  • I sorta fail to see how these won the Turner prize. anyway, they’re interesting…

      Tbh, I fail to see why lots of stuff wins the turner prize (see; Martin “the moron” creed). While Abts clearly executes her work very well, I find it all incredibly bland. It looks like corporate art, decoration for the modern environment, and little more besides.

      This kind of soulless bland art really has come to prominence recently, just look at the Tate’s “Painting Now” exhibition (which Abts was included in) or the rise of “zombie formalism”. *Sigh*

    I admired her work when I was in art school, and I had forgotten about her until a few weeks ago; I remembered her work but not her name, and I couldn’t remember it for the life of me. THANKS FOR POSTING THIS!!!

Secret Studio Hidden Beneath Overpass by Designer Fernando Abellanas

Designer Fernando Abellanas has constructed a tiny studio beneath a busy overpass in Spain. Complete with movable walls, light furnishings and a hand crank that transports the structure along two metal rails, the micro-dwelling hangs high above the ground in a manner reminiscent to the kind of secret hideaway or fort one might have as a child. See more images by Jose Manuel Pedrajas below!
