There’s No Place Like Sports, the ESPN spot that goes beyond victory

There’s No Place Like Sports, the ESPN spot that goes beyond victory

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Art

You know those situations where a person says “It’s not winning, but taking part that counts”, but everyone thinks otherwise? The ESPN commercial “There’s No Place Like Sports” might change your mind. 

Made by the agency Arts & Letters Creative Co., the one-minute video shows a series of sports actions, a very popular and already seen advertising strategy. The strength of the spot lies in the selection of images, such as the victory of 15-year-old Coco Gauff against Venus Williams or the women’s football team of the United States that wins the fourth world, but also injuries, moments of solidarity and the most difficult ones, such as the death of a teammate. 

There’s No Place Like Sports tells a world that is not about victories, but about stories that are worth telling.

Leabidu, between starry skies and alien women

Leabidu, between starry skies and alien women

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Immanuel Kant concluded the Critique of practical reason with a phrase that later became famous, unfortunately, thanks to the Italian brand Baci Perugina:

“Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me”.

We can describe Leabidu‘s work as the fresh, disengaged and pop visual translation of Kant’s quotation, because just looking at the artist’s images one realizes that the fusion between our inner world and the immensity of the universe is possible. Art manages to accomplish incredible spells, overcomes the limits of reason and makes real what would be impossible.

Leabidu’s singular women are apparently icy, blue-skinned characters, reminiscent of Meeme, the alien we find alongside Captain Harlock.

The dimension of the dream is accentuated by the call of romantic, introspective and ethereal atmospheres. If you still don’t follow this artist, the time has come to do so, here you will find on Instagram.

Universe of Words, when every word is a wish

Universe of Words, when every word is a wish

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Universe of Words is an incredible installation of 140,000 pieces of paper and was created by Tokyo-based French architect and designer Emmanuelle Moureaux, known to the public for a long time because of the original use of color in her creations.

The work was designed to celebrate the centenary of a Japanese soft drink company: each piece of paper is cut into a symbol of the Japanese hiragana writing system. Universe of Words was inaugurated this Summer during the Tanabata Festival and is inspired by the Japanese tradition of writing wishes on paper and hanging them on bamboo branches.

“The universe created by these floating hiraganas evokes a strong emotion through its quietness and its infinity”.

The installation features 46 hiragana characters that have been aligned by color in three-dimensional grids. The sections of the installation have been removed so that visitors can come into contact with an immersive and all-encompassing reality.

Universe of Words is part of Emmanuelle Moureaux’s 100 Colors series, if you want to know more, visit the artist’s website here.

Body positive: NSFW illustrations by Anya-Lee Temple

Body positive: NSFW illustrations by Anya-Lee Temple

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Art

Anya-Lee Temple‘s NSFW illustrations are as alluring and flirtatious as their creator. The Instagram @anyaleeart account presents itself to the public as a sort of diary where the artist alternates her works with provocative self-shots that almost always have her body as their subject.

Just on Instagram we find what is the slogan of the artist bodypositive | self positive”, the message is quite clear: there is no eros without love for themselves. You always have to considerate the positive side.

The sensuality of the images is played down by the constant of the millennial pink solid background. The sinuous and charming shapes are very reminiscent of a kind of eroticism that can be traced back to a sort of modern Lolita, citing Nabokov’s masterpiece:

“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta”.

Have a look at the Anya-Lee Temple shop here.
