A Monochromatic Farewell to a Condemned House in Germany

September 30, 2013

Haus in Schwarz (House in Black) was a 2008 public art piece by artists Erik Sturm und Simon Jung (previously) in the city center of Möhringen, Germany. The piece was meant as a farewell to the building which was slated for demolition, with the matte black paint acting as a sort of final curtain to an exterior that had recently been used by numerous street artists, shown above. Does anyone know what occupies the space today?

Update: After demolition, the owner, art gallery manager Karin Abt-Straubinger built a new gallery (but the House in Black still haunts Google Maps). Thanks Gerhard.

The Travel Photography of Lukas Kozmus

November 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

While on a backpacking trip through India two years ago, 23-year-old student Lukas Kozmus realized how much he enjoyed using his tiny Sony camera to photograph the Ganges river, the Taj Mahal and other sights. After returning he quickly purchased a better DSLR and took it with him on treks to visit the Himalayas in Nepal, to Indonesia, and of course carried it around his native Berlin, all the while snapping the wonderfully dreamlike images you see here. I think this could be a bit more than a hobby, no? Lukas tells me he’s preparing for a trip to Morocco and I can’t wait to see what he brings back. You can see more of his work on Flickr.

I absolutely love the perspective in this pair of images by German photographer Christopher Hassler shot in a tunnel using a fisheye lens. See more of his work over on Facebook.

Street Artist ‘Megx’ Creates Giant Lego Bridge in Germany

July 5, 2012

Christopher Jobson

In October of last year street artist Megx converted a bridge in Wuppertal, Germany into a giant Lego structure using colored panels that create the illusion of being the underside of Lego bricks. The bridge itself is part of the Wuppertal Bewegung e.V., an old train line that has been converted to a pedestrian and cycle path. How great is this? There’s been no shortage of giant toys and games in the streets lately. See much more on his website. Photos above courtesy Lukas Power and Rolf Dellenbusch. (via kastormag)

The Trashcam Project: German Garbage Men Convert Dumpsters into Pinhole Cameras

April 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson

A group of enterprising and rather creative garbage men out of Hamburg, Germany have blended work with artistic expression by converting dumpsters into giant pinhole cameras, dubbed the Trashcam Project. The method is pretty straightforward: by drilling a small hole on one side of the dumpster, an image is projected onto a giant sheet of photo paper suspended inside. Each shot takes about an hour to capture and its then developed in their special lab. See many more photos from the ongoing project here. (via petapixel, photojojo)

Urban City by EVOL

July 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

German street artist EVOL has constructed this urban “X” in a field outside of Hamburg as part of the upcoming MS Dockville music and art festival. The structure took eight days to dig and construct and you can see an annotated photo series showing the process here. How unbelievably fun is this? Although I’m sure eight days is enough work, I can’t help but imagine what it would be like to scale this even larger into an entire network of entrenched skyscrapers. (via unurth)
