Gary Card’s Abandoned Amusement Park

Coffee as Viagra, car crushing, Tokyo in high-def and more in our weekly look at the web

Renowned set designer Gary Card has created larger-than-life, fantastical works for everyone from Lady Gaga and the New York Times’ T Magazine, to the London concept store LN-CC. In his first solo exhibition, “Abandoned Amusement Park Attraction,” Card pushes the cuddly against the sinister at the Eternal Youth Gallery in East London, which is housing colorless, distorted cartoon forms he made from over 300 rolls of masking tape. If you can’t check out the show—which runs until 21 August—in person, this informal interview with Ten magazine will give you a peek into the imagination of the industrious 32-year-old designer.
