Iris Van Herpen PFW14
New in the Biorequiem shop. This deluxe set is a collection of six Alien Botany mini-prints, printed in dull crimson on tattered, textured cotton rag. Each collection is unique, some with hand-added details.
2174 AD. Five years ago, a shipwrecked cosmonaut from the exploratory mission Novy Mir documented the flora of an unknown planet in quadrant NQ3 while waiting for a rescue mission. Her notes and sketches were found inside a charred capsule adrift in the Arctic Ocean. The scientific community, awed by what she discovered, has been attempting to decode the increasingly incoherent words and pictures ever since.
Anonymous asked: Since you're such an accomplished artist, have you ever tried your hand at anything from the "crafting" realm? Knitting, felting, pottery, embroidery etc, or was that never really an interest of yours?
Do cooking and food presentation count? Because I’ve gotten pretty good at that over the past year, if I do say so myself. Other than that, nothing comes to mind and I’ll probably never be zen enough to allow myself the time necessary to take up anything of the sort.
Anonymous asked: Dear Zoetica, Do you like/know Suehiro Maruo?, I think he's aesthetical taste it's not that far away from yours....
Well, I’ll take that as a (somewhat surprising!) compliment. I love his work, thanks!
contra-band asked: Hey Zo. So now the big reveal of the website is immiment, would you care to share your next plans? Where does the compass point?
Hi! As a matter of fact, the new Biorequiem.com is live as of yesterday, and she’s lookin’ mighty fine in a slick, responsive one-page design.
On the menu: new art in the shop, new photo galleries of various travels in the “Places” section (with more still in the pipeline), and new portfolio and projects sections, too.
Now, I’m continuing to work on my intergalactic naturalist series, Alien Botany, delving into the behavioral dynamics of the specimens.
I’m also working on Alien Botany’s first appearance in the world of fashion. But that’s mostly under wraps, for now.
Proud of Stephane Halleux’s Oscar win for Mr. Hublot! Remember my interview with him in Coilhouse? Co-directors Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares were the official nominees, but it’s all Stephane’s character designs and universe, and he was at the ceremony to share the spoils. Wooee!
Just re-watched Bilal’s Immortal and it’s still as awful as I remember, but there is just so much in the universe and character design there that I resonate with, that I manage to get through the mess of everything else, somehow. And it is a big mess, but dammit, at least they tried.
multiverseofawesomeness asked: Hey I would like to commission you for a very important project of mine. How do I go about doing that?
Hi there! Please email a description of your project to zoetica (beep) gmail (boop) com for a quote and further discussion.
It may take me a few days to respond, but I’ll get back to you ASAP
