Iris van Herpen

Iris Van Herpen

 

We usually don’t post about emerging fashion designers, but Iris van Herpen is definitely an exception to this rule. Her designs, handmade with lace, leather, wire gauze, and gold brass, are sculptural masterpieces! Excellently crafted and textured, her designs are fierce, futuristic, and feminine (yay, alliteration!). The Dutch fashion designer only graduated from the ARTEZ School of Arts in Arnhem in 2006, but her unique, avant-garde fashions are already being showcased at Amsterdam’s International Fashion Week!

Leonardo Ulian’s Technological Mandalas Signify Worship of Technology

technological-mandala-30_20131006_1468816981 technological-mandala-17_close_up_20130924_2059965689 technological_mandala_38_close_up_20130922_1272465802mandala_06_1_20130805_1735325114

Artist Leonardo Ulian offers another interpretation of  the mandala with his assemblages of electronic components, copper wire, and more. The intricate, finely detailed works radiate the innards of what makes technology tick. Ulian crafts smaller geometric patterns within a larger, more general shape that become more impressive once you see close up shots of his handiwork.

The mandala is typically a spiritual symbol that is often destroyed after its created (like the ones created from sand). This is a practice that establishes a sacred space, which is Ulian’s technological collage can be a metaphor for. Circuit boards, computer chips, and wire connectors have not only transformed the way we live, but the way in which we see the world. The artist could be saying that our dependency on it is akin to the worshiping of a larger being. (Via The Inspiration Provider)

Mircea Cantor’s Sculptures Are made out of Everything from Corn On The Cob To Aluminum Cans

 

Romanian Sculptor Mircea Cantor is all over the map as far as media goes. The artist has worked with everything from aluminum cans to model airplanes (see both images above). He’s even done some “finger painting”. But what seemingly remains a constant throughout all of his work is a disdain for doing what’s been done before. Check out more images of his sculpture after the jump, including corn on the cob installation and fishing hook fighter jets. Cantor is also a co-editor of VERSION magazine. (via)

Rebecca Louise Law Installs 16,000 Flowers In The Lobby Of A Manhattan Skyscraper Brings In A Little Spring

Now that we’re in the dead of winter, Rebecca Louise Law’s installation “Outside In” of 16,000 flowers in the lobby of a Manhattan skyscraper is soundly appropriate. The British artist who grew up in the English countryside says she wanted to create a site-specific work which would give city folk a little breather from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Her installation of 16,000 hanging flowers does the trick. When initially installed the fresh flowers gave the lobby an outdoorsy spring like smell. As the days pass and the flowers dry, the lobby at 1515 Broadway in New York’s Times Square will become a potpourri scent tank.

Some of the specimens used in the installation include roses, chrysanthemums, carnations and baby’s breath. Hung upside down, the different shapes and colors of the flowers resemble paint marks floating in thin air. In some instances,  the entire installation looks like a wonderful abstract painting.

Law is known for her flower installations around the world. Some of her more intriguing projects have been “The Hated Flower” UK where she used carnations and chrysanthemums, “Bulbs” UK and “The Grecian Garden” Greece which fused 10,000 plants, herbs and cut flowers of over 27 varieties. She also did a project using 1500 apples methodically placed throughout Fulham Palace Chapel in London. (via the creatorsproject.vice.com)
