbai. Only recently have I gotten in to filmmaking after completing a short course in it. I really wanted my first ever film to be an art film as I wanted to convey myself in its purest form using film and music as a medium.⁠⠀ This film is more of a poetry than just a film, it is an experience and is resonant to every person who watches it based on their own interpretation. For me it is the birth of a man's consciousness which sets him on a journey to seek enlightenment through darkness.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ my review: Right now, I don't find it very interesting. The shot of a man's back going through a door is just not engaging enough to hold my attention. I do believe film is a fantastically difficult medium as we have all seen such an incredible amount of good work that competing against all that history is very difficult. I am also aware that the stance: "Every person can have their own interpretation" is a popular strategy within the art world, I often just find it an excuse for either not saying much or nothing specific.⁠⠀ On your next film, I would try to tell a story that truly compels you.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you want your project reviewed within this space, email me a square jpeg or mov file on white or black background, do include your IG address.
