Cardboard Headphones Make The Beat Drop Do they have noise cancellation? Nope. A bass boost mode? Airigami Vincent van Gogh used paint. Auguste Rodin worked in bronze. Larry Moss shapes air with the use of balloons. His medium may be somewhat unique in the art world, but Moss’s creations are inspired by the greatest artists of the past. His study of more traditional works can be seen most clearly in his series of parodies of well-known masterworks. Complexity Graphics by Tatiana Plakhova I’ve been waiting months for the opportunity to bring Tatiana Plakhova’s work onto Colossal but wanted to make sure it was something brand new that hadn’t been widely circulated online. Just today she published this incredible new series of digital artwork called NOOSPHERE that blends her signature algorithmic and gemotetric line work with landscape photography. If her work is new to you and you want to learn more, start here.
View on Canadian Art » Grow Op: Meditations on Landscape at the Gladstone Hotel, Part One I stopped by the Gladstone Hotel‘s latest design exhibition last night. Curated by landscape architect Victoria Taylor, it’s the inaugural year of Grow Op, a landscape-based exhibition of experimental works that seek to ‘uncover new ways of expression and meaning through projects that represent a wide range of approaches from the prosaic to the poetic, the elemental to the ephemeral.’ Grow Op curator, the landscape architect Victoria Taylor in front of a painting by Nick Sweetman.
The Paradox of GIF-iti: Street Art You Can See Only Online - Rebecca J. Rosen An artist's quest to make art tailored to the Internet, in the physical spaces of modern Los Angeles, London, and Newcastle That up there might look like some very cool but not particularly unusual street art. And that's pretty much what it is, if you were to see it on the London street where it lives. But that physical instantiation is only a remnant of an art project, not its final stage -- an art project meant not for a city's streets, but for the Internet's showrooms. Here is it in its completed form, a GIF:
Meet the Artist Behind Those Amazing, Hand-Knitted Playgrounds In a world of “dumbed-down,” down-right boring playgrounds, the colorful, architectural masterpieces of Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam stand apart. The Japanese artist knits her amazing projects by hand – her most famous project, for example, inside the “Woods of Net” Pavilion at the Hakone Open Air Museum in Japan, took her about a year to complete. We took a moment to speak with Ms. Horiuchi MacAdam about the Pavilion and her other works, how they bridge the worlds of art and architecture, and how they irresistibly invite the world to play. You can read our interview, and see more images of her fascinating work, after the break… AD: Some of your earlier works, such as “Fibre Columns / Romanesque Church,” are very architectural in nature – were you inspired early on by architecture?
Frosty Crop Circles Made With Snowshoes The time it takes to create great art is often unfathomable, but imagine if snow were the medium and each piece could take up to ten hours! That sounds excruciating! Snow artist Simon Beck does just that, creating intricate geometric patterns reminiscent of crop circles in the snow, often on top of lakes, in the middle of the night! Plastic Cups Become Fields of Snow It’s not the first thing you think of when you see a package of plastic cups, but Tara Donavan has been making beautiful sculptures with the mass produced items… and they look a lot like fields of snow. By taking transparent plastic cups and stacking them at varying heights, then placing them side-by-side, she makes a rolling field of white. It looks almost soft enough to make a snow angel.
