    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Alumni Team Wins Rome Prize

Apr 14, 2014
Kim Karlsrud (Product Design '07) and Daniel Phillips (Architecture/Landscape/Interiors '08)
Spotlight Category: Alumni

The American Academy in Rome announced today that the alumni team of Kim Karlsrud (Product Design '07) and Daniel Phillips (Architecture/Landscape/Interiors '08) are the recipients of the 2013-14 Rome Prize Competition in Landscape Architecture. Winners of this fellowship spend from six months to two years in Rome, completing their proposals. This prestigious prize is awarded to approximately thirty individuals who represent "the highest standard of excellence in the arts and humanities."

Karlsrud and Phillips started Common Studio after graduation, combining their interests in product design, landscape and urbanism. "We believe that the diverse challenges of today demand new ways of seeing, engaging and responding. Drawing upon our eclectic experience, we collaborate with organizations, agencies, and companies to realize their goals and maximize their social impact. We achieve this by leveraging the creative power of design through a human-centered, custom fit, and action based process."

One of their guerilla gardening projects is seedbombs. As they describe them, "Seedbombs, the weapons of choice, are small nuggets of clay, compost, and seeds that can be thrown into and grown in neglected corners of the urban landscape." Made in a sheltered workshop in Los Angeles, they are now distributed worldwide.

Of their training at Otis, they state: "It was at Otis that we learned how to combine our creative instincts with the ability to act upon them in strategic ways, and that's made the difference for us." 

Congratulations, Kim and Danny! We look forward to your blogs from Rome. Read full press release about their Rome project
