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.” Todo will have a number of new pieces on view with MA2 Gallery at EXPO CHICAGO starting next week.

Little Paper Planes The work of Los Angeles bases, Lisa Williamson. She was part of Made in L.A. at the Hammer Museum last year. Working in several different mediums—sculpture, painting, drawing, video, and publications—Lisa Williamson (b. 1977 Champaign-Urbana, Illinois) creates works that are conceptually dense yet embrace a minimal and refined visual language as well as a lighthearted humor. Trafficking in the potential for abstract forms to conjure recognizable everyday objects, from architectural details to the human body, her works are placed in precise relationship to one another to suggest a setting where actions have occurred.

At a young age, I developed a sort of Darwinian added appendage, as my sketchbook rarely left my hands. People who didn’t take the time to get to know me simply called me “that girl that draws.” A few years out of college, I decided to join the US Army, where I met my husband, Matthew.
