  • Craig

    Thanks Jeff! Would love to see what illegalities Canada has to offer!

    • Zeleny

      what does canada have to do with it?

  • traitors gonna trait

  • @twitter-25657753:disqus is what it is. this is great tho.

  • Neat project. Thanks for sharing, Jeff. Though having experienced the 2010 games, one has got to wonder if the IOC will crack down on these businesses and/or the project/book….

    • Alessandro

      then, a class action would be required… do they think Olympic games are a private property? Can’t believe how far we’ve gone with this finance/market silly stuff

  • like it! more illegals please!

  • Shanelee

    Rather ironic.

  • What a douchy thing to do.

  • dianne tanner

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!
