Torn Paper Sculptures by Anna-Wili Highfield

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Wonderful paper animal sculptures by Sydney-based artist Anna-Wili Highfield.

The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings.

Lauren DiCioccio Stitches Media and Money

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I grew up in a house where the sound of my mom’s sewing machine was constantly hammering away in the background, so it’s easy for me to appreciate how much time it must take Lauren DiCioccio to make these pieces with just a needle and thread. Especially enjoy her sewnnews series. (via who killed bambi)

Andrew Smith: Kinetic Sculpture

November 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Utah artist Andrew Smith creates incredible kinetic sculptures from stuff found in junk yards and garage sales. His junk collection fills a 30-by-50-foot steel structure, and from the thousands of discarded industrial scraps he assembles mechanical Rube-Goldberesque machines from scratch. Definitely watch the video above to see some of the stuff in motion, there’s also a making of for a piece he built for the Salt Lake City Childrens Museum, and another interview he did in 2006.

The Whimsical Work of Tom Foulsham

November 29, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Wow loving this clever and wacky stuff by UK artist Tom Foulsham. Of particular note is the super-insane Wiggle Table equipped with a mechanism that converts keyboard input into correlating vibrations in an adjacent table. A second person then uses a pencil to create a line across that table and as if by magic legible writing appears. (via co.design)

Two great art prints designed by Merrick Angle. No longer available, d’oh, but still pretty. Lots more stuff in the Double Merrick store though. (via design work life)

Interactive butterfly installation by Dominic Harris

November 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Flutter is a really impressive interactive artwork by Dominic Harris of Cinimod Studio. The installation consists of a linear array of 88 vertical double-sided video fins projecting from a mirrored surface. Butterflies are projected on the screens and then react to the motion of your hand or body as you pass by.
