A portrait of Inna, muse, artist and designer.
Ukranian-born and Berlin-based, Inna draws on her life, the people she meets, the places she visits and the world around her, to create simple jewellery in bold, timeless metal, precious and semi-precious stones.
From the Brutalism of the Soviet-style architecture she remembers from her childhood, to the rhythms of modern-day Berlin and Paris, Inna develops her identity.
In her subterranean Berlin workshop, she designs and hand crafts her pieces. From conception to creation, designing to finishing, Inna focuses on simplicity, luxury and realizing the hidden potential of form, immortalizing memories and moments in metal. From one-off bespoke pieces, including engagement and wedding rings to complete collections, she sells online, in selected outlets worldwide and has been exhibited at Paris Fashion Week for four consecutive years.

In his easiest manner of a humanist, French artist JR recently finished a large scale project “One Thousand Stories” - the Chronicles of San Francisco, and a video mural of 1206 San Franciscans now on the view at @SFMOMA
The film directed by Tasha van Zandt is currently exhibited at SFMOMA alongside of JR’s mural. After a first mural in Les Bosquets, a neighbourhood near Paris where he has worked for many years, JR chose San Francisco. A city very rich in contrasts, whose recent history could be told in a powerful way through a mural. Since the visit of Diego Rivera in 1931, San Francisco has a long muralist tradition. The city features immense innovation and wealth as well as one of the highest rates of homelessness in the country. In, 2018, JR and his team spent a month roaming the city of San Fransisco, parking their 53' trailer truck in 24 different locations, to capture anyone who wished to participate, directly from the streets. As a result, over 1,200 people have been filmed, photographed and interviewed; each person choosing the way they are represented in the fresco.
“Slow Lens is the newest piece from French artist Vincent Leroy, who often explores optics and light in his large-scale installation work. The piece is suspended from above, and a network of curved, translucent lenses distorts the viewer’s perspective. Displayed en plein air, the connected lenses slowly rotate and ofter multiplied visions of the surrounding environment. Leroy installed and documented Slow Lens in various locations around Paris, including in highway lanes that were vacant due to pollution-induced city traffic restrictions.” via @Colossal
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Louvre Pyramid, @JR is creating a collaborative piece of art on the scale of the Napoleon Court. Three years after having made the Pyramid disappear, the street artist is about to bring a new light to the famed monument by realizing a gigantic collage.

Presenting a film inspired by thoughts from actress - Destiny Nolen (@miss_destiny_nolen). Directed by Clément Oberto, Unacceptable Behavior is a light poem about youth and loneliness. It is narrated by Georgia Feroce and guided by a subtle and sensitive score, composed by John Tejada (@johntejadaofficial). Clément Oberto created a film which follows a woman on the edge, someone who feels too much, a fragile and strong soul, always on the verge between bursting into tears or into generous and beautiful smiles.
Clément Oberto is French director and producer living in Los Angeles. His work revolves mostly around the feminine figure in music videos, commercials and Art films.
Elodie Milan is a french photographer very inspired by paintings from The Renaissance.
She sacralizes her friends and empowered them with lights from Caravage and sometimes thanks to their clothes, an other big theme in her work
Obsessed with black and white, the contrast is the source of his creativity, fascinated by the pop art movement and our contemporary pop culture, Nairone use elements from everyday life, his work is inspired by personal experiences from his childhood and the links with the milieu in which he lives mixed with his contrasted vision.

Ludwig Favre travels the world documenting its wonders in a way that elevates their look, creating an almost surreal, paint-like quality to the very landmarks we probably take for granted. From the front-facing wall of a building, to national parks, the designs of universities, pristine beaches and cityscapes around the world.
Below is his latest series “Oregon”
Motion Motion is the first event dedicated to the motion design and meanwhile, opened to all audiences. One day in Nantes (FR) with conferences, installations, workshops and concerts for everyone.
nöbl created the festival 2018 whole identity and craft the trailer by playing with a distorted typography treatment:
As the motion design, the concept of this identity talks about graphic design and movement. We choose to play with the most impactful visual system "typography" and then put it literally in movement.

"Romain Laurent has a knack for creating striking photos—images you can’t un-see, the kind you just have to click on. With his work it’s often hard to tell what you’re looking at, which elements are digitally composited, and what’s real (is any of it?). “Inner Dialogue” is more obvious its trickery, but nothing here is over-edited. Less is always more and he uses just enough." via Bo7M
The Japanese design firm teamLab has announced a 2,000 square meter exhibition at La Villette, Paris. It plans on forming a vast space allowing visitors to interact with a digital world through their own bodies. Named “”Au-Delà des Limites” or “Beyond the Limits,” the showcase blurs the lines of reality and creates multiple installations representing different realms. Visitors will be able to walk through virtual waterfalls and natural wonders.
The presentation will be available from May 4 to September 4, launching right before Japonismes 2018, a cultural event marking the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and France.
teamLab (f. 2001, Tokyo, by Toshiyuki Inoko) is an interdisciplinary group of ultra-technologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, technology, design and the natural world. Rooted in the tradition of ancient Japanese Art and contemporary forms of anime, teamLab operates from a distinctly Japanese sense of spatial recognition, investigating human behavior in the information era and proposing innovative models for societal development
