SEN One Creates Cover for Time Out New York

Unbeige - Wed, 06/18/2014 - 21:15

You’ve still got more than two months to catch the Museum of the City of New York’s “City as Canvas” exhibition of graffiti from the Martin Wong collection. For a bite-sized dose, pick up a copy of the latest issue of Time Out New York, on newsstands today, which features an original cover by George “SEN One” Morillo. The graffiti artist, a lifelong Upper West Sider, was an ideal fit for TONY‘s uptown-themed issue. “Being born and raised uptown, and seeing the gentrification process all my life and seeing everybody coming up, it fits who I am,” he tells the magazine. “That story connects to my story.”

As for how that story connects with the street art of today, Morillo points to the humble origins of slick tools with names like Krink and Grog. “We made markers by popping the balls out of roll-on deodorant, putting in the soft stuff from school erasers, and filling the containers with ink. Those techniques, as primitive as they might seem, led to the markers they sell now,” he says. “Vandals created an industry, and it all comes out of the Upper West Side.”

Cooper Hewitt Unveils New Name, Identity, Typeface in Advance of December Reopening

Unbeige - Tue, 06/17/2014 - 18:54
The countdown to the revamped and revitalized version of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum begins now. At a press conference held this morning, director Caroline Baumann detailed plans for the reopening, set for December 12th, along with a wave of changes that debut today on the museum's new website, a WordPress-powered affair created in collaboration with Pentagram and Matcha Labs. The first thing to notice is the 117-year-old institution's new name—Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum—which dispenses with the hyphen and the "national" of old. There's a bold new Eddie Opara-designed identity to match, with an eminently scalable wordmark that forms a perfect rectangle. "Cooper Hewitt's new identity is straightforward with no play on visual or theoretical complexity, no puzzling contradiction or ambiguity, no distracting authorship," says Opara [cut to the Whitney's neurasthenic W, cowering in the corner of a billboard]. "Function is its primary goal." As for that non-nonsense sans serif, it's the work of Chester Jenkins of Brooklyn-based Village. It's available as a free download here. continued...

A Forest Grows at Ground Zero

Unbeige - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 13:32
The 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan is a living memorial in more ways the one. Approximately 400 swamp white oak trees were transplanted from the New Jersey countryside to the Memorial Park, which also happens to be one of the largest and most complex "green roofs" in the world—planted atop a seven-story, below-ground museum. Brooklyn-based filmmaker Scott Elliott seeks to explore this confluence of remembrance, monumentality, and landscape architecture in a feature-length documentary, The Trees, and he's looking to Kickstarter to help cover post-production costs in time to get the film on next year's festival circuit. Learn more about his project in the below pre-trailer of sorts.
