isabella rossellini : green porno series

Isabella Rossellini dreamed up this incredible video series, titled Green Porno, to artistically display and explain the mating rituals of different types of insects and animals. It’s an avant-garde nature show and her costumes, sets and dramatic narrative are really remarkable. Plus it’s truly informative, carefully researched and surprisingly bold.

Here are some great stills from the series, but you can watch the collection of films on the Sundance Channel site.

What a cool solution. The Swedith interior stylist, Annaleena Leino, made this hand-forged iron cursive clothing hanger for her home. She’s considering producing them — I vote yes!

She makes a few other clothing hangers for retail with similar structures but in a variety of shapes, pictured below as well.

For a special client’s birthday dinner, I used resistance fluid to create these watercolor washed place cards on soft Arturo paper. Here’s a video of the indigo watercolor being applied — I found it mesmerizing!
