Spreading the Color Love: Design*Sponge

Spreading the Color Love: Design*Sponge


The always lovely Design*Sponge has been showing a lot of color love recently and we're all for it! If you're not familiar with the curatorial prowess of Grace Bonney and her contributors I suggest you start with a few of these recent color lovin' posts.

gabriel dawe thread installations

Using over 50 miles of string, Gabriel creates dramatic, almost other-worldly installations that, from one perspective, remind me of sophisticated and elaborate versions of the weavings all Girl Scouts do at summer camp using popsicle sticks. - Read more



color explosion: brita sweden

After a few days immersed in chilly temps and all-white scenery, I’m ready for a little (okay, a lot) of color...If there was ever a company with a pattern-filled collection that could shake the winter blues right off of you, this is it. - Read more

sewing 101: color spectrum pet bed

Pets get chilly in the wintertime, too (I noticed that my kitty has been making herself little nests all over my apartment since the cold weather has really set in), so keep them extra cozy with a quilted pet bed stitched in a winter-blues-blasting color palette!  - Read more

On the other hand... crazy installations!!
alright, alright, kids, settle down. we can all act like adults and enjoy art without pointing and giggling every time there's a nude figure or the shape of a diamond?
OMG!!!, what brilliant art! There was so much string it looks like a cloud of colour... great article as always!

on a completely unrelated note I like the irony of the fact that I'm quite possibly the youngest person posting here and the only one who didn't point the promiscuous diamond ;) hahaha

ROFL!! sorry Dave. I'm sorry, the art is fantastically amazing and I can't even wrap my head around how it is done (with SO MUCH patience and thought!). Really, excellent post on it.... .... but yes, I still see a vagina first thing.... it's almost so distracting that I look past the amazing piece. lol :D

Being an artist, a woman, a mom and a sexual being... I really don't see anything wrong with pointing that out or that it makes me or immature in noting it (re: artspectrum's comment) :) And I'm certain the artist here knew very well what the end result looked like. Some artists tend love controversy in their art. If you don't say it, you're thinking it. :P

What I want to know, is did you choose that one as the header image on purpose? lol It certainly made me click on it with a what the...? (before seeing the article)

I still can't stop looking/studying the layers of string... really impressive.
I like to point and giggle! Too bad for you and your rainbow vag!!

ha! certainly no apologies needed. my comment was all in good fun.

i choose it because i felt it was the strongest image (the blending, the texture, the color, not so much the end point) and it worked well in the format. maybe it was my "unconscious mind" - DAMN YOU FREUD! though truthfully it wasn't my intent to show an image resembling a vagina with the title "spreading..." but funny things happen sometimes - oy.

Ok.... I literally laughed out loud. I totally DIDN'T EVEN catch the "spreading..." combination. ROFL!!!! WAY too funny.

I just had to support my angle on commenting about it. Wow, this HAS been quite entertaining! Good Job! (again)
blue_on_white
Oh no, that's not what I meant at all! I know there's certainly nothing wrong with it and it really was quite funny to see that both of you had made that observation =)

hah I think my comments were mistaken for being too serious. ;)

Thanks! it was a funny topic to laugh about today. :D
Oh man, that thread art is so cool! What a fantastic idea. Also, I want that rainbow pillow.
