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.

Andy Diaz Hope, Painting with Pills

November 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered the work of San Francisco artist Andy Diaz Hope who transfers photographs onto elaborate grids of gel caplets.

Andy Diaz Hope deconstructs his own digital photographs and painstakingly reassembles the original image in a mosaic of gelatin pill capsules, each containing small portions from several original prints. As a continuation of his Morning After Portraits series, Diaz Hope has turned his lens on the hidden landscapes of drug culture—from high school hideaways to psychiatric institutions.

Some of his more recent work involving tapestries and mirrors (the pill work above spans 2004-2007) is on display now at Catharine Clark Gallery through January 1st. (via beautiful/decay)

A 2009 series, Sentient Orbs, from Glasgow-based littlewhitehead, who wants to “beat you up visually” which is probably my new favorite phrase.
