MOMENTS | Mash-up: Model Coco Rocha Draws Posing Inspiration From Botticelli  Michelangelo In Her New Book Study of Pose: 1,000 Poses


We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
Shortly after appearing in Jean Paul Gaultier’s 2007 runway, Canadian model Coco Rocha’s expressive body language earned her the title “Queen of Pose”. Photographed by Steven Sebring, Rocha’s new book The Study of Pose: 1,000 Poses features the iconic model in Renaissance sculpture-like poses, drawing inspiration from the likes of Botticelli’s Venus and Michelangelo’s David.

MOMENTS | Collage: #FBF Artist Matthew Stone’s Body Language Combined Sculpture x Photography To Create Cut/Paste Collage Art Cubes


We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
In his Body Language exhibition, Matthew Stone, London-based artist, took sculptural cubes and linked them to collage art with cut-and-paste photographs of the human body. The photographs, which were also shot by Stone, used the interplay of light and darkness “to invoke and create history, rather than to document it”.
The collaged sculptures of the human body in Body Language were a rejection of simple binaries. Instead, the cut-and-paste bodies represented the conflicting realities in our politically and religiously polarized world.
