I can’t wait for the day I get to meet Marina Abramović in person or see an exhibit of hers.

This was one of my favorite scenes from The Dreamers. I absolutely love it.

I tend to neglect this blog since I prefer to use Tumblr, so I've decided to start a thing called "ID" which stands for inspiration digest. It's a good way to keep myself organized and also keep this blog running. ID is basically a compilation of visuals that inspire/fascinate/compel me. Most of this is a condensation/simplification of my personal and design Tumblrs. I sifted through this week's post and found my favorites.

Jil Sander is one of my favorite brands. They know how to get minimalism and ad campaigns right. In fact--I don't think I've ever seen an ad campaign I didn't like!

I read about Yayoi Kusama in W about a month or two ago and was surprised to see this show up on my dash. I'd never heard about Kusama before then but she really fascinates me.

It was a spontaneous decision, but I went to watch Rock of Ages with my cousin on Wednesday afternoon. The film itself a bit disappointing but OK, but Diego Boneta on the other hand...
He's one to watch out for.
