Found on: Submitted by Joshua Riehl Everything but the Paper Cut: Eye-popping Ways Artists Use Paper In the year since the Museum of Art and Design reopened in its new digs on Columbus Circle, they've been delivering consistently compelling shows--from punk-rock lace to radical knitting experiments. The newest, "Slash: Paper Under the Knife", opened last weekend and runs through April 4, 2010. The focus is paper--and the way contemporary artists have used paper itself as a medium, whether by cutting, tearing, burning, or shredding. In all, the show features 50 artists and a dozen installations made just for the show, including Andreas Kocks's Paperwork #701G (in the Beginning), seen above. Here's a sampling of the other works on display: Mia Pearlman's Eddy: Ferry Staverman, A Space Odesey: A detail of a sprawling work by Andrew Scott Ross, Rocks and Rocks and Caves and Dreams: Lane Twitchell's Peaceable Kingdom (Evening Land): Béatrice Coron, WaterCity: Between the Lines, by Ariana Boussard-Reifel: A book with every single word cut out:

Instagram Quote Rebuttals") are a series of image macros typically designed to ridicule “profound monologue” photos. It consists of a picture, usually taken with Instagram feature and hence the term “Hipster Edit”, an ostensibly meaningful quote and a buzzkilling remark denoted underneath in red text. Origin Artistic photographs with profound quotes have been circulating online prior to emergence of this series, most notably through online art communities and blog platforms like LiveJournal and DeviantArt. Self-uploaded vanity shots of emo, hardcore and hipster youths have been a staple subject of internet humor since the late 2000s, further boosted by the launch of Tumblr blog “Look At This Fucking Hipster” and Demotivational Posters.

One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Via his website Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world: I have used different brands of toothpicks depending on what I am building. See the sculpture for yourself at the Tinkering Studio through the end of June.

Bücherkubus - Bild von Edgar2 aus Architektur - Fotografie (18872702 Symmetrie war noch nie ein Indiz für ein gelungenes Bild. Symmetrie bedeutet Redundanz und Redundanz erzeugt Langeweile. Geringe Detailtiefe kann man nicht durch Schärfen ausgleichen, sondern, in der Digitalfotografie durch größere Sensoren, in der Analogfotografie durch eine größere Filmfläche und natürlich durch bessere Objektive. Hätte man mehr draus machen können! Gruß Michael Charly Charné, 16.10.2009 um 12:37 Uhr Symmetrie bedeutet Redundanz ? Darüber sollten wir nachdenken :-) Wenn wir schon in Metaphern sprechen wäre Redundanz wohl eher Sicherheit als Langeweile. Vielleicht versteh ichs aber auch nicht :-) Ruth P, 16.10.2009 um 12:47 Uhr Endlich mal wieder ein aussergewöhnlich gutes Bild in dieser Galerie! Matthias von Schramm, 16.10.2009 um 13:09 Uhr Im Sinne von technischer zur Sicherheit dienender Redundanz muss man aber doch Michael Guntenhöfer recht geben. Corinna Leonbacher, 16.10.2009 um 15:56 Uhr Wow, tolles Bild! Max H., 16.10.2009 um 16:25 Uhr Detomaso, 16.10.2009 um 16:34 Uhr L.
