Bittersweet Melodies

photographer photography irina werning back to the future re-creations of old photographs
Remember these photos? Feist’s new video for “Bittersweet Melodies” features the wonderful work of Irina Werning. While it is essentially a slideshow of Irina’s “Back to the Future” project I like that they did this rather than attempt to copy Irina’s work.

Watch the music video below!

Photos from Irina Werning’s “Back To The Future” Project.

    Irina’s work is so inspiring and touching, I kind of hated the song though, but glad they didn’t outright copy her idea

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.

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!
