Holographic Sculptures- A Family of Light Beings

Tuesday 04.30.2013 , Posted by

Roseline de Thélin 1

Inspired by astronomy, quantum physics, scientific theories, and the expansion of consciousness, Roseline de Thélin has been creating art with light for over 15 years. She uses scientific properties of light such as reflection, refraction, conduction, transparency, and refraction to create unique sculptures and installations. This series, called “The Homos Luminosos”, features a family of light beings that represent life, illusion, and mankind’s evolution. She came up with an original technique for using fiber optics, creating large light pieces by edging the fibers. The holographic images seem like they are straight out of a science fiction movie.

New Photographs from Inside North Korea

Pitalev

With the escalation of tensions between the United States and North Korea, a highly intense geopolitical standoff has gripped the attention of the world and centered the focus of several photo journalists on North Korea. Isolated, reclusive, and highly militarized, the mystery and intrigue of North Korea rises due to the highly controlled, censored images that are typically released. Amidst the threats of a nuclear strike, the U.S. focuses their attention on the ruling party and leaders of the North Korean military. [Read more…]

Wild Animals Call the Urban Jungle Their Home

Nick Pedersen Migration 2

We covered Nick Pedersen before when he created a wildly verdant, jungle-like vision of the post-apocalyptic future. In those scenes, wild men eked out their existence in cities long ago abandoned by their massive populations – now overgrown by plant life, they were suitable even for hunting. The Philadelphia based artist has now turned his talents toward creating a vision of our current time, yet still with his focus on themes of ecology and the preservation of the environment.

Gjoen Contemplates Beauty, Fragility and Strength

Magnus Gjeon Art header

What makes an object beautiful? Is it simply a case of the form, its hues and the patterns involved; or is there something deeper? Magnus Gjoen helps us reassess our preconceived ideas about this concept by combining what most would see as highly dissimilar objects. Many of his digital works combine classic paintings or prints with unfriendly forms – like insects and guns for example. In doing so, we are forced to contemplate these forms and images anew.

What’s Your Secret? Candy Chang Gets Confessions

Candy Chang Confessions 4

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… and in the case of Candy Chang’s cathartic exhibition, those things stay there in the form of anonymous hand written sentences on squares of wood. Inspired by the likes of PostSecret, Shinto shrine prayer walls and the catholic church, “Confessions” was an event which encouraged viewers to enter private booths and write their secret on a veneer of wood. The collected words were then beautifully hung around the walls of the exhibition for all to observe and contemplate. [Read more…]

Somewhere between the real world and our daydreams lies Bas Waijers’ Bedoodled series. The Brooklyn-based graphic designer, originally from the Netherlands, enhances his city photography with adorable little characters doodled in blue ink. From Clifford sized pets napping over an abandoned building, to monster bees buzzing above the trash cans, to shy guys hiding in the vents and rusted corners, Waijers brings ordinary photos into a fun, fantasy land. With his sketchbook in hand, as he goes about his life in NYC, Waijers imagines more lively versions of the reality before him and shares his fun, creative visions by sketching them out and inserting them into the original setting.

Movies in Color: Film Stills Broken Down by Color

Scarface

If you love data, pantone, and cinematography, then you will love this color analysis by Roxy Radulescu. The LA-based graphic designer originally from Illinois was inspired to look into cinematographic color choice when she was watching Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes. She selected a still and used a color generator in Photoshop to get the basic swatch ranges, then she composed the general color palette of the most prominent colors in the still. She has continued to use this process on some of the most popular films in cinema history, choosing a theme each week. This past week she took requests, but before that she had Scorsese, Hitchcock, Kubrick, and Tarantino week. With so many amazing films out there, Radulescu will not be running out of content anytime soon to keep this Tumblr going strong! [Read more…]
