Do Not Repeat

'The Bay Lights', Leo Villareal, 2013

The Bay Lights is the world’s largest LED light sculpture, 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. Inspired by the Bay Bridge’s 75th Anniversary, its 25,000 white LED lights are individually programmed to create a never repeating, dazzling display through March 2015 across the western span of San Francisco’s Bay Bridge.

Cy Twombly, Rome, 1966

'I think space is for paintings, for looking at paintings. Paintings 'hold' in that kind of rectilinear space, which contains the energy of the works…'

Photographed by Horst P. Horst for Vogue.

Begin with art, because art tries to take us outside ourselves. It is a matter of trying to create an atmosphere and context so conversation can flow back forth and we can be influenced by each other.

Cezanne’s Shadow

Martyn Thomphson’s Wallpaper & Fabric Designs

Photographer/Artist/Filmmaker/Designer, Martyn Thompson, who is well-known for his evocative portraits of interiors or ‘lived in spaces’, has recently launched a collection of wallpapers and fabrics.

'The delicate petals of the ample Cabbage Rose caught Martyn’s eye while shooting on a rooftop garden in Los Angeles. The resultant image was printed and re-photographed at night by flash light before being manipulated both by hand and other studio means.' 

The manipulated imagery has now been translated into a collection of printed wallpapers, jacquard fabrics and bespoke papers, as well.  See the full collection at his studio site.

The Photography of Nir Arieli

If you’re going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

-John Philips, ‘San Francisco’, 1967
