//SKYWALKERS
been wanting to share this for months...

off the site : fwy studios

In 2006, FriendsWithYou opened Art Basel Miami with an event of epic proportions comparable to the Macy’s Day Parade. Toyota Scion commissioned FWY to curate and produce Skywalkers, inflatable procession celebrating the Earth as the newest member of the universal community. Skywalkers featured 18 giant blimps designed by FWY and various artists and included over 300 volunteers, a high school marching band, full event staff, and thousands of attendees. The parade illuminated the skies of Miami’s South Beach, which gained international attention and made the covers of the New York Times online, The Art Newspaper, and The Miami Herald among other publications. Skywalkers represents the magnitude and magic that only FriendsWithYou events can bring to life.

//UNTITLED

It's pretty much end of year again...this comes with clichéd emotions such as feeling worn out and simply needing a break. I suppose I currently find myself in this clichéd mode...
The other day I got the permission to destroy a gallery plinth...unfortunately I wasn't muscular enough, or maybe I was just too lazy....
nonetheless...if you need a break I recommend you break stuff...it might end up being as awesome as the art of SebastianWickeroth

//WOWEE ZOWEE or THE WONDERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
Yesterday, my amigos from welovepictures helped me out bigtime and documented my artworks for my end of year catalogue.I just love how good photographers can make anything look good.Trust me,...these artworks aren't quite as amazing as these awesome pics.Thanks guys...I'm blown away by your MAD SKILLZ.

Ohh....the goofy one of me was us sort of testing the effect of that mad industrial type of fan.It was so incredibly loud that I couldn't hear them instructing me..hence I guess I look so goofy.

guess it helps mentioning that I work with dust...might seem bit random otherwise.







//VAMPIRE 9000

As it is nothing new that I'm a music elitist,...yesss,one of those who can get really annoying and that will keep insisting that they are always in the right I might as well just make this a brief post...
Vampire 9000 is definitely clever people music.If you don't have the endurance to sit through a Battles song, then you can forget it...Vampire embodies the sound of dysfunctional machines mixed with subdues glimpses of emotion...does that make sense?Maybe not, but neither does trying to sum up the force of the Vampire 9000!

//SIMPLY AWESOME IMAGES. I have been a little occupied the last few days, so I haven't really been posting as much as I would've wanted to.NOw that I do have a gap, I don't quite know what to post...Thus, I figured you can never go wrong by simply posting awesome visuals right?Indeed...:P

//PAVEMENT TRAIL by Casey McCusker
check out Casey's extraordinary blog Siblingmine here.


Time: Saturday morning round 9 am


Places: Hazelwood, Maroelana, Alphen Park and Waterkloof

Companion: your best mate

Mood: Market trampling, spruit chilling, movie collecting, pampering planning calamity
Highway exists off N1 Atterbury and (brand new) Garsfontein.


2.Start at Hazel Food Market-a firm favourite amongst locals, which features fabulous food fare and a mountain of tasty treats.You can park your car here for the morning, car touts abound promise to take care of it.Enjoy a coffee and pasteis on bales of hay, absorbing the atmosphere with a Saturday smile.Buy some quality cheese, flaky floury roles, mean Polish salami and a freshly squewezed orange juice for your picnic basket-ready to head off to number 3.

3.Follow Pinaster street down to the Waterkloof spruit, where you can while away a good part of an hour under the bluegum trees,augmented by treacles of water closeby.Gorge on your market goodies whilst spotting cloud shapes and reflecting on the week gone by.

4. Maroelana centre, right on the spruit, houses both Gaslight and the fabulous Chinese supermarket YAt Kee.The former is a specialist dvd and video store to fill your every art house and foreign film fancy, Yat Kee will take care of any Chinese ingredients or other miscellaneous goodies you may need.Good to know, hidden around the corner you can find Full Moon (previously Cafe Arc).Find out what's happening at this alternative lounge- should Metal, Industrial or Goth form the basis of your music library-or not.


5.Explore Cape Connection, a small haven nestled amongst the bustle of east heading traffic.Book some pampering sessions at the centre-titled spa, treat yourself with a fabulous new haircut at Cheveux and enjoy a decent cuppa or recommended chai tea at La Vie. Lastly, pick out some uniquely sourced flowers, such as White King Proteas at Carri' Flora.



6.An interesting stop awaits you at the corner of Garsfontein and Dely at number 6, on the last stretch back to your vehicle on Dely Rd. It's a great spot for an ahem, cigarette, if that indeed tickles your fancy.The grafitti changes infrequently at this bizarre, desolate, half-disposed erf.Pass by the Pretoria Country Club and golf course to your left.The clubhouse and larney drinking hole,The Saffron, is a good place to afternoon tea or for a glass of champagne.Pick up your vehicle and take a short drive up to classic suburban indulgences


thanks Casey for making such a mission...loving this contribution.
