James Turrell, the 75 year old artist famed for his immersive lightscapes, has a mega project brewing under a crater in Arizona. The completed work will comprise a series of 21 viewing spaces connected by six tunnels, described as ‘a controlled environment for the experiencing and contemplation of light.’

Kanye West is interested in helping the project reach completion - after recently visiting the crater he described it as life changing, stipulating that we would all live in Turrell’s spaces one day. He has donated $10million to keep Turrell’s Rodin Crater project alive.

Gentle Monster 2019 Eyewear Collection Campaign

Gentle Monster continue to challenge conventions with futuristic creative ideation. The new ’13’ campaign takes place in a world where the moon has shifted on its axis, creating a new month - Undecember.

In the 13th month, animals start to act differently. People develop a dependency on either religion or technology, and climate change sparks a further divide on earth - that of anxiety or hope.

The worlds have been created by 3D visual artist @frederikheyman.


CRAIG GREEN x MONCLER SS19

Moncler have collaborated with British Fashion designer Craig Green for their ‘Genius’ Collection.

Offering a ‘shield against the elements’ the collection, inspired by tents and flags, has been brought to life in a series of kinetic sculptures.

Tip Top x Whittaker’s Ice Cream Packaging

New Zealand based ice cream brand Tip Top have collaborated with illustrator Leslie David on a new pack design. The brand has undergone a ‘growing-up’ process with an Instagram friendly range of packs.
