    fantastic. reminds me of reconstructed photos that were here (i think) a while ago. like smoke depicted through black garbage liners.

  • wow, I am very surprised, from the teaser I thought it was something with ice, I couldn’t tell what the scale was at first so it could have been anything from a ice cave or a mountain. instead its a bag, nice…

  • wt durrance

    creative. peaceful. great eye.

  • HEY! thanks for posting the pictures…
    I must say I was inspired by “American Beauty”, there is a scene in the film where a plastic bag is softly lifted and driven away by the wind. The bag obviously portrayed a character tossed to and fro by life, with no control over his life. I guess if you like my pictures, I hope you appreciate the film. Thanks for your comments… And keep up the blogç

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.

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!

Have a look at more images of Boldtron’s work below!
