Artist Eric Standley (previously here and here) laser cuts sheets of paper, creating intricately patterned forms by stacking the sheets over 100 layers high. The final works reflect classical stained glass windows, and are inspired by geometric patterns found in both Gothic and Islamic architecture. Recently these designs reference fractal geometry, a rhythmic pattern that is self-replicating. More

More Sky,” a thesis project by architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia, gives those with cramped apartments the chance to spread out—out beyond the walls of one’s living space. The project merges a window, lounge, and skylight, surrounding users in natural light while providing a bit more space just outside their apartment’s confines.
Each of the concepts serves as a niche that can provide more access to natural light and nature within an urban environment. More

Spanish street artist Pejac (previously) just stopped by Istanbul where he painted three new trompe-l’œil pieces in the district of Uskudar titled Lock, Poster and Shutters. Painted with brushes, acrylic paint, pencils and sandpaper the works are located very close together are intended to represent the “perception and illusion of freedom.” He mentions the literal translation of Trompe l’oeil from French as “eye trap,” and says “in the case of these three windows, the trap works in both directions: from outside to inside and from inside to outside.”

Early last month, Spanish artist Pejac (previously) created a fun silhouette artwork commemorating the 40th anniversary of French high-wire walker Philippe Petit’s daring walk between the Twin Towers in New York. In Pejac’s version, a tightrope walker painted in black acrylic on an interior window is shown walking along an airplane contrail several miles away in the sky. The fun optical illusion caught the attention of Sasha Bogojev over at Hi-Fructose who discovered the artist has been creating similar silhouette artworks since 2011. More

For their very first date, photographer Nick Olson took designer Lilah Horwitz on a walk in the mountains of West Virginia. While chatting and getting to know each other during a particularly scenic sunset the two jokingly wondered what it would be like to live in a house where the entire facade was windows, so the sunset would never be contained within a small space. Where most people would file the idea away as a dream or maybe an item at the bottom of a bucket list, the newly minted couple were a bit more aggressive. More

I’m loving this series of simple, non-destructive interventions by artist Aakash Nihalani (previously) who is widely known for his observational street art involving neon-colored tape in various geometric forms. Nihalani opens a solo show starting January 12th, 2013 at Jonathan LeVine. (via arrested motion) More
