Several amazing sculptures from Chihyun Shin’s recent exhibition at Gaain Gallery in Seoul. Shin’s objects are created from a delicate layer of interwoven patterns, the shark appears to be embedded with a tightly-knit school of fish, while the chicken, rabbit and person seem to be made of flowers and other plants. I was unable to reliably translate much more from the Korean sites I found these on, so head over to Art Hub and Dinonabi to see more.
One would assume at first glance that there is no other place Hengki Koentjoro could be taking photographs than a fantastical, alternate dimension, perhaps retrieving the photos nightly from his dreams. As it turns out these recent photos were taken in various places around Indonesia, and you can follow Koentjoro’s journies on Flickr.
For the past few months Atelier Olschinsky (previously) has been cranking out these stunning illustrations which he titles, simply, Cities and Plants. The complex hybrid of digital illustration and architecture is stunning, and several are available as fine art prints. Head over to Behance to take a deep dive, there are literally dozens of them.
This is some of the most honest and beautiful packaging I’ve encountered in a while. Designed by Doubleday and Cartwright for BluePrintJuice, the entire label is simply a list of plain ingredients printed in a color that contrasts with the juice inside. If only all food packaging could be this user-friendly. Steve Jobs would approve. (via design work life)
A number of striking sculptures from the first solo exhibition of Korean artist Jang Yong Sun entitled Particles of Dark Matter. Sun welds thousands of steel rings to form these amoeba-like structures that despite having the appearance of being precariously fragile must be extremely heavy. If you like these, you might also enjoy the work of Mike Castator. (via 준다메다 and art company gig)
UK-based graphic designer and illustrator Jing Zhang is currently working on a beautiful series of isometric letters, rendering typographical forms as small industrial buildings, machines, factories, and landscapes. Via Behance she says the hardest part isn’t creating them, but finishing them, and that she’s running out of patience. Maybe we should encourage her a bit? I can’t wait to see the rest of these. See more of the series here.
The Bubble Tank by Richard Bell, Thomas McKeown and David Powell of Psalt Design is made to look as if the aquarium is moments from precariously dripping off the edge of a counter top. An alternative name could be the Anxiety Tank. (via juxtapoz)
