  • Very very cool concept. I kind of want one.

  • Luke

    so sick!

  • Nice, I can see a philosophy under them.

  • Nambo

    OH YES! VERY NICE TO SEE THIS KIND OF THING MADE WITH MONEY!!

  • At first I thought they were going to be money sculptures, I love the forms created to get the right words, almost organised folding but I like how it’s not all straight, the way that the letters are at different angles and there are different sized folds is really interesting. I’d love to make drawings of these as the shapes themselves and then another set of drawings of just the type.

  • Damn, thats awesome!!

    ..you’ll be rich soon

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”.

Artist Spotlight: Fantasaraxia

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!
