Comments Off on Best of ‘Best-of 2014’ List 

I’m a fan of year-end ‘Best of’ lists. Not so much for the subjective one through ten rating systems, but rather for the nice overview it lends to a year’s worth of media. Below are the Best of: Best of 2014 Lists for hours of click throughs and wasted time. Enjoy.

Visual Inventory: Fall 2014

Oct 16, 2014

(1 comment)

EQ3’s Creative Director, Thom Fougere, is back to share cultural recommendations and findings that are currently inspiring him. His Visual Inventory posts focus on a theme and how he’s seeing it used across different industries (ie. design, film, music, online, photography, etc.).

 

This month’s theme is:

Title

boyhood1

 

 

BOYHOOD

I’ve heard rumblings over the years about Richard Linklater’s secret long-term film project now titled Boyhood. Of course hearing about and speculating about a work of art over a long period of time raises the expectations to a level that is almost unattainable. If anything, boyhood was able to surpass these unreasonable expectations. You can read about it, watch a trailer, but nothing compare to just watching it for the first time. I’ll leave it at that.

 

 

Olafur Eliasson - giant landscape

 

OLAFUR ELIASSON – GIANT LANDSCAPE

I’m always intrigued by what Olafur Eliasson has to say. I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing a wide range of his work in different cities and gallery’s over the past year or so, but this new installation at Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is one I really wish I was able to experience in person. This time Eliasson has filled an entire wing of the museum with a landscape of rocks in order to simulate an indoor riverbed. Quite striking in photos, I’m sure experiencing the installation is something else.

 

 

Makoto_Azuma_Exobiotanica

 

MAKOTO AZUMA – EXOBIOTANICA

Sometimes artists or photographers are able to capture a single gesture with such simplicity, the amount of work and rigour it takes to get to that point vanishes. Exobiotanica perfects this. I viewed the set of images put together by Makoto Azuma out of context, but was slowly able to place the pieces together to understand the beautiful simplicity of the work. You can read about the process, and view more images here.

 

 

Adult_Jazz

 

ADULT JAZZ

I often find myself captivated by the ugly, or misinterpreted. Upon first listen to Adult Jazz, it is hard to see beyond the the ugly and peculiar side of their music. It takes a few listens to completely unravel their tracks, but their music becomes that much more rewarding over time. The best I can describe their sound is the Dirty Projectors with an accent.

 

 

Mjolk_Volume_3

 

MJOLK VOLUME 3

The third volume of Mjolk was released earlier this year in the Spring. John and Juli, good friends and owners of Mjolk, release their Mjolk publication on a yearly basis and visit a variety of craftspeople mostly in the Scandinavia and Japan regions. Volume 3, their best so far in my opinion, visits one of my favourite architects Terunobu Fujimori in Japan, potter Renaud Sauve in Quebec, and break down Minoru Oya’s coffee ceremony.
