    Where can I get one of those bath tubs?

  • so this is what they mean when they say, “living in a bubble”. to me this self is in it’s comfort zone looking at the world. kind of like the internet, you’re in your pajamas and bed however exposed to endless scenes both at once. watching videos of the world.
    rad series

  • she’s quite interesting
    and the photographs are well composed

    like it (:

  • Thom

    didn’t the one contestant on work of art do this?

  • The idea is really interesting, this is like inserting privacy into public or less private places. Because these situations are not real, nobody pay attention to her and that creates a disturbance that make the viewer think about this notion of private/public space.

    I was gonna say, Young Sun from Work of Art did a self-portrait similar to the first one, except his body was naked and drenched with water, standing, instead of in a bathtub. The composition is pretty much the same too.

  • The cooperation of everyone in the photos is astounding :D

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!
