“Endlessly curious. My work primarily involves the use of embroidery. I am interested in collapsing the boundaries between traditional and popular cultures and exploring the links that exist between these two. My work examines how this particular mishmash manifests itself in modern times, especially concerning modern youths. Preferring to work with craft-based techniques, I am attracted to the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centered age of today.” -© Izziyana Suhaimi
The Geode Project is made by artist A Common Name who, instead of using traditional paint, uses paper in 3D to form sculptures and fit in building holes and random pipes around Los Angeles. The amazing paper shapes represent crystal formations and bring real-life magic to everyday surroundings.

“In 2011, Something Else worked with Australian icon, Ken Done, to produce an exclusive capsule for its ‘Submerged’ collection. Something Else Art Director George Barnes took Done’s widely renowned coral reef paintings (spanning from 1970 to 1990) and digitally remixed them. Barnes adjusted colours, contrasts and using repetition, created a new take on this symbolic art – very much reflective of a new age aesthetic. The end result culminated in a collection of printed textiles including kaftans, pants, dresses, shirts and swimwear”.
