Looking Down

image by Heloise Acher

The canvas under our feet is subject of Héloise Acher's expanding photo blog called Tarmac. Her photographs frame street surfaces as constantly evolving piece of accidental art. They portray the street; its harsh textures, cracks and blemishes. The close-ups also show the street as a display for apparently worthless, lost, used-up, discarded objects. Compositions of these elements which could be summarised as mainly junk, allude to countless untold urban stories. 
The scattered, trampled-on, damaged objects and surfaces are in juxtaposition with the careful way they have been photographed, creating an unsettling aesthetic quality. 
Héloise walks and takes pictures on London's and Paris' streets. Tarmac is part of the B-sights project. Visit the blog.

Allen Keys Alphabet

Today I rumaged through the toolbox (in my newly converted, painted-white, storage-walled workshop/studio). Contents include screws, drill bits, nails, rings, plugs, hooks in many shapes and sizes. After some experimenting I settled on trying to assemble an alphabet with the allen keys, which I seem to have in abundance and in various sizes. As you might suspect I've been to Ikea few times in the past years. Here's some evidence of an afternoon's assembling and re-assembling of allen key - letter shapes. 

Free download of AllenKeys-beta is now available on dafont.
