Dutch artist Marjan Teeuwen eviscerates the walls of abandoned buildings, conjoining rooms with massive holes, and uses leftover fragments to create densely textured walls and surfaces. In the last photo, a project entited Destroyed House, Teeuwen removed the walls from a post-war apartment block in Amsterdam and sawed the building’s doors into hundreds of fragments, using them in turn to construct layered partitions. Walls made from doors. In other works she uses countless objects crammed into small rooms, creating claustrophobic spaces that appear on the verge of collapse, putting any contemporary hoarder to shame. If you want to learn more you can catch this 44 minute documentary of the artist at work. Photos courtesy Happy Famous Artists.

Here’s a great interview with one of my favorite artists, Federico Uribe (previously) who uses repurposed objects like athletic shoes and hardware to create sculptures of animal and plant life. The video captures numerous shots of his current exhibition, The World According to Federico Uribe at the Boca Raton Museum of Art that’s still up through December 4. One of my favorite quotes from the video: “In time I learned that celebrating life was better than complaining about it.” Words to live by. The interview was produced and directed by David Marin of Pelicruise Film Group. (thnx, david!)

Poly is a new geometric drawing app for the iPad by Seoul-based interaction designer Jean-Christophe Naour of Innoiz. The program lets you import imagery and trace it geometrically while it averages color based on data within each triangular field. Can’t wait to try it out, it looks gorgeous.

Toronto-based artist Nicholas Di Genova illustrates incredible hybrid creatures using nothing more than ink on paper. His terrifying amalgams of reptiles, mammals, aquatic and plant life often feature densely compacted textures of hair and scales that seem to multiply like fractals on the surface of the animal’s skin. Nicholas opened a solo show last week at Galerie Dukan Hourdequin in Paris which will be up through December 3. The images above are amazing, but head over to his Tumblr to see them in more detail.

Stunning New Time Lapse Video from the International Space Station

A few weeks ago a beautiful time lapse video shot from the International Space Station made the rounds. When I saw this new video pop up on Vimeo I assumed it was the same thing, but immediately realized it was something wholly more incredible, not to mention five times longer. This new (or newly edited?) video was shot with a special low-light 4K-camera by the crew of expeditions 28 and 29 onboard the ISS from August to October, 2011 and captures numerous shots of the Aurora Borealis. I recommend clicking HD full-screen for this one. Edited by Michael König.

That’s it, I’m going to space.

Keep Drawing

Keep Drawing video art people inspiration illustration drawing animation

A new rotoscopic animation by Seoul-based Studio Shelter (previously) in which every single frame is a different character in a different style, frequently switching mediums between pencils, pens, markers, and even paint. What a perfect and wonderful way to capture the frustrations and rewards of drawing through the medium itself. I watched the whole clip twice and was amazed, but it wasn’t until the third time when I started hitting pause repeatedly that I realized how many hundreds of hidden treasures flash before your eyes. I definitely recommend spending some time with it. Directed by Ha Juan.
