We posted up the amazing work of light painting artist and animator Darren Pearson before (here). He has since released a new animation video entitled “Light Goes On” which consists of a light painted skeleton skateboarding around various locations and busting some gnarly tricks throughout the corpse’s journey. See some great images and video after the click.
Stefanie Herr’s creates beautiful topographic artworks, which are said to be inspired by maps. She says that when traveling they facilitate navigation and orientation, and drawings by cartographers are the starting point of her practice. To create these sculptures, images are printed on photographic paper, mounted on matboard, hand meticulously cut into tiny pieces and assembled.
Photographer David Emmite snaps pictures of incredible still life scenarios, however, these tend to be a different kind. The plate of spaghetti and meatballs is supplemented with yarn and knitting needles; a thick steak is cut directly from the flesh of a table, finely marbled by wood grain. Emmite’s work displays a whimsical and surreal nature to everyday objects and situations.
