Browser not supported BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.

The Cans Festival - Banksy street exhibition | Pinewood Design THE public is making its mark on graffiti artist Banksy’s first British exhibition in three years as a whole street has been transformed into an art exhibition. The Cans Festival, a three-day street party of stencil art, kicks off yesterday in an old tunnel formerly used by taxis, which was vacated when Eurostar left its Waterloo terminal in London. Artists from as far afield as Brazil, Canada and Australia are also taking part. Huge installations include smashed up cars, a CCTV camera-laden tree, an ice cream van, a cut-out of the Queen, and statues as well as artwork on the walls. Boris Johnson also features in murals by a Dutch artist named Hugo Kaagman. In one piece – We Need Change – the politician’s face appears by a picture of a Smurf. From today the public can add to the exhibition with their own stencilling. Banksy said: “Graffiti doesn’t always spoil buildings, in fact it’s the only way to improve a lot of them. The free event is open to the public from 10am until 10pm on Monday.

Illustrations by Daniela Uhlig | Designerscouch #thecritiquenetwork Human Bones Used to Make Art Francois Robert has created a series of powerful artworks made out of real human bones to remind people about the consequences of violence. Human skeleton is a strong visual symbol that represents what is left after life has ended, after the flesh and mind cease to function.

Repeating patterns are at the heart of most wallpapers, as they are part of the core of many simple, old-school, paper-and-pen games. While elementary in design (and execution), these basic black-and-white wallpaper designs feature an element of creative, unique and ultimately unpredictable emergent design that makes them grow more complex with tiime. The first layer – the original printed design – is as simple as it gets: a series of mazes, tic-tac-toe boards and crossword puzzles that naturally lend themselves to virtually infinite extension in any direction. Created by CinqCinq, these have been placed as the backdrops of art installations and waiting room interiors- perfect places to encourage spontaneous interaction. By setting out specific colors of pencil, pen, crayon or marker, the designer (or space owner) gets to exert another level of control but ultimately leaves the finished product in the hands of people who pass through a given space.
