My name is David York Münster. This is my life's weBlog, containing inspirational and creative topics I come across living the life of a multimedia designer. Some posts are of personal nature, others are just pictures or texts that spark my creativity and interest in life.

INSA’s world is one where art, product, graffiti, fetishism, and desire collide.
INSA is a fine artist and designer who has established himself from a graffiti background through extensive street level work and gallery shows around the world. INSA’s canvases and installations are often hyper real, finely crafted creations in which sexual desire and commodity-fetishism merge and contrast. Always with a heavy sense of irony, INSA visually exaggerates the notion of objectification meets commodification with graphically depicted oversized body parts that are suspended in the controlled architectural lines of a sneaker or bold black and white graphic patterns.
Eric Standley works with hundreds of layers of colored paper creating intricate laser cut stain glass windows. These beautifully constructed works are made up of interlacing positive and negative spaces that seem to “float” in a fabricated suspension.
These stunning lamps designed by Edward Chew are made from recycled Tetra Pak cartons which were cut into strips, folded into hundreds of pieces, and then assembled without the use of any adhesives. The designer was able to create a variety of different lamp styles using the same origami module, and says that individuals can use it to create their own lamps. This design is a fantastic example of how a waste product can be re-purposed into a highly functional, and tasteful piece of furniture.
If you like crafts, this lamp is a project for you. Tetrapak cartons used to form small triangles will paste together to form a hexagon.
Then use a balloon to position the hexagons and form a sphere. Remember to leave a space big enough to fit the bulb. Blow up the balloon and put a bulb inside the lamp. Enjoy!
