Christopher Locke’s Heartless Machines

Christopher Locke‘s sculptures combine meticulous craftsmanship and a nerdy sense of humor. My favorites are his spiders made from scissors confiscated by airport security.

Scanner Glitch Photography from Federico Ferrari

federico ferrari photography9 federico ferrari photography2

The intentional glitchiness of the photography of Federico Ferrari is at once familiar and surprising.  This series appears to be still life photography interrupted by a scanner malfunction.  A section of each image is dragged across the plane reducing it to simple lines of color.  Small pieces of photographs are severely exaggerated in size.  It abstracts otherwise benign photographs and plays with the viewer’s perception of a simple scene scene.

Degenerate Art Ensemble

Degenerate Art Ensemble is a musically hyper-experimental performance group comprised of a dance company, punk/jazz band, a 45 piece orchestra. I found out about them first through their album Cuckoo Crow. Listening to it makes me feel really alive and dead and kind of confused and disgusted with myself as a fleshly vessel. It also made me want to turn off the lights in my room and just start writhing for no reason (which I have to admit that I did). Check out a sample of their song Checkersplitter on Youtube. They’re awesome!

PAA JOE’s Sculpted Coffins

Paa Joe’s sculpted coffins blur the line between art and craft. Each work is carefully constructed to reflect the ambition or the trade of the person for whom it was made. They are not dead things but are instead a manifestation of and indeed an affirmation of life. The works are wholly African and are a contemporary embodiment of traditional tribal burial rituals and art practice. They link back to pre-colonial West African sculpture but also recall the pomp and extravagance of ancient Egyptian royal tombs.

Simin Qiu Reimagines The Water Faucet With A Groundbreaking And Beautiful Design That Conserves Water

A London Royal College Of Art student named Simin Qiu has designed a water faucet that will dazzle you in more ways than one. By placing specific grooves inside a faucet’s pipe he not only conserves one of the world’s most precious commodities but also manipulates it to pour out in beautiful lattice-like patterns. The project was conceived by Qiu in an attempt to make water use in the home not only more aesthetically enjoyable but also user and conservatively sound as well. The end result not only makes the water look more interesting but it also comes out in a gentler, fresher way from the pipe.
For his efforts, Qiu won the 2014 IF Student award. The prize is awarded annually to students or recent University graduates in 7 design categories including product, packaging, photography and fashion to name a few. It holds not only prestige but awards the winner a generous 30,000 euros in prize money.
The official name of Qiu’s product is “The Swirl Faucet” and in the last week or so word of it has gone viral on several prominent design blogs. (via boredpanda)

Here’s a quirky personal project from the mind of Jorge López Navarrete – “two different people each time -always unknown for me- perform exactly the same conversation.” Can someone explain to me the significance of the 3-D glasses?
