After M10 with its disastrous logo, I think the art of Magic the Gathering is uplifting again as we see the spoilers from Zendikar, the upcoming expansion set that will be released in late September. Here is the logo that I dislike very much:
And here are the spoilers about what you’ll find if you open Zendikar’s Intro packs:
On the other hand, if you go and buy the fat pack or open a booster for Zendikar, the artwork will be something like this:
And here are the full art releases for these two examples:
I don’t know if I have any works in this exhibition at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum, but I’d be delighted to find out if I do. If I don’t have anything there, I guess it’s okay, since I have only been producing something in Sabancı University for just a year. I’m looking forward to this exhibition and will be visiting tomorrow. Here’s the description of the exhibition, Flow:
“The Flow exhibition is the moment to engage with three years of work within the VA VCD program at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Sabanci University. The exhibition covers the period from 2007 to 2009, showcasing the students’ creative practices. Flow will be exhibited at Sakıp Sabancı Museum between 10-16 August 2009.
The theme of the exhibition this year is Flow and focuses on the work in progress and ideas that students have developed during their course of study. These are projects that have been presented as academic papers or exhibited in international artistic and professional venues.
The exhibition of students’ work is an opportunity to engage with new ideas by the new generation on the future of the creative industry and present the talents nurtured by skilled professionals in the VA VCD program at Sabanci University.
I think lego fans would like how lego blocks are used by Jan Vormann, by filling the gaps in actual old brick or stone walls, name it as “Dispatchwork” and describing it as “playfully conquering public space”. The idea is lovely, and the looks of it is as well. This work has been done in several cities such as Bocchignano, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Amsterdam, Belgrade, Arnsberg and St. Petersburg.
