This has to be the coolest art piece that I’ve seen in a while. When I first saw Li Hongbo’s moveable paper sculptures online earlier this year, I thought it was totally altered by computers or something. It just seemed too fluid and bizarre looking to be, well, paper. Here’s a video of his sculptures shot in super slow-mo. Sit back and prepared to be amazed and mesmerized by stacks of paper!
These are amazing paper sculpture pieces (yes, paper! can you believe it?!) by Noriko Ambe. You should really check out her other works of art, they will blow your mind! You have to know the material before you can alter it.
This is one of the best films I’ve seen in a while on Independent Lens! I was completely glued to the television watching Between The Folds. You can and must watch it online here. It’s truly amazing. If my rambling words weren’t enough to convince you to see this, here’s the trailer that surely will, I hope!
What a fun way to break out of the monotony of parallel horizontal lines that invade the everyday notebook. Found here.
This is a very intriguing idea. I like the concept that thousands of ideas are coming together in one spot from around the world for the public to view. Basically, the idea is, anyone can sign up, pay $25 and in return you will receive a sketchbook. You can pick your own theme, there are some fun options to choose from like I’m a scavenger, Dirigibles and Submersibles, Help! and Things that changed other things. Or, you can leave it to chance and have a theme assigned to you. Once you fill up the sketchbook, send it back and it will tour for a bit, eventually it will end up in a permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library. Below are some images from past sketchbooks. Sweet! Find out more about The Sketchbook Project here.
I received Anthropologie’s latest and greatest catalog in the mail yesterday, and it is so cool. I am completely in love with how they display their jewelry. Absolutely gorgeous.
