Rossina Bossio‘s third and final installment in the trilogy of videos from The Holy Beauty Project is finally online, one year after its production and official presentation at Saint Claire’s Church Museum in Bogotá, Colombia.
“The Holy Beauty Project is a series of artworks inspired by religious art and fashion, incorporating different media such as painting, drawing, video and performance. Merging visual elements from religious art and contemporary advertising campaigns, the artworks for the project set a parallel between ancient and current icons (celebrities, fashion models, pop and rock stars, etc), to explore the seductive power of images. Simultaneously, it aims to bring forth our inability to exist without hierarchies, and our constantly renewed need for gods/idols capable of making sense out of life’s absurdity…” Rossina Bossio
Bogotá based company Making My specialises in creating personalised boots by using recycled tyre. The best of all is that something that might otherwise go to waste now enjoys a dynamic, new and useful purpose while keeping our landfills less clogged and saving CO2 from being emitted when tyres are burned.
You’ll be able to design and buy your boots online (internationally) from February 2013, but you can follow their page to keep updated and find out more about the brand.
This product is 100% handmade and you can watch the creation below.

It has been years since I listened to Nathaniel Merriweather’s trip-hop act Lovage, but last night (thanks to the wonders of iTunes shuffle) I rediscovered the brilliant ‘Stroker Ace’. An old favourite and one I don’t plan on forgetting about again.
