When she cans a long-planned holiday to Bali for the opportunity of a lifetime, creating a collection for a new client, it’s the last straw. Stressed out, she visits an an Asian massage parlour where she ends up spilling her troubles to the Thai masseuse. The Masseuse is convinced that Melanie should slow down and regain some perspective on her life and what really matters – and has her own magic to ensure it happens.
The following morning Melanie wakes up looking and feeling seventy… Artist creates beautiful indoor clouds. These stunning photos of indoor clouds might look like digital creations, but they're actually of real scenes created by Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde.
The clouds are generated using a smoke machine, but Smilde must carefully monitor a room's humidity and atmosphere in order to get the smoke to hang so elegantly, and with such life-like form. Backlighting is used to bring out shadows from within the cloud, to give it that look of a looming and ominous rain cloud. "I wanted to make the image of a typical Dutch raincloud inside a space," Smilde told Gizmag. "I'm interested in the ephemeral aspect of the work. It's there for a brief moment and then the cloud falls apart.
The effect is enhanced by Smilde's choice of setting. Smilde's "Nimbus II," produced this year (shown below), is also produced within an empty space. In both settings, the clouds seem to impart the existence of a fleeting, ethereal form into an otherwise desolate space. 3D origami animation diagrams- animated origami diagram to fold a paper flapping bird- the art of paper folding. DIY Picture Tiles - You Will Never Buy a Photo Frame Again. Lately I’ve been having this huge urge to decorate the house.
This is big news. I do not decorate. Arguably, one of the reasons why is because I. absolutely. hate. to. buy. mass. produced. decor. (Also, I can’t ever remember if pink and purple go together or not.) Anyway, this extends to photo frames. Nope. Long story short, I discovered this method of transferring my photos cheaply, quickly, and beautifully to something uncommon and unique. Tiles. The only thing that’s not particularly crunchy about this is that it uses Modge Podge or similar (and I’m not sure what’s in Modge Podge). It’s just grainy and doesn’t dry clearly. Boo. BUT, if you can overlook that one minor issue, I think you’ll love this. And it will be glorious.
Here’s how you do it. First, you need to go to Home Depot, Lowes, or something like it. (FYI, I found that Lowes prices on tiles were cheaper than Home Depot. I like the stone tiles, because they have texture. So you pick out your tiles in the sizes you want. Go go go! Deceleration of Time. For The Avant/Garde Diaries actress and artist Susanna Kraus introduces us to imago 1:1, the the world’s largest walk-in camera.
Her father developed this camera in the 1970s as a high-speed photography researcher at Daimler-Benz. The imago creates one-off, life-size self portraits, thus forcing the user to examine their own persona. The instant camera works with a selftimer and needs ten minutes to develop a full-size portrait. The box, containing the camera is somewhat of a mirror for your soul, giving the possibility to come face to face with yourself. The result is an ‘imprint of your soul’ as ‘thinker on duty’ Bazon Brock defines it.

Uccelli in procinto di spiccare il volo, scheletri che prendono vita… “The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping“. Chapeau. [Via] Comments comments. Alyssa Monks. Artist Alyssa Monks always painted women.
She started with the self-portraits and then took a detour to paint family members. Her bathing beauties evolve directly from photographs while she intentionally adds a lot of invention to them in her paintings. It seems like water is the overall theme to them and Alyssa says that the water thing kind of found her, and she evolved into it. She has a memory of painting when she was 14 or 15 years old and found an image of water, but it was too hard to paint. So, it was a personal milestone to paint water. All images © Alyssa Monks. Geometric Tattoos. A family’s picture per year, 1991-2009. Photographer Zed Nelson says of his project “The Family”… [In 1991], the wife of a friend was nine months pregnant, and I had an idea…to photograph them together, on the same day every year, forever….
Every year, at the same time, against the same backdrop, under the same lighting. This way there are no distractions, only the miracle of growth and the changes of time and age. I’m not sure whether the “forever” aspect of this project is happening, since the 2009 pic is the last one he’s posted, but regardless, it was a good run. Bursts Of Color Brighten An Already-Brilliant Sky. Every year in the early spring, Hindus deck out their homes in lush pigments to observe Holi—the festival of colors. The holiday’s significance in the Hindu tradition is vast and varied, but Holi has also carved a secular niche, as public celebrations take place in cities all over the globe. To honor tradition, or simply to have a good time, attendees throw fistfuls of vibrant pigments at one another and leave festivals looking something like this: Image via Edison Avenue. To capture their recent Paint Pigment Photograph Series, London-based designers Rob and Nick Carter tossed pigments around, too—but not at each other, or anyone in particular.
Instead, they captured the capsules of color in mid-air, creating what look like clouds just before a rainbow storm. RN865 paint pigment photograph, napthol vermillion (2012).

GHOSTCO. Drawing Board. Forgotten Legends In the Land Of The Hyper Surreal: Our Q&A With Alex McLeod. Alex McLeod is a Canadian 3D artist who uses digital tools to create hyper surreal landscapes, which will have an air of uncanny familiarity to anyone who’s ever virtually set foot inside a video game. Shiny digital surfaces coat the bulbous, soft geometry of a Super Mario World background, and castles lie barricaded on top of their foam kingdoms. These fantastical landscapes are tweaked into life using the modern animators artillery of Cinema 4D, Photoshop, and AfterEffects. But these busy virtual worlds, populated by crystal mountains and chromatic bubble-clouds, also retain a high-gloss kitsch, the same kind that coats the pop art of Takashi Murakami or Jeff Koons, giving them a glistening psychedelia.
Beginning this coming Saturday 26th May and running to 23rd June 2012 the Galerie Trois Points in Montreal, Quebec will host a solo show by McLeod called Légendes oubliées.

How-my-drawings-have-impoved-since-I-was-13-to-22.jpg (JPEG Image, 1024 × 2339 pixels) - Scaled (52%) Judith Ann Braun's Fingers Are Magical. With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips.
Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection. Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.
