Just in Time: Xavier Antin's chain-linked printers

January 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

London-based artist Xavier Antin devised this beautifully orchestrated printing process to create his book “Just in Time, or A Short History of Production”. While I don’t think the paper was physically fed through all four printers at once, each printer was responsible for a color plate starting with an 1880 stencil duplicator printing magenta and ending with 1976 inkjet printer for yellow.

The Luminous Earth Grid

January 11, 2011

The Luminous Earth Grid was a 1993 installation by artist Stuart Williams erected 50 miles north of San Francisco.

Luminous Earth Grid, an array of 1,680 energy-efficient fluorescent lamps, swept over 10 acres of undulating landscape, 50 miles north of San Francisco. Said the artist, “I see the project as a poetic statement on the potential harmony between technology and nature.” Over a five year period, Williams launched a rigorous fund raising campaign throughout Northern California, and raised nearly half a million dollars to realize the massive project. It was widely acclaimed by critics around the globe and drew tens of thousands of visitors.

I would have loved to see this firsthand. (via behance)

Federico Uribe

I am flabbergasted. Somehow in my ventures around the internet I have never stumbled onto the work of Federico Uribe. Born in Bogota, Colombia, in 1962, Federico Uribe lives and works in Miami. He uses thousands, nay, millions and billions of tiny common objects to create some of the most elaborate sculpture I have ever seen. (via nytimes.com)
