Complexity Graphics by Tatiana Plakhova

May 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’ve been waiting months for the opportunity to bring Tatiana Plakhova’s work onto Colossal but wanted to make sure it was something brand new that hadn’t been widely circulated online. Just today she published this incredible new series of digital artwork called NOOSPHERE that blends her signature algorithmic and gemotetric line work with landscape photography. If her work is new to you and you want to learn more, start here.

Minuscule by Maite Guerrero

While we’re on the theme of teeny tiny art, here are some fun photo manipulations by Barcelona-based Maite Guerrero. It’s rare anything digital like this makes it onto Colossal, but there is such care in how each one of these is created, the attention to color, depth, and scale makes these truly special. See more on Behance.

The Skewed Sculptures of Evan Penny

March 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Do not adjust this blog post, and no I didn’t have an accident in Photoshop. This is the recent work of Canadian artist Evan Penny who creates stretched and skewed sculptural portraits that tower over 9 feet tall. Some of his other work is actually hyper-realistic, in that he uses silicone and other materials to mimic the texture of skin and hair down to the detail of every last follicle on a large scale. In 2007 Penny began working with an advanced 3D scanning process that allows him to skew objects virtually and then print them in foam using a rapid prototyping method, using the resulting framework as a base for the rest of the sculpture. Awesome stuff.

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.
