“LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. They share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. Unconsciously their work touches upon these themes, however it is not their intention to communicate this. They work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.”

“I like to focus on the small nitty gritty details of people’s everyday existences; from passing gossip and menial everyday tasks to unkempt hair and chocolate wrappers that have missed the bin. I gather them all up in my head like a giant scrapbook, and bring them into my work, conserving them in some sort of form before they are past recollection.”—Sanna Dyker

“Uglycorns are a super rare breed. They mostly show up when you’re just about to fall asleep and your ice cream is just about to hit the floor. Or you know how you wake up and think you’re seeing something but really it’s just a jacket on a chair or something like that? Yeah, don’t you hate that?”—Uglydolls.com

For vampire lovers and creative types, you’ll find oodles of inspiration in the land of love hotels and maid cafés, among Japan’s many fantasy themed establishments. When I lived in Japan, one of my favorite places to go was the Christon Café, a lounge filled with decorative relics and church paraphernalia purchased from various churches around the globe. Everything in there was a feast for the eyes! Well, looks like there are a plethora of new places that have popped up around Tokyo recently with equally imaginative themes, like the Vampire Café pictured above.

Caroline Wright is a painter, a cellist, and a yoga instructor who creates dreamy paintings.
“In art, as in life, I am interested in slowing down. Finding vitality in stillness, calm in tumult. Colors unwind at a specific tempo, and the work reveals itself when the viewer walks around inside at a leisurely pace.”—Caroline Wright
