I usually try to feature lesser known artists but I love Tom Sachs’ work too much not to post. These sculptures just become more and more relevant as time goes on.

    Glamorous satires. Wonder if the pieces were intended to be parodies of the companies’ styles themselves–

    Tiffany & Co. is just a “pretty little box” filled with pretty little pieces of metal.
    The Chanel pieces lend to a metallic, mechanic form of feminine brutality, relating to Chanel’s timeless yet innovative (chains and bows, etc) tendencies.
    Prada toilet…maybe this guy just doesn’t dig Prada.
    I really liked the Hermès one. It’s the most upfront commentary on consumerism related to designer brands.

    a toilet, a chainsaw, and fast food, man this guy deserves a frickin medal, somebody get this guy a bar of gold, maybe he can use it as a reference to sculpt a cardboard replica

  • Goldie Moore

    This Guillotine picture is the one they are using as a propaganda photo, saying the US Government purchased 30,000 of them to kill Americans!

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
