Annie Vought Recreates Handwritten Letters with Papercutting

November 4, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Painstakingly sliced sentences by Oakland artist Annie Vought. In some of her works the lines on the paper provide a natural structure for a single piece and in others individual words are glued to pins. How obsessive compulsively awesome. See also Jill Sylvia. (via the best part)

Art from Arson in Detroit

November 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Salvaged Landscape is the result of a collaboration between artist Catie Newell and the non-profit Imagination Station that is working to reclaim blighted areas around Detroit. Catie transformed a building that was victim to arson into a new, potentially viable space. It sounds as though once they obtain more funding the remaining charred building will be torn down around Catie’s structure and a new building could be erected to incorporate it. (via core77)
