Oooh

Oooh… is the title of this wonderful series by Sydney based artist Todd Robinson. Normally ballons are up high and playful but these got kind of tired at the birthday party and retired or fell asleep! Todd Robinson’s practice traverses fields of sculpture, installation, textiles and fashion. Via The Jealous Curator.

Scientific Scupltures

The shortest distance between two points is a line. Or is it a curve? American father-son artist duo Martin and Erik Demaine combines applied mathematics and origami that results in beautiful complex forms that appear to be undulating in motion while remaining completely static. When folded along curved creases, paper shapes itself into a natural equilibrium form. These equilibria are poorly understood, especially for curved creases. The duo explores what shapes are possible in this genre of self-folding origami, with applications to deployable structures, manufacturing, and self-assembly. This transformation of flat paper into swirling surfaces creates sculpture that feels alive. The stunning forms that emerge from the mathematical relationships in their work underlies the realization that mathematics is an art form. Via Trend Tablet.

Intrusions, Protrusions and Disown

Using traditional ceramic firing processes, American artist Emily Sudd transforms collectible kitsch ceramic objects and functional ware into fine art sculptures - here from the series Intrusions, Protrusions and Disown. After collecting and arranging the various items, she subjects all of the objects to the same firing conditions, resulting in unpredictable and surprising results. In the firing, some objects retain their form, while others melt down into fluid clay and glaze. My favorite is the first one with the melted coffee pot in the tray – but hey, the lion with some indefinable thing melted over its head is pretty great too. Not to mention what's going on at some of the shelves – fantastic work! Via Lustik.

Perfume Pieces

When Dutch designer Jody Kocken found out that she was allergic to perfume, she designed her own way out of it with Perfume Tools. Her series of Industrial jewelry pieces are able to attach to the openings of perfumes bottles and the tools then work as a means of holding the scent and diffusing them, while acting as a barrier between the sensitive skin and the actual perfume. It's so clever and so beautiful! No wonder she won a Wallpaper Design Award 2014 – congrats!! Via Bloesem.

KowwBoy

After working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Amsterdam based artist and designer SIT decided to stop the madness in 2008 and went back to head and handcraft to slice away the fat. Well I'm glad he did because I really enjoy these edgy and poetic illustrations from the series Kowwboy - made with spray paint on sandblasted glass. It's like you can actually see through the animals eyes and get the personality of the boy especially the lion and the dog – it's comforting and scary and at the same time. Via Lustik.

Cool Composition

This cool installation Composition at Music City Center in Nashville by American artist Aaron T Stephans takes inspiration from small model kits in which pieces are snapped off a central grid. But instead of small parts, Aaron T Stephan’s unique work consists of over a hundred life-sized musical instruments. The stark white instruments made by painted aluminum and plastic are organized in a similar grid-like form and create a rhythmic dynamic with the surrounding architecture. Love the contrast between the industrial look and the vivid musical instruments. Via Lustik.

Watercolour Wonders

Watercolour and fashion is a match made in heaven! Especially when it comes to these fabulous icecream-coloured fashion illustrations by New York based Swedish illustrator Mats Gustafson. When he began his career as an illustrator in the late 1970s, editorial illustration was eclipsed by photography, and watercolor as a conceptual medium had barely been explored. So thank God that he had the guts to throw himself in the watercolour arena and win the battle over this extremely delicate but impossible technique. Via The Jealous Curator.
