Black Hole is a project by Stockholm-based artist, Orestes Grediaga. A feeling of “void” and “emptiness” had struck the artist almost instantly – a feeling he had yet to experience. That day, the artist was drawn to a large piece of paper, on which he drew a black hole. “When it was dry, it seemed to absorb all of me as I looked at it. Inside, there were no thoughts nor feelings, no memories, no physicality, nothing. It was like a black hole. At that moment a sense of abiding calm came over me from inside, from the very same place this enigmatic void was coming from.” – Orestes Grediaga
I’m absolutely loving Nike Savvas’ brilliant installation Atomic: Full Of Love, Full Of Love which is created with thousands of suspended
bouncy balls organized in a hyperspectrum of colors. Created in 2005 this piece is a rainbow-brite labryinth of color that I’d love to get lost in for hours and hours. (via colosal & jobs wife)
Nicolas Deshayes lives and works in France. He utilizes vacuum-formed plastic, anodized aluminum, and polystyrene to create textured abstractions. His compositions remain static until an area is covered in the formed plastic, the work then resembles flowing color fields. Like glimpses into another dimension his sculptures ebb and flow as colors swirl around the viewer.
I’ve been in need of some inspiration and this morning it came by way of designer Chris Nixon, who, although still only a student at John Moores University in Liverpool, develops his pieces through in-depth conceptual processes; analyzing the content thoroughly and developing forms that create strong and lasting impressions. Although he is certainly adept at taking on just about any objective, its Chris’s work with type – in particular, creating experimental type-forms – that truly captured my attention… and delivered that much needed inspiration!
