extreme behavior has its basis in pathological psychology
extreme self-consciousness leads to perversion
faithfulness is a social not a biological law
fake or real indifference is a powerful personal weapon
fathers often use too much force
fear is the greatest incapacitator
freedom is a luxury not a necessity
giving free rein to your emotions is an honest way to live
go all out in romance and let the chips fall where they may
going with the flow is soothing but risky
good deeds eventually are rewarded
government is a burden on the people
grass roots agitation is the only hope
guilt and self-laceration are indulgences”

Brand Spirit

Brand Spirit: every day for 100 days, I will paint one branded object white, removing all visual branding, reducing the object to its purest form. I can purchase each object for less than $10, it can be something I own, something another person gives me, or something I find! “

3D artworks // Takanori Aiba

expanding his range through his life as a freelance maze illustrator, Takanori Aiba’s further permutation move was as concept maker and art director for architectural spaces. Let’s get more into a weird[naah] 3Dstyle of work – by his latest exhibition, under the name

“Adventures of the Eyes” 

”Aiba’s works make use of an aerial perspective, which like the diagram for a maze[wikimaze], shows the whole from above (macro view) while including minute details (micro view).”

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.
