You’re not truly ‘all caught up’ if you haven’t seen BURO.’s top five Instagram posts of the week! Truth is, our editors’ daily mission is to connect with ease, to share with expression and to experience with conviction. So get inspired, feed your imagination, soul and scroll!
1. Stretch your imagination
Who said sculptures cannot be stretchable? Felix Semper is constantly seeking new ways to incorporate materials of everyday life such as paper, books, vinyl records, wood and found objects into his sculptures. His stretchable paper sculptures appearing to be stone or other materials are in fact entirely composed of layers of paper.
2. It’s not even our birthday
Truth is, it was Jean Paul Gaultier’s recently but we couldn’t help but feast our eyes, sugar-free with this cone bra corset cake as posted on the fashion house’s official Instagram page. Who would believe the original enfant terrible turned 70 on April 24th?
3. If liars were dresses!
Meet John Yuyi, a Taiwanese visual artist with a practice that explores aspects of social media, photography and the post-internet. She connects her fashion design education with graphic content creation and chooses not to categorize herself purely in either medium of fashion or photography.
4. A bloody big deal comedian
Follow Celeste Barber, known as the ‘Australian Queen of Comedy’. Celeste’s Instagram account has attracted over 8.1 million followers and has won the ‘Funniest Lady on Instagram’ award in 2017. Celeste has just released the second season of her luminary Media podcasts Celeste & Her Best with podcast collaborator Thomas Campbell.
5. Excel sheets are bad for your mental health
Everyone talks about how social media is bad for your mental health. But what about Excel? If you, just like us, hate them, you gotta love Pietro Terzini. Specialised in fashion, memes and everything in between, Terzini’s official page is @Friday.fries and it features his slogans written as graffiti on the packaging and logos of the most famous fashion brands.
