Alberto Giacometti was born today in 1901. Existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre said Giacometti’s sculpture was “always halfway between nothingness and being.”

True story: my senior art thesis paper was about Giacometti and existentialist art in post World World I Europe. I remember next to nothing. His sculptures are still goddamn beautiful though.

"Starting with the idea that new, undiscovered music is like some rare animal, the design is built around a tropical plant visual, created by young painter Eleriin Ello. Somewhat unexpected pink color and distinctive typography complete the identity, which was applied to a wide range of materials."
