Alex Varanese- Bent Curcuit Type

Alex Varanese illustration

Typographer and illustrator Alex Varanese combines 3d techniques with traditional print design techniques in circuit bent type series of illustrations. I like the consistent and specific use of red in all of Alex’s work. Im not sure what you would call the shade but it’s an iconic palate that’s modern and vintage at the same time.  Alex also has a nice array of custom type on his site. More images after the jump.

Adam gondek collage

Keeping with my collage theme for today I present the work of Chicago based artist Adam Gondek. Am I crazy or do some of these have a Richard Prince feel to them? Maybe it’s just the naked ladies.

Mark Wagner’s Rich Collaged World

Mark Wagner’s money collages are surreal, bizarre, and extremely intriguing. I’ve seen hundreds of artists use currency in their art over the years but Mark’s work pushes the technique to new limits. More images after the jump.

Robert William Overweg’s Virtual photographs

Robert William Overweg's virtual photographs

Description of Robert William Overweg’s “Documenting Current Spaces” series:

I have been photographing virtual environments since the end of 2007.

I felt a need to document these worlds because I see them as the new public spaces. I was grasped by their perfect beauty, most of the time copying our own real world. But with constant highlights of beauty. These documentary photographs evolved into a journey of research and questioning.

Is there a difference between a photograph of a simulated object and a photograph of the object taken in real life. Another interesting question, when does popular culture leave the copyright protected arena and become public domain? Aren’t captured experiences instantly the property of the viewer/capturer?

Semiconductor Video- Black Rain

Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME’s (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission.

Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME’s, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by.

As in Semiconductors previous work ‘Brilliant Noise‘ which looked into the sun, they work with raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption. By embracing the artefacts, calibration and phenomena of the capturing process we are reminded of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.
