In Bali for a project with Insight 51. The black sand beaches are sparkly!
This is the beach house I’m staying at.
Thanks to Steve Gorrow for making this happen.
More photos (and installation shots!) coming soon.
Magda is working up a BIG project at Etsy headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This is the beginning. We stopped by today to get a feel for the installation, make some friends and eat some amazing food.
Julie is coordinating the project with Etsy, and Arnetta is opening up new worlds over at the Fashion Institute of Technology. This installation could not be happening without these amazing people and many more at the Etsy Labs.
And yes, we even covered the protruding vents – it’s an homage to Granny Squared after all. Stay tuned for the real airduct cozy extravaganza coming up soon…

Marfa is a magical mecca for modern art in the West Texas desert. Unlikely? A little bit. Donald Judd immigrated there from New York in the 70′s, acquiring old ranches, military forts and other old west type buildings and reclaiming them with his art. Since his death in the 90′s, tons of artists have continued to trek to Marfa, or live there. Enter El Cosmico. It’s like a hotel of sorts, but the rooms are these nifty Airstream trailers. Last weekend Magda took a carload of knitting and friends to dress up one of the trailers.
So yeah – if you’re looking for an escape anytime soon, go stay in the knitta’d Airstream! Check out El Cosmico’s Trans-Pecos Festival of Music and Love coming up on September 24-25. Also, there’s the first annual Marfa 100 — a 62 mile/100k benefit bikeride for the fight against cancer. Continue reading
SKY.it posted a video with a sneak peak of Il Lusso Essenziale, the Roman festival I tagged this month. And yes – that’s right. My first gallery installation. The video is all in Italian, but the article is handily translated by google here. Thanks Rome, for being good to me.
More recap and pictures coming soon.
I’ve discovered that knitting and drinking can be a lovely combo… Especially when it involves Venice and a spritz. The “spritz” was invented in this town and is quite refreshing….if you like bitters. It is a combination of white wine, soda, and Campari with an olive.
Another beautiful day in Venezia. I don’t think you ever have to take professional shots of this city, because it is so effortlessly beautiful.
I’m finally posting about the rest of my adventures in Venezia!
The food here was overwhelming. I have passed by so many displays of sweets, cheeses, and ice creams.
Yesterday was my first day in Venice, and it is AMAZING of course. What struck me immediately were the clothes lines everywhere. They look so beautiful in the sunlight and the happy breeze. It feels like it they are a decorative feature on the cobblestone streets. They are on every corner, it seems.
