McDonald’s paper bag cut-out from Yuken Teruya’s Notice-Forest series.
Intricate and detailed cut-outs by artist Yuken Teruya.
From his website:
Yuken Teruya manipulates everyday objects, transforming their meanings to reflect on contemporary society and culture. Cutting trees out of paper bags and cardboard toilet paper rolls, he creates meticulous and intricate art works, small and enchanting worlds, which relate to broader concerns. In each bag and roll, the shape of a tree is created without adding or removing anything, just by cutting out and folding the paper from the bag itself. Teruya’s works explore issues such as the growing consumerism of contemporary society, depleting natural resources and other problems associated with globalism, including the threat it poses to localized cultural traditions and identities.

T-shirts designed by Stella McCartney and are available in four varieties: The Beatles, Madonna, Morecambe and Wise and a bunny for the kids (I might buy the bunny one anyway, if I dig my teddy bear out of the closet he might like it). If you haven’t already picked one up, get to your nearest TK Maxx or buy online here. Also the noses are brilliant this year.
OK, so Red Nose Day doesn’t happen ‘til the 13th of March, so what, I have too many memories of people painting themselves red and still being red 5 days later to not get excited about this.
School of Seven Bells - Half Asleep
What begins as an unguarded train of thoughts slowly can become an addiction to the slumber of disconnection and the resonance of memory that no longer has a shape but keeps you numb through the hours till gone is another day.
I was going to try and explain why I like this song so much but I’ve given up. Read the lyrics above, think “what the fuck, how does that work?” then take a listen and don’t look back.
