Where’s your head at

June 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

At its core the basic premise of this photo series by Italian photographer and designer Francesco Brunotti isn’t something tremendously new, that is the digital removal of objects from images, for instance Seats by Jens Sage. But in its art direction and execution something wonderful emerges and I found myself smiling hugely. See his first series, and the second.

Designer Marco Ugolini demonstrates the proper way to hold a poster within a poster within a poster etc. Via his web site:

Contribution for the exhibition Connected Project in Breda, the Netherlands, 2010. Here, I make a statement on the relation between the graphic designers and the poster as a media. This is a poster of me holding a poster of me holding a poster of me holding a poster, and so on.

All at once delicate and nightmarish these painted polymer clay figures by Seoul-based artist Choi Xooang are nothing short of remarkable. Try as I might it’s hard to find a definitive, trustworthy article to source information from, and even the spelling of his name seems to change from site to site. However it seems generally accepted that Xooang is attempting to draw attention to human rights abuses in Korea, and seeing these somewhat macabre, stunted figures unable to see or speak, it’s hard to dispute that. Also, if you like this, you’ll most might enjoy the work of Emil Alzamora. (via blaaahg, lustik)

I am thrilled to share with you the work of sculptor Michael Beitz who makes some of the most bizarre and humorous sculptures I’ve seen in quite some time by subverting familiar forms of anatomy, nature, and even furniture. Beitz is currently at the John Michael Kohler Art Center Residency in Kohler, Wisconsin and will join artist Larry Bob Phillips in July for a project at Recess Space in New York. He is also planning to have a piece in the Smack Mellon Emerging Artists show in July. On his website, check out his Folding House, a structure erected entirely with a bicycle pedal-powered device.
