Step Inside London’s Felt Cornershop

To view more photos and videos from Lucy’s Cornershop, explore the The Cornershop location page, browse the #thecornershop hashtag and follow @sewyoursoul on Instagram.

Look closely at a corner shop in East London and you’ll see everything is not as it seems. The Cornershop, opened in a derelict store in Bethnal Green by artist Lucy Sparrow (@sewyoursoul), is actually an art installation which consists of 4,000 items all handmade from felt! From Heinz Baked Beans to Digestive Biscuits, everything in the shop is hand-stitched and the whole shop took Lucy eight months to assemble.

“I wanted to create something that surrounded people completely,” says Lucy, whose first job was in her local corner shop. “I hope this project reminds people just how much the cornershop cements life in local communities.” The installation runs until August 31.

In what seems to be a new form of parental control, New 3DS consoles will come with a pre-installed filter which limits what websites can be visited using the built in web browser.



#27BiStories: Tell Us Something We Don’t Know

"Although this marks the final installment of our weeklong series, these stories are just the beginning of the conversation. As a nationally syndicated columnist recently illustrated, many people still lack a fundamental understanding about what it means to be bisexual in gay, lesbian, and straight communities. We will continue raising bisexual voices up until that’s no longer the case.

Thank you for reading #27BiStories.”

This is our last day of #27BiStories from bisexual Advocate journalist Eliel Cruz with graphics by Trivo Studio 

Julianne Moore recently came full circle after filming a prominent role in the last installments of The Hunger Games - the forthcoming two-parter Mockingjay - where she worked for a final time with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. 

Moore features as President Alma Coin, another high-profile co-star for Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss. “I did the bulk of my work on the film with Phil,” she says, quietly. Hoffman was her friend and co-star from Boogie Nights, The Big Lebowski and Magnolia. “He had pretty much completed shooting, so I had done all my work with him…”Her voice trails off, a cue for Empire to move on.

She must’ve also enjoyed re-teaming with Hunger Games mainstay Woody Harrelson, we inquire (the two having worked together on The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio and the TV picture Game Change, where Moore played Sarah Palin)? “Oh yes,” she coos. “It was great fun to be with Woody and sometimes you forgot you were in this dystopian fantasy. Then someone would walk by with half their head shaved and there would be weird things coming out of the back of them and you were like, ‘Oh yeah, this is a fantasy movie!’”

Moore’s route into The Hunger Games came, somewhat predictably, through her two children. She picked up her daughter’s copy of the first book in the series while on holiday, when her kids were playing table tennis. “I thought it was great and my children love these books, so for them it is very exciting for me to be in the franchise. Generally, I make movies that they can’t see! And they both love Jennifer Lawrence. She is very, very easy to love.”

Olafur Eliasson installs gigantic riverbed in Danish museum

“Riverbed is running.” So tweeted Studio Olafur Eliasson yesterday – a poetic press release if ever I heard one – to announce the opening of the Danish-Icelandic artist’s latest epic installation. Something of a titan in the art world, having already created moon, he’s now builtriverbed in the south wing of the Louisiana Musuem of Modern Art in Denmark.

Olafur says: “I am interested in how you connect this landscape to the rest of the world and ultimately, how you experience yourself within it.” Visitors can walk along the riverbed, across the pebbles and stones heaped about it, and through the semi-submerged gallery doorways. There’s also a mesmerising model room, full of glowing globes and prototypes. Contained within the stark white walls, the riverbed becomes momentous; there’s no other scenery to distract from it, so it itself becomes magical. Olafur points out that “the further away we get from the local context, the cruder the sensing becomes.”

Just as a river is ever-changing, so is this installation. “Nothing ever remains the same” tweeted the studio, with pictures of the rock piles visitors have already started building. It also retweeted @telescoper: “I don’t know what’s more fascinating, the work itself or the way people behave inside it!”

In other words, riverbed rocks.
