Urban Transformations \\ Janet Echelman

Hola!

on the go – to the point

Influenced through her life, todays artist introduce us to her unique style which is consisted from the combination of modern technology with ancient craft.

 Defining her work,  Janet Echelman reshapes urban airspace with monumental, fluidly moving sculpture that responds to environmental forces including wind, water, and sunlight.

Using nets she introduced a new approach to sculpture generating a way to create volumetric form without heavy, solid materials.

yo..new artist discovery

FG on the go

~~

Keita Sagaki, todays artist, has a unique point of view for his drawings , no judgements made (even if we should), having in mind that the detailing of his work is exceptional. Short personal statement from his point of view [make your own adjustments]:

All things are composed of whole and part. Let’s broaden your horizons. the concept of “ whole and part” is not fixed. it’s in flux. If we interpret from a different viewpoint, the wholeness which we defined is converted into the partialness. Domain in the relations of both, it never ends. The concept of my creation is the relations of borderless “whole and part”. As I draw a picture in this concept, I want to express conflict and undulation from relations of “whole and part”, cannot be measured in addition and subtraction (The whole in the grand total of the part. and the Part by the whole division)

Hey! if you think you are not being served what you truly deserve from life, taking a step forward and two back every single time..  WRONG PLACE.  dnt panic here is the WAY OUT

zup? FG playground for now, with real examples of hardcore locations of our world, that happen to be from abnormal to strange and back, making science-fiction seem ordinary..

Izu Islands – Japan

Off the coast of Japan lies a series of volcanic islands. Due to the air being full of sulphur, they were evacuated as recently as 2000. However, citizens moved back, despite having to wear gas masks for most of their day. This is mainly due to a pension provided by scientists studying the debilitating effects of the environment.

Neft Daşları, Azerbaijan

Neft Daslari is a functional city built 34 miles from the nearest shore. Located in Azerbaijan, the town began as an oil platform before growing into the sprawling megaplex it is today.

Thames Town — Shanghai, China

Nestled near Shanghai, China, is a quaint-yet-fully-functional re-creation of a classic English market town. This is just the start, as plans call for similar towns themed after Sweden, Italy, Holland, German, traditional Chinese, Spain, the United States and an ecologically-themed town.

Kowloon Walled City — Hong Kong

Due to an invasion by squatters, lawmakers turned a blind eye to this section of China from 1947 until 1973. Notorious for being completely run by gangs, the lack of building codes created haphazard structures never seen before. The sun never touched many of the narrow streets until the city was demolished in 1994. This was as close to lawlessness as non-celebrities could ever get.

Linfen, China

Originally nicknamed “the modern fruit and flower town,” this Chinese city was home to the worst pollution of any metropolis on Earth. Before reform, belching coal plants continuously choked out the sun and citizens often had difficulty seeing their own hands. A crackdown on pollution and a switch to natural gas has resulted in dramatic improvements to air quality, which means citizens no longer have to wear black every day.

Manshiyat Naser — Cairo, Egypt

On the edge of Cairo lies a community whose entire economic system centers around collecting and sorting garbage. The bustling area has shops, houses and even the largest church in the Middle East. We’re also guessing it probably has some of the largest homemade forts in the Middle East, too.

Supercomputing Center — Barcelona , Spain

Inside a spectacular Spanish church sits an enormous glass box. Inside that glass box is one of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The public research center provides invaluable data to the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. [Near future plans –> private parties – Godlike]
