Japanese Artist Yuichi Ikehata’s works are a clever combination of digital and physical. Photos of sculptures made of wire, clay, and paper are subtly merged with images of the artist’s own body painted white. The viewer is left to question what’s real. See more of Ikehata’s work below.
When I look at the incredible work of artist Toshihiko Mitsuya I can’t help but be reminded of that kid with no money who made action figures out of twist ties. Mitsuya’s sculptures are created out of aluminum foil, not twist ties, but there’s the same sense of child-like wonder in his work. Lots of images below.
Emerging from the belief that texture influences taste, design studio Nendo has come up with 9 different types of chocolate all made from the same “raw materials” and according to the same size (26 x 26 x 26 mm) but varying in things like roughness, smoothness, hollowness etc. Each is also named after a specific Japanese expression related to texture. Check out more images from this insanely meticulous project below!
