  • i love these illustrations, they have a brilliants awkwardness!

  • I love the last one, he’s like a cross between a hipster lumberjack and a real lumberjack, or a real lumberjack that wants to be a hipster. Or a Wes Anderson character.

  • oh yea, love this… especially the one with the titanic sinking

  • They are all really Awesome, I like this 20’s Noir Crime Stories atmosphere in it, It reminded me of “the Black Dahlia”, “Agatha Christie” and the game “LA Noir”:D

    My most fav. are the First and the Fourth:)

    Is it weird that I find the first one…sexy? Actually, I’ve never really felt compelled to call drawings sexy but I think basically all of these are somehow!

  • M.N.

    The color combinations. The subject matter. The expressions. They’re all so brilliantly eerie.

  • Love the classic feel!

  • Name

    Like the woman’s expression in the sinking ship one. She’s all “Oh Christ, do we really have to get up? I was so comfortable.”

  • Sebastian

    Good stuff! i like the one that has the Betty Page type of look and the shades!

  • Steel romantic!!! Brilliant! artworks are great.

  • Acid Minnelli

    This illustrator should do an Ayn Rand Graphic novel.
    Dispassionate outlooks are why I live.

  • Joe

    Love the picture of the woman that is “part of the wall”, very unique!

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.
