Artist Carsten Holler’s slow-moving swing-chair “Mirror Carousel” at the New Museum in New York.
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!
