Back to Basics: Retro Electronics Made of Paper by Zim and Zou

July 7, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann are the wunderkind designers behind the contemporary design studio Zim and Zou based in Nancy, France. The duo explores a myriad of mediums including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration, and web design for their clients, landing their work in numerous print publications including Papercraft 2. This latest collection of work entitled Back to Basics is almost a year in the making (and apparently still in progress). Each colorful device is cut meticulously by hand utilizing sustainable paper, and even the smallest “waste” scraps are re-used to form some of the smallest detailed components. These are only a handful of the photos, see many more detailed shots here. Also check out their paper Gameboy from a while back. Sweet!

Congo Infrared

February 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

What you’re looking is not the result of Photoshop. This incredible collection of photos entitled INFRA from Eastern Congo was shot by 30-year-old photographer Richard Mosse using discontinued Kodak Aerochrome film. Mosse chose this infrared film to intentionally subvert traditional photos taken from the region to help draw attention to an often overlooked conflict.

INFRA; examines the conflict in Eastern Congo using Kodak Aerochrome, a recently discontinued film that was originally developed for military reconnaissance. These extraordinary colors are not the result of Photoshop. The project seeks a new strategy to represent Congo’s intangible conflict. Mosse chose to use this infrared aerial surveillance film out of context in order to explore how photography represents a place like Congo, a place deeply buried beneath its past cultural representations, from Heart of Darkness to Tin Tin. Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, and so the work alludes metaphorically to the conflict’s lack of visibility in our global consciousness, as well as (paradoxically) this endless war’s over-saturation in the mass media. Color infrared film portrays the world in a pink palette which the photographer uses to subvert the ways in which Congo and the African continent are traditionally photographed. He deliberately wishes to break the generic rules in order to question how we see (or don’t see) this war.

Andrew Hefter

Christopher Jobson

Splendid shots from photographer Andrew Hefter based out of Savannah, Georgia. From his site:

With a wide range of photographic interests, the idea of a photo about mystery (in the manner of Magritte) remains a core component of Andrew’s portrait and conceptual work; the content is meaningless save for its creation. His landscapes are additionally diverse, analyzing both the Romantic and contemporary landscape in modernist terms.

Five photos hardly scratches the surface of a rather deep portfolio of work.

Thread Installations by Sébastien Preschoux

October 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Sébastien Preschoux creates intricate installations in natural environments using hundreds of feet of multi-colored string. A quote from Preschoux from trendland:

Nowadays, the new generation disposes of images as a industrial rapidity and they are not asking themselves about where these things are coming from. Is it handmade or is it an electronic work? When they are faced with creating handmade work, they realize the labor and time it takes. The result is way more important than a printed work that is, easily reproduced. In my opinion, art makes sense if it is the result of the human hand.
