In a novel intersection of fashion and science, New York-based Slow Factory is utilizing imagery from NASA to create lines of translucent scarves. Their most recent collection, Cities by Night, is a series scarves imprinted with imagery of London, New York, and Paris captured at night from satellites and aboard the International Space Station. A second collection, Floating in Space, includes several breathtaking photographs of various nebulae captured by the Hubble. Slow Factory was founded by designer Celine Semaan Vernon, a native of Beirut who now lives and works in New York City. Several of their pieces are now available in the Colossal Shop.

Earlier this year we were thrilled to feature the work of Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo who works with rulers and protractors to create fascinating drawings of shells, butterflies, and other natural objects supported by a fictional geometric framework. With a strong background in architectural drafting, he renders each piece without the the aid of a computer using pen and ink on canvas with acrylic paint.

After appearing here on Colossal and several other publications, Araujo was barraged with requests for prints, and we immediately began to discuss the possibility of bringing his work to the Colossal Shop. I’m extremely excited to announce that we have teamed up with iolabs to print several of his pieces for the first time, with additional works coming in the near future. Head over to the Colossal Shop to learn more.

Colossal Welcomes Johnny Strategy to Editorial Staff

This weekend Colossal saw the publication of its 3,000th post, an extremely satisfying milestone for a blog helmed for nearly four years by a single person. Though as the site has grown, my time has become stretched thin across a multitude of projects and lately publishing has hit a wall in the middle of the week as other pressing things have arisen. It’s time for some help.

Please join me in welcoming writer and artist Johnny Strategy who will become a contributing writer here on Colossal starting immediately. Strategy was raised in Tokyo and now lives with his family in Brooklyn where he has edited the very fine Japanese art blog Spoon & Tamago for the past 7 years. He’s already helped out quite a bit here on Colossal the last few months, contributing articles about ROA, textile artist Mr. Finch, and today’s piece on Japanese manhole covers. Johnny brings an extensive art background to his writing and will be a refreshing new voice here on the blog each week. Welcome Johnny!
