A couple years ago I wrote about Taylor Holland’s Fra[mes] project in which he digitally manipulated ornate frames from the Louvre. He since partnered with Sainthill Lijsten, who do restoration work and framing for large institutions like the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to create real versions of the absurd frames.
Here are six antique frames filled with repeated elements from the frames themselves, using custom molds built from the digital images. See the rest below.
I was walking down West 4th last week and ran into my bud Luke Ramsey, painting a little mural out front of what will soon be the Patagonia Vancouver shop. I love everything he makes! This one was inspired by the movement of a circulatory system, and if you’re in Vanvouver it’s at 4th and Maple. More images below.
This was posted last year on Reddit but I only just saw it today (thanks to my friend Andrew Turner). This guy’s family didn’t have a lot of money when he was growing up so he took it upon himself to make his own action figures out of twist ties. I love this kind of thing! I used to spend hours making complex tunnels and forts out of old refrigerator boxes and when I see things like this I get a little worried about kids growing up in this iPad generation.
Lots more images below.
