New Skull Made of Typewriter Parts by Jeremy Mayer typewriters sculpture anatomy

Artist Jeremy Mayer (previously) recently completed a new sculpture titled Skull I made from vintage typewriter parts. As with all of his assemblages the skull was created without use of welding or adhesives, instead the parts are bent, screwed, and bolted into place using only components extracted from typewriters.

New to me, these wonderful land art installations by Swiss artist Sylvain Meyer who modifies wooded areas and landscapes to create various impermanent patterns, sculptures, and textures. Everything seen here was constructed without the use of Photoshop, even the mossy spider. Whoa! See much more over on Flickr. I’ve also finally crated a land art tag for Colossal.

I was absolutely floored watching this enchanting stop motion video directed by Vincent Pianina and Lorenzo Papace for a song called Østersøen that was also written, composed, and recorded by Papace for his band Ödland off the album Sankta Lucia. What strikes me most about the video is the transitions between scenes, as objects change scale or as the camera zooms in to reveal alternate dimensions embedded in the smallest of areas. You’ll watch it two or three times before you see everything. See many more making-of photos over on Le Petit Écho Malade. Can somebody please give this Papace guy lots of money so he can make a short film? I would pay lots of money to see it.

Auckland-based artist Peter Madden gleans found images from old encyclopedias, back issues of National Geographic, and nature books to create his dense and nearly psychedelic collages suspended in perspex, also known as ‘safety glass’. Of his work Madden says “I consider myself a ‘Sculptographer’; a ‘post-conceptual photographer’. A mediator between genres and dimensions, between you, the other and I. I suppose I am an altogether different collagist, maybe a collagist of difference.” To see much more of his three dimensional work, check out this gallery.

Lithuanian photographer and artist Tadao Cern has been working on a series of hilarious portraits entitled, ahem, Blow Job, that depicts individuals enduring gale-force winds directly to the face. Say goodbye to the next 15 minutes, he’s taken 100 portraits so far. And if you liked these, here’s a similar series by Jonathan Robert Willis from last year. (via behance)

I have an enormous folder of saved links, things I’m on the edge about posting, or just want to save for later reference. From time to time patterns start to emerge and it just make sense to post everything at once, as has happened with books, waves, and people as pixels. Lately the theme has been trees, and these are my favorite tree-related endeavors I’ve encountered the last few weeks.
