Last July, I posted some images from the last archi lookbook and wrote about my experience modeling a few outfits for their fall collection while they were shooting in San Francisco.

January 13, 2011

thanks to a tip from cp, we can add japanese artist, koichi kurita, to our list of dirt-lovers. koichi drives around japan collecting soil samples from various areas, spending the night in his pickup truck. after drying and sifting the dirt, he arranges it lovingly into “libraries” encased in glass tubes or installs precisely-arranged-piles...
