I’ve always thought that once I get my hands on a time machine, one of my initial trips will be to 1979 to see if my mom would think I was cool enough to hang with her in Des Moines. “If I Had Known My Mother Back Then” is a more accessible experiment in the same vein.
For her latest project, artist Danielle Delph edited herself into photos of her mother as a child and teenager. The result is touching and the pieces are seamless: it is not even immediately obvious who is the mother and who is the daughter. Read More

I hope Jenny Slate catches this post, because I have found all of Marcel the Shell's friends and family. Thanks to artist, graphic designer, and owner for Green Ink Studio, Inka Mathew's teeny tiny personal project, "Tiny PMS Match," she has bestowed us with yet another terribly adorable procrastinating tool. Mathew's project matches miniscule, everyday objects to their Pantone® color equivalences, photographs them with her iPhone, and it is so god damn CUTE.

My Milk Toof is a series of stories inspired by baby teeth. I'd never heard of the term before, but artist Inhae Renee Lee is fascinated by "milk teeth," AKA your primary teeth.

Artist and designer Mike Perry opted to celebrate the release of his monograph Wondering Around Wandering in a non-traditional way: instead of a standard launch party, Perry created a pop-up exhibition of the same name in his Brooklyn neighborhood. The warehouse-turned-gallery eventually gained a new use as a community art space, playing host to pumpkin-painting parties, school groups, art workshops, and performances.
As with all good things, Wondering Around Wandering’s three-month residency is coming to a close…and you—yes, you!—are invited to come celebrate. Read More
