  • These photographs are quite beautiful and hypnotic at first. Then they are intense and troubling when I think about the mangled cars they are referencing. Quite a dynamic experience in each photograph. Thanks for sharing.

  • Ruth

    Genius!

  • These are simply beautiful. At first, I thought they were paintings.

  • Alongside Per Bak Jensen, Nicolai Howart is my favourite danish photographer. Both “Dying Birds” and “How to Hunt” has been on display near where I live this spring, and I am constantly amazed by his works. His website is definitely worth checking out – http://www.nicolaihowalt.com/

  • These photos are quite beautiful and intriguing. I almost wish I didn’t know before hand that these were called “car crash studies” and then learned afterwards. It takes away some of the abstractness of the photos when you already have a solid concrete physical thing you can link them too.

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“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.
