Grace Jones is immortalised in light at Chris Levine’s Vinyl Factory show
Grace Jones may be a face of the 80s, but a new exhibition in London shows her to be both timeless and totally contemporary. The Art Vinyl gallery, a former car park below the Phonica record shop in London, is host to ‘Stillness at the Speed of Light’, a dazzling array of lenticular images by photographer / artist Chris Levine.

Scouring Montana for the last roadside signs of America
The commercial landscape in the United States is dominated by national brand name stores and their insistence on consistency and predictability, writes Mike Kippenhan. This, coupled with cheaper and faster ways of producing signage, namely the use of printed acrylics and computer generated designs, is making roadside signage in the United States more and more visually homogeneous.

Comfort zone

Comfort zone

Do these pictures of abandoned sofas bring calm to urban chaos?
I started photographing abandoned sofas a few years ago, writes Christine Donnier-Valentin. The sofa is an object of comfort in a home, filled with memories of conversations, laughter, tears, play, books, food. And then it is discarded, taken outside and left next to the bins.

Eye revisits the typography of Athenian street signs
When Minos Zarifopoulos wrote about Athenian street signs in Eye 45, he worried that a project to remove modern billboards and other ‘visual disturbances’ could give the impression of ‘walking around an open-air museum of how Athens used to be’, writes John Ridpath.

Jonathan Miller explores the analysis and representation of movement
The current Estorick exhibition ‘On the Move: Visualising Action’ is not an art or photography exhibition, though it contains plenty of both. Nor is it strictly about science or technology or cultural history.
