The legendary, visionary, and Gothic Futurist, Rammellzee (RIP) just had an exhibit open of his Letter Racers at Suzanne Geiss in NYC. If you don’t know, Rammellzee was a man of mystery, creating his own language and visual language that is beyond original. It comes from another planet. The exhibit is up through April 21, 2012.

“In the 14th Century the monks ornamented and illustrated the manuscripts of letters. In the 21st and 22nd century the letters of the alphabet through competition are now armamented for letter racing and galactic battles. This was made possible by a secret equation know as THE RAMMELLZEE.”

“Suspended in the interstice between the metaphysical and the material, the 52 Letter Racers displayed in this show are poised to activate and attack. Constructed from urban detritus – Canal Street perfume caps, spray can triggers, and king’s crown air fresheners – they are objects of human experience refracted and reconfigured to create a revised language of urban existence.”

The Art of Clean Up by Ursus Wehrli

For this author with slight OCD tendencies, this series by Ursus Wehrli, The Art of Clean Up, makes us feel a lot better. Seriously, who doesn’t want to organize their alphabet soup? Cars in a parking lot? Color coordinate that shit. ‘The Art of Clean Up’ is actually a book, but if it doesn’t work well on our shelf, there is going to be a Tumblr post on how we organized our lives better to suit the book.
