I am flabbergasted. Somehow in my ventures around the internet I have never stumbled onto the work of Federico Uribe. Born in Bogota, Colombia, in 1962, Federico Uribe lives and works in Miami. He uses thousands, nay, millions and billions of tiny common objects to create some of the most elaborate sculpture I have ever seen. (via nytimes.com)

Motorized wooden marionettes by Juan Pablo Cambariere

January 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Seven Basic Exercises is a collection of incredible marionettes by Buenos Aires based artist and designer Juan Pablo Cambariere from a show at Turbo Gallery. It’s astounding how humanistic their physical actions are, considering they’re comprised mostly of plain interlinked blocks. His web site also has a fantastic gallery of additional puppet photos, and don’t miss his typeface. (via the automata / automation blog)

Traumgedanken: A physical hyperlink book by Maria Fischer

January 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

GGrr kmvmdgfffff uy. Hold on, trying to pick my jaw up off the keyboard. Traumgedanken (Thoughts on Dreams) by German artist Maria Fischer is a 76-page collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientific texts on dream theories interlinked with thread.

To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.

Work from Stockholm-based artist Anders Krisár. I especially enjoy the last piece, a bronze cast attached to a heat isolator in close proximity to another cast made of beeswax. Pretty incredible. (via designspiration)
