The Light Sculpture Of Joanie Lemercier

The work of artist Joanie Lemercier resembles Tron type imagery that has come to life.  This piece’s materials, however, are really rather simple: paper and light.  Lemercier folds paper into variously sized pyramids which are then arranged as a composition on the wall.  The composition is visually mapped and a light projection is layered onto the installation.  The result is a futuristic glowing geometric pattern.  Lemercier is a member of AntiVJ – a “visual label”, a collective of artists that focus on light and perception in regards to art.  If you enjoy the work of Joanie Lemercier, check out the work of fellow member Olivier Ratsi.

These are much more than simple balloon animals.  Jason Hackenwerth‘s creations float like giant swimming organisms.  His newest creature, Pisces, which recently debuted at the Edinburgh International Science festival is particularly massive.  Pisces is built of thousands of balloons blown up and tied together.  It took three of members of the festival six days to blow up all of the balloons for the 40 foot structure.  The piece now hangs in the Grand Gallery of the National Museum of Scotland through April 14, 2013.

Russian graphic designer and artist Yulia Brodskaya draws with paper instead of on it.  Her highly detailed pieces are constructed of rolled, folded, and carefully placed strips of color paper.  The intricate curls of paper are intriguing in themselves while creating a larger image – it took me a moment to realize what I saw in the top image.  Brodskaya’s process and style has garnered her some serious attention.  Her long client list includes companies such as Starbucks, Anthropologie, Penguin Press, and HOW Magazine.

Outmane Amahou’s Minimalist Art Movement Posters

DADAISM POP-ART

SURREALISM2

Designer Outmane Amahou‘s posters seem to need very few words accompanying them.  This series is appropriately called Minimalist Art Movement Posters.  Amahou glides through art history with a minimalist design style.  Icons of art history’s various movements and schools stand elegantly alone at the center of each poster.  Warhol’s soup can, Magrite’s pipe, Duchamp’s urinal all act as familiar symbols of their respective styles.

Anastasia Mastrakouli’s Alphabet Made Out Of Naked Bodies

Anastasia Mastrakouli design11 Anastasia Mastrakouli design10 Anastasia Mastrakouli design9

You’ve likely already noticed: this isn’t your typical font.  Instead of using pixels or vectors, photographer Anastasia Mastrakouli uses her own body to create a steamy alphabet (pardon the pun).  Mastrakoukli positions herself behind wet glass partly hidden as if in a shower.  She emphasizes certain parts of her body, and in turn certain parts of letters, by placing herself closer to the glass.  The result is an eye-catching font – one in which the medium may grab more attention the the message it spells.  Check out her website to see the rest of the alphabet.

Getting Lost On The Internet With “I’m Google”

The project I’m Google from artist Dina Kelberman is strangely and hypnotically familiar. You’ve likely searched one topic on Wikipedia or Google that set off a long chain of searches each slightly related to the one preceding it.  Hours later you’re nowhere near you began.  In a way I’m Google is a visual representation of this in the form of a tumblog.  Countless seemingly mundane photographs slowly transform in color, composition, content.  However, slight changes over time build large ones; balloons slowly become crater lakes.  It’s a familiar journey, and I’m Google is a fascinating visualization of it.  [via]

The 3D Graffiti Of Peeta

Peeta street art1

The murals of graffiti artist Peeta definitely, and nearly literally, stand out.  Peeta uses a a familiar style peculiar to street art murals and tags.  However, using careful perspective and shading, he’s able to create the illusion of depth.  His work seems to twist and wind just above the wall’s surface.  While Peeta does also create sculptural versions of his street art inspired work, the images featured here are entirely two dimensional.  [via]
