Six stunning desktop wallpapers by Italian illustrator and graphic designer Alberto Seveso available for download here. The images were created by taking high-speed photographs of ink mixing with water. These are the only desktops I will use for the rest of my life. (via behance)

Enjoying these folded book sculptures by photographer Cara Barer.

With the discarded books that I have acquired, I am attempting to blur the line between objects, sculpture, and photography. This project has become a journey that continues to evolve. […] No important books have been injured during the making of any of these photographs.

I remember seeing Chris Scarborough‘s wide-eyed Ideal Species series (scroll through this if you haven’t seen it before) a while back, so it was a surprise to see these incredible illustrations were by the same artist. If you’re in North Carolina his work is on display as part of the Art on Paper 2010 exhibit at the Weatherspoon Guild Gallery through February 6.

Inversion House

December 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

In 2005 Art League Houston had two decaying studio houses that were soon to be replaced by a new building. Prior to demolition the two homes were given to sculptors Dan Havel and Dean Ruck who proceeded to convert them into a giant vortex of maximum, unadulterated awesomeness.

Havel and Ruck created a large funnel-like vortex beginning from the west wall adjacent to Montrose Blvd. The exterior skin of the houses was peeled off and used to create the narrowing spiral as it progressed eastward through the small central hallway connecting the two buildings and exiting through a small hole into an adjacent courtyard.

Ecstasy is an enormous sculpture by artists Karen Cusolito and Dan Das Mann that’s been on display since February on Patricia’s Green in San Francisco. If you’re lucky enough to be in the area, this is your last chance to see it as the piece will be removed at the end of the week. Many more wonderful photos via Thomas Hawk.
