One Wybelenna by Shaun Lockyer Architects

The design, inspired by the work of both Gibson (and Neutra in turn) is a contemporary re-interpretation of the modernist language and remains a narrative throughout the design down to the “orb” fireplace.

One Wybelenna by Shaun Lockyer Architects in Brisbane, Australia

One Wybelenna was a house born out of a remnant of a Robin Gibson cottage that existed on the site and was a bit of a landmark in the area.

Creating Smiles with @willitbeard

For more photos and videos of Pierce’s beard, follow @willitbeard on Instagram.

Instagrammers across the world have been experimenting with using their hair as a home for a variety of inventive looks. US Instagrammer Pierce Thiot (@willitbeard) and his wife Stacy (@stacythiot) embarked on their creative beard collaboration after a family talent show. Pierce explains, “Stacy and I were in Dallas over the Christmas season and we were spending time with my parents. My mom had asked all the grandkids to do a talent show and it was adorable! I decided to try and get a laugh by sticking as many pencils in my beard as possible. A pair of scissors ended up in there, too! After that, I just thought it’d be cool to see spaghetti noodles in there. Then Stacy and I started thinking about what else could ‘beard.’ It’s been a really fun project to work on together.”

Pierce and Stacy say they hope to put a smile on people’s faces with their account: “As long as someone laughs, or smiles, or it makes their day a little bit better, then it’s been a success. We don’t take this project too seriously. We just do it because it’s fun and we want to share some joy.”

British/Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE explores colonialism and the intricate ways in which it has shaped, and continues to shape, cultural identities. He is well known for his life-size sculptural tableaux featuring staged, headless mannequins dressed in elaborate period garments.

In Scramble for Africa,2003, fourteen headless, mixed-race mannequins are seated at a sixteen-foot-long table. They symbolize the European figureheads who came together at the Berlin Conference, 1884–1885, to annex territories of trade in Africa for each of their countries. With regard to colonialism, the absence of heads implies loss of identity and, moreover, loss of humanity. Of this work, Shonibare explains, “I wanted to represent these European leaders as mindless in their hunger for what the Belgian King Leopold II called ‘a slice of this magnificent African cake.

[…] In these works, the materials and designs of the original clothing are replaced with batik, a colorful and ornately patterned fabric. The story of batik itself speaks to the notion of colonization and its effects: it originated in Indonesia; then, by way of imperial explorers, it was introduced to West Africa, where it was appropriated and now has its strongest associations; and indeed its greatest exporters are not in Africa at all, but are Dutch and British. By presenting his version of historical (often white, European) figures dressed in batik, Shonibare “Africanizes” the subjects, subversively pointing out a multitude of deep-rooted mythologies, falsehoods, and prejudices that complicate the dominant narrative of history and identity. - via themodern
