özant kamaci – pause m

leave a comment »

A simple idea, of nature colliding with man-made machines, and executed in a stark manner that helps drives the message home. Plus a shutter released at just the right time. by Özant Kamaci

raquel figueira – philia, mania, phobia

leave a comment »

In trying to explain the abstract and un-explainable (how do you explain an irrational phobia to someone who does not suffer from the same?), Raquel Figuera’s efforts results in scenes that are provocative, intuitive and extremely beautiful.

ai weiwei’s sunflower seeds

leave a comment »

By filling the turbine hall at the Tate Modern with 500,000 porcelain replicas of sunflower seeds, Ai WeiWei convinces the world the artistry and mass-market, mass-production power of the world’s second largest economy. Each seed is hand-made, hand-painted, and carpets the entire space of the huge hall. Visitors are then encouraged the walk all over the exhibit… a comment on the disposability of mass-replicated art? via designboom
