BAPTISTE DEBOMBOURG

Some shots of different pieces of work by BAPTISTE DEBOMBOURG. Thanks to BUMBUMBUM for directing me to the work.

I think I love 90% of work that relates to architecture, the built environment, installation art, urban environments, text, interventions, etc. This stuff seems to tick all the boxes… What do you think? I’d like to start using my blog as a means of generating discussion, critical or otherwise, so use the comments if you have anything you’d like to say!

CHERNOBYL

I just read an amazing account of an author’s [Henry Shukman] exploration of ‘Europe’s strangest wildlife refuge, an enchanted postapocalyptic forest from which entirely new species may soon emerge.’

For anyone interested in Chernobyl, wildlife, subversive spaces, architecture, or even psycho-geography and art, this is a must read.

I saw the link on Twitter thanks to bldgblog << who you should follow if you're not already.

Find the text HERE, and let me know what your thoughts on it are.

DESIGNING

I’ve come to realise I’m just not very good at regularly updating my blog. So I’m thinking now that something short and sweet, more frequently, is better than one fat update, hardly ever. (Or indeed no updates at all).

I’ve been busy designing some men’s jewellery, which is now being made. Exciting! In fact, I’m really excited about this project and can’t wait to show you all what I’ve been working on.

I’m working with LUKE ANTHONY, a great bloke who makes jewellery. You should check out his SITE too because his own range is top. It’s actually so good that it has been featured in this month’s (March) issue of VOGUE mag. Special or what!
