Hard to miss on La Cienega last night was Glenn Kaino’s “Bring Me the Hands of Piri Reis” at the Honor Fraser Gallery. From the large exploded boat sculpture filling the main room ~ to a beautiful series of map inspired pieces ~ to fists ~ photography ~ and so much more… it’s quite an extensive solo show! Take a peek at some of the work on the next page.
Amazing what one can do with thread and ribbon… particularly Brian Wills in his show “Unwound” over at Nye+Brown! Discovered his work while wandering the S. La Cienega Art Walk I showed you other random pictures of inspiration from tonight… take a look at some of the work on the next page!
So much art tonight ~ parking was lacking ~ food trucks were out ~ and the mysterious galleries of S. La Cienega had people flowing and drinking between them all evening. While i have tons of pics and quite a few posts to come ~ wanted to share some of the randomer pictures of inspiration and amusement with you before i fell asleep! Take a peek on the next page…
p.s. not certain which pics/galleries some of these were in as we randomly bounced in and out… favorites to come with more info soon!
Been spending the start of the year setting up NOTlabs, so apologies for the quiet 2012 so far! Before we rush ahead into what 2012 has to offer ~ here’s a quick look back at 2011 in 100 of the top of NOTCOT.org ~ click the little pics to see the posts!
On holiday cards too good not to share ~ here’s one that just came from Division of ~ “a multi-disciplinary creative agency based in NYC.” The card reads “The peace, love, and joy we wish you this holiday season is immeasurable. Here’s a ruler for everything else.” Love the laser cut acrylic ruler and the letterpressed card (pressed by Dolce Press) it aligns so perfectly with for stencil commentary! Take a peek at the fun on the next page!
Leave it to the packaging geniuses at London/NY based Stranger & Stranger to manage to bottle up Holiday Spirit! Remember last year’s absolutely stunning No 12. Christmas Absinthe? (And they are also the design masterminds behind packaging like the Kraken!) This year they’ve taken to Spirit No. 13 ~ in proper brown bagged style, rubber band and all… and the ads are hilarious. And that’s before you even get in to the very detailed apothecary styled label inside! Take a look at all of the amazing details on the next page…

AMAZING. It’s Christmas night, and i’m happily curled up, jetlagged, listening to music and browsing hundreds of vintage travel posters… and they are incredibly inspiring. Something about the mystery and wonder and playfulness they imply can’t be replaced by a photograph. They are filled with possibilities… i just browsed through all of the Boston Public Library Print Dept’s set and you can see my favorites on the next page!
“As Above, So Below” stunningly beautiful projection mapping by Light Harvest at the DUMBO Art Show - including stop motion animation, and the suspension of over twenty performance artists from fly wires at sixteen feet off the ground. The results are beyond mesmerizing… See the video!

This post is part of NOTCOT Having Fun In The Dark series sponsored by Canon Powershot’s Your Second Shot While taking pictures in the dark often means standing super still, you may still end up with more graininess than usual… armed with Canon’s low-light HS SYSTEM, you can trust the tech to help you capture the perfect shot the first time!
I’ve been lost in the world of light writing photography tonight which led me down the path to incredible artists and photographers using light to paint other worldly images in the dark… one of the most incredible standouts is German photographer, Jan Leonardo Wöllert. He photographs a world of “choreographed light” combined with low light photography to create glowing spheres, curves, and changign the way you view these dark spaces… and even created LAPP - Light Art Performance Photography in 2007. Take a peek at some of my favorites of his work on the next page!
First things first, if you haven’t seen it, you must check out Corridor Digital’s mini films. They are action and effects filled, and often have fun gaming references, but really they will suck anyone in! In their latest, “Brush With Death” they literally bring street art to life! They even include the classic cartoon move ~ jumping in and out of painted DOORS! Gorgeously shot around LA ~ check it out below!
