Photos of “Drifting in Daylight,” a dreamy pathway of art installed by the nonprofit public art organization Creative Time (@creativetimenyc) in the north end of Central Park in New York City are the focus of this week’s #whereartthou. “The beauty of the park is that you can feel like you are completely lost at times, but you’ll still end up where you want to go,” says Cara Starke, director of exhibitions. “We wanted to create an exhibition that would celebrate this vision.” The works – which include Spencer Finch’s sunset-colored soft serve ice cream; Ragnar Kjartansson’s “S.S. Hangover,” floating along the Harlem Meer; and Alicia Framis’ “Cartas al Cielo,” an invitation to send a postcard to the sky – are on view from noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays until June 20.

The commissions I took on over a year ago are finally being delivered to their owners! Big thanks to the collectors who waited patiently while their drawings were exhibited. @sheja756 got his first, and graciously sent me this photo of Newfounfland/Labrador no.1 ☺️ Check out his stunning landscape shots - we share a deep love of nature.
“I am personally interested in random places that have the ‘Blade Runner’ feel,” says Ryan Allen, a PhD student from New York, who co-created an account (@bladerunnerreality) to post pictures of places that are aesthetically similar to Ridley Scott’s cult film. “We realized we had a lot of photos of a certain kind of architecture or lighting which evoked flashbacks of ‘Blade Runner.’ We both loved the look so we got pretty excited about finding more of it in New York pretty quickly,” adds the other creator, Siddharth Chander, who now works in education in Washington, D.C. They are also fascinated by the craft shown in the film. “The future isn’t clean, like so many other movies depict. It’s just this one little detail that builds this very real-feeling world,” says Ryan. Siddharth adds, “Yes, I think the detail is really inspiring. That kind of thinking resulted in one of the most beautiful films ever. You’d like to see that sort of creativity encouraged more often.” Both Ryan and Siddharth share their own images of ‘Blade Runner’-inspired sightings, and also curate submissions of original pictures on the account.

A season of Marilyn Monroe films at London’s BFI is a cinematic treat and the perfect excuse to dress up in homage to a proper screen siren. Throw in the reissue of 1961’s The Misfits – released nationwide on 12 June – and adding a bit of Marilyn to your look is even more relevant this month. Here …Wearable Tech
