Diary Of A Madman…. Kyle Thomas

Three months ago we approached long time B/D contributor Kyle Thomas to hand draw every single copy (1,500 total) of Beautiful/Decay’s Book: 1. Much to our surprise, Kyle quickly agreed and simply said “Bring it on!”

Last night at 6pm, we received the shipment of books and Kyle began the monumental task of creating 1,500 distinct works of art. The video above documents his stream of conscious supernatural drawing style. He’s currently holed up in the Beautiful/Decay offices drawing non stop during the whole work day! Based on his current pace he will complete all the covers by Tuesday July 14th, which is also the cut off date to reserve your copy. So make sure to subscribe today to ensure you get a copy of this one of a kind book.

Producer Peter Chinn used a combination of dimensional ultrasound scans, tiny cameras and computer graphics to create these photographs of baby animals.  Chinn made the images for a National Geographic documentary called Extraordinary Animals in the Wombwhich tracked the process of growth, from conception to birth.

Aside from being scientifically interesting, these images are visually engaging.  We (or at least I) rarely imagine what different animals look like inside the womb, and beyond being informative Chinn’s photographs are actually kind of beautiful (if you don’t over analyze the blood and guts).  Except for the shark, that one is still kind of scary.  (via viralnova)

Collages That Technically Balance Disparate Imageries

strngillustration7 strngillustration10 strngillustration12

The artist known only as strng on Flickr creates technically impressive and visually compelling collages. He combines imagery from human, animal, natural, and mechanical worlds into one image. Elements that don’t seem to have much in common become a part of each other, and strng illustrates these startling images in such a way as for them to appear natural or ordinary. Part of this involves strng’s aesthetic, which is resonant with the pages of anatomy and biology textbooks.

Letha Wilson: Reclaim Drywall!

 

 

Fountain is a sculpture made by Letha Wilson using drywall and wood reclaimed from art gallery walls, and an artist’s studio walls. In this piece the form of a classical water fountain is invoked, typically present in a garden or entryway as a symbol of the utopian ideal. Walls and building materials previously used to house artworks, complete with paint stains and remnants of their past life, are re-newed into this functional water fountain. The drywall materials will gradually deteriorate away over the course of the exhibition as the paper and rock-based materials are worn down by constantly moving water.

Massive Marionettes in Germany celebrate 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Massive Marionettes in Germany celebrate 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin WallMassive Marionettes in Germany celebrate 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Earlier last week, 1.5 million people filled the streets of Berlin, Germany to watch a several-day performance by France’s Royal de Luxe street theatre company titled “The Berlin Reunion”. Part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Reunion show featured two massive marionettes, the Big Giant, a deep-sea diver, and his niece, the Little Giantess. The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by “land and sea monsters”. The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult – but successful – expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart. Go take a look at the pictures on boston.com in all their large-sized glory. There were so many amazing ones I didn’t know which ones to post!
