THE BEAUTY IN EXPIRED LA BY  VICKY MOON

CA, Los Angeles-based photographer Vicky Moon - "Expired L.A. is an on going series of my exploration of Los Angeles at night. Every building is unique and captivating, as well as the individual color shifts each building creates with every exposure. I am fascinated by the drama that is created by the night sky and seek the beautiful in the over looked; I find the mundane to be extravagant and I find the beauty in the expired; This is my Los Angeles."

HUT “Hermitage” by Ethan Hayes-Chute

Artist Ethan Hayes-Chute lives and works in Freeport, Maine & Berlin, Germany. Through paintings, sculptures, large-scale installations and artist’s books, he explores the ideas of self-sufficiency, self-preservation and self-exclusion as models for living. Hayes-Chute’s hut is an accumulation of stuff, the ephemera of the every day. Its materials are found, stitched together, hand-assembled – chair, desk, table, shaving mirror, and coffee mug furnish the cabin’s primary function to house and sustain.

LAST HOUSE ON HOLLAND ISLAND

The winter storms early in 2010 took a severe toll on this proud remnant of another century and another way of life. The brick skirting around the foundation has been washed away and the entire foundation on the right (south) side is gone. ( Image via: baldeaglebluff )

Architects of Air - LUMINARIA | EXXOPOLIS

To commemorate the 20th luminarium, and to celebrate its long association with Nottingham, Architects of Air returned to its roots to involve local people. In partnership with Lakeside Arts Centre local community groups were enlisted in the ‘Windows Project’ workshops to make the intricate ‘stained glass’ windows of the EXXOPOLIS cupola based on a tiling design by Sir Roger Penrose.

The luminaria are designed by company founder, Alan Parkinson, who started experimenting with pneumatic sculptures in the I980s. 

Each luminarium is an original design. The principal difference between the different luminaria is found in the rendering of the domes and in the layout of the tunnels.

The domes are the large chambers rising up to 10 metres high that provide the focal points. The tunnels connect the domes and determine the journey the visitor will take. The luminaria also feature ‘pods’ - alcoves where people can sit and relax out of the way of the other visitors.

Each luminarium is a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and colour.

URSULINENS PROLAPSE
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s powerful recycled wood installations “Ursulinens Prolapse”
(OK Center, Linz-Austria | plywood, PVC, foam and pigments | 3,75 x 9,07 x 15,27m | 2012 )
Dan Cameron - “Although many installation artists today produce work that reaches far outside the established bounds of both painting and sculpture, the work of young Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira seems to be almost without peer.
Despite such comparisons, no other artist working today seems in possession of quite the same ease and fluidity at transforming the boundaries of the one medium into the other, not least of all as this ease is manifested in the new untitled `brushstroke` piece he has produced for the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
To a degree, this work crystallizes a long-term struggle within Oliveira`s art to transform three-dimensional museum space into a dynamically charged zone of free-flowing energy that the viewer experiences as bearing no edges, no beginning or end, and no measurable shape or contours.”

ISTIGKEIT

Photographer Mattia Mognetti"Since 2010 I began to ride my congenital attraction for architectures: their huge volumes and gigantism, their shapes and textures… Fascinated by perspectives I was taking photographs without fully understanding what my attention was attracted by, what I tried to represent with a shot and his post-production. Photography as an opportunity to take a fragment of reality and make it a meaning, butalso, conversely, as an expedient to let a significance take possession of reality to bring out himself. The contrast between these two visions became the source of my own reflections. Slowly I realized that psychology was an integral part of my creative experience. That I wasn’t trying to represent architectures, but to use a photograph as way to strike and confuse my perceptive system. So I started producing the first works that were later structured in“Istigkeit”. ….

NEW MUMBAI

TOBIAS REVELL - During the Indian Civil War, the Dharavi slums of Mumbai were flooded with refugees looking to escape the conflict. The Mumbai authorities, distracted by defence of the city and facing an already over-populated and poverty stricken slum could do little to maintain a semblance of civilised life in the area. Sometime later a cache of biological samples appeared through the criminal networks of Mumbai, in the vain hope that it might provide new marketable narcotic opportunities. The collective drive and expertise of the refugees managed to turn theses genetically-engineered fungal samples into a new type of infrastructure Ð providing heat, light and building material for the refugees. Dharavi rapidly evolved itÕs own micro-economy based around the mushrooms. This documentary tells the story of some of the characters involved from Mumbai and the rest of the world and how Dharavi came to be such a unique place.

100 ABANDONED HOUSES

Photographer Kevin Bauman - The abandoned houses project began innocently enough roughly ten years ago. I actually began photographing abandonment in Detroit in the mid 90’s as a creative outlet, and as a way of satisfying my curiosity with the state of my home town. I had always found it to be amazing, depressing, and perplexing that a once great city could find itself in such great distress, all the while surrounded by such affluence. [more]
