Visible Structures

May 9th, 2011

Visible Structures is a series of 12 pieces of furniture designed by Nendo. They are made from foam core that is reinforced with industrial strength carbon tape. Those strips of tape are the visible structure but also a graphical element. I’m really tempted to try this out myself.

David Lyle makes oil-paintings inspired by snapshots from the 1950s, 60s and 70s mixed with references to pop culture. I like them.

Through The Barricades

April 4th, 2011

L017 is Angelo Bramanti and Giuseppe Siracusa and they prefer the use of waste materials and recycled objects to create their artworks. For their “Through The Barricades” piece they’ve used vinyl records. I quite like it but I’m not sure about the frame.

WASTED GERMAN BEER is WASTED GERMAN YOUTH‘s latest offspring. It’s a Bavarian controlled organic farming bioland eco beer. Can anyone give me a better name for a beer? Anyway, the WASTED GERMAN BEER launch is today, so if you’re in Berlin drop by at Memhardstrasse 1, 10178 Berlin between 2 and 7PM.

Of all the video projection on architecture projects out there, I still like Pablo Valbuena his best. One of his latest projects is called Quadratura, a site-specific installation presented at Matadero Madrid, Spain. Quadratura was the technique used in the baroque to extended architecture through trompe l’oeil and perspective constructions generated with paint or sculpture.

A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals

February 15th, 2011

Clement Valla asked 500 Amazon’s Mechanical Turk users to trace a line. The first user started with a straight line, the next user had to trace the previous user’s trace. I guess it’s no surprise that the last trace doesn’t remind you about the initial straight line. The result is “A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals”. The cool thing about this is the fact that Clement only payed $0.02 for every trace, so it has only cost him $10.
You can still participate in Clement’s current project “Copy Images using a simple drawing tool“, you’ll get $0,04 per drawing.
