this morning i’m living in a trifecta of small world-ness. first i heard from stephen orr, who used to work with me at the house & garden and domino, then i checked out his site and fell in love with these gorgeous paper florals that his friend johanna burke created (doesn’t she sort of look like drew barrymore in that picture? so cute). then i realized that johanna was married to matt dilling from lite brite neon, who was one of the first artists i ever covered, and used to work a few blocks down from me. sometimes nyc can feel so big it’s overwhelming, but then other times it feels like we’re all in the same high school cafeteria waving across tables to friends. anyway, this installation that johanna created for luxury dept. store in korea is calling my name this morning. oh to live in that window and be surrounded by venus fly traps made of carefully folded paper. click here to read more of stephen’s beautiful blog.
