Binary Prints Appear Wildly Different at Day or Night

Alex Trochut Binary Prints header

When we arrive in a new place at night, the world looks different. Colors – if we see any – are muted, and dark shapes dominate a landscape difficult to accurately decipher. When the morning comes and we see the same place again, it can appear completely different. Colors invisible in the night now appear bright or even florescent. Objects hidden in shadow reveal themselves. Why bring this all up? Because this new series of posters from Alex Trochut, called Binary Prints, turns the whole light/dark concept on its head, revealing far more at night than during daylight hours. [Read more...]

Monolithic Typography in Vintage Collage Worlds

Wednesday 05.29.2013 , Posted by

In Space Relationship, huge typographical forms rise from the grounds of vintage structures, dwarfing often famous locations with bold and mysterious messages: INTERVAL, LARGE, FRONT, DISCONTINUITY. The scenes themselves blend together imagery from vintage postcards and photography into a collage of impossibly scaled worlds – bridges, mountains, boats and rivers are all dwarfed by ornate victorian ceilings which tower above the foreground, enclosing the scene with a grandeur more architectural than natural. These infinitely explorable images are the work of French illustrator and graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal aka Rétrofuturs. [Read more...]

Remember the days when your status was measured by which pack of Crayolas your mom sent you to school with? If you were lucky enough to have the 64 pack with the sharpener in the back, then this series of crayon sculptures will take you back to the good ol’ days. Vietnamese artist Diem Chau has carved out the entire alphabet along with a corresponding animal for each letter into Crayolas for a colorful collection that’s more fun than a brand new coloring book! A for aardvark, B for boy, C for cat, D for dove, E for elephant, and F for frog… [Read more...]

Massive Ice Typography With A Message

Friday 03.22.2013 , Posted by

Environmental artist Nicole Dextras creates larger than life installations with a message to share, but the message only lasts as long as the weather permits. For her series Signs of Change, Dextras used wooden forms to create ice words that ranged from 18inches to 8 feet tall and placed them in various locations throughout Canada from the highly trafficked metropolis of Toronto to the pristine corners of the Yukon. The angle from which they are viewed as well as how far along they are in the melting process determine how a person might interpret them. She uses coloring in some of the sculptures to make them stand out more and make sure her message gets noticed and takes photographs and time lapse videos to record their life and eventual death. The medium of ice shows the transient nature of all things. [Read more...]
