It Came From 1984

Last year the Bottleneck Gallery, 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, New York held an art show, curated by Chogrin, entitled It Came From 1984.

Artists interpreted films from 1984 in all kinds of interesting ways. I have picked out my favourites, including Police Academy, Gremlins and Beverly Hills Cop, which you will find below along with an alternative 1980s music mix to set the mood.

Intricate Insect and Plant Sculptures Made From Recycled Materials

Working from a studio in Bristol, the artist, designer, crafter and collector Kasasagi creates beautiful and unique hand made pieces using recycled materials. As there’s usually a limited supply of re-cycled materials each and every piece is highly individual. All the items are sent with their own story, describing how they were made and what they were in their previous life.

“Most of my materials are found, recycled, or second hand but on the odd occasion (particularly where it is needed to make the item usable) I also buy things new. I try to produce work that is environmentally friendly and sustainable as these values are very important to me. My main supplier is probably my recycling box and it is not unusual to find me pulling things like old electric cables apart in order to use the insides! It feels great to be able to bring new life to old and rejected objects or materials rather than leaving them to waste.”

These items, and more, can be found on the artists Etsy store along with ordering details and commission requests.

Artist creates MFMarker (MyFirstMarker) entirely made from chalk.

I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE
-W. Houston

Visual artist and designer Baschz has created MFMarker (MyFirstMarker). It is entirely made out of chalk and shaped like a big fat marker. It therefore safely introduces creative children to street art without the risk of a good telling off from the local authorities.

The label and lettering on the marker are an embossed relief within the shape of the marker itself, so everything is made from one big piece of chalk.

The original all white MFMarker stands 12 cm high, is 3 cm wide and comes in a blackboard tube with a mimeograph info leaflet and stickers.

Baschz Leeft is a visual artist and designer from Rotterdam, with a profound love for (infiltrating) mass and sub cultures. His works balance on the threshold between artwork and product, often injected with a conceptual sense of humour.
