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.

Jon Duenas is a fashion, editorial, and fine art photographer out of Portland, Oregon. Mixed into his extensive portfolio are a number of stunning double exposure photographs that, as Bobby Solomon puts it, seem to show the “details of nature blooming through portraits of young women”. You can see a few more over at the Fox is Black, and on Duenas’ website. If you like these also check out the work of Florian Imgrund and Matt Wisniewski.

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)

The Trashcam Project: German Garbage Men Convert Dumpsters into Pinhole Cameras Germany cameras

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)
