May the Force be with you...



Since you guys asked, our Maika was Princess Leia for Halloween. This was due to 1. a sewing-challenged mommie who couldn't quite get her act together and 2. Maika's buddy, Hayden deigned to be Luke for the day. 

The whole costume was glued together. I ♥  Fabric-Tac.

The Art of the Dinner Party


Jennifer Rubell creates food projects that are a hybrid of performance and installation art. This particular occasion was a wedding at the Saatchi gallery where guests were invited to dine on unmade beds.

At the Brooklyn Museum Gala, a mountain of chips were served with tubes of mayonnaise in the background. Watch the video here.
