LIFE Magazine Archives: Behind the Scenes at Disney Studios

Photography // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
Going through the LIFE archives is one of the most enjoyable experience a human can have. Seriously. We came across this really amazing series from a 1953 article titled 'A Silver Anniversary for Walt and Mickey," (that's 25 years to you and I), which captured some behind-the-scenes moments at the Disney studios with animators and Mr Disney himself. 

Devin Troy Strother "Space Jam" @ Marlborough Chelsea, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
Marlborough Chelsea is excited to present a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist, Devin Troy Strother. For his second show with the gallery, Strother will present new large scale paintings and sculptures. The exhibition’s title, Space Jam is taken from the hit 1996 film starring Michael Jordan and the Looney Toons. Conceptually Strother looked towards Space Jam as a sentiment, a film he grew up with, but also a play on words: “space” in relation to being challenged with Marlborough Chelsea’s large space, and “jam” as a verb meaning to do something quickly, art and growth in this case.

"Preserving Human Dignity" by Ben Pawle: The One-handed Condom Wrapper

Design // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
A couple of years ago designer Ben Pawle created a simple design for the project “Preserving Human Dignity”. He successfully did just that, with a simple, awkward life moment that was made easier by a change in package design. As the phrase goes, “it’s the little things in life that make all the difference.” From the artist, “The project evolved from a healthcare project concerning Hemiplegia, a stroke of the womb with debilitating mental and physical effects, with particular focus on how indignity manifests itself when performing simple daily tasks; working to reduce or prevent these moments from occurring by providing an inclusively designed intervention.”

Matija Cop's Unorthodox Fashion Labratory

Design // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
Matija Cop’s designs inspire instant intrigue. What are they made of? Who is the mastermind behind these unbelievable shapes? We tracked down the young Croatian designer, who is not only inspired by throwback futuristic films, but also by literature and architecture. Reminiscent of exoskeletons mixed with futuristic Elizabethan regalia, there is no line between art and fashion in his designs. They are one and the same.
