Vintage-Inspired Illustrations by Gosia Herba Are Sorta Dark… And I like It [feedly]

Gosia Herba

Gosia Herba is a Polish illustrator whose editorial images feature larger-than-life women, reflections that have a mind of their own, and other surreal situations. It's this, coupled with her vintage-inspired style (even some elements of Cubism thrown in there!), that initially drew me to her work.

I love illustrations that offer me something beneath the surface. Goisa's work looks wonderful, but it's also strange and a little dark, and it leaves a lasting impression on me.

About 3 months ago photographer Dan Tobin Smith set up a website to ask the public to donate kipple: junk that was lying around their house. "It's time to free yourself of the pointless or unused objects in your life," read the plea. "Give them a purpose as part of Dan Tobin Smith's installation for the London Design Festival 2014."

Sure enough, the donations began coming in and in no time at all Smith had enough junk on his hands to create a sprawling installation that filled an entire floor and mezzanine, "carpeting 200-square-metres with a dense, precise, chromatically-themed arrangement of thousands of objects." The objects are so carefully placed that gradients seem to blend together seamlessly.

The fictional word Kipple was coined by science fiction writer Philip K Dick. Kipple appears in his 1968 novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" (the film adaptation was Blade Runner) and is used to describe useless, pointless stuff that humans accumulate. It served as the inspiration for Smith's installation "The First Law of Kipple," which was part of London Design Festival this month. (via Creative Review)
