While in New Zealand, I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Catherine Griffiths, who from my short time there, I can equate to perhaps something akin to an artery, heart, or hub. She was and is a connector, an invigorator and a catalyst. She has just dropped a note to say that she has a new web presence up and by the look of it, is a wonderful update. Using dala floda from commercial type, the site looks smashing. Have a look inside to see her intriguing array of work as well. From writing, to curation, to coordination, to installations, to book design, it seems that all is possible in life.
Hope you all are well. I am sorry for the long disappearance. As the hug has been transforming, it seems I too have been transforming as well. More to come soon again.

Who doesn’t love typography made out of streams of water. Check out the video.

Todd Mclellan has been creating compelling images ever since his days in kindergarten fingerpainting class. Although the concept of exploded or deconstructed objects projected in freeze-frame isn’t necessarily original per se, I’ve never quite seen the concept so delicately executed as seen in his most recent works. Look see.
