On Line at Carsten Holler

We’re checking out the Carsten Holler Experience exhibition at the New Museum. There’s a long line of people out the door. Yesterday, the line was just as long in spite of the freezing cold and snowstorm. Holler’s show looks like it’s going to be a big hit.

“Objectified”

It’s movie night tonight at Global Graphica HQ. While everybody else is pre-Halloween partying, we’re staying out of the blizzard conditions here in New York City and staying in to watch the documentary film “Objectified” (see the trailer and poster below).

Directed by Gary Hustwit, who gave us the font-doc “Helvetica,”the feature-length “Objectified” is about the design of the objects we encounter and use in our daily lives.

We had a chance to see this film when it was theatrically released a couple of years ago, but fate intervened and we couldn’t make it to the screening. Since then, we’ve caught bits and pieces of it. And now, finally, we’re getting a chance to see the whole film. Yay!
