Rosa Verloop’s Eerie Nylon Sculptures Of The Human Form

verloopsculpture7 verloopsculpture verloopsculpture3

Rosa Verloop creates sculptures out of nylons. Eerie and captivating these malleable forms capture the density and lumpiness of a fleshy existence. They’re soft and cuddly and evoke a tangibility. These malformed sculptures speak to bodily fear and vulnerability and what we perceive as normal and abnormal. Nylons are supposed to cover skin, creating a smoothness that Verloop undermines by twisting and stuffing these nylons into bulky lumps.

I absolutely love the stuff illustrator and designer Mike Lythgoe is making; it’s lavish and dreamy and somehow clean and meticulous at the same time.

Sophia Chang’s Architectural Boundary Blending Installation ‘Suspense’

The work of architect and designer Sophia Chang, Suspense is a site-specific installation that blends the inner and outer environments of a gallery space. A recent graduate with distinction at Harvard Graduate School of Design, Chang created Suspense at Invivia Gallery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

By pulling large sheets of Lycra between rectangular frames, her work creates an interactive, suspended environment which both blurs yet highlights the building’s pre-existing architectural features. Some rooms are completely explorable, while others remain visible yet restricted by the installation. Says Chang, “The whole piece holds itself in shape under the tensile forces of being stretched without any extra pneumatic input – except perhaps the breeze flowing in and out of the two doors!” (via designboom)

Amnesty International Campaign Depicts Torture And Injustice Created Out of Candles

Antoine Magnien of French design agency Mugshot has created a beautiful and poignant series of images for Amnesty International‘s new ad campaign. Rendered completely in 3D, the campaign depicts the horrific scenes of Lynchings, killings, and injustice that Amnesty International fights against out of candles (Amnesties logo). The result is a powerful reminder that we have to keep educating, fighting, and protesting to create a safer, more just world. (via)

Inka Järvinen is an illustrator/designer from Helsinki.  Järvinen works mostly in detailed collage’s, her output is dark, as she draws inspiration from the old sci-fi aesthetic of the future in the 1960’s and 1970’s. I love her illustrations and simple use of color.
