The Museum of Arts and Design (“MAD”) explores the blur zone between art, design, and craft today. Accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1991, MAD focuses on contemporary creativity and the ways in which artists and designers from around the world transform materials through processes ranging from the artisanal to the digital.
Loose Leaf is a hybrid format of publication and limited edition print series. It exists in the form of a collection of unbound and large-format printed art works. Published twice a year, Loose Leaf intends to present images in a physical, livable form, a distinct departure from the online consumption of visual material that pervades our lives.
Each edition comes packaged ready to be installed, not stored. Leaves are hole-punched for placement on a wall with small pushpins.
Recent graduates Joseph Egan and Hunter Thomson from the Chelsea College of Art and Design created an anamorphic type installation as part of their final project. Initially interested in exploring the relationship between architecture and graphic design, these large scale typographic structures only become legible when viewed from a specific point of view. While some of the letters overlap over various surfaces, others required very little skewing to perfectly align with the other letter forms. (via)
Crossroads by Garvin Nolte “The video installation “crossroads (what to do)” deals with the influence of others onto one’s own path of life in an abstract way.” Every feel like everyone is pulling you in so many different directions? or telling you where to go and what to do? Is your technology dictating your life… literally? (via Crossroads by Garvin Nolte (NOTCOT))
Each print is perfectly sized to fit an 8x10 frame or matte. Illustrations by Jeremy Slagle, based on vintage film cameras collected from garage sales and flea markets around Ohio. (via Affordable vintage camera prints for your wall! - BLOG - Jeremy Slagle Designer)
