Wings

Movement and interactive relationship with the body has been the most important element throughout my body of work. However through these works, I also started to explore the mechanical structure as a form. Mechanical structure becomes the most enjoyable form to me as it becomes complex yet remains simple and coherent. The contrast between metal structural form and natural feather, together with the repetitive and whimsical movements of fragile wings, provokes the imagination and evolves the intimate relationship between work and viewer/wearer. Although the recent series, segmented wings have been focused on the formal challenge to engineer an intricate movement that simulates bird wings, these works are intended to be a series of poems in which I develope my own formal language, interpret the nature of wings, create various structural forms with movements, and share the metaphor, imagination, humor, with viewer/wearer.

"Ce Livre Devrait Me Permettre de Resoudre le Conflit au Proche-Orient, d’Avoir Mon Diplôme et de Trouver une femme" - Mazas Sylvain
I just read this book and it’s very funny and well illustrated. I recommend it to everyone. But please buy it at your local book store to avoid giving more money to people who have already enough of it and to support the ones that are passionate about books. The english translation should be arriving any time soon or read it in french or german, the original language. The book tells the story of the author who went to Lebanon to learn arabic and to write his master thesis. It’s full of funny anecdotes and schematic explanations about the middle east conflict and how it would be possible to put an end to it.

”On August 28th 2011 Hurricane Irene made landfall over New York’s Coney Island with winds at 65 mph. It hit New York City at 9 a.m. ET bringing with it a storm surge that sent 3½ feet of water into New York Harbor. Although downgraded to a tropical storm, it still flooded low-lying areas and left millions of homes without power all along the Eastern Seaboard.
 
Fascinated as I am by the Ocean, that afternoon I took a drive out to Jones Beach to shoot the surf. These are a study of the waves during high winds, but they are also a study of power and of contrasts – for while the wind whips the surface in this spray-heavy storm and vast swathes of water are forced to fold in on themselves there is, deep down, a sense of calm. A place where the ocean remains untouched.
Unlike me. I am in awe. While I take pictures, calmly framing each shot, the sight moves me beneath the surface in a way I can’t explain.
 
Perhaps that’s why I photograph it.  ”

Ecstasy by Karen Cusolito

This massive figurative installation by California-based mixed media artist Karen Cuolito stands a staggering 30 feet high, made of 9 tons of salvaged steel. The sculpture depicts an emotive woman who has slung her head back in a state of euphoria. She is meant to embody passion, with her tilted head and emotional stance.

Mike Tompkins: Skrillex and Santigold Voice Mashup

Plenty of people have gotten famous because of YouTube, but few of them are as talented as Mike Tompkins. Part beatbox, part Ableton jockey and part expert Dubstep face maker, Tompkins combined Skrillex and Santigold in a way that would make both original artists proud. And he did it using only sounds created with his […]

Artist My Dog Sighs uses crushed cans he finds on the street as canvases for his awesome Canman series. First the bottom of each can receives a coat of stony grey paint which serves as skin tone. After that the former pieces of litter reveal their own unique personalities as My Dog Sighs creates their facial expressions. Some cans are happy, some sad, some human, some animal, some dapper (check out the sweet mustache and monocle can!). The round ends of the cans sometimes appear to be portholes through which the Canmen peer out at us.

Once completed, the Canmen are prominently placed back on the street where they wait patiently to be discovered and perhaps even taken home by observant pedestrians. Absolutely wonderful. 

Visit My Modern Metropolis to view more photos from the delightful Canman series.

Talk about keeping things green! We’d be so stoked if we found one of these near the office… *hint hint*
