We Are Handsome

These swim suits are so gorgeous, but at £200 they're slightly out of budget.

Obsessions Make My Life Worse and My Work Better

As somebody who attempts to make art I feel as if I should constantly be collecting and documenting my findings. As I have realised this soon turns into an obsession and I find myself stacking and bagging up absolutely everything and never throwing anything away. Even the tiniest scrap of nothing is kept just in case it will come in useful at some point, which it usually does albeit five years later. This installation by Sagmeister Inc. illustrates my dilemma in the middle of Waagdragerhof Square, Amsterdam with 250 000 Eurocents. The coins were sorted into piles of 'darkest', 'less dark', 'less light' and 'lightest' to add depth to the letter forms and make them more legible. Being somebody who gets stressed with clutter it seems to be a bad idea to hold on to every morsel of potential media but it does in fact make for better artwork. So is it all worth it?
