moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.

You can go to Pittsburgh. You can go to the Warhol Museum. But you can’t go to Murray’s installation at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh
And you won’t be able to see the giant 3-D printed Fright Wigs (like the one in the Andy Self Portait) AND get your own portrait taken wearing the wig. Sorry. You can’t come. Unless you register for the RAPID 2013 conference, that is. It really boils down to what you want to do with your life. Do you want to learn about the most exciting technology happening today or not?
There’s a big 3-D printing conference in Pittsburgh (called RAPID 2013) coming up and Murray has curated an installation for Materialise Belgium which will be the Conference opening night event. It’s at the Andy Warhol Museum and you can’t go. Because it’s only for Conference attendees. Sorry. It’s really really too bad you can’t go because it’s going to be groundbreaking and very cool. For instance, this red bust is of London milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones, and it’s one of four, different colors, one for each of four continents, and it’s an example of how amazing the resolution of 3-D printing can be now. And look at the pedestal–this is the first time one has been printed without internal support. You probably don’t know why this is such an innovation, but then, what do you know? You can’t even go to the installation. Click here for more info on the installation and RAPID 2013. Click the photo, then enlarge to see how unbelievable the resolution can be now.
This is the Melonia shoe, 14 pairs of which currently surround the hot and sexy Bed of Ware at the Victoria & Albert Museum, as part of the big 3D printing installation we’ve been writing about. For some reason, this is everyone’s favorite part of the show. Prostitute shoes. Go figure. But get this, friends with feet, this shoe is also totally wearable by non-prostitutes! Yes, yes, it’s true. You, too, could be stepping into the future. Available at Moss in November. Click the pic for more detail on the exhibit.
Here’s the complicated and exquisite Escapism Dress designed by super-up-and-coming fashion designer Iris Van Herpen, as it is in Murray’s installation at the V&A. (We made this shot a little out of focus so you wouldn’t be frightened.) But wait–look below! OMG, it’s the SAME DRESS. On the runway at Iris’s fashion show in January, being worn by an actual human. Right there in the lineup with all those old fashioned sewn together with thread things. So, yeah, 3D printing, crazy and out there as it is, is already here. Get used to it.

Well, maybe not ALL about, there are those giant John Pawson Swarovski lenses at St Paul’s after all, but Murray’s 14 pairs of prostitute shoes surrounding the orgy Bed of Ware do feature rather prominently in Jonathan Glancey’s review in yesterday’s Guardian. Click on the bed for the full monty.
Read all about Murray and the V&A (again) but this time it’s the Independent (a rather big deal London newspaper) which has suddenly discovered the wonderful world of 3D printing. And they are REALLY into it. Click on the pic to go. Or click here to go to the Full Story on the Mother Ship.
