The Plant Journal: Vol. 1

March 13th, 2012 | plants, photography, print, design | 2 Comments »

So I finally ordered The Plant Journal: Vol. 1, and got it in the mail a week or so ago from the great folks at Lucky’s in Vancouver.  I waited another week to open it so that I could document it when I did.  I’ve got to savor print like this, you know? It’s taken me several weeks more to post it up here on The Look See.  I know it’s probably the most overly documented plant periodical in the past decade, but can you blame me? I mean, it combines three of my greatest joys in life: plants, design, and literature.

Now I need Vol. 2 which is out now.

Sidenote: I’m convinced that I have a Staghorn-shaped void in my life.  Time to expand my horticultural horizons.

Another sidenote: this is also where I found Mr. Eichhorn’s beautiful collage work.

LACMA: Pacific Standard Time Contributions

November 2nd, 2011 | plants, local (L.A.), home, photography, sculpture, architecture, vintage, design | No Comments »

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I started a new job (hooray!) at the end of September and have had very little spare time or energy. I will still be posting, but the posts will be a little spread out. Please keep me in your RSS reader!

So this past weekend my lovely mother came to visit from Northern California. We visited LACMA because I wanted to show her LACMA first of all, but also wanted to see their contribution to Pacific Standard Time. My favorites were California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way and the installation of Five Card Stud by Ed Kleinholtz which was quite moving and immersive. This is a post about the former, but the latter is darkly fantastic and definitely worth visiting.

I took a janky phone photo of the Eames living room, as recreated by LACMA to compare to the real thing. I can tell you that even though it wasn’t identical, it filled me with joy and made me want to hop into the installation and have a cup of coffee a friend (or with the Eames’s).

Real:

VS

Faux:

Not quite the same, but you should check it out here for more detail.
