Art at Altitude: Watch Artist Simon Beck Trample Calculated Murals onto Snowy Mountaintops

February 24, 2016

Christopher Jobson

We just featured new snow drawings by artist Simon Beck earlier this month, but this new short film by Great Big Story takes us behind the scenes as he tramples a number of new pieces at Powder Mountain Resort in Utah. Beck mentions that he often walks an estimated 5,000 steps an hour for up to 10 hours at a time to complete an average piece, but some works can span several days of labor. See photos of his latest pieces here. (via Colossal Submissions)

In his series of drawings titled Each Line One Breath, Netherlands-based artist John Franzen creates textured drawings reminiscent of wrinkled fabric or waves of water by drawing tediously placed rows of lines with black ink. The artist begins by drawing a single vertical line on the far side of a canvas but on subsequent lines allows for various imperfections to become amplified or suppressed as he continues, line after line. The process, which might look maddening, actually appears to be a sort of meditative effort for Franzen who works with almost robotic precision. Watch the two videos above to see how he works. If you liked this you might also enjoy the work of Tony Orrico. (via Booooooom, Saatchi Online)

Vortograph by Simon Gardiner

October 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The vortograph is an abstract form of photography that creates kaleidoscopic repetitions by photographing objects through a triangular arrangement of three mirrors. The process dates back to the work of Alvin Langdon Coburn who is credited for inventing the method in 1917. Photographer Simon Gardiner decided to give it a try and created this stunning, Inception-esque urban vortex. More like this, please. See also the music video for Eskmo’s We Got More.

Sculptures Embedded with Intricate Patterns

October 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Several amazing sculptures from Chihyun Shin’s recent exhibition at Gaain Gallery in Seoul. Shin’s objects are created from a delicate layer of interwoven patterns, the shark appears to be embedded with a tightly-knit school of fish, while the chicken, rabbit and person seem to be made of flowers and other plants. I was unable to reliably translate much more from the Korean sites I found these on, so head over to Art Hub and Dinonabi to see more.

Seung Hoon Park’s Woven Photography

(click for detail)

New works from South Korean photographer Seung Hoon Park as part of his ongoing series TEXTUS. Park uses a process to overlay or weave together film strips, however this appears to be a single print, so I’m unsure of how he’s making these. My assumption is that it’s not digital, but I could be wrong. Anybody venture a guess of how these are made? See more of his work at Sarah Lee Artworks

São Paulo based architect and artist Lucas Simões has just uploaded a number of his signature fragmented geometric portraits cut from ten layers of photographs. I simply never get tired of seeing new work from him.

Human Bird

As part of the Edinburgh College of Art degree show this week, Gareth Wynne Fitzpatrick suspended himself from a gallery ceiling and set forth on weaving an enormous birds nest, entitled We’ve a man nest. Say what you will about the meaning or purpose, but the man has some patience. (thnx, nate!)
