Science of the Secondary: Cup is a lovely book by Singapore based Atelier HOKO, whose intention is to be “an independent research platform focusing on investigations towards material and immaterial conditions that make up our experience of the everyday.”

The second issue focuses on the cup and our experiences surrounding the mundane act of drinking. Featuring 52 pages of beautiful colour photography and cute illustrations, the publication adopts an inquisitive angle in examining the familiar act of drinking: looking at everything from the cup to our drinking posture. Science of the Secondary invites us to rediscover the little joys present in our day-to-day lives.

Mambu Bayoh

I came across Bayoh’s work in late 2010, drawn to the vibrant softness and hidden strength of the women captured by his camera. Bayoh is a Sierra Leone/Liberian photographer who came to the United States at a young age, escaping the Liberian civil war. Drawn to the art of photography, Bayoh stopped his pursuit in Law and dedicated his time to his now current passion. His work not only crosses over into high fashion and street fashion, but into social documentation as well.

These images by Amsterdam-based artist Sit Haiiro have me in a trance. Stunning work. Couldn’t find much personal information on him besides:

After working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Sit decided to stop this madness in 2008 and went back to head and handcraft to slice away the fat. The following works were collected from his on going project called Haiiro. For further understanding of these illustrations, check out his description:

“Where the calm surroundings provide more opportunity for decision making, rather than being driven by the fast moving winds of change.”
