Wonderplants is the new amazing print series by Sarah Illenberger. Created on a six-week trip to Portugal together with fellow creative and friend Lisa Cepeda, it was made using only the resources that were available, so just the plants , stickers and tape found in local stationery and DIY stores. “Over time I gathered more leaves from the Botanical Gardens in Porto and Lisbon and applied geometric shapes. They were inspired by Portuguese tiles and african fabrics,” Sarah says. The combination of these visual references forms a series that feels both graphic and tribal, have a look at the complete series after the jump!
You Could Sunbathe in This Storm it’s Alice Dunseath’s graduation film from the Royal College of Art, it’s a mixed media animation “where space, forms, colours and sounds symbolise a recognisable world,” she says. “New beginnings put an end to familiar patterns and the viewer is left to wonder whether they shape as much as they are shaped.” Unsurprisingly, it’s been doing the rounds at film festivals and gallery screenings this summer.
