Bicycles Built Based on People’s Attempts to Draw Them From Memory

Bicycles Built Based on People’s Attempts to Draw Them From Memory
I got an email and a book from photographer Eylül Aslan recently, and while her book is gorgeous, her email is honestly the best thing I’ve been sent since I started this site. I featured her work several years ago (see the post here) so it was quite a surprise to get an email like this, completely out of the blue: I felt so encouraged reading this, there are definitely days when I’m not as motivated to work on Booooooom so this kinda thing energizes me to keep it going. Anyways, I’ve posted a bunch of images from Eylül’s beautiful book “Trauerweide” (which can be ordered here) below.

Books and Stones Embedded with Sleek Layers of Laminate Glass by Ramon Todo Splitting his time between Kanagawa, Japan and Dusseldorf, Germany, artist Ramon Todo (previously) is known for his small sculptures of rocks and books embedded with polished layers of glass. Todo’s decision to seamlessly introduce disparate materials into a single object creates an unusual intention, as if these objects have always existed this way. The random pieces of obsidian, fossils, volcanic basalt, and old books are suddenly redefined, or as Beautiful/Decay’s Genista Jurgens puts it: “By inserting something alien into these pieces, Todo is effectively rewriting their history, and the place that these objects hold in the world.”

Designing the Perfect Anti-Object Behold the Camden Bench. This pale, amorphous lump of sculpted concrete is designed to resist almost everything in a city that it might come into contact with. Named for the London authority that commissioned it, the Camden Bench has a special coating which makes it impervious to graffiti and vandalism. The squat, featureless surface gives drug dealers nowhere to hide their secret caches. The angled sides repel skateboarders and flyposters, litter and rain.
