Afri-Cola

March 29, 2009

In 1968 Charles Paul Wilp, an ad man, designer and artist, was charged with rejuvenating the German soft drink brand Afri-Cola. The result demonstrates an astonishingly avant-garde sensibility for broadcast television. The spots feature models and singers of the 60s and 70s such as Marianne Faithfull, Amanda Lear, Donna Summer and Marsha Hunt. Super-sexy-mini-flower-pop-op-cola – alles ist in Afri-Cola!

It appears that Issue 3 of Tare Lugnt will be limited to one unique copy. Kind of reminds me of Shelly Jackson’s Skin project.

Oshatz Organics

March 22, 2009

May sound like a local dairy, but I’m referring to the organic architecture that Robert Harvey Oshatz has been designing in the Portland area since the 1970s. I don’t know what to make of some of his projects, so I’ll let his website do the talking:

“While most architects today are specialists who associate with other specialists, Robert Oshatz is a generalist who associates with specialists.”

Got to see several works from this series last year in Berlin and was really impressed by their precision and rhythm. Now at the Whitney.
