optical illusion

carlos cruz-diez - surface and surface 1 Beautiful lighting installation by Venezuelan Artist Carlos Cruz-Diez. Cruz-Diez work is about the viewers interaction without any need for cultural context. He works with silk-screen prints, video, architectural models, and traditional paintings. Olafur Eliasson has done similar chromatic works if you’re interested in seeing more of this kind of stuff.

Water Light GraffitiBrilliant interactive lighting installation; “Water Light Graffiti” by Antonin Fourneau made during his residency at Digitalarti Artlab. When the LEDs on the wall come in contact with water either by paintbrush,  atomizers, fingers or anything damp they light up to varying degrees depending on the moisture. “Water Light Graffiti is a wall for ephemeral messages in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically in the city.” The video below is by Digitalarti and music by Jankenpopp. You can see images of the wall being made on Facebook.

Elena Kalis_surface and surfaceStunning underwater photography from Russian born; Bahamas based Elena Kalis. It’s amazing how effective a certain camera angle can be; turning the surface of the water into something that seems solid and reflective.  Some prints are available to purchase here and you can see loads more of Elena Kalis’s photography on her site below.

Anne Lindberg - surface and surfaceRayon thread, Graphite and colored pencil line drawings and sculptures from Kansas City based Artist Anne Lindberg.  “My sculpture and drawings inhabit a non-verbal place resonant with such primal human conditions. Systemic and non-representational, these works are subtle, rhythmic, abstract, and immersive.”  Anne Lindberg will be having a solo exhibition at the Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago in September.

Helmo - surface and surfaceIncredible work from french design studio HELMO (Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez).   I love their technique of cleverly intertwining colour, form and type, coming at poster design in really innovative ways.

For “Bêtes de mode” (Fashion Animals) the blue and red animal / human portraits were displayed in the windows if Galleries Lafayette, Paris.  Transparent panels of Red and Blue were placed onto the panes of glass to alternate the visible images, a bit like those old-fashioned 3D glasses.

You can find loads more of HELMO’s work on their site below.

Optical illusionary sculptures from Argentinian Artist Leandro Erlich. Leandro is influenced by Jorge Luis Borges, Alfred Hitchcock, Roman Polanski, Luis Buñel and David Lynch, he uses cleverly placed mirrors to create a mind melting result.

“Erlich creates spaces with fluid and unstable boundaries. Before one tries to make sense of his sculptures and installations, one senses the uncanny. A single change (up is down, inside is out) can be enough to upset the seemingly normal situation, collapsing and exposing our reality as counterfeit. Through this transgression of limits, the artist undermines certain absolutes and the institutions that reinforce them.” Sean Kelly Gallery

Leandro Erlich is represented by The Sean Kelly Gallery, New York and Ruth Benzacar Galeria de Arte, Buenos Aires.  The Bâtiment (‘Building’) sculpture is currently on show at 104 Centquatre Paris until 4th March 2012.
