While I was listening to The Suburbs by Aracde Fire (highly recommended), I was reminded of these gig posters by Burlesque of North America that I had seen a while ago so I thought I’d post some of them. The subject matter is really interesting but I think it’s the bright, vivid colour palettes that really bring the designs together.

Part of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2010, this model city made from blue foam serves to highlight the potential uses of temporarily vacant spaces for creative purposes. Vacant NL was curated by Rietveld Landscape.

Italian artist Willy Verginer creates these detailed, figurative sculptures. I love the odd blasts of colour that he adds to them which gives them a very graphical feel. A lot more can be found on his website which I highly recommend visiting.

Film The Blanks is an ongoing project to abstract movie posters to the very basic essence of their original designs. What’s great about them is that they look great plus fun to try and decipher what films they are from. Have a go yourself over at the website and see how many you can get.

This series of photographs titled Light’s Edge by Kevin Cooley are very haunting and beautiful. Check out his website for more stunning imagery.

For those that don’t know, Atlas Sound is the solo/side project of Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox and what he creates under this name is best described as experimental ambient music. Anyway, in the last couple of days he has been making available albums worth of demos on his blog for all to hear so go ahead and give them a listen, they are free after all.
So far he is up to Volume 4 and they are available here.
