There will be art. And more art.
And pretty stuff overall. Including an overwhelming amount of cats.
I really like cats.
There may be some fandom-related posts occasionally, but not fangirl craziness. Just some random stuff.
Firewall is an interactive media installation created in collaboration with Mike Allison. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and create fire-like visuals and expressively play music. More information available on the project’s blog.
Fireflies on the Water isan installation made of 150 lights, mirrors and water. It offers an out-of-this-world experience from the confines of a modest room paneled with mirrors and adorned with 150 tiny beads of light deliberately suspended throughout the compact space. Upon entering the room, there’s an illusionary effect that gives the impression of infinite space reflected on all sides and in the two inches of water that flows below.
“Your rainbow panorama” is a great permanent work of art by Olafur Eliasson made for the rooftop of ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (Denmark), and provides the visitors a unique panoramic visual experience.
It’s 150 meters of circular walkway, three meters wide made in glass, a diameter of 52 meters, mounted on 3.5 meters columns.
The project, as Olafur Eliasson says, inspires a rich dialogue between visual arts and architecture, but also between our inner present-and-immediate perceptions and our previous unconscious calculations of values.
Erik Ravelo is a Cuban artist that threads all physical spectrum’s of love. His latest series Lana Sutra is sponsored by United Colors of Benetton. The artist crosses borders by branching out on the diversity of culture, humanity and uniting us as one.
“I’m a human being and I don’t believe in borders. I think the world belongs to everyone born on Earth. This is my planet, our planet. No man is an island. Yes, I was born on Cuba but, above all, I was born on Planet Earth. I like to think that Lana Sutra talks about universal love which cancels diversity.”
I shot portraits of 600 girls and staff at Havergal College in Toronto, focusing on their eyes. The idea to create a tree out of the images came about from a short brainstorm session with students in the art club. They were interested in ideas of representing the school population as a whole and giving a nod to where the school is physically located – amongst a beautifully landscaped tree filled acreage. As much of my work deals with inclusion and I like breaking down ideas to their simplest form, the idea to create a tree using the girls eyes seemed to make complete sense and satisfied everyone’s various interests in the project. 3,600 eyes total.
