Aerial is a new site-specific installation by Baptiste Debombourg (previously) at an old Benedictine monastery called Brauweiler Abbey near Cologne, Germany. Debombourg used numerous sheets of shattered laminate glass to mimic a frothy flood of water rushing into a room. Remarkably beautiful work. See much more by clicking on the thumbnails here.

Latvian artist Alex Konahin spent two weeks drawing this gorgeous skull for clothing company Heretics using little more than black ink and a few dip pens (and probably a few decades of artistic experience). Konahin’s similarly meticulous line art was making the rounds on a number of blogs earlier this week. See much more over on Behance.

Figurative sculptor Gabriel Rufete works with a number of different materials to create delicate, fractured, and often incomplete interpretations of the human form. Among my favorite pieces are his works with welded euro cent pieces. See more on his website. (thnx, perez)

Gravity Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads sculpture land art installation

German artist Cornelia Konrads creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.

What you see here only begins to sratch the surface of Konrad’s work. You can see much more on her website. All imagery courtesy the artist.

I personally don’t have any tattoos but feel with near certainty that if I ever get one it will involve the added price of a plane ticket to Berlin to visit artist Peter Aurisch (nsfw). Using a lovely mix of geometric lines that mix with bold colors and assorted lifeforms, his work is so unlike anything I’ve ever seen in a tattoo. You can see much more recent work on his Facebook page (also slightly nsfw). (via visual news, blog nova central)

I’m in love with these gorgeous works by Madrid-based illustrator Gabriel Moreno that intertwine the lives of individuals and animals through endless bands of line work. Almost all of the pieces above are available as prints, and you can follow his ongoing works via Facebook. (via devid sketchbook)

A group of enterprising and rather creative garbage men out of Hamburg, Germany have blended work with artistic expression by converting dumpsters into giant pinhole cameras, dubbed the Trashcam Project. The method is pretty straightforward: by drilling a small hole on one side of the dumpster, an image is projected onto a giant sheet of photo paper suspended inside. Each shot takes about an hour to capture and its then developed in their special lab. See many more photos from the ongoing project here. (via petapixel, photojojo)

Stillness in Motion is a sculpture by Cleveland-based artist Olga Ziemska that was installed in 2003 at the Centre of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko, Poland. The piece is made entirely from cut willow branches that have been cut and stacked to create a human figure. (via junk culture, devid sketchbook)
