Tape, Pencil and Resin: The Art of Brooks Salzwedel I’m very intrigued by Californian artist Brooks Salzwedel’s unique style and approach to these delicate works, that combine nature and rigid human-made structures. It’s nice to see work that brings in different non-digital materials to what we’re used to.

I also love the gloomy and almost real effect that’s created by having elements between semi-transparent layers. They are also reminiscent of some of the pictures of flattened leaves you’d get in school science books.

An Amazing Collapsible Lamp You remember Hoberman spheres, right? Those collapsing, 3-D gizmos? Pish posh--they've got nothing on this new lamp by Studio Dror, being unveiled this week at Art Basel. The shade itself folds completely flat--it actually looks just like a bit of chicken wire or plastic fencing. But give it a tug, and the thing unfurls into a forest of interlocking cubes.
