The Geometric Paper Torso, Now with DIY Templates and Tutorials

A year ago I wrote about this amazing geometric paper torso designed by artist Horst Kiechle. At the time the piece wasn’t actually complete as he was still perfecting how all the organs fit together thanks to feedback he received online. At long last the model is done and Kiechle launched an extensive website with free downloadable templates you can print and assemble along with photographed step-by-step instructions for every single piece. So now there’s no excuse to not spend the next three months of your life on this. Good luck!

Patrick Bérubé: Incidence

December 31, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I love the subtle effect of this installation by Patrick Bérubé. At a distance it looks simply like a white toy container ship resting on the gallery floor. On closer inspection you realize the entire gallery floor has been modified, the gaps between the wooden floorboards mimicking the ocean wake behind the lumbering toy vessel. The piece is part of the Fenêtre sur cour exposition at Gallerie SAS in Montréal that runs through January 12.

Soon Young Lee

Soon Young Lee photographs these delightful miniature rooms overgrown with moss and sprouts, incorporating a number of other bizarre and surreal elements. They’re kind of like Slinkachu meets Jumanji. Yeah, it’s after midnight and that’s all I’ve got. See more over on Art Hub. (images via galerie mariska hammoudi and art hub)

Thomas Doyle’s Apocalyptic Dioramas

September 19, 2011

(click images for detail)

Using materials that would equally be at home amongst idyllic model train sets artist Thomas Doyle builds these incredibly intricate mixed media dioramas that instead suggest something much darker. The sense of loss and a brooding darkness is present in almost every piece, where homes dangle on sheer cliffs, or are surrounded by apocalyptic waste. The four pieces above entitled A corrective, Refuge, The barrage lifts, and Firing for effect are among the most recent works from his Distillation series, which I strongly urge you to click through if you’ve never encountered his work before.

I found Thomas Doyle while working my way through the strangely-named but enjoyable Gorky’s Granddaughter, an interview series by Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting who sit down and chat casually with incredible artists. Good stuff.

Inner Space is a lovely series of photos by London-based Owen Silverwood that depicts miniaturized spacecraft blasting through confined aquatic landscapes. Thanks Owen for sharing your work with Colossal! (via notcot)
