Meet Dead Man's Bones: Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields

The duo plan to release their debut album, Never Let a Lack of Talent Get You Down, on their own label, Werewolf Heart, this summer. As far as celebrity music projects go, the quality level on this one is a lot closer to She & Him than, say, Joaquin Phoenix's rap career. Earlier this week, Gosling and Shields gave Pitchfork their first-ever interview about Dead Man's Bones. JTB-Photography.com. 22 Lost Photos From The '80s L.A. Hardcore Scene.

Yet at some point between her two-decade career as an industrial engineer (with a focus on water conservation) and her ongoing human rights activism, Koenig found time to create a fascinating (and largely overlooked, if Google is any indication) body of work as a sculptor. Aesthetically, the work falls somewhere between David Smith and Louise Nevelson—the reference points are perhaps inescapable, insofar as Koenig assembles largely abstract forms out of found objects—but there is another, less obvious meaning to her sculptural forms. In 1982, in an old farm in upstate New York, Shulamith Koenig found a trove of foundry wooden patterns and molds, hand carved by artists over a century ago.
