  • BOOOOOOOM! Bringing the goods, yet again. James Benjamin Franklin sounds like the name of an assassin, and this artist is killing it.

    • hahah anyone with three names sounds like an assassin to me!

  • these are amazing! they make me think of wes anderson

  • p.s. i feel my name breaks the assassin rule 🙁

  • images 1 2 and 3 I find really quite dark and disturbing for some reason, maybe a little Guantanamo Bay.

  • i am usually not for illustrations, but i really like james’s work. i think it is his overall tone that i am drawn to.

  • Abt

    Some kind of hypnotizing art. Very amazing.

  • these are excellent.

  • !!FABULOSITY!!

  • they are so painfully poignant, beautiful!

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
