Burns

This is not your average street art, these drawings made by Daniel Gonzalezo are burned onto the wall. You can find some more of his work in this Flickr set.

Land Reform Carousel

June 12th, 2008

This is probably one of the weirdest art performances I have ever seen: Land Reform carousel.

Eight BMWs, the sponsor of the bb05, drive in a slow perfect circle on one of the lots of Skulpturenpark in Berlin. “This Land Is Your Land” plays on their radios. From outside, the song is heard as a melodic and muffled chorus. The circling cars create an image recalling a shiny auto display, a western wagon train, or an amusement carousel. Every few rounds the cars stop to pick-up and drop-off anyone who wants to go on its circular ride.

In Landreform, the banality of economic determinism drives in a circle around itself upon a ground which will soon be developed with luxury condos and office buildings. People are asked to join the ride. As sung by Guthrie, the land of Skulpturenpark is made for you and me.

The Way Things Go

April 10th, 2008

The Way Things Go‘ is a film by Peter Fischli & David Weiss, an artists duo from Switzerland. It’s a 30 minutes chain reaction video made in 1987, and definitely worth watching. I can also recommend the video work by Roman Signer.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

And as a little extra, this piece called ‘Masturbine’ by the same artists, part of their Équilibres.

Burn Burn Burn is a new project by Sarah van Gameren. No, it’s not a product, it’s a material, it’s a flammable paint. So you basically  paint some decorative patterns and you lit them afterwards. I can imagine that you can achieve a nice effect when you invite guests and the lit your interior … It would fit perfectly with the Smoke furniture by Maarten Baas.

Smoke

August 5th, 2007

I’m always fascinated to see how product are made. The ‘Smoke’ furniture collection by Maarten Baas is totally different than anything else. He takes existing pieces of furniture like armchairs and chandeliers made of wood, and burns them to a certain point. Afterwards the objects get a new upholstery or electric wiring, and a layer of clear epoxy. So in the end, every object becomes a piece unique. You can buy some of them through moooi, a Dutch furniture brand.
The chair below was made for an axhibition called “Where There’s Smoke” in New York. He took design classics a lit them, in this case the Gerrit T. Rietveld’s 1934 Zig Zag chair.
