Sight Unseen

Sight Unseen
A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: a perfect marriage of plant and pot, a permanent home for a previously nomadic gallery, and a ceramic series inspired by the Fantastic Four. Introducing the Gramaway on Sight Unseen! Every month you’ll be able to enter to win a prize by Instagramming your best image in response to a related theme. We’re kicking off the series with this 8-inch long, neon-yellow tassel by the Brooklyn design duo Fredericks & Mae, who we profiled back in 2010, and who will be launching their brand new 2014 collection — of which this tassel is a part — at next month’s Sight Unseen OFFSITE show. Fredericks & Mae have built a practice around tools, games, and vaguely ritualistic objects “with confused origins,” they say; the tassel may not have an obvious provenance or use, but it’s a lovely decorative object nonetheless.

Le voyage créatif Let me take you with me on one of my afternoon strolls through the city. It takes time to get to know a new place, and I’m an eager explorer. So I use as much time as I can running between work and some classes to sniff out places I can call my own. Amazing DIY Lamp Of A Waste Bin Amazing lamp of a waste bin done with your own hands? Of course, it’s possible. You’ll need a $2 wire waste basket, scrapes of fabric of beautiful color and pattern, a “hemma” cord set from Ikea. You can do it very easily: snip out a space to feed the cord through. Cut strips of fabric to weave and wrap around basket. Weave fabric strip through basket about every 6 inches.

Jane Stockdale’s lush, personable photographs of the Kosovo Olympic team There are few young photographers better charged with the task of capturing an Olympic training season than Jane Stockdale. No stranger to documenting athletes, she brings out the almost psychological element of competitive sportsmanship, which we have seen in her photographs of England’s football team and portraits of a Team GB sprinter. The 2016 Olympics will mark the first time in history that Kosovo will compete in the Games, and to preserve this moment of anticipation, Jane has been on the sidelines of the training program, beautifully documenting the Kosovo team as they prepare. “They’re all really humble, really hard working and a lot of them can’t believe they have this chance,” she says. “Some of them have brothers and sisters who are also really great athletes but they just never had the opportunity to compete.”
