Hand Sewn Portraits by David Catá

1176 Hand Sewn Portraits by David Catá
Does love really has to hurt? According to artist David Catá it obviously does. The Spanish artist uses his body as a canvas, writing an autobiographical diary. In his ongoing series ‘A Flor De Piel’, he embroiders portraits of people who have influenced or marked his life – family, friends, teachers, lovers, partners – sewn into the palm of his hand.

‘Their lives have been interwoven with mine to build my history’, Catá explains. ‘Every moment lived stays in the memory to finally be forgotten. Somehow, this fact is painful, since there are only material things and traces that people leave behind’. The woven flesh work establishes a symbiosis between union, separation, pain and love, a performatic and symbolic action of loss and preserves the memories through memorial, corporal and videographic footprints.

UK-based artist Jane Perkins obtains her inspiration in found objects. She uses anything from toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewelry etc. as material for her re-interpreted contemporary art. Perkins states that she doesn’t add any color, her work comes out of spontaneously placed small pieces of right size and shape.

Inspired by impressionist artist and famous portraits, Perkins achieves a mesmerizing effect in her creations. Her work keeps your eyes attached from a distance view and a close-up as well. So many interesting small pieces perfectly arranged to masterpieces.

Interactive Tape installation by Numen/ For Use

1171 Interactive Tape installation by Numen/ For Use
Design collective Numen/ For Use used thick transparent sticky tape to create an interactive installation. By stretching, sticking and wrapping thick layers of tape around grounded pillars, beams, trees or whatever standing objects exist in the chosen space Numen/ For Use create a web of tendon tunnels and spaces that can be accessed and crawled through, strong enough to carry human weight. From afar the installation appears like an interwoven structure of bending elastic pipes.

The original idea for the installation originated in a set design concept for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between pillars.

Erwan Fichou’s Bizarre Photographs of People in Manicured Trees

1170 Erwan Fichou’s Bizarre Photographs of People in Manicured Trees
Years before the project Miradors became reality, photographer Erwan Fichou saw a man standing in a tree that looked like a UFO. This image stuck with him and he eventually turned his memory into a reality, working with gardeners to design topiaries of varying shapes and sizes.

Afterwards, he invited people off the street to climb those trees and photographed them at the top.This strange and light-hearted series illustrates the interesting progression of what happens when we have a memory. Often times we see things as we walk down the street, file them in our brain, and move on. So, it’s refreshing to see that Fichou returned to this moment and developed something completely new from it.

“Conduction”- Bubble Art by Tomoya Matsuura

Conduction 1372 650x504 Conduction  Bubble Art by Tomoya Matsuura

This work goes beyond the concept of macro and micro sizes, and is an expression of the vitality of the ‘conduction’ that exists in the universe, in nature, in life, and in the small particle which is this magnificent world.
Comprising only of soap bubbles and thread, this simple, inorganic material manages to convey mystery, and somehow evoke the life force of an unborn baby lying in wait of its birth. Inside there is an expansiveness which seems to go beyond time and space, bringing to mind a huge network on a macro an micro level. It makes you realize the dynamic ‘conduction’ in this world is actually brimming all around you.
