A few invisible sculptures

What are we talking about when we talk about sculpture? New York based photographer Andrea Galvani calls widely accepted definitions of the medium into question. Thus A Few Invisible Sculptures: The Perception of Immateriality provides a sober and insightful reflection on the function of contemporary sculpture, radically extending its boundaries. The work consists of an interdisciplinary body of work including sound sculpture, drawings, text-based works, collages and photographs what the artist describes as an »architecture of the invisible«, a kind of intervention in form of a mobile sculpture.

Flying over the Tulips Fields

Looking at the tulip fields can spring a few surprises, particularly the view from above. Flying over the Tulips Fields by Normann Szkop is the fantastic series about natural colors and man-made patterns. These photos were shot in Anna Paulowna, a town in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland. This brings me to an incredible film project which I had kept around for a while: »Bloemencorso, the annual parade of flowers, takes place in Zundert and features some of the most creative and modern examples of the floral sculpting form you’re likely to see.« Enjoy!

James Jirat Patradoon (born 1985) is an Australian Illustrator. »At the end of August 2012 he had a one night only exhibition at The Tate in Glebe showcasing a bunch of work he made whilst procrastinating other work. It was made up of animated gifs displayed on old CRT televisions, digitally printed flags, and a sculpture featuring a four armed customised biker jacket. Inspired by the fashion and costume of black metal music, gangster rap, professional wrestling, sci-fi films, and superheroes, James‘ work is an irreverent take on the stoic nature of macho pop culture.«

Wave

Adam Niklewicz loves the humorous irritation, a piece of sausage that is shaped into the sign of infinity as well as an orange oil paint on a piece of bread or a curling wave that gathers in the midst of a calm carpet ready to break.
