In 1973 Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill stumbled upon a cement factory in Catalonia, Spain, an enormous compound of silos and buildings that covered nearly two and a half miles of underground tunnels. Bofill decided to buy The World War I era structure and its grounds, making modifications to the original structure in order to create an all-inclusive live/work space that would unite the Surrealist, Abstract, and Brutalist elements found in its industrial form.

Turkey-based artist Ali Alamedy had been building miniature sets for seven years when he came across documentation of Charles Miner's photography studio from the early 1900s. Inspired by the way sunlight was used to illuminate studio sets, Alamedy decided to build his own version in 1:12 scale. The project took him over nine months, using hundreds of feet of wood, and building more than 100 miniature objects designed specifically to fit the era.

Photographer Mark Mawson has published a wonderful series of fourteen new underwater ink photographs entitled Aqueous Fluoreau. The images are stunning not only for their vibrant colors but their almost sculptural appearance. His previous projects from the same family, Aqueous and Aqueous II are also incredible and worth your time. If you liked this, also check out the work of Alberto Seveso. (via behance) More

It never ceases to amaze me: just when I think I’ve seen every possible permutation of an artform or technique—be it figurative sculpture, stop motion animation, or in this case, high speed photography—somebody comes along and manages to do something radically different. German photographer Heinz Maier says that he began taking photographs less than a year ago in late 2010. More

Photographer Alan Sailer spends an inordinate amount of time photographing objects meeting a violent demise by means of high speed projectiles, high voltage explosions, and sometimes just hurling things at a wall. I love the other-worldly appearance some of the objects take on, especially the pear that appears to be liquifiying from the inside out. There are thousands of photos in his Flickr stream, the above are some of his most recent, and here are some of his favorites. More

Over the past few months I’ve encountered a fair share of high-speed exploding balloon photos, some of which have found their way onto Colossal including the work of Edward Horsford and recently Ryan Taylor. However these magnificent captures by designer James Huse are something wholly different. The surface of these inverted balloon photos flare and whorl like solar flares on the Sun, and yet simultaneously appear cold and frozen, perhaps the result of Huse’s decision to use milk-filled balloons.
