Keith Lemley: Something and Nothing

March 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

New work from Keith Lemley that just opened at 1708 Gallery in Richmond, VA.

Keith Lemley’s sculptural installation consists of concentric rings of white neon tubes the paths of which mimic the natural variation found in the logs at their center. Lemley creates a space for dialogue between nature and the machine by filling the gallery with artificial light that is delivered through seemingly organic forms. By combining the everyday occurrence of perceiving light with an unusual delivery method, Something and Nothing calls attention to “the phenomenology of sight, the physiology of perception, and the experience of being a living body in space.”

And if you liked that, see also his Luma series.

Clouds photographed 4 miles up through open airplane doors

February 24, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow captured these photos of clouds four miles above the Earth through open airplane doors. The video does a pretty good job of showing how they did it, maybe skip ahead to 2:30 or so just before they take off. More of his incredible work here.

Josh Sommers: Stereographic Projections

January 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Generally when I encounter stereographic photos they all tend to look the same to me, or it seems like an overused effect applied at will to any image simply to make it “cool”. I genuinely feel that way about tilt-shift photos lately. However when I saw Josh Sommer‘s work today I knew immediately this was something different, something better. There’s a crispness and intensity to these photos, in that they appear to have been planned from the beginning instead of having an effect slapped on afterward. Much, much more over on his Flickr, including some stereographic animations and equirectangular panoramas. (via design boom)
