Her website boasts a collection of “photographs, mental notes and observations on timing, space, memory, people and some things in between.” Hollero’s photographs portray movement and, just as fluidly and richly, the sounds associated with the particular space; they put your senses to work! Kind of like the link between smell and memory.

Kamolpan Chotvichai’s Shredded Self-Portraits Produce The Illusion Of Glitchy Dissolution

chotvichai14 chotvichai6 chotvichai3 chotvichai2

Kamolpan Chotvichai explores the limitations of paper by carefully hand-cutting portraits of herself and rendering an effect of dissolution based on the Buddha’s teaching on anatta (no self). Parts of Chotvichai’s human form appear warped and melted, almost glitchy, as if they are about to disintegrate; the artist’s careful attention to the direction and shape of her cuts produces an elegant illusory effect. Chotvichai explains,

One’s adhering to something can cause the greatest misery in life especially being attached to self-existing. The idea of this self-existing is actually self-formed and leads to variety of emotions. The temper, the mind and the body altogether gradually form the idea of being alive but when putting into consideration, without any substance, it is merely the thought that we think we are existing…The way I create my work is to set consciousness and concentration by slitting and cutting on the portrait of myself which is considered to be the unconditional action of effort and attempt. This action is therefore to destroy and create the emptiness which will lead to the stage of naught.

Chotvichai was born, raised, and educated in Bangkok, where she currently resides. (via my amp goes to 11)

Holton Rower’s Poured Paintings

I’m more interested in Holton Rower’s process of creating these abstract paintings than the final result. Sure the end result is beautiful but you’ll see what I mean once you watch the process video after the jump. It’s a simple technique that packs a lot of punch!

Kama Sutra

Cuban artist Erik Ravelo is known for his ability to confront the difficult and taboo directly by presenting fearless, visually provocative work (previously featured for his Los Intocables, or The Untouchables, series here). Lana Sutra (combining the Spanish word ‘Lana’ meaning ‘Wool’ and ‘Sutra’, which means the thread which connects us) takes the idea of these strings – love, humanity, sexuality – and displays them literally, binding human forms together in intense colored poses. “I’m a human being and I don’t believe in borders. I think the world belongs to everyone born on Earth. This is my planet, our planet. No man is an island. Yes, I was born on Cuba but, above all, I was born on Planet Earth. I like to think that Lana Sutra talks about universal love which cancels diversity.”

Created during his residency at Italian communication research and artistic grant center Fabrica (connected with clothing brand United Colors of Benneton), Ravelo began Lana Sutra by guiding models to pose together, and then casting these poses in plaster. The plaster mannequins were then covered in yarn (in the fall colors of the Benneton line), with separate colored threads from each mannequin being bound together in Kama Sutra positions. Bursting with color, the fifteen installations of present a completely unbiased version of humanity, no longer separated by race, religion, creed or sexuality, and merely bound by our shared humanity.

Mr.Div’s Mesmerizing GIFs

Matthew DiVito, also known as mr. div, is a motion graphics designer and aspiring game developer.  Using a cocktail of software DiVito produces these hypnotic gif images.  A popular file type in the 1990’s, gifs are experiencing a resurgence in popularity.  DiVito’s images certainly retain a retro sensibility.  However, gone are the blocky appearance and wonky movement typical of the first wave of gifs.  His work has a certain cosmic precision and elegance making each file slightly mesmerizing.

Life Size Submarine Emerges From The Ground In Milan’s City Streets

submarine-emerges-in-milan

It’s not everyday that you come across a giant submarine surfacing through the historic city streets of Milan. No this isn’t some bizarre new piece of technology gone wrong but in fact an incredibly elaborate installation that’s part of an elaborate marketing campaign imagined by advertising agency M&C Saatchi Milano for insurance group Europ Assistance IT as part of a new campaign called “Protect Your Life” which promotes the importance of safeguarding your possessions through insurance. This may seem a bit over the top to promote something as dull as insurance but this imaginative stunt surely stopped everyone in their tracks as they rushed through the city to work.

The installation also included a large scale performance complete with fireman and police officers rescuing the crew of the submarine. Watch footage from the performance in the short video above. (via designboom)
