A selection of intricate sculptures by artist Kate Kato. Inspired by botanical illustrations and a love of nature, her pieces are constructed out of recycled materials and natural dyes. See out more images below or at Confluence Gallery (in Washington) October 15 – November 19.
Love these cactus plant sculptures made out of recycled plastic bottles by Czech artist Veronika Richterová. I’m totally gonna make some of these for my apartment! Lots more plants below!
These flip-books by artist Juan Fontanive are incredible, I’ve never seen an animation feel this alive before. Fontanive builds the mechanisms by recycling old parts from bicycles and clocks, and hand draws, paints, and screen prints images onto paper.
Watch the videos below, the sounds that the machines make are a beautiful compliment to the movement of the animations. These are maybe my favourite works I’ve ever posted.
