Aakash Nihalani

May 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Aakash Nihalani uses brightly colored tape to create isometric rectangles and squares in locations around New York, and has recently started a series where he interacts with these geometric shapes to great effect. Via his web site:

For however briefly, I am trying to offer people a chance to step into a different New York than they are used to seeing, and in turn, momentarily escape from routine schedules and lives. We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully, as a world dominated by the interplay of very basic color and shape. I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality.

Clouds photographed 4 miles up through open airplane doors

February 24, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow captured these photos of clouds four miles above the Earth through open airplane doors. The video does a pretty good job of showing how they did it, maybe skip ahead to 2:30 or so just before they take off. More of his incredible work here.

Pixel Clouds by Daniel Arsham

February 17, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Delicate plastic sculpture work by artist Daniel Arsham. Though the web site labels the materials as “plastic” my hunch would be these are ping pong balls that have been dyed and somehow adhered into these incredible structures. (via ignant)

Blown Glass Cumulus Ornaments by Mendel Heit

November 29, 2010

Christopher Jobson

A pretty swanky mouth-blown glass ornament (“ball”) from artist Mendel Heit out of Berlin. From the artist’s web site:

This particular christmas ball is an invite to go back to your to childhood memories, your first video game, activate your deepest imagination, maybe like the ones that come during an afternoon when you’re lying in the grass and spotting for the funniest clouds you can find. Cumulus is the easiest way to bring back your own little cloud at home.

Available at locations listed at the bottom of his web site. Unfortunately nowhere online I can find. (via yanko)
