Aaaaaand the umbrellas are back in Agueda, Portugal. Although the installation doesn’t differ much from last year, the colors have changed a bit for this year’s Agitagueda art festival. Photographer Patrícia Almeida captured some great shots this year, many more of which you can see here. (via bored panda)
This beautiful installation of umbrellas was recently spotted in Águeda, Portugal by photographer Patrícia Almeida. Almost nothing is known about the artist behind the project or its significance, but it’s impossible to deny the joy caused by taking a stroll in the shadowy rainbow created by hundreds of parasols suspended over this public walkway. It reminds be of Garth Britzman’s bottle carport. (via my modern met)
What the what! There’s nothing like randomly surfing the internet looking for awesome things to share and discovering the unreleased cover of my wife’s forthcoming book (designed by David Gee) from the Joyland imprint at ECW Press on This Isn’t Happiness. It’s a really great book, and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it. Now excuse me while I go build her a web site.
