The Oblitaration Room

We are halfway there, it’s already Wednesday. This week feels like it’s going so fast. Hows your week been? I’ve been skying in Lech and am currently lying in bed with my leg propped up on  a cushion after a rather glamorous fall resulting a blue leg :$.

You need to check out this amazing art installation. You may have seen it before but I’ve just stumbled across it and I love it.

Incredible artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large house environment and painted every wall, chair, table, piano, etc. white providing a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the smallest museum visitors were given thousands upon thousand of multi-coloured stickers letting them turn the house into a beautiful explosion of colour. Isn’t it great?

À la Plage, À la Piscine

Image

It is miserable day today. It’s raining, it’s grey and I can hear the wind shuffling through the trees outside. It’s the perfect day to share with you these amazing pictures by Gray Malin. 

Shooting from doorless helicopters, the 27 year old photographer Gray Malin from Dallas has taken some exceptional images that according to me capture the spirit of summer. From the USA to South Africa, from Australia to Brazil, his series “a la place, a la piscine” results is a beautiful emergence of people patterns upon the landscape. These pictures turn real life scenarios into a beautiful pattern displaying an order of colour and shapes making chaos look pure. Don’t you think there great?

P.S. I’m slightly tempted to look out for Wally in these pictures, they really remind me of the Where’s Wally books 🙂

A Caramelised Sugar House

Image

Can you imagine a house made from sugar? Well check out this incredible solarium created but the artist William Lamson. The house which was created fro the Storm King Art Center’s Light and Landscape show in 2012 and is made entirely from sugar.  

Each of the 162 panels is made of sugar cooked to different temperatures and then sealed between two panels of glass. The space functions as both an experimental greenhouse, growing three species of miniature citrus trees, and a meditative environment.

Do you think it’s just incredible?

Nick Knight is a British photographer who has a reputation for pushing boundaries both technically and creatively. He continually challenges conventional ideas of beauty working on a range of often controversial subjects such as racism, disability, agism and more recently fat-ism.

Knight’s work has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Saatchi Gallery, the Photographers Gallery, the Hayward Gallery and the Tate Modern however recently I stumbled across these incredible flower photographs that he published on his Instagram account. Aren’t they beautiful?

I hope your manning though the week guys, its nearly Friday 🙂 x
