Step Inside London’s Felt Cornershop

To view more photos and videos from Lucy’s Cornershop, explore the The Cornershop location page, browse the #thecornershop hashtag and follow @sewyoursoul on Instagram.

Look closely at a corner shop in East London and you’ll see everything is not as it seems. The Cornershop, opened in a derelict store in Bethnal Green by artist Lucy Sparrow (@sewyoursoul), is actually an art installation which consists of 4,000 items all handmade from felt! From Heinz Baked Beans to Digestive Biscuits, everything in the shop is hand-stitched and the whole shop took Lucy eight months to assemble.

“I wanted to create something that surrounded people completely,” says Lucy, whose first job was in her local corner shop. “I hope this project reminds people just how much the cornershop cements life in local communities.” The installation runs until August 31.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPtimelapse

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The goal this weekend is to capture creative time lapse videos. Some tips to get you started:

  • Unlike slow motion videos that are meant to highlight a single moment, time lapse works best when showing a scene over a period of time. Experiment with how time lapse can reveal the rhythms of nature or the patterns in the way groups of people move.
  • Time lapse is also a great way to show process. Whether preparing a meal from start to finish or documenting a work of art as it takes shape, think about the otherwise long actions that you can speed up and show in their entirety.
  • For those on iOS, try using Hyperlapse from Instagram to film your shot. If you’re on Android, check out apps like Lapse It, Time Lapse and Frame Lapse.

For more on how to capture the perfect time lapse video, check out these tips from New York Instagrammer Kevin Lu (@sweatengine).

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPtimelapse hashtag to videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own videos to the project. Any tagged videos taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.

Radical Self-Expression at the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock City

To view more photos and videos from Black Rock City, explore the Burning Man location page, browse the #BM2014 hashtag and follow @missjessrose on Instagram.

“It’s way more than you can imagine,” says Jessica Rose Yurasek (@missjessrose), describing Black Rock City, the site of the annual Burning Man festival. Each year, a global tribe of artists, makers, and performers converge in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, birthing a pop-up city of more than 60,000 “Burners” and their acts of radical self-expression.

In contrast to an inhospitable physical terrain, which ranges from scorching heat to torrential rain, Jessica sees Black Rock City as an inspirational place of generosity and creativity. The weeklong gathering culminates with the burning of a towering wooden effigy known at “the Man”, and then disperses, taking care to leave no trace in the desert.

“If we as humanity can build this,” she says, “then I have hope for our future.”

Classic Objects Reimagined by Fredericks & Mae

For more photos and videos from the playful work and life of Fredericks & Mae, follow @fredericksandmae on Instagram.

Windsocks, darts, tassels, dominos and kites—these are some of the classic objects that the design duo Fredericks & Mae (@fredericksandmae) reimagine and make in their Brooklyn studio. “We are interested in forms that have existed for a long time that may have only recently fallen into the realm of not functional,” Jolie Mae Signorile, one designer, says. Her partner, Gabriel Fredericks Cohen adds, “Tools, games and rituals trace arcs though history and across the earth—we follow these arcs.”

On Instagram, the two typically share shots of their designs, mixed in with scenes from the beach and the boat they share with friends. “Instagram is a place where we get to share our materials, a bit of our process, and have a little fun,” Jolie says.
