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.

Here’s that milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones his very self, seated amongst his busts in front of a portrait of Andy. He had not seen them until he got to the Museum and is still getting over having four more of his own head in the same room. We’re all installed and waiting for the attendees from the RAPID 2013 conference to arrive. Too bad you’re not here.
Here are three of the Four Continents busts of Stephen Jones. There’s one more coming and IF YOU WERE GOING TO RAPID 2013 3-D PRINTING CONFERENCE, you’d be able to see them all, in Murray’s installation at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh on Monday. It’s not too late. You can still register. Also, it’s not raining in Pittsburgh.
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.
Here’s the 3D Lady Bellhaven with hat en route from the truck into the museum.The installation of our eight locations is a big job, especially because we can only work early in the morning and after six at night. But it’s looking GORGEOUS. Here are some pieces already installed.
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.
This morning, Artinfo.com has a great piece on Murray’s upcoming V&A installation for the London Design Festival. This is the 3-D printed hat and bust, designed by milliner to the upper crusty, Stephen Jones, which will go next to Lady Bellhaven in the V&A Sculpture Court. Click on the image for the full article.
