Super Mario Odyssey Is Right Around The Corner.


A few months ago I bought my best friend’s kid a Nintendo Switch, and was actually jealous.  With the announcement of Super Mario Odyssey, I remember the first time Super Mario 64 blew my mind. Having watched this video, I’m convinced that the team behind this game has made a groundbreaking and immensely enjoyable platformer. The use of Cappy as a platforming tool as well as its applications in combat situations is very inventive. I look forward to getting my hands on this at some point in the near future.  Super Mario Odyssey will be released on October 27th exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, check out the overview video below.

Grammy Award winning pianist, Chilly Gonzales is a literal (and self proclaimed) musical genius, who has taken a favorable ear to modern trends in music and deconstructs them.  Chilly pulls out exactly what make a specific song unique, and gives analyzes the seemingly unquantifiable attributes that make our favorite songs our favorite songs.  Take a look at his break down of Drake’s “We’re Going Home”.

‘It Came From The Sky’ – The Embroidered Secrets of Maurizio Anzeri (Pt. 2)


In the post “The Emboridered Secrets of Maurizio Anzeri (Pt. 1)” I displayed some of the incredible works from Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri.  The works in the last post carried a primarily vintage style, these however, take his talents into the modern realms.  Shifting from his previous project to his current practice, Maurizio says that he is interested in everything a photograph represents. When travelling, he visits flea markets and collects photographs that are later transformed into pieces of art. His portraits maintain the quality of a photograph but then start to become three-dimensional something that prompted him to invent the term: ”photo-sculpture”. It is this three-dimensional element, achieved through embroidery and the form of intervention it brings that transforms the portraits into photo-sculptures.  Maurizio’s career is booming and growing and there is no stopping.  In Baltic, he is going to present 25 small portraits from the past, another 12 new pieces of embroidery and four sculptures. He was fortunate to work with great minds likeAlexander McQueen and Isabella Blow and confesses that he stayed in London because of the people he met.  He was picked up by Charles Saatchi, and exhibited at his gallery in the exhibition Newspeak: British Art Now, an exhibition that received great coverage and media attention.  Check out ‘It Came From The Sky’.
