Here’re 3 pieces from Iris van Herpen‘s Capriole collection. I guess they’re more wearable sculptures than fashion.

Google Vase

October 10th, 2011

Daniel Michel searched for 8 different vases on Google Images. The rotation outlines of the 8 vases were arranged around a center and connected by minimal surfaces in a 3D construction software. Afterwards the textures were set on the surfaces and the vase was printed by a 3D-Printer in plaster.

The Specimen Series are a new series of nylon fabric objects-replicas of objects from Do Ho Suh his New York home. I guess Staircase is his most known installation.

Broken Houses

August 4th, 2011

The series Broken Houses by Ofra Lapid, is based on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather. The photographs are found on the internet and used to create small scale models. Afterward the models are photographed again, omitted from their background and placed in gray.

HEADQUARTERS ALTERNATE

August 3rd, 2011

A few months ago, Nicolas Sassoon made an architectural proposal for the online art collective Computers Club. I already liked it back then, but he produced and released an altered version, in just black and white, for ”STREET SHOW: The Things Between US”. Watch it in HD!
Soundtrack by Sara Ludy.

Michael Kukla

August 2nd, 2011

Michael Kukla made these amazing sculptures. He wants to create organic surfaces by drilling and grinding out cellular-like structures in marble or plywood slabs. Very impressive work.

Zip Tie Massimal

July 25th, 2011

Design Office Takebayashi Scroggin made this massimal with 20,000 zip ties. A massimal?

Massimals are 1:1 design objects that serve as prototypes to examine how physical form can engage the public realm. These constructs are mass abstractions of animal forms fabricated in systematic fashion from one material. The suggestive forms and their specific arrangement imply docile behavior similar to animals in a petting zoo augmenting the way visitors approach and engage built form.

Okay, but this is still a very impressive project.

Open Box I & II are optical illusions made by Krystina Naylor for a specific location. Would love to have one.
