Screwy Portraits Andrew Myers uses common screws - up to 10,000 of them at a time, to creates these wonderful three-dimensional portraits. 2,000 Suspended Dandelions by Regine Ramseier Back in September I posted a photograph of an unknown art installation that seemed to show numerous dandelions hanging upside down in a small white room. At the time I was unable to investigate any further and it seemed destined to remain a mystery. That is until shinyslingback did the requisite leg work and discovered the piece was by German artist Regine Ramseier as part of ArToll Summer Lab 2011. I didn’t stop to think of what it might take to successfully transport 2,000 un-puffed dandelion plants into a building and then suspend them one by one, but this walkthrough of the entire process is really sublime.

Imágenes que engañan a la vista Hay que reconocer cuando alguien tiene un talento especial, y este escoses tiene uno extraordinario. Con ayuda de un lápiz es capaz de elaborar retratos a partir de una fotografía en blanco y negro. El artista Paul Cadden logra reproducir a mano cada detalle de las fotografías, las arrugas de los rostros, el humo de un cigarro, las gotas de agua, este artista le imprime una enorme dosis de realismo después de tres a seis semanas que le toma terminar una obra, que llega a vender en 5 mil libras. Es difícil pensar que los dibujos no son trazados con sus propias manos, pues en 2011 fue nominado como Artista del Año, y pensamos que seguramente un título así no se obtiene falsificando piezas. De hecho estará exhibiendo sus trabajos en la Galería Plusone en Londres, por sí quieren comprobarlo con sus propios ojitos. Aquí una muestra para que lo chequen: Tags: arte, Fotografía

Neural.it :: new media art A Helium-filled Kinetic Drawing Sculpture by Karina Smigla-Bobinski ADA – Analog Interactive Installation, is a kinetic sculpture by German-based artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski. The installation is made form an enormous helium-inflated sphere trapped inside a small room that’s spiked with dozens of protruding charcoal pieces which scrape the edges of the gallery wall as participants push, toss, and otherwise manipulate it. Most recently it was on display at the Electronic Language International Festival in São Paulo this Summer that took place in São Paulo. It’s fascinating to me that given the constraints of the sphere and room, a single outcome (pictured at bottom) is destined to emerge, but yet requires the participation of dozens if not hundreds of gallery visitors. Reminds me of the work of Roman Ondák.

This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12. If you liked this you’ll also enjoy Roman Ondak’s Room of Heights and Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s helium-filled kinetic drawing sculpture.

Daniel Graffenberger Daniel Graffenberger is a concept artist and illustrator currently located in Berlin, Germany. His online portfolio includes concepts and illustrations of futuristic military airships, tanks, armor mechs and weapons. Link: talros.deviantart.com Book Sculptures by Bronia Sawyer The abundance of book sculpture I’ve seen online lately is staggering, however it was refreshing to discover the work of UK-based Bronia Sawyer who colors, folds, and rolls the pages of books to create these bird and flower-like plumes of color. Via her site: I love to take something like a book and turning it in to something visually pleasing. With book sculpture I like the fact that books are flat and square they have order but by cutting them and folding them you can create organice and random shapes. See lots more work via her Flickr and website. (via illusion and all things paper)
