Artist Cassanda C. Jones has just completed a new series where she meticulously arranges long-exposure photographs of stormy skies, using small fragments of lightning strikes to form line drawings of electrified rabbits and circles. The works are yet to be titled, but will be available as large format ink jet prints in editions of two. All images courtesy the artist and Eli Ridgway Gallery, San Francisco.
Colossal now has a full-fledged Flickr pool where you can submit artwork, photography, design projects or anything else of interest. Creating the group is partially selfish in that I’m always on the prowl for new content and it’s an easy way for anyone to submit work and be sure that I’ll see it. Additionally, it’s also a great way for anyone who follows this site to see the ongoing work of many artists whose work has appeared here, so add it to your daily stops. I invited a small group yesterday and look what’s already started trickling in. So excited! Check it out.
Sagaki Keita (previously) has updated his website with no less than a dozen new works completed this year alone. Keita continues his method of using manically scribbled doodles to create mind-melting illustrations of classic Roman statues. That he could create a single one of these in a year would impress me, but twelve seems simply inhuman. The earlier post of Keita’s work was one of the most popular in this blog’s history, and I’m so glad to be able to share his work with you again.
UK-based artist Susan Stockwell recently completed this gigantic world map made from recycled computer components for the University of Bedfordshire. Entitled World, the piece has been in progress since 2010 and uses motherboards, electrical wiring, fans, and myriad other components donated by Secure IT Recycling. Although Stockwell has worked with electronic components for additional projects, her work with paper is also extraordinary and has been making the rounds quite a bit.
