Kyle Thompson

by Xavier Speeleveld

Kyle Thompson is a 21 year old photographer originally from Chicago. He began taking photographs at the age of nineteen after finding interest in nearby abandoned houses, without any formal education in photography. His work is mostly composed of surreal and bizarre self portraits, to create a surreal world in order to depict concepts. Fascinated by abandoned houses and empty forests, locations where the majority of his photographs take place, he is currently living in his car and driving all over the US and Canada.

3D is hot today. We will embrace a new design world.

Designer kevin spencer has created an eames lounge chair replica in 1:20 scale using rapid prototyping techniques. Available as a set with both the lounge chair and the ottoman, the printed mid-century furniture piece features details such as three molded plywood shells - which are 3D printed in color - the armrest, seat pan and backrest including grooves and texture seen in charles and ray's leather upholstered cushions. Just fantastic.

Karborn

A prototype young artist of the future-technoid, paradisiacal, neuromantic – an integration of intelligence and an instinctive engagement with visual arts, music, film and machines – informed by his vision of the clarity, beauty and geometry of the real world"

Craig Cramer - Bloom Day Scans

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Craig Cramer loves gardening and turning his green hobby into artworks. His project “Bloom Day Scans” is all about scanning his garden plants and turning them into images full of colour and movement. Recently he started experimenting with a kaleidoscope effects, creating beautiful patterns that can compete with those of specialized illustrators. This shows us that nature can be a great source of inspiration, not only for those looking for a romantic or naturalistic experience, but also for those who like to work with geometry and repetition. For those interested in more of Cramer’s work, you can visit his blog Ellis Hollow by clicking the link below.

Herman Miller

by Xavier Speeleveld

At Neocon 2013--the international event for the contract furniture industry--a common theme which resurfaced was the ability for office products to seamlessly shift from functioning as individual work spaces to open-plan environments. Industrial facility's (sam hecht and kim colin) 'locale office' for HERMAN MILLER is evidence of this, a system formed by a number of elements which encourages unexpected interactions, allowing employees to freely transition between private and collaborative activities.

Nendo Okimoku

by Xavier Speeleveld

Nendo Akimoku is japan's only workshop which specializes in making bentwood furniture. in wanting to celebrate the firm's 102-year history, nendo selected a few of its signature pieces as starting points for a collection of seating and table designs for edition blue by otsuka, which take advantage of the unique techniques practiced by akimoku. aptly named after the atelier, the collection of bentwood furniture by nendo reveal modifications of the chosen objects--they have simplified them in a way that reduces production costs (seen through the use of new metal molds and fixtures) while offering alternative functionality that still continues to showcase the charm of the original bentwood details at the same time.

Emma Lawrenson

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Emma Lawrenson is an artist featured in our gallery. She focuses on printmaking, producing abstract compositions and “exploring shape and form through the layering of colours, textures and painterly marks.” Her work and visual language mostly consists of geometric shapes and paterns, seemingly heavily inspired by classic abstract painters such as Mondriaan; while at other times exploring more fluid and irregular shapes and figures. Her inspiration stems from the architecture and landscape of her hometown Yorkshire, which she very methodically and precisely transforms into an essentialist balance of shape and colour.

The Palestinian museum

by Xavier Speeleveld

the palestinian museum by dublin firm heneghan peng architects is set to be architecture that behaves like history, narrating the story of a city that is at once embedded in the cultural riches of the past and a hopeful marker of modern palestine. embedded in the rolling hills of birzeit, palestine, the design expresses a landscape well worn by culture, environment, commerce and intervention. the architectonic masses draw directly from a tradition of cascading terraces; the site is formed through a series of moumental steps created by field stone walls which recall the agricultural terraces of the area. the theme of the landscape, from the cultural to the native terrain, unfolds across the terraces with the more habitable and occupiable volumes closest to the building, the plant life changes gradually as one moves down the terraces to the west.

ROXANA WAX

by Xavier Speeleveld

Her artworks are based on 3D elements and photographs. They go through a heavy process of transformation, assemblage and detail that puts them closer to a pictorial expression.Her images are reflections of a human life that wanders between ordinary events and a subconscious world where nature and bodies talk through complex disguises.

Daniel Martin Diaz - Soul of Science

by Bruce Vandeweyer

In Medieval times the systematic diagram was regarded as one of the highest forms of scientific knowledge. Daniel Martin Diaz was inspired by these century old drawings and set out to make his own modern versions of them. By combining the Medieval art of the scientific diagram with modern and futuristic topics such as cellular automata, time travel and sub-atomic physics, Diaz creates very captivating images. He collected his diagrams in a 128-page book "Soul of Science", combined with the writings of arts professionals and scientists, offering their interpretations of the relationship between science and art.

Thomas Broomé - Modern Mantra

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Thomas Broomé’s typographical illustrations of home interiors are a clever and original take on the interior photography offen seen in IKEA’s catalogs. Broomé’s drawings however also forces the audience to re-evaluate their homely surroundings and their consumerist tendencies regarding their own interior furnishing. These drawings even touch on philosophical questions regarding the relationship between language and reality. Modern Mantra shows us that art doesn’t always have to be obscure or complex to touch on interesting concepts, but can even be quite simple and beautiful while still having a profound hidden meaning.

Thomas Prior - Tultepec

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Tultepec is a small city in central Mexico known for their fireworks industry. Every year the locals celebrate their export industry by throwing a week long festival. During this they go head to head against eachother with dangerous pyrotechnics, much like a crazier version of the Spanish La Tomatina festival. Thomas Prior took a trip to witness this folkloric madness for himself, resulting in series of magnificent photographs. Not only are these photographs amazing on an purely esthetic level, but they beautifully capture the tension and danger in the air. Prior shows us that violence can be strangely mesmerizing at times.

Raffi Kalenderian - Rochele

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Raffi Kalenderian loves to feature his friends in a series of dreamlike portraits. He likes to sit down with them and make “portraits done from life”, slowing down the hectic technologic world and just sitting with them and observing eachother. This results in a portrait almost totally removed from reality: the same person appears multiple times in strange and impossible compositions. In “Rochele” we see a young woman figure flanked by two copies of herself, observed from a different viewing angle. This suggests the intrensic schizofrenic character of social relationships.

Kila & Rusharc - The Conception of Probable Dissolution

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Kila & Rusharc are two London based photographers, heavily inspired by twentieth century Surrealist painters and their visual vocabulary. With their mysterious compositions they aim to give a modern twist to the of ideas Dali, Magritte and other like-minded Surrealists. Just as these prophets of the surreal, Kila & Rusharc use everyday man-made objects and transform them into outworldly spectacles. Staying true to the same tradition every one of their photographs gets a mysterious title, seemingly capturing the obscured essence of the image. In “The Conception of Probable Dissolution” the centrepiece of the composition is a phonograph’s horn tranforming into a blooming flower, or the modern morphing into the organic and surreal.

Sou Fujimoto - Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013

by Bruce Vandeweyer

Sou Fujimoto is this year’s designer of the famous annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. In his designs he aims to re-inventing our relationship with our environment, seeking a delicate balance between the natural and artificial space. The pavillion consists of a lightweight and almost transparent stucture of steel poles, which gives it an almost dream-like appearance amidst the sereen natural landscape of the Kensington Gardens in London. Visitors will feel protected and sheltered from the outside elements, while never fully loosing contact with them. According the Fujimoto this creates a new form of environment “where the natural and the mand-made merge; not solely architectural nor solely natural, but a unique meeting of the two.”
