Untitled. L'origami mouillé, la technique bluffante de l'artiste Hoang Tien Quyet. Passionné d’origami depuis son enfance, l’artiste vietnamien Hoang Tien Quyet bouscule les codes de l’art du pliage de papier en reprenant une technique élaborée par Akira Yoshizawa, un des maitres reconnus de cet art.

L'origami mouillé, la technique bluffante de l'artiste Hoang Tien Quyet

La technique consiste à mouiller légèrement le papier avant de le plier afin de le rendre plus malléable et facile à sculpter, particulièrement s’il est épais. En séchant, la feuille prend sa forme définitive. Identity through Art - MUSE. Fondation Louis Vuitton aims to protect and promote artistic creation on both a national and international scale.

My Ideal (2003-2008) Introducing Ai Weiwei’s ‘Tree’ Ai’s trees are made from parts of dead trees that are brought down from the mountains of southern China and sold in the markets of Jingdezhen, Jiangxi province.

Introducing Ai Weiwei’s ‘Tree’

Ai transports these to his studio in Beijing where they are made into trees. As he says, “it’s just like trying to imagine what the tree looked like”. Held together by hidden mortise and tenon joins and large industrial bolts, the trees look natural from a distance and artificial from close up. Tree has been likened to the modern Chinese nation, where ethnically diverse peoples have been brought together to form ‘One China’, a state-sponsored policy aimed at protecting and promoting China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. With eight individual trees placed together in the Annenberg Courtyard, this installation will be the largest single gathering of Tree to date.

Chatonsky. The Web was introduced during the last century as something immaterial, « in the clouds ».


But the network is made of a heavy material infrastructure, cables from one continent to another and data centers that concentrate Internet data. « Horizon » is an endless traveling in photographs found on the web representing the corridors of these data centers. These images show a classical albertinian perspective. Du light painting pour visualiser les ondes Wi-Fi. Street Ghosts project - Google Street View made Street Art and Public Concern.

onformative – Google Faces

The custom application works autonomously to process vast amounts of satellite images through Google Maps by using a face detection algorithm. This endless cycle produces interesting results for reflection on the natural world. Objective investigations and subjective imagination collide into one inseparable process in the human desire to detect patterns. The tendency to detect meaning in vague visual stimuli is a psychological phenomenon called pareidolia. One of the key aspects of »Google Faces« is the autonomy of the face searching agent and the impressive amount of data it can investigate.

The face tracker provides versatile and astonishing results as it endlessly travels the world. Magnetic Movie. The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries .

10 choses à savoir sur l'inévitable Takashi Murakami

Il aime la scatologie, le sperme et les peluches sous LSD Toiles monumentales saturées de couleurs et de fleurs au sourire béat, vidéos dans le plus pur style kawaï (mignon) mettant en scène des créatures débiles et/ou droguées qui utilisent les excréments comme engrais, sculptures de monstres bigarrés, d'humanoïdes difformes, de figurines à la sexualité agressive, l'oeuvre de Takashi Murakami dépeint un monde orgiaque, halluciné et sans tabou. Car sous le vernis rutilant des couleurs pop, les mondes de l'artiste nippon n'en finissent pas de se déglinguer.

Surenchère esthétique d'une imagerie manga déjà chargée, il faut vraiment avoir grandi dans les années 90 pour supporter cette débauche de couleurs flashy sans risquer la crise d'épilepsie. Takashi Murakami lui-même, dans un entretien accordé à Elle, avoue qu'il trouve les vanités d'Andy Warhol assez "laides" mais que "tout le monde a l'air de les apprécier". 2.
