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. Screwy Portraits. Marcel Duchamp à propos du "ready-made" GUY LARAMEE. L’ange dans le marbre. A 15 ans, il détestait se salir les doigts et rêvait de dessins animés chez Walt Disney.

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.

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.
