While France is still lamenting its downgrade from AAA to AA+ visual artist Laurent Sciamma has long before taken the whole discussion a step further. On his tumblr Laurent cleverly comments on politics and culture in France and the world in a minimalistic visual style. As an independent art director he was also responsible for the film title design of his sister’s much acclaimed movie Tomboy that came out last year. For me as a German there is definitely one favorite picture: it’s Laurent’s comment on German reunification when western socks met eastern sandals more than 20 years ago. One to watch and follow. Thanks to Victor for the hint.
