“North Facing on December 21st”, waterjet cut concrete sculptures by Toronto-based Canadian artist Jennifer Rose Sciarrino. More images below.
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.
Studio Markunpoika (Tuomas Markun Poika) is producing vases made out of hundreds of pencils in a series called “Amalgamated”. The writing utensils are treated as raw materials, glued together, and shaped with a lathe. There is something so satisfying about watching the video 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.
