I came across two pieces by Andrew Lewicki that made me chuckle (and by chuckle I mean I didn’t make any audible noise whatsoever, but I pictured myself standing there in the gallery saying something like hey that’s pretty funny”). Gold-plated Skate Rail (shown below) and Walnut Skate Ramp (after the jump). Other works include buffing a legal wall at Venice Beach.
Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.
The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
