These fat invaders are made of 100% pure beef fat. Made by artist: Linda Hubbard
What she says about herself:
PROPAGANDA No artist statement from me……..Bullshit stinks……..
Under the picture she says: “WARNING not for human consumption. Folk’s there is always KFC Or a Big Mac.”
With this art she is giving critics on the greedy society. It is a nice symbolys, because this fatsociety we are living i, is really invading our future. Not only in terms of health but also the financial consequences we have to pay for.

This project of Arelien Juner, the series – Surface – is a reflection on de function of fashion magazines as a medium of dissemination of ” mass culture” images and its relation with the reality. It’s about questioning the status of the fictional world and idealized created for the magazine, and its relationship to the real world where the image is built.
The series is proposing an approach of the object by selecting covers with a big diffusion. The context is changed, the magazine on white background becomes only an illumination.
Plastic and photographic work, this series, as an object of mass culture, can give new meaning to the existing image and more generally, to question the meaning of an image. What is magazines’ perception as a presenter of the image? What influences the image, shown on the cover? Does it have an impact on our own perception, our does it have an impact on the society? These are a lot of questions you can get when watching this artwork.

This is the new Dutch ad of the Burger King. With this ad they are trying to convince women, fastfood isn’t that bad. Do you think this is a good way to attract women to your business? I like this creative advertisment, but I don’t think it will generate more customers. Maybe it will change the experience of Burger King, because the ad isn’t focused on the physical product but on the brandimage.

VIB is a life sciences research institute, based in Flanders, Belgium. They perform basic research with a strong focus on translating scientific results into pharmaceutical, agricultural and industrial applications. For their fifteenth anniversary, Soon did the entire event branding, for which they used only chalk and a huge blackboard. For this event they also designed a box with nine books in it. For the books only they made more than 200 large chalk drawings. Because people are getting more and more visual, this is a nice way to respond to this. It helps you to understand the information better and get a quick overview.
it begins with an idea, and then
it becomes something else*

Artist Gaëlle Villedary developed a grass carpet for the french village Jaujac. His project is called tapis rouge, what means; red carpet. Making a symbol of honor for the village, by connecting nature and their ways, the connection, the link, a way to connect the heart with the village and the inhabitants with the valleys. The incarnation of the threat that is crossing Jaujac through the ages is a piece of nature, a communion between nature and men, though art. Curious where the carpet will take you?

Yowayowa (Natsumi Hayasi) is a photographer based in Tokyo, but she is not just a normal one. When you see her pictures you will think it’s a trick, there must be some cables, wires or digital trick. But there really aren’t. Her images, typically shot against mundane urban backdrops, capture her dreamily levitating. How it works? She just jumps and set her camera on a timer. With a fast shutter speed of 1/5000 or more it is possible to capture her ‘levitating’.

New work from Banksy in London. Banksy is commenting on the rushed society we live in. We are always rushed, 24/7 available and we never take a moment to breathe. Not only artists like Banksy are noticing this. There are also a lot of designer, who are trying to make innovative products for this mentality group.

Yesterday I went to Mode <3 kunst at the museum of The Hague. The exibition showed the relation between art and fashion. You could see how coutoriers were inspired by famous painters like Mondriaan and Kahlo. You can get inspiration from all sorts of things, but what is interesting about this exibithion is the translation of this inspiration. The exibiton will be at museum of The Hague till 8 January.

Huang Guanglei made this Icoffee machine. With this machine it isn’t only easy to make a cup of coffee, but you can make real art with this machine. This is a step further than the normal coffee art. You only have to choose an image and you can print it with the milk. At the moment this coffee machine is just a prototype, but I would love to see it in the stores.
This product helps you to get a quick coffee, with a nice design. It will save time, so it is a wonderful product for the stress society. This product also shows that people want to personalize their usual things. They are turning a normal cup of coffee in something beatifull or funny.

Custoprothetik is founded by Simon Colin. For his thesis of orthopedic studies, he made some colorful and expressive prosthesis. They jury was shocked, but he still wanted to continue his project. He came in contact with a men who was in need for a leg prosthesis. He suggest the man to make a personalized one. Colin only needed someone for the artistic part of the work, so hecalled his friend and graphic artist Emmanuel Wostyn. From now on Custoprothetik was alive.
The main idea of making these prosthesis is to break the taboo. People have to see it like a normal tattoo, but now on a prosthesis. People won’t have to feel uncomfortable anymore, because they now kan talk about the prosthesis as a positive thing. It will break social en psychological barriers. The company sees this project more as a social project than a project to make a lot of profit on.
This company/product is related to the trend of personalization, because you can make the prosthesis your own, just like a tattoo. You can carry your own stories around on your prosthesis and other people wont feel uncomfortable talking about it.
