Gravity defying photography from German Artist Michael H Rohde. Each image is made of several photographs meticulously cut and pasted together to create the illusion of being viewed through a glass floor.
Triangulated timber blankets from German designer Elisa Strozyk. I’m not sure how comfortable these would be but they look pretty cool. They are made by bonding thin lazer cut timber pieces to fabric, bending in different ways depending on the pattern. Elisa has used this triangulation principle on her designs for carpets, wallpaper, furniture and a collaboration with fashion designer Maria Bonita.
Dizzying large scale images from German Photographer Michael Wolf. These beautifully abstracted photographs are from Michael Wolf’s series ‘Architecture of Density’ a depiction of the mass housing blocks in Hong Kong (one of the most densely populated metropolitan areas in the world) where he was based for 10 years.
“In Architecture of Density, his vision has evolved to evaluate the high-rises that shape the spatial experience of Hong Kong’s citizens. Wolf finds in each building a singular character, despite its functional purpose and massive form.” San Francisco Chronicle
Some of Michael’s photographs were short listed for the third cycle of the ‘Prix Pictet’ entitled ‘Growth‘. I did a post about it back in January, you can find it here. The ‘Growth’ exhibition was on show at the Gallery of Photography, Dublin. These images are just a tiny example of Michael Wolf’s work, you can find see more of his great projects on his site below.
