Hideyuki Sawayanagi

February 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Japanese artist Hideyuki Sawayanagi creates incredible halftone photographs by drilling hundreds of small holes at variable widths into sheets of aluminum. Or at least that’s the only way I can imagine it. Click on the photos to see the detail, but also squint your eyes or back away from the monitor to see the photos emerge more vividly. A couple more images over at the ex-chamber museum.

Todd McLellan: Deconstructed

February 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

It seems like just last week I posted the deconstructed objects of Adam Vorhees, and now here’s the work of Todd McClellan who carefully dissects, organizes, and photographs the nostalgic objects of yesterday. Don’t miss the time-lapse video on his site. (via lustik, flavorwire)

Infographics in Context

February 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

As part of a degree project for the Danish Design School, graphic designer Peter Ørntoft turned people and physical spaces into into contextual infographics.

The project deals with data from a list of the social related interests of the Danish people. The list is the result of an opinion poll from a major consultancy company in Denmark. I have used the context of specific opinion polls within each interest to shape and design diagrams. By doing so the receiver understands more layers of information about the data.

What a great and extremely successful solution. (via laughing squid)

Fossilized: Recyclable Magazine Furniture

February 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Designed by Belgian industrial designer Jens Praet these sleek and textured furniture pieces are constructed from shredded magazines and documents mixed with clear resin. Each of the 12 pieces was made solely from a different magazine including publications like Art in America, Details, and Fast Company. Nine of them are currently on display as part of Praet’s first U.S. solo show, Fossilized, at Industrial Gallery in Washington D.C. through February 26. (via yatzer)

The Magnetic States of America

This sure beats colored plastic letters, although it could prove challenging to spell ‘poop’ with the east coast when mom isn’t looking. The whole puzzle measures about 12″ wide by 7″ tall and is made of solid oak. Beautiful. Pick one up on for $55. (thnx, megan!)
