Visiting Mari Andrews’s studio is like stepping into an old-world apothecary’s shop, where rows and rows of small glass jars are filled with specimens gathered on her hikes through Muir Woods, and beyond: molted snakeskins, seedpods, smooth-surfaced stones, rusted bits of wire, tufts of moss, and more … Mari’s work and studio make you encounter overlooked objects in a newly intimate way; a dried leaf or fallen acorn become dazzling when seen out of context and leave you a little more curious, a little more awake to the natural world, than when you arrived.
Aspen Magazine, 1965-1971. The cult magazine of the Sixties. New York. Via pbagalleries. Docu of the complete edition here.
Aspen was the first three-dimensional magazine. "In calling it a ‘magazine,’ we are harking back to the original meaning of the word as ‘a storehouse, a cache, a ship laden with stores." Under the leadership of Phyllis Johnson it was loaded with flexi vinyls, a Super 8 film, books, posters, cards and more. Each issue had a different theme and editor, many artists worked for the Aspen editorial, like Warhol, Sontag, Cage. More on Video: Whitechapel Gallery
