Paris-born artist Cedric Le Borgne creates these illuminated human figures (Les Voyageurs) and deer (La Biche) using delicately sculpted chicken wire. The figures are often installed in highly visible public places, suspended in the air in parks or in busy urban centers. Via his website:

Cédric Le Borgne invites everyone to view daily life in a fresh way, to rise up, to dream. By abolishing barriers, his work of exploring spaces is sensitive, his poetry subtly interacts with each place it comments upon. From sculptures made of chicken wire to photo or video, from perennial installations to spontaneous performance, from street-art to web-art, his work is free of formal constraints.

Le Borgne’s work is currently on display along the South Bailey in Durham, England as part of Durham Lumiere, the UK’s largest light festival. (via dark silence in suburbia)

Fear and Loathing on Tatooine

Fear and Loathing on Tatooine Star Wars posters and prints pop culture movies

A Star Wars reference is rare on Colossal, but this new print by Anton Marrast (previously) is exceptionally genius. What happens on Tatooine stays on Tatooine. Pick up a copy via S6. (via the colossal flickr pool)

Beautiful yet somewhat chilling watercolor paintings by artist Danny Quirk who lives and works out of Springfield, Massachusetts. Via his website:

My anatomical works combine classic poses, in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, with a very contemporary twist… illustrating what’s underneath the skin, and the portrayed figure dissects a region of their body to show the structures that lay beneath.

I think these are really lovely. And if you like them you’ll most likely appreciate these anatomical paintings by Michael Reedy (nsfw), make sure to zoom in for detail. (via interrupted toughts)

A Sterographic Projection Made with Individual Photos

A Sterographic Projection Made with Individual Photos stereographic projection boats

I love a good stereographic projection but they seem to be everywhere these days so it’s hard to find somebody doing something truly unique with the method. Buenos Aires-based art student Adrian Felipe Pera managed to do it though with this wonderful boat capture. Instead of skewing the image digitally he used some 40+ large photographs placed in the sand on a beach to create a projection of an old wooden boat. See some more of his planeticas.

Design duo Pamela Campagna and husband Thomas Scheiderbauer of L-able created these two intricate thread portraits using old family photographs. Each piece took nearly a month, beginning with the large family portrait using black thread and moving on to the multi-toned woman. I’m such a sucker for this kind of work, being drawn to the geometry that’s used to create the organic shapes. Thanks Pam for sharing your work with Colossal!
