Artist Susanna Bauer adds threaded embellishments to dried leaves, creating miniature sculptures that explore the hidden beauty and connectedness of all things. See more images from “Connections” below or on display at Le Salon Vert gallery in Switzerland until June 10.
Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
