Levi Van Veluw

In his series Landscapes (the first 4 images), Levi van Veluw de-contextualizes various landscapes, digitally compositing them onto photographs of himself. In Material Transfers (the last 3 images), he does the same thing using random materials and without any digital manipulation. Interesting work.

    I think the third and fourth are neat; ‘tamed’ rural land vs. unfarmed rural land.

    This would have been fiddly, but I think the rocks/pebbles one would look cool if you had a faucet off-camera above your head, and the water in a few rivulets/streams through rocks, over skin, creating streambeds

    I think one that shows ‘manicuring landscape’ would be interesting, like how obsessively we control some properties

    Also might be interesting to have one that shows development – part of the head really untamed wilderness, and part of the head with houses stuck on

    The first one reminds me of the tree characters in The Hobbit

  • yea the Ents!

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
