MOMENTS | Mash-up: Illustrator Christoph Neimann’s Mixed Visual Mediums

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
You’ve probably seen legendary artist, illustrator and author Christoph Niemann’s work on the covers of The New Yorker, Newsweek andthe New York Times Magazine. Every Sunday, the visual storyteller sets aside to time to play with different visual mediums, which he shares on his Instagram. Examples of his work include combining his illustrations with everyday objects and photographs to create optical illusions. Of course, you can also peruse a more extensive collection of Neiman’s work on his Tumblr

MOMENTS | Mash-up: WeevMee Transforms Your Instagram Feed Into Abstract Art

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
Design agency HUSH developed Weevmee, an app that takes your Instagram photos and weaves them into a one-of-a-kind piece of abstract collage art. Different variables, like the number of photos a user has and the number of likes a photo has, change the look and complexity and density of the image. The app’s software takes your 2014 Insta-photos and crops them into threads before using an algorithm that randomly weaves it all together. 
HUSH created this app to let users create something that “feels artistic enough to grab our attention, but contains enough clarity that it feels uncannily familiar.” It’s your year’s worth of memories transformed into a single, personalized image. The developers plan to expand the software that will allow users to create their image with criteria like geolocation tags or custom start/end timestamps.

Let Lily McZenamy, a model clad in the chicest looks from Repossi, Balenciaga and Miu Miu show you how to do an utkatasana. Namaste.
