Infinite Variety

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 3 years, 4 months, 3 weeks, 3 days, 57 minutes ago.

In case you missed it, the   American Folk Art Museum recently presented a brilliant exhibition of 650 red and white quilts at the Park Avenue Armory. Spanning over three centuries, this display was graphically overwhelmingly and worth seeking out. If you’re interested there’s a flickr pool where you can see a bunch of peoples’ blurry photos or you can wait to get the catalog.

Current Events

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 3 years, 6 months, 4 weeks, 2 days, 37 minutes ago.

I went to   Cairo last year to meet with the good people of the   Articulate Baboon gallery. I had planned to do an installation there this year, and hope it can still happen. I haven’t heard from them since Egypt turned off the internet and can only hope everyone’s safe and they can reestablish some communication soon.
For the past three days I’ve been glued to   Al Jazeera live feed.  It’s amazing seeing this footage of people in the streets and inspiring to think that after 40 years of autocratic rule, a leaderless populous can stand up to power and demand change. I definitely don’t pretend to know whether this will lead to a better government or destabilization of the middle east - I don’t think anyone knows this. The only thing that seems clear to me is that even if you turn off twitter, the world is still paying attention.

Be safe Adam + Omar. Keep your head down. Salaam ! Go Zamalek !

Agents and imaginative consultants, Hugo and Marie also produce some amazing handprinted silk scarves. I made this reptilian design about the same time I was doing the Sigerson Morrison store, but have been too busy / lazy to properly promote it. Lucky for you it’s on sale now.

Time / Life : Science / Library
A revolution in a quiet room
Vallery, Barcelona
Nov. 4 - Jan 6

The work of a scientist is based on the conviction that nature is basically orderly.  Evidence to support this faith can be seen with the naked eye - in the design of a honeycomb or a mollusk’s shell - but scientists seek and discover patterns at every level of being.
- The Scientist, Henry Margenau

This series of prints and wallpapers is an interpretation of the LIFE Science Library - 25 books that were published between 1964 and 1967 on topics such as ‘Energy’ ,‘Matter’, and ‘The Mind’. The work is a recognition of the art of knowledge as well as the poetry of things we do not and can not know. It’s also a tribute to my parents who are biologists and my grandfather - an engineer who left me the books.

Skateistan

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 4 years, 6 days, 10 hours, 26 minutes ago.

Skateistan is Afghanistan’s - and the world’s - first co-educational skateboarding school. The school engages growing numbers of urban and internally-displaced youth in Afghanistan from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds through skateboarding, and provides them with new opportunities in cross-cultural interaction, education, and personal empowerment enabling them to lead their communities toward social change and development.

I designed a deck for their charity. The winner of the ebay auction gets this yellow board with bugs on it, but more importantly get to help out kids in Afghanistan with your charity e-dollars.
