Hand Painted Weaponry Dishware By Trevor Jackson

Trevor Jackson‘s ceramic work is deceptively innocent.  Hand painted in blue, hidden behind animals, flowers, and flourishes are deadly weapons.  His work are definitely conversation pieces for an especially hot topic.  While his intentions with the pieces aren’t entirely obvious, the series is clearly political.  Typically utilitarian weapons are presented as garishly decorated and entirely harmless.  Dishware that is often passed down from generation to generation is stylized with politically intense imagery.

If you were similarly a nerd-child, this home library would have been better than any I could conjure.  Architect Moon Hoon designed this extremely family friendly house.  The spaces throughout the house are very versatile with this library being its highlight.  Embedded in the bookshelves is a wooden slide.  Also, the shelves double as tiered seating for the home theater.  Moon Hoon says of the feature:

“The multi-use stair and slide space brings much active energy to the house, not only children, but also grown ups love the slide staircase. An action filled playful house for all ages.” [via]

The Multiple Exposure Portraits of Sara K Byrne

The work of Sara K Byrne is definitely multilayered.  Her images are double exposures – a technique that originated with film cameras.  Basically a segment of film would be exposed to light twice.  The darker areas in the first photograph would record light in the second photograph.  Byrne uses a digital camera, one of a handful of models that can perform the same technique.  In addition to more examples of her work on her website, you’ll find a tutorial on how to recreate the effect.

The Sad Three-Eyed Boy Sculptures Of Seungchun Lim

Korean artist Seungchun Lim creates life-size sculptures.  His work is steeped in narrative, each piece a character.  Seungchun’s sculptures are, in fact, part of a complex story.  The three eyed boy above is born with a hump in his back that turns out to be wings.  Eventually his wings are stolen from him.  Independent of their grand tale, Seungchun’s sculptures still exude an air lonliness and sadness.  His characters wordlessly communicate through their powerful but quiet imagery.

The Polygonal Street Art Of Sy

Sy street art 9Street artist Sy creates cleanly crafted murals.  Rather than a hurriedly executed work, Sy’s pieces appear to be carefully planned to the extent of nearly seeming more at home in Adobe Illustrator than on an alley wall.  Sy clearly references and draws inspiration from 8-bit graphics and the block y polygons of early computer animation.  However, the simplistic graphics style really betray an expert use of light and perspective.  Subtle color shifts and familiar imagery in a surprising context add depth to the murals of Sy.

The Sky Illustrations Of Thomas Lamadieu

While many of us as tourists may walk looking up at the tops of buildings, artist Thomas Lamadieu is looking at the sky.  Lamadieu uses negative space to create playful drawings and illustrations.  Utilizing photographs of a sky squeezed between rooftops, he illustrates within the patches of blue.  The pieces of sky cut out by the buildings are a point of inspiration for Lamadieu culling stories from the shapes he’s dealt.  Rather than being a limit, they become a point of departure.

Classical Photographs of Contemporary “Beauty” (NSFW)

Phillip Toledano photograph1 Phillip Toledano photograph9Phillip Toledano photograph2

In a classical compositional style, Photographer Phillip Toledano‘s series A New Kind of Beauty depicts subjects that have drastically augmented their bodies.  The photographs contrast classical ideas of beauty with the contemporary and nearly obsessive pursuit of it.  A fixation with beauty is ancient, but the images examine it in the light of modern body modification.  Toledano says of the series:

“I’m interested in what we define as beauty, when we choose to create it ourselves.  Beauty has always been a currency, and now that we finally have the technological means to mint our own, what choices do we make?”

Landfill Harmonic And ‘The Recycled Orchestra’

Landfill Harmonic- The world sends us garbage… We send back music. from Landfill Harmonic on Vimeo.

Recycling is a way of life in Cateura, Paraguay.  Many people there earn money by scouring the huge landfill for items that can be recycled.  A certain garbage picker, though, began recycling for much more than money: for the young people in his community.  Nicolás Gómez began creating instruments – violins, cellos, drums, guitars – from the trash he sifted through and gave them to local children.  The idea picked up steam and children’s orchestra known as “The Recycled Orchestra” came to life.  Landfill Harmonic, a documentary on Gómez and the orchestra, is slated to capture the inspirational story.  [via]
