Nick Cave’s Soundsuits at the Boston ICA

To see more photos and videos of Nick Cave’s colorful creations, explore the Institute of Contemporary Art location page.

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave constructs his signature “Soundsuits”—vivid, noise-making costumes—from discarded and rediscovered materials. The suits’ varied and whimsical forms directly reflect Cave’s training as a dancer and are often used in dance performances.

The Soundsuits’ origins are darker than their vibrant colors might suggest. Cave created his first suit in 1992 as a response to the Rodney King beating. He told the Washington Post, “I built this sort of suit of armor, and by putting it on, I realized that I could a make a sound from moving in it. It made me think of ideas around protest, and how we should be a voice and speak louder.”

Cave’s suits, along with several freestanding sculptures and paintings, are on display at the Institute of Contemporary Art through May 4.

Relating to the current mural I’ve been planning on taking part in, this article took my interest. 
The way that art can change, and influence society is an interesting thought? attracting the public to an area, gaining attention and all that jazz. 
Maybe something I should look further into? 
Not SURE! but definitely an interesting read :)

‘Speaking in tongues (prattle)’ Bic biro drawing on 1950s music sheet

I dont think i’ve ever seen anything like this before! Mark seems to capture some form of forgotten beauty in these old pieces of papers, envelopes, letters and texts. These bic/biro pen drawings of people, carry a lot of emotion in my opinion  and i just love how they’re not on just any ordinary paper, i think the two working together creates a beautiful piece of work… 
this make me think of mail art and the envelopes i’ve placed around Falmouth for the anonymous letter project…

seems like something good to experiment with to pass the time? :) dkbechmann:

sketchbook.
right: the first blob — part of a bonding-over-blobs drawing exercise with my friend Aisha. we’d draw a random shape with our eyes closed or our non-drawing hand then continue to fill them up with the first things that come to mind.
we tried to make one a day for the month of June and it worked for a while but stuff got in the way. we still bond over blobs though so it’s all good.

Blob bonding!
