Bruce Munros Newest Light Installation at the Holbourne Museum lighting light installation Bath

Artist Bruce Munro has unveiled his latest light installation at Holbourne Museum in Bath. The field of more than 5,000 Christmas lights atop acrylic stems sprawls across the museum grounds intending to mimic the way a barren desert bursts into bloom after a brief rainfall. See much more over at the Daily Mail. (via notcot)

After graduating from the Tasmanian School of Art in 2002, Sean Edward Whelan left Australia to discover the mysteries of Japan, settling in Joetsu, Niigata where he began working as an English teacher and now works as an illustrator and artist. His lovely pencil drawings depicting a rich texture of traditional Japanese buildings, bridges and lanterns, create singular super structures in the shape of people. I can’t tell you how much I love these. Whelan had his first solo show earlier this year at No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne, and you can see much more of his work here and here.

If you like these illustrations, you might also like the works of Vasco Mourao and Sagaki Keita. All images courtesy the artist.

Update: There’s now a nice interview with Whelan over on Charles and Ford.

Here’s a wonderful zoetrope animation using paper discs mounted on bicycle wheels by Katy Beveridge as part of her 3rd year dissertation project at CSM in London. Beveridge mentions being partially influenced by the technique of Tim Wheatley who has also explored the ideas of bicycle-wheel animation. See many more zoetrope videos previously on Colossal.

The 2011 Christchurch earthquake was the largest natural disaster in New Zealand’s history, claiming the lives of 181 people and leaving behind nearly $30 billion in rebuilding costs. Touched by the events of that February day, photographer Fabrice Wittner set out to confront the destruction the best way he knew how: by making art. His Enlightened Souls project utilizes large, human-sized stencils that are painted with light during long exposures, creating thin portraits that appear almost like holograms. Many more images and process shots can be seen here. Images courtesy the artist. (via behance)

Hi-Fructose has a brief interview with artist Gehard Demetz as well as several exquisite photos of new work. Demetz carves almost lifelike wood sculptures of children that appear riddled with gaps and are often impacted with objects. The artist currently has work at the Venice Biennale through December 8th.
