A few images from the ‘tutti frutti’ series by Sarah Illenberger. In 2011 after an influential visit to Tuscany, Sarah Illenberger started giving these unassuming fruit new identities. Prints of all are available through her site below. Sarah will be speaking at Offset 2014 in Dublin 21st to 23rd March.
This video has been doing the rounds for a while but since it’s pretty amazing I thought I’d put it up anyway. Magically with the use of a computerised chainsaw Kkaarrlls in collaboration with Echtwald manage to make 4 stools out of a single section of a tree trunk, leaving only a bit of saw dust as waste. The video is well worth a watch.
Turning Tokyo’s daily commute into Art. Michael Wolf is a German photographer based in Hong Kong, hiswork is influenced by life and architecture of mega cities. “Many of his projects document the architecture and the vernacular culture of metropolises.”You can see a previous post on his series Architecture of Density here. Michael Wolf’s exhibition ‘Paris Street View’ is running until December 15th at Kulturhaus Osterfeld in Pforzheim, Germany.
I was away in Munich for the last week drinking way too much beer at the Oktoberfest. I managed to see a few things outside the beer tents and the Brandhorst Museum by Sauerbruch Hutton was one of the things that amazed me. Unfortunately it was Monday when I visited so it was closed but the facade is probably the best part of it. It’s made of 36,000 ceramic rods in 23 colours arranged in families of eight colours. The second layer is made up of horizontally folded metal panels in two colours and installed at an angle. “This layering and its polychromy lends the skin a varied appearance: What is vivid and three-dimensional from close up will appear homogeneous and flat from afar.” Apologies for the bad photos, I still haven’t got around to getting a decent camera.
I saw this project by Chan Hwee Chong for Faber Castell on Behance yesterday. Watch the video below to see the making of his homage to Vermeer’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earing’ all done in a single wobbly line. You can see lots more of Chan Hwee Chong’s work on his Behance profile here.
Some impressive coding wizardry from conceptual Artist Kim Asendorf who works mainly in media and digital art. These images are from the series ‘Mountain Tour’. They use the algorithmic image manipulation process named ‘pixel sorting’ by Kim Asendorf in 2010. The result of this technique seems to be pretty random; leaving uncontrolled results. Prints of all these images are available to buy through his site here and you can find more of Kim Asendorf’s boundary redefining works on his maze of a site below.
