"Unframed", Ellis Island, NY
Photo installation by French artist, JR

An art exhibit titled “Unframed – Ellis Island” is being installed now in Ellis Island’s historic south side buildings. The exhibit will be part of the new public tours to be conducted by Save Ellis Island. This first time ever south side exhibit is by the artist, JR, who has done work throughout the world. The artist is preparing life size historic photographs of Ellis Island immigrants that will be pasted on 16 or more selected interior walls on the south side of Ellis Island. The artist’s intent is to evoke a sense of time and place and give context to the human lives that were touched by their time at Ellis Island.

Homage to William Morris

This was obviously a labour of love. An ornamental poster by hungarian designer, Boglárka Nádi. The type used has been customised from Black Swan by John Bomparte to be connected into the pattern-work.

Did you spot the birds and rabbits between the floral motifs?

Amazingly Detailed Cake Looks Like the Interior of a Library

Kathy Knaus has recently been discovered for her creative capabilities with cakes. She designs everything from sugary sushi rolls to a scaled-down fashion studio, but her most exceptional work is her multi-tiered library cake. In this fabulous creation, Knaus has hand-designed the interior section of a public library.

I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading. 
This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressive, world devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.
They are the Cleaners. 
The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper. 
I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that. 
 

This is so beautiful, and so much like the Hunger Birds inside of my head.
