Playgrounds Titles 2014

by Valentin

Pour son cru 2014, le Playground Digital Arts Festival a fait appel au studio d’animation londonien Bif, pour réaliser la video d’ouverture de l’évènement. La video laisse paraître une ville futuriste dont la matière se déforme et s’étire à l’infini. Belle prouesse de réalisation digitale à découvrir en vidéo.

Artist Makes Ceramic Vessels By Detonating Explosives

by Kelly Richman

Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 8.10.19 PMIMG_0184rendl_06240

Though made of clay and designed as functioning vessels, the  ceramic vessels created by Prague-based artist and designer Adam Železný are anything but ordinary.  Using an innovative method of controlled detonation, Železný sends shockwaves into small refractory containers holding masses of clay to create unique works of art. Appropriately titled “The Blast,” this series of works offers an unconventional approach to a familiar art form— “a kind of punk analogy to an industrial porcelain production.” 

Based on complex tests and intricate measures, Železný’s system of charges results in one-of-a-kind bowls spanning various shapes and sizes.  While each bowl is undoubtedly a work of art in and of itself, to the artist, it is not the finished product that is key but, rather, the process itself.

In order to capture this fascinating method of production, Železný has documented the entire process in a video.  Depicting the artist’s “alternative methods of ceramic shaping,” the short video shows Železný himself as he sets off the explosions and subsequently creates the sculptures. While the video also briefly depicts the project’s initial set up and final, tangible results, its focus remains on the process—which is, ultimately, presented as a work of art.

Harry Roseman Makes Rigid Plywood Look As Though It’s Fabric

by Sara Barnes

harry-roseman2 harry-roseman9 harry-roseman1 harry-roseman8

Artist Harry Roseman takes the ubiquitous material known as plywood and with careful cuts and placement, creates the illusion that this rigid material is pliable. The large pieces include “folds” that make them look as though they are textiles. Roseman uses a single piece of wood and mismatches its grain to break up the visual monotony; it fools us into think that there’s a back and a front to this “fabric.” The rigidity is reminiscent of a plastic camping tarp, but it’s still impressive at how, with relatively few cuts, the pieces are believeable as something other than what they’re made of.

These sort of observations and overall sentiment is part of what Roseman is trying to achieve in his sculptures, writing:

The subjects of my work are the bend of a curve, the conjunction of edges, the turn of a fold, the weight and nature of objects, the conjunction of idea and object, the way an idea sits in an object and next to an object and the way surface can obscure and also reveal. One of my aims is to close the distance between thinking, looking and making, to the point where it is hard to tell the difference.

L’artiste Walead Beshty envoie ses fragiles créations de verre avec FedEx

by ufunk

Pour exprimer la notion de vie d’une oeuvre d’art, l’artiste anglais Walead Beshty, basé à Londres, a réalisé des boites de verre ou de cuivre très fragiles qu’il a envoyé directement aux galeries d’art en utilisant les emballages et les services du transporteur FedEx. Bien évidemment, les oeuvres sont arrivées brisées à destinations, avec des éclats, des rayures et des fissures témoignant de la manutention et du transport qu’elles ont subies… Une mauvaise publicité pour FedEx, mais un très bon concept !

Les objets décalés de Toni Spyra

by ufunk

Les créations de l’artiste allemand Toni Spyra, basé en Autriche, qui réalise des objets et des installations décalées, détournant avec humour les fonctionnalités initiales de ces objets… Une série amusante dans la lignée du travail de García de Marina ou de Giuseppe Colarusso. Je vous recommande aussi l’excellent « Quand une designer s’amuse à imaginer la pire expérience utilisateur possible« .
