ART+COM : KINETIC RAIN

Berlin firm ART+COM just completed this stunning new kinetic sculpture in Terminal 1 of Changi Airport in Singapore. Kinetic Rain consists of two sets of 608 suspended raindrops made from lightweight aluminum covered in copper which are raised and lowered in a 15-minute computationally designed choreography controlled from motors embedded in the ceiling. ART+COM created a similar though somewhat smaller piece for the BMW Museum in 2008.

WRITTEN : ANNIE VOUGHT

Beautiful hand cut paper letters by Californian artist Annie Vought.

Handwritten records are fragments of individual histories. In the penmanship, word choice, and spelling the author is often revealed in spite of him/herself. A letter is physical confirmation of who we were at the moment it was written, or all we have left of a person or a time.

FROM BRAZIL, WITH LOVE : LOVE

love. I’ve been scrolling page after page for half and hour and I now have a collection of 50 images in my folder…almost impossible to choose my favourite ones to post. So, you’ll just have to check out these amazing collages from…from Brazil, with love.. for yourself.

ABOUT
APPROPRIATE TO RECRIATE. DAILY ARTWORKS FROM THE BEST MAGAZINES AROUND THE GLOBE. STYLING THE ALREADY STYLED. DIY. WITHOUT POWER, CORRUPTION AND LIES. SINCE 2008.

In the visual arts, to appropriate means to adopt, borrow, recycle or sample aspects (or the entire form) of man-made visual culture. The term appropriation refers to the use of borrowed elements in the creation of a new work (as in ‘the artist uses appropriation’) or refers to the new work itself (as in ‘this is a piece of appropriation art’). The artist who uses appropriation may borrow image, sound, objects, forms or styles from art history or [(popular culture)] or other aspects of man made visual culture. Inherent in the process of appropriation is the fact that the new work recontextualizes whatever it borrows to create the new work. In most cases the original ‘thing’ remains accessible as the original, without change. And here’s it’s from Brazil, with love.

ALL COLLAGES/ARTWORKS COPYRIGHT FROM BRAZIL, WITH LOVE DESIGNED by ROMEU SILVEIRA.

LOVEBULLETS : AMO AMMO

Brrrrrrrruuuuuuuuup…….I am in love with LOVEBULLETS!

Their show was most definitely my highlight of London fashion week, launching their new range of jewellery and with founder/creative director Martin Jegede also exhibiting his sculptural military inspired art. I was going to write a long spiel about how they were created and what they (LOVEBULLETS) do….. but I think that the images below say enough. so in short, LOVEBULLETS : blinged up military weaponry, Gems, artillery and jewels all mixed in with a splash of London urban cool… A label to watch, an artist to admire and all the while sending a message of peace and love.  x

MICHELLE GIUFFREDA : ARRIVAL

I should have done this ages ago, the below works are by my dearest friend and artist Michelle Giuffreda. Michelle is based in Adelaide Australia and had her debut/opening exhibition last week. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it but sent the parents along to show support. I absolutely love Michelle’s work, and if you ever get the pleasure of meeting her, you will see that the energy, passion and vibrancy of her works is simply an extension of her own extraordinary personality.

please ‘like’ her fb page here or you can head to her website

COLOUR IN ART

I recently went to an exhibition with a good friend of mine, and discovered that he had an attraction to colour. Every piece he loved was full of contrasts, bold and vibrant colours. He was drawn to the works….. and I think I may be exactly the same! See below a few of my favorite artists whos works excite me with their bursts of neon, splashes of red and often unusual mix of tones.

VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE 2010 PREVIEW : HUNGARY PAVILION

as part of this year’s international architecture biennale in venice, italy, the hungary pavilion explores the simplest and most fundamental act of the architect: drawing. ‘borderline‘ defines the line as the origin of the architectural idea as opposed to the house or space. Using the almost exclusively two-dimensional element as a focal point, the project utilizes nearly one hundred kilometres of thread to physically illustrate how lines are translated into architecture.
