I'm probably a bit late in finding out about this, but maybe some of you haven't seen it. Do-Ho Suh is a Korean artist creates pretty amazing sculptures. He creates site specific installations which has always been an interest of mine.
This piece, "Perfect Home," was one of the first pieces that got me interested in him. Its created out of silk.
He has an exhibit up at the Hayward in the Psycho Buildings. Here's some images from that exhibit and an interview at the end of this post. Hope he conjures up some ideas for you as he does for me.

I've always been a big fan of 60s R&B/soul, even before I knew what it was. Anyone from Etta James to Sam Cooke to Archie Bell... I used to rent movies just to hear the music. Thanks to the internet and Time-Life infomercials, my music knowledge has grown. Now, with the resurgence of that 60s sound, Raphael Saadiq (from Tony Toni Toné! remember?!) has put out "The way I see it" and I like what he sees...

And the last of my travel posts.
I did what parents told you never to do, play with my food. I tried to make faces out of every meal I ate, but sometimes I gobbled it up too quick which is why there are a lack of photos.
I am always sushi happy.

And lastly, the hippie face-yogurt and granola

The Eye Candy portion of Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is beautiful, I don't know if we were there at the perfect time but the leaves were changing color and riding bikes along the canals made me feel like I was in some movie. The weather was just warm enough and just cool enough.
This pretty, rad poster.
The hand sewn signage for the "House Boat Museum"
This collection of crochet tools were lined up on the windowsill of someone's house.
My nautical theme followed me throughout my trip over yonder.
Not that I think this ad is awesome or anything, but while we were in Amsterdam, our hosts told us that the Nespresso Coffee Pod Espresso Machines were pretty popular. We went along with them to purchase more pods for their machine, and boy, was it a mad house. Our host kept laughing about how George Clooney was in the ads for them and I didn't see it til our last day in Amsterdam. Yep, they are pretty funny. And yes, George Clooney is some kind of eye candy.

Things that caught my eye in Copenhagen.
One of the other artists that shows at Beaver Projects, Tanja K Jensen. The layers and layers of paper cuts, colors, and beauty.
Second Hand stores
Rad Album Covers
A Grass Car
Things from the National Museum in Copenhagen
I wish I had better photos of these tiny paintings, they are so amazing!
A drawing from the exhibit of indigenous people
The toy collection was my favorite part of their collection, they had a whole room dedicated to doll houses. These little guys remind me of Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan.
And this poster from the Feminist Movement.
Eye candy from Amsterdam tomorrow.
