Avian architecture

by Xavier Speeleveld

Using mixed materials like plumage, hair, gold, and paint, new zealand artist Karley Feaver creates exotic creatures and nests with a strangely familiar and surreal aesthetic. transforming found birds — all of which are ethically sourced and have died of natural causes — from stagnant figures to sculptural objects, the reconfigured animals are fitted with extravagant hairdos. ponytails, mohawks, dreadlocks, and braids are styled onto the colorful fowl, some with shining gold-painted beaks, granting each a personality, identity, and singular charm. habitats fashioned from both human and synthetic hair weave new interpretations of traditional nestings, modeling a novel type of avian architecture.

Leif Podhajsky

Experiments in data bending and visual sound manipulation. These artworks were exported as uncompressed data and fed as raw binary into a sound editing program. This essentially is the sound of an 'image'.Tapping into the vibrations of the the digital zeitgeist, I believe that these sounds although abstract let us perceive the images with all of our senses. Yawing from our reality and dipping into an interwoven network of information and consciousness that operates on an alternate frequency.

french designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have collaborated with crystal manufacturer swarovski to develop ‘gabriel chandelier’ a unique LED intervention in the palace of versailles in paris. measuring 12 meters in height and weighing half a tonne, the installation was conceived as the first permanent contemporary piece in the 17th century château. 800 crystal modules compose the suspended lighting system, illuminating the interior fabric of the space using a sequential pattern like magic. threaded around a stainless steel skeleton, the continuous crystal rope floats over the main staircase, glistening during the day, and providing a warm glow at night.

Thierry Feuz

by Xavier Speeleveld

Thierry Feuz, born in Vienna and now based in Geneva, has created an ongoing series of paintings—“Supernatural,” “Psychotropical,” “Technicolor,” and now “Gulfstream”—over the past five years. While separated into distinct groups, the paintings in these series share a fundamental characteristic: Each successive series appears to magnify the view of the preceding one, as though seen through a microscope. Feuz uses this scientific corollary to Cheap iPad 3 Casesreexamine classic conceptions of nature, a force that is at once beautiful and picturesque yet is always already in decay; his combination of abstraction and figuration articulates this deteriorating materiality and permits his investigation into permutations of instability—of perspective, physicality, and organicism.

CCTV

Motion sculptures for CCTV Documentary Channel is a digital metaphor of phenomenal blinks and moments that life consists of. In four Idents we follow a visual performance of organic and vital substance, animated using data of actors movements.Idents visualize four different themes. To emphasize the emotion of each Ident, we have decided to use different textures of steel, wood and glass. Motion sculpture of steel reflects old Chinese adage that true power is mastering yourself. Youthful energy of dancers evolve into beautiful organic sculpture. Colorful happiness is the engine of father's and his daughter's joy. Two lovers visualize fragility and vitality of love in the last Ident.
