Venn Diagram Clock

March 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

About Time is a clock by RISD grad and Fulbright scholar Louie Rigano that abstracts the precise function of hour, minute and second hands to translucent, amorphous color wheels. The accuracy and function of such a clock is somewhat debatable and I would probably consider this more of an art piece than a means of making it to an interview on time. Unfortunately this is just a prototype but according to Rigano he plans to eventually put it into production. Yes, please. (via fastco)

Armelle Caron

New York

Berlin

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)

Vibrant Rorschach prints from Portland designer Matt W. Moore. I first saw these a couple days ago and the images have permanently seared themselves into my brain.

Love these installations by Marc Anthony-Polizzi. Gah and he’s a couple years younger than me. I quit. Many more images of this and other contemporary installations in the new book Staging Space. (via we make money not art)

Gabriel Dawe’s Thread Rainbows

November 19, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Thread installations by Gabriel Dawe.

Gabriel Dawe was born in Mexico City where he grew up surrounded by the intensity and color of Mexican culture. After working as a graphic designer, he moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000 following a desire to explore foreign land. In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture.

If you like this you’ll love the work of Sébastien Preschoux. (via world’s best)
