!! OMG, WATCH: Orville Peck takes you inside his Mid-Century LA Tree-house with AD !!

Orville Peck tours his mid-century tree house. Tucked away in the trees of Los Angeles, the nearly 7,000 square-foot property was built during Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1944 and Peck couldn’t imagine a home better suited to him. Terracotta tiles pair perfectly with original aging wood features giving the indoor-outdoor feel you’d hope for when living in the trees. Second-hand treasures left behind by previous owners (including Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante) fill the space alongside treasures Peck has collected giving his home a personal touch. “To be honest, I never thought I’d be able to own a house,” says the artist, “But when I saw this place, it felt absolutely perfect…Everyone always jokes that they don’t know who else could live here because it feels like it was made for me.”

!! OMG, they’re the cats of Brutalism !!

Brutalist architecture emerged during the 1950s in the UK and are characterised by minimalist constructions that showcase the bare building materials and structural elements over decorative design. @cats_of_brutalism adds giant cats to such buildings to insert some weirdly funny retro-futuristic feeling into them.

!! OMG, AI creates a world where Harry Potter spends his weekends at Berghain in Berlin !!

No amount of Club Maté fizzy tea water could have ever kept us awake long enough to think we’d see a day where Harry Potter could be so accurately depicted within the techno-mecca of Berlin. His pals look oh-so-Berlin and fit into the world effortlessly.

!! OMG, Arca shares clip from her performance series Mutant;Destrudo commissioned by the Park Avenue Armory in New York. !!

Artist, musician, producer, and trans icon Arca has shared a clip from her performance series Mutant;Destrudo earlier this month which was commissioned by the Park Avenue Armory in New York.

Directed by Arca, Mutant;Destrudo congregates her close friends and collaborators around a shared vision of creating space to allow for deconstruction of preconceptions. This ambitious new project is steeped in electronic music sound design to induce various states of embodied physicality and synthesize new ways to mediate both the ego and identity at large. The resulting Armory commission continues her ongoing practice of creating instances which merge all forms of creative practice, reexamining the ritual of the concert as a moment of heightened connection between those present.

It’s dystopian, grating and unnerving. Just the way we like things around this time of year!


!! OMG, don't miss these !!
