Do the Green Thing has teamed up with World Wildlife Fund-UK to curate the ‘Everyday Things’ collection: fifteen artists from around the world were asked to repurpose daily objects and show how creativity can lead the way in encouraging people to live a greener lifestyle. When artist Mac Premo was asked to contribute to the collection, he partnered with Sanford Shapes to create skateboard decks made entirely out of material lifted from a dumpster. Mac then made this film which shows the process and inspiration behind the Bucket Board.

数年前、オリヴィエ・ポルジュがいずれ父の後を継いでシャネルの専属調香師になる可能性を仄めかしたが(記事参照)、その時はそうなったとしても10年先のことだろうと思っていた。先日7月5日にシャネルは、オリヴィエ・ポルジュを次期専属調香師として迎えることを発表した。話し合いから発表までに要した時間が3週間という驚くべき早さに、シャネルの機密保持への周到な配慮を伺うことができる。若干38歳にしてシャネルの看板を背負うに充分な力量と才能を持った調香師であることは疑いもないが、まだ5年ぐらいはIFFにいるだろうと思っていたから思わぬ早さの就任である。

シャネルがどのようなオリヴィエ・ポルジュの公式ポートレートを用意するのかが楽しみであるが、このオリヴィエ・ポルジュの写真は、フォトグラファーの渡邉肇氏(ホームページ)が7年前に撮影したものだ。写真が苦手なオリヴィエ・ポルジュが唯一気に入っているものであるらしい。以下は、この写真に関するオリヴィエ・ポルジュのコメントである。

I never like photographs of myself. They are often a bit too “cosmetic.” It feels like someone is trying to make me look like a movie star, and I am afraid I can’t live up to that. There’s nothing artificial about this one though, so that’s good. I look a bit serious, don’t I? I get tired of seeing people smiling all the time in photographs… If I had been able to choose, I would have stood further away from the camera, not right in front of it, with my hand in front so that I fade into the background…
