  • subtly amazing.

  • I am a big fan of Jason’s work. Here is an interview I did with Jason a couple of years ago (http://wearduringorangealert.blogspot.com/2008/02/artist-of-week_20.html).

  • his paintings are pretty awesome. maybe this is a cynical interpretation but they remind me of someone on the verge of a complete emotional meltdown (esp. 1,3 & 5).

  • LOVE! the repition and pattern, and thoughtfulness of the colors. way to be complex while still keeping it intact and simple enough to have a bang!

  • the motion in these is excellent.

    Jason come back to New York. We miss you!! I love where you have taken yourself since the days when we were in school. For me, it’s wonderful to see what you were doing back in the day and see it transform into this beautiful work. CONGRATS you deserve it.

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
