Kyung Woo Han

Green Room is an installation by South Korean artist Kyung Woo Han who has an MFA in Film, Video and New Media from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. With nothing more than a little paint, some furniture, and clear wire he’s created one of the most stunning spacial visual effects I’ve encountered in a long time. To fully appreciate what’s going on you can catch a video on his site as someone (presumably Han) navigates the space. (via look in art)

Love the concept of this modular LED film light by Davide Groppi. Each individual unit containing 10 slides can be attached to another for a potentially unlimited stream of photos or colors. (via mocoloco)

French artist Armelle Caron abstracts urban city plans into organized components.

Caron deconstructs cities, identifies fragments, classifies blocks by size and shape. All meaning, memory, void and heritage is kept away by decontextualization. The urban assemblage of the “villes rangées” relies on analysis, order, rhythm, dimension, typology, strata.

The installed prints were accompanied by similar wooden cutouts that could then be organized similarly by visitors. (via things magazine / pytr75)

Photographed by Christian Stoll for Pricewaterhouse Coopers Magazine without the use of retouching. Just good old-fashioned anamorphic set design. (via lustik)

I break my 700 post streak of Star Wars-less posts today. This hysterical new advert for the 2012 Passat is too good to pass up.

German photographer Heiko Schäfer captured these delicate yet haunting portraits of wooden boats used by African refugees trying to enter the EU illegally via the Mediterranean. (via pitch design union)
