They’ve already surpassed their Kickstarter goal, but it’s not too late to get in on the action! If you have kids, or friends with kids this is a great book to instill wonderful design aesthetics at an early age. Almost makes me wish I had kids. ALMOST.

It’s a fantastic book to pick up for your adult friends as well. It’s a beautifully designed piece and I’m stoked it will see the light of day! It’s awesome seeing Kickstarter used for publishing projects.

If you’re not already hip to Portland’s own Reading Frenzy, swing on by and check them out! Also, make sure to check out the work of Sean Tejaratchi, the talented designer behind A is for Zebra.

“… if I was to take one photo to a lonely island, I would bring hers.”

From their website:

Send us your most valued photograph and share the memory behind it. The best or worst night of your life, a person you love or a friend you have lost, your scariest road trip or the first place you felt home.

There are no restrictions as to what kind of photographs can be submitted. We love brilliant 4×5″ large format, but we also love crappy phone snapshots and everything in between. This is not about impressive photographs, but about those that are especially close to your heart.

The story is just as important as the photo itself and can be anything from a single sentence to a short story, anything from a little anecdote to an intimate memory.

You can submit up to three images and stories via email: submit@romkamagazine.com

text should be in English
photos should be JPEG, < 2?MB
please do not zip your files
don’t forget to include your full name
Deadline: December 1st 2014

The @eidiahouse & the DECONSUMPTIONISTS trailer!

Last week I had the privilege of touring the EIDIA’s “deconsumptionists” “art as archive” trailer, which is currently parked in Toledo. The trailer is an extension of the EIDIA House based in Brooklyn. It is also a mobile archive of the past 30 years of artwork produced by Paul Lamarre and Melissa P. Wolf.

Conceptually it’s a lot to absorb. Each numbered orange bag in the back is a catalog of different projects the two have created and collaborated on, as well as documentation and products associated with the EIDIA house including the art created in Plato’s Cave. From a curatorial point of view, they really seem to love art focused on process.

For example, currently hanging on the trailer’s walls is a piece created by Pia Linz. During her time with EIDIA, she placed herself inside a plexiglass polyhedron and then drew what she saw on the surface of the container. Each triangle piece of plexi ended up being used for print making, with incredible results…

Also on view were binders filled with work, beautifully staged and photographed. Really curious displays that tell the complicated and amazing story of Paul and Melissa’s incredible careers. If ever there was a perfect coffee table art book subject, it’s this.

If you get a chance to check this ever changing display, make a point. And if you’re involved with any spaces or institutions that would like to showcase this inspiring project, reach out directly to the artists! More information can he found at: www.eidia.com
