In graphic design, nothing is what it actually is. Everything other than content is representative of something else. Additionally, much of the content is also merely representative of something other than what it actually is.

Tokyo-based artist Koshi Kawachi recently demonstrated his “Manga Farming” technique — which uses old manga as a growing medium for vegetables — by cultivating a crop of radish sprouts in an installation at the Matsuzakaya department store in Nagoya.
Back when it was being promoted, some of the people behind Inglourious B*stards teamed up with Upper Playground to create a number of commissioned pieces based on the film. The resulting batch of artwork included images by Alex Pardee, Sam Flores, David Choe, and about 10 others, and none of them ever saw the light of day. Now, they will be released as VERY limited art prints to benefit the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Each print will have a tiny edition of 6, they will be signed by Quentin Tarantino, and they will be priced at $300. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross. They will become available tomorrow (Thursday, February 18th) from 6pm-9pm at the Los Angeles Upper Playground store (125 E. 6th St.). For more info, visit UpperPlayground.com.
Outdoor Fireplace by Haugen/Zohar Architects
Together with the standard playground facilities we wished to combine an enclosed space for fire, storytelling and playing.
Given a very limited budget, reusing leftover materials (from a nearby construction site) was a starting point that led the design to be based on short wooden pieces. Inspired by the Norwegian turf huts and old log construction, a 5,2×4,5 meters wooden construction was built and mounted on a lighted and brushed concrete base. The structure is made of 80-layered circles. The circles have varied radiuses and relative centre point in relation to each other. Every circle is made out of 28 pieces of naturally impregnated core of pine that are placed with varied spaces to assure chimney effect and natural light.
Oak separators differentiate vertically between the pine pieces to assure airflow allowing easy drying of the pine pieces.
A double curved sliding door was designed for locking the structure.
Nice examples of typgography used as elements in art.
