Incredible Re-arranged Photographs by Vancouver-based Artist Ed Spence

Vancouver-based artist Ed Spence is making some of my favourite work right now. I dropped by his studio a couple weeks ago and I couldn’t leave without buying a piece. Let me explain to you what you’re looking at.

Ed takes a photograph of a crumpled piece of reflective paper. Then he prints the image and cuts out a section of it using a blade. He carefully cuts up the section into small “pixels” and re-arranges them based on colour. So if you were to run your hand along the finished photograph you would feel the texture of the cut pieces.

You kinda have to see these in person to really get the full effect. Really fantastic stuff! Lots more images below. The one I bought is the next one down.

This is Iceberg, the first white orca whale on earth. Scientists studying a pod of orcas saw his pure white dorsal fin breaking the surface and followed him, thinking that this was a trick of the eye. But Iceberg is the first reported albino killer whale, living in a large pod. Behavioural experts believed that orcas would exile a whale that did not look like the rest of the pod, but since Iceberg was born, his pod has accepted him and he is living a happy and healthy life.

Proving that whales are smarter than people.

Social Pool by Alfredo Barsuglia

by Anke Nunheim

In the middle of the California desert and a few hours away from LA you’ll find the minimalist art sculpture Social Pool by viennese artist Alfredo Barsuglia. It’s an 4qm wide pool in the Mojave desert, open for anybody to use, but neither signs nor paths lead you there. The white, geometric sculpture just allows for one or two people to stand or sit on either of its sides. Barsuglia stipulated that only one person or small party at a time can use the pool, and for no longer than 24 hours. MAK Center for Art and Architecture has the only key for the cover of the pool and the GPRS data. The visiting season is May 1st through September 30th, seven days a week. Reservations are recommended.

In a globalized world where anything is accessible anytime it was Barsuglias intention that the visitors who are on their long way to the pool, come to rest, find time to think about their life and social values ​​and reflecting their own reality.

This is why the Internet exists. Recently a video surfaced of a Japanese politician crying hysterically which really wasn’t that funny on its own. However, this gentleman in the bow-tie took it upon himself to memorize the entire thing, and turn it into a guitar solo. This is next level comedy. Watch the video below!

Nightmare Playgrounds: The Worst and Scariest Playgrounds of All Time, Part 1

by Design You Trust

1148 Nightmare Playgrounds: The Worst and Scariest Playgrounds of All Time, Part 1

These creepy masterpieces of sculpture and landscaping can be found in playgrounds not only in Russia (even though this is where the majority of photos come from) but also in China, East European Countries, and even in the US – anywhere the grass-roots creativity goes bad and the bad taste gets promoted, often unintentionally.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for dreaming up bizarre stuffs for kids, and some of the sculptures shown here might be considered as downright fascinating; but others are… well, ugly as hell.

And… not just kids, but some more impressionable adults can be psychologically scarred from letting these monsters into their dreams and thinking too much about them. In some cases, a visit to such a playground can even be considered as an insurable hazard – leading to some successful lawsuits (just kidding).

Blow. Theo Möller.

by admin

Blow es una lámpara inflable  diseñada por Theo Möller, concebida inicialmente como una especie de linterna dirigible. Blow consiste en láminas  de PE soldadas y una película con un revestimiento de aluminio. La lámpara LED se instala por separado del cuerpo inflable, y el papel de aluminio como un reflector, intensificando así la luz. La lámpara puede ser suspendido del techo por cables de nylon o unido a soportes de metal a través de los imanes.

Josh Kline’s Disgusting “Smoothies” Are Packed With Credit Cards And Underwear

by Sara Barnes

josh-kline1 josh-kline6 josh-kline3 josh-kline4

If you find yourself at the High Line in New York City, you can view an installation titled Skittles by artist Josh Kline. It features a large, industrial-sized refrigerator that contains a cultural food trend – smoothies. But, these aren’t the kind you’d want to drink. Instead being packed with fruits and veggies, Kline has ingredients like credit cards, sneakers, phone bills, and more encased in a bottle.One concoction reads: “williamsburg, credit card, american apparel, kale chips, kombucha, microbrew, quinoa, agave,” meaning that they are just sips away.

Each of Kline’s “smoothies” represents a different type of contemporary lifestyle. Components of the drinks spell out stereotypes that we’d associate with the person that lives it. The minimally-designed bottles are clear with the ingredients labeled on the outside. While the packaging all looks the same, it’s the contents that set each apart. Some are colored red while others look like they contain trash. Grouped together, they showcase the physical aspects of a persona who is a product of our culture.

Kline’s Skittles is part of the larger group exhibition Archeo, which is on display until March 2015. (via Laughing Squid. Photos via nyctaeus)

Kalen Hollomon’s Spontaneous Instagram New York City Collages Offer Surprising And Hilarious Juxtapositions

by Leslie Tane

hollomon-collage14

Using an iPhone and Instagram, Kalen Hollomon has taken collaging to a new level. Although Hollomon sometimes works in a traditional way, cutting apart images and reassembling them into hybrids, his New York City collages are often made on the fly as he inserts a cutout image into a photo as he takes it. The resulting images are a sly wink to the viewer as pants are replaced with porno magazines nudes and subway riders are given unexpected seatmates. The fact that Hollomon leaves his fingers in the shots is another play on altered reality. How does he compose these impromptu collages in real time?

“I will find an image in a magazine or a book that speaks to me and I’ll cut it out and have it with me. And I’ll usually have between one and five in a folder in my pocket. And when I’m out in the city I wait until I come across a situation that works with one. And I’ll get super excited and pull it out. It’s just waiting for the two worlds to come together.” (Source)

In the most meta of these collages, Hollomon stands holding his phone in an empty bathroom, reflected in the mirror over the sink, holding a picture of a naked, smiling man apparently leaning over the countertop. In the reflection you can see Hollomon holding the cutout and in the photo, you can see Hollomon’s fingers. It plays with the idea of real and unreal, lifting the curtain while obscuring the illusion.

“You can create a powerful image that at first looks nice and maybe is a bit funny but if you look a bit deeper, it also might have something more to say than that. … I am always concerned with what lies beneath the surface. I hope to create conversation that is rooted in questions related to learned social rules, identity, the subtext of everyday situations and perception.”

A Lifesize Dollhouse Built And Burned By Heather Benning

by Ariane Fairlie

Heather Benning - Installation Documentation

Heather Benning - Installation Documentation Heather Benning - Installation Documentation Heather Benning - Installation Documentation

Heather Benning refurbished an abandoned farmhouse built in the 60s and turned it into a life-sized Dollhouse in the style of the era. Her project began in 2005, as she remade the house to be used, re-shingling the roof with recycled shingles, restoring and furnishing the house, and stood open to the public until 2013. She removed the north side of the building, and replaced it with plexi-glass, to look like an authentic children’s toy. When the building was no longer structurally sound, Benning – who has already planned for such an event – burned it down. The resulting images of the 8 year long project are lovely, although I’m sure seeing the thing in life would be much more exciting!

Benning grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan, Canada. It has profoundly influenced her practice. Rather than installing in urban centers, as is the general practice of sculpture and installation artists – because, you know, there are more people to see your work – she installs in rural settings similar to where she grew up.

Benning speaks about her relationship to farmhouses:

I grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan. I was affected by my surroundings; when I was young, my parents would give me disused farm buildings for “play-houses.”

There was also an abandoned farmyard/house about a mile through the field on some land my father worked. In the summer months and on weekends, I would spend days exploring this yard and house, imagining what it was prior—who the people were, make up stories why they left. My sister and I would play “pioneer” based on the tales our grandmothers told us.
