Tree of Life Poster by Degree

July 31, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I just reached for my wallet so quickly I tore a hole in my pants. The folks over at Degree have just printed this fantastic offset lithograph print entitled Tree of Life. The rings of the tree are created with tiny animals.

This unique poster aims to highlight the responsibility we have in letting animal species thrive in their natural environment—we have a choice whether or not to preserve nature and let it grow. Specially designed to assert this crucial message, it forms the basis of social attitudes towards Mother Nature for the many people out there who want to make a difference in our world.

Printed on 9 Lives Recycled Eco Frontier 250gsm paper. Only $45. (via omg posters)

Lamenting that he couldn’t build a real tree house for his son, Brock Davis (previously here and here) set out to build this Broccoli House using some glue and balsa wood. I love this so much.




Keith Lemley: Something and Nothing

March 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

New work from Keith Lemley that just opened at 1708 Gallery in Richmond, VA.

Keith Lemley’s sculptural installation consists of concentric rings of white neon tubes the paths of which mimic the natural variation found in the logs at their center. Lemley creates a space for dialogue between nature and the machine by filling the gallery with artificial light that is delivered through seemingly organic forms. By combining the everyday occurrence of perceiving light with an unusual delivery method, Something and Nothing calls attention to “the phenomenology of sight, the physiology of perception, and the experience of being a living body in space.”

And if you liked that, see also his Luma series.
