Michel Blazy’s microbial art

Etienne at last month’s biennial. Michel Blazy created a most beautiful live installation of Givernyesque pools of living kombucha colonies. For those not yet in the know, kombucha is a fermented tea, that folks east of Caucasus can’t get enough of. Blazy’s reflective pools conjure microbial Monet As a point of reference, Claude Monet’s ‘Nympheas’ at the Museum Marmottan in Paris, image obviously used without permission Michel Blazy is a French artist whose sculptures and installations are process-based interactions between food materials and the direct environment.

Paper Sculptures by Vally Nomidou

Via the exhibition page: Paper, Nomidou’s dominant material, now becomes a key component in her creative process, inextricably linked to painful and systematic research on the technical level, as well as on that of aesthetic integration. The artist respects her material and, although it is cheap and vulnerable, she does not “adulterate” it by using other materials. Moreover, she does not use it as a shell, an encasing to cover a necessary inner structure by providing a fake, idealised skin. Nomidou builds and shapes her works from the inside out solely using paper and paperboard. To me her sculptures appear to be three dimensional collages, the paper-based media mixing and intertwining, occasionally embedded with flowers, jewelry and other materials.

Salt Sculptures: 12 Stunning Artworks by Motoi Yamamoto

To many people around the world, salt is just a substance that makes food taste better. But to the Japanese, it’s deeply symbolic, an indispensable part of death rituals that imparts purification of the body and soul. Artist Motoi Yamamoto draws upon the role of salt in his culture, using it as a art medium that he painstakingly packs into sculptures or squeezes into intricate drawings. The artist aims to confront viewers with the reality of death, in the form of stark white installations that mimic trailing vines, networks of neural nerves and endless paths of pure sand or snow. Floating Garden Yamamoto began working with salt as an art medium after his sister’s death from brain cancer at 24 years old. Labyrinth Series “Drawing a labyrinth with salt is like following a trace of my memory. The artist packed salt into a tall, narrow staircase for the work ‘Utsusemi’.

Fictional Landscapes

UK-based artist Kyle Kirkpatrick constructs these wonderfully tiny dioramas using the topographies of carved books. Via the artist: My practice is primarily concerned with the notion of the imagined landscape. I present man-made objects and natural materials simultaneously to form carefully and meticulously composed installation works. I capitalize on intrigue taking objects out of context reinventing their use, pushing the viewer to see beyond what I present before them, a glass could be interpreted as a lake or a metal bracket a cliff. I don’t know about you but given the right disposable book (blasphemy!) 100 Grotesquely Surreal Sculptures - From Morbid to Sardonic These Sculptures are Unsettling. There is something about the macabre, the strange and the sardonic that intrigues people; the grotesquely surreal sculptures featured here demonstrate this.

100 Grotesquely Surreal Sculptures - From Morbid to Sardonic These Sculptures are Unsettling

Perhaps such dark themes play to a person's sense of curiosity, beckoning them to explore the unknown. Perhaps this artwork offers a reprieve (even if unsettling) from humdrum everyday life by challenging common notions of aesthetics and propriety. In any case, it is hard to deny that these works effectively capture the themes, subjects and moods they seek to depict. From newborn babies ostentatiously tattooed with brand names to rotting corpses to purses with teeth, the sculptures featured here would be equally at home in a gallery or a horror film.

Indeed, subjects like death, nihilism and alienation are found in both contexts. Moritz Resl. Andrew Myers Art - Home. Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin. First: watch the video.

Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.

The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time.

The Book Surgeon (15 pieces)

Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here.

Depth and perspective appear "within arm’s reach", inviting the viewer into the canvas to experience it from a new perspective. The project posed a challenge to animators, who were required to meticulously interpret and recreate the 1878 original and find solutions to problems such as how to depict figures who were partially obscured by those next to them.

A Frugal Town in Lithuania Erects a Christmas Tree Made from 40,000 Recycled... - StumbleUpon. Okay municipalities of the world, pay attention. For a third consecutive year the city of Kaunas, Lithuania approached artist Jolanta Šmidtienė to assist with their annual holiday decorating. Recognizing the city’s somewhat dire financial state the artist challenged herself to build something that wouldn’t rely on any administrative funds set aside for the event.

The result: an enormous 13-meter tall Christmas tree made from nearly 40,000 recycled green bottles and zip ties. At night the tree is lit from the inside resulting in a glowing, translucent, emerald green spruce that’s making headlines across the country. I would love it if Chicago had the ambition to do something like this. Most Amazing Sand Sculptures.

Recycle pizza boxes into wall art. Art for pizza lovers! BTW our pizza is delivered with a wax paper insert on the bottom of the box, so the boxes were clean. I wouldn't recommend using pizza boxes with food stains! I already had this idea in mind, but was going to use polystyrene blocks. But why buy polystyrene when I can recycle pizza boxes and create art for my home, and for the kids' rooms as well. ABOVE: Use larger pizza boxes to make unique art for a child's bedroom. ABOVE: The humble pizza box becomes eye-catching art for a home. You will need: Pizza boxes - small, medium or large Wallpaper, wrapping paper or fabric Bostik spray adhesive Ruler Craft or utility knife Scissors Double-sided tape to mount onto wall Here's how: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Ornamented Columns by Michael Hansmeyer. Share on Facebook photo © Michael Hansmeyer The Ornamented Columns of Michael Hansmeyer make the unimaginable to come true through the use of new technologies and subdivision processes. He creates columns whose forms make you think that they come from a different world. Michael Hansmeyer talks to Yatzer about his computational project. “It is an attempt to incorporate tools and technologies that can expand the scope of what is possible and what is imaginable and in the best case to create something that is not yet imaginable,” says Michael Hansmeyer the Zurich based architect and computer scientist about this project Ornamented Columns.

His columns look like alien forms, part of a different world, thanks to the subdivision process used to produce them. The project “grew out of a previous project, the ‘Platonic Solids’, that also used subdivision processes to generate complex forms,” he explains. Sources: Michael Hansmeyer.
