Alessandro Lupi’s Blacklight Bodies

Artist Alessandro Lupi seems to capture ghosts in his eerie sculptures.  Lupi begins with simple thread to create his artwork.  He paints each strand one at a time with fluorescent paint.  The threads are then arranged and lit with black lights.  Lupi often arranges the thread in the form of a figure – a person that at once seems to inhabit a space and in the process of disappearing.  He calls his work ‘Fluorescent Densities’.  The designation alludes to the way he uses his medium to “investigate” and play with light and space.

Illustrating With Words: Luke Lucas’ Typography

LucasTypography3

LucasTypography5 LucasTactileTypography

You may have already seen Luke Lucas’ typography work, but weren’t aware of it; he’s created designs for companies like Target, Nestlé, The New York Times, and Barnes & Noble. He’s also done work for exhibitions and creates his own fonts. Some of the more humorous and elaborate text designs are reminiscent of Wayne White’s word paintings. Of his work, Lucas writes, “I love that the same word, passage or even letter can be treated in bunch of different ways and embody entirely different meanings… That and through subtleties like a slight shift in line weight, the elongation of a tail or the arc you use, a letter can go from contemporary to traditional or happy to sad in a single stroke…”

Giants Carrying Power Lines from Choi + Shine

Choi and Shine Architecture4

These images are from the design studio of the architecture and design firm Choi + Shine.  The concept is to transform simple power line pylons into massive sculptures.  The firm says, “Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, we have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable.”  The figures would be designed to interact with their function as well as the landscape.  Some figures would appear to be climbing up hill.  Others would crouch for increased strength as if to bear the weight of the wires on their shoulders.  All would serve to enhance the landscape while also serving a utilitarian purpose.

Image Projection from Danish Street Artist Armsrock

Let’s check in with Danish artist Asbjørn Skou (aka Armsrock), who’s been doing, for a minute now, large scale drawings of downtrodden figures and pasting them on the street. Lately, in addition to continuing his drawing pursuits, he’s been working a lot with image projection. He first used the technique to effectively “paste” his figures onto buildings with light. These days he’s evolved into a slightly more abstract methodology, inserting doors and entryways where blank walls used to be, and conjuring stalactite-filled caves. Armsrock’s always had a knack for depicting the struggles of the working class and the neglected. Nice to see him expanding his reach with this new work without abandoning the drawings.
