Barcelona-based Reskate Arts & Crafts use luminescent paint to create murals that not only light up when the sun goes down, they display a completely different (though often complementary) image. Their piece for Action Against Hunger, for example, is a loaf of bread that transforms into a bread knife. Check out more of Reskate’s ingenious double murals below!
One aspect of the studio’s focus is accessibility and specifically creating work that involves learning in public space. For their first project as a studio, they’ll be responding to 26 briefs in 26 hours, and the entire thing will be livestreamed so anyone can follow along.
If you’re interested in watching a creative studio figure out their own process you should bookmark the staging site for their project A-Z (az.hawraf.com) which will become a live feed on November 15th.
When I was out in Tokyo last year for Pow! Wow! my friends and I went out to visit Japanese artist Haroshi at his studio (his photo of us) and he gifted me this bullet made out of skateboards. I chose from a whole bunch and he could immediately tell what decks he’d used to make it based on the colours. I believe this one was made out of old Enjo boards. Anyways he’s one of my favourite artists and Alexander Mitchell just released a nice video portrait of him working in his studio which you can watch on Booooooom TV.
OUTSIDE is an interactive installation of a projected frame floating in space. Everything that goes through the frame modulates the frequencies of an FM radio and controls the projected visuals.
The work was developed by Montreal-based studio, Iregular, as part of the Human Futures program of artistic exchange between Canada and Europe. The work explores how technology is making us more and more reclusive.

These images by Korean artist Jee Young Lee win the award for most elaborate self-portraits created without any digital manipulation. The artist spends several weeks at a time transforming her studio space into these incredible sets inspired by events from her life or Korean fables.
Jee Young Lee is the designer, performer, and photographer. She does everything! I do find it a bit sad though, that after all her hard work we can only experience these as flat images.
See lots more images of her work below!
