buro destruct

These posters are great. A graphic design firm based in Switzerland

With the aim to encourage and promote young artists,
HGB Fideljus created the «Destruct Agentur» in 1992.
Teaming up with graphic-designer Lopetz in 1994,
the «art agency» changed into the graphic design bureau destruct
or «Buro Destruct», as it is known today.
The current crew counts 4 members:
MBrunner (70), H1reber (71), Heiwid (67) and Lopetz (71).

The Great Bear

"Adapting the official map of the London Underground, Patterson has replaced the names of stations with philosophers, actors, politicians and other celebrated figures. The title The Great Bear refers to the constellation Ursa Major, a punning reference to Patterson''s own arrangement of ''stars''. Patterson playfully subverts our belief that maps and diagrams provide a reliable source of information. ''I like disrupting something people take as read'', he comments."

clever. 1992, really famous tube map manipulation.

Rock stars. seriously. Rock fucking stars.
Best show/Best time/Best people

short snippet I took

For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself...

I really have to remember the screen trick they did where they were showing two separate action, or videos at once but blinking them so they were happening simultaneously...

Manamana. When you're blue.

thanks Lauren

1. airport: "gum that replaces toothpaste! Chew on piece, and will clean your mouth!"
-- Child on a leash.
2. kid blasting eminem music on his phone to entertain an infant
3. i think "I wish there were promoters to get me in free" 30 second later it happens
--i think "i really need a hair iron after mine sizzled in the outlet" 30 s later "iron half off!"
--I think "i need a cell phone" 30 s later, virgin mobile appears.
4. ate dinner at "go sushi!" where they have a rotating conveyer belt that you take your food of off
5. boys.
7. lauren accidentally told an 70 year old man to fuck off since apparently a backwards peace sign means fuck you.

I went into Aerosole in the city the other day to get some shoes, and this cool looking guy apparently follows me inside, stops me and goes "I'm sorry, I had to come in here to tell you that you are absolutely beautiful" and walks out of the store. How sweet!

I've been preparing for London-- I can't wait. really tho. I'm so nervous. I don't whats going to happen while I'm there... I feel like I'm been slapped with the "go crazy" stick. FIVE DAYS. AHHHHHH

but anyways: some print work from English design firm, Tomato

New York, New York

I realized I haven't been taking pictures of my summer in New York at all. But its been SO FUN.

I just saw Death Cab for Cutie live in Mccaren Park Pool.... which was AMAZING! it was really one of the best times i've seen them, except that before it ended the scariest fucking thunderstorm of my entire life ensued. I couldnt decide which doom was worse-- walking in two inches of water on a concrete sidewalk next to giant trees or walking in 2 inches of water through a wide open giant park to get home.

I just realized thats there's nothing else I can mention on my very public blog. But I remember thinking that I'm going to want to die when I get back from London because it'll be 10x better than my life in NY, But really-- I feel I have a great August to look forward to when I get back. And it'll be wonderful.
