Sam Winston VandA 1

Created specifically to participate in the upcoming V&A exhibition ‘Memory Palace’ in London, these fantastic new creations from artist Sam Winston have much thought rising from their sleek surfaces. His body of work features much that reinterprets the written word, making him a perfect fit for the new show that revolves around artistic, graphic and typographic interpretations of a section of a text from author Hari Kunzru written specifically for the multi-artist show. The passage Winston was tasked with interpreting was focused on “mankind’s worship of the periodic table.” To realize his vision, he chose to combine the scientific processes of modern chemistry with the imagery of sacred eastern geometry, realizing them through three fascinating metal panels.

These infinitely explorable images are the work of French illustrator and graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal aka Rétrofuturs. [Read more...]
