Artist Dan Tanenbaum Creates Detailed Model Motorbikes Made Entirely From Discarded Watch Parts

Model Motorbikes Made Entirely From Discarded Watch Parts 2014 01 650x433 Artist Dan Tanenbaum Creates Detailed Model Motorbikes Made Entirely From Discarded Watch Parts

Artist and miniature-maker Dan Tanenbaum has a fascination with the inner workings of watches. He could obsess over the tiny components in the timepieces for days. He describes himself as an “avid, if not obsessive” watch collector. In addition, he collects the discarded pieces of vintage watches and gives new life to each of the pieces. At first, he started making cufflinks decorated with watch gears arranged to look like tiny motorcycles. (As a lover of watches, he only uses broken and discarded watch components, and never breaks apart functioning watches.) Soon, though, the cufflinks, as unique as they are, began to feel stale, and so Tanenbaum expanded his portfolio to include free-standing miniature models of motorcycles, all created from watch parts.

Maniac Pumpkin Carvers Workshop

In time for Halloween the Maniac Pumpkin Carvers, creative art studio, held the Cotton Candy Machine workshop in Brooklyn, N.Y., demonstrating techniques and tools to create intricate pumpkin art. Maniac Pumpkin Carvers, which focuses on elevating the art of pumpkin carving, were a past winner of the Food Network’s Halloween Wars. Their work has been displayed at MOMA, the Whitney Museum and Yankee Stadium. Founders Marc Evan and Chris Soria, friends since they were 12, have a history of trying to outdo each other on who can make something scarier for Halloween. The duo started carving pumpkins when they were studying illustration at the Parsons School of Design. After graduating in 2002, they started doing illustration and mural work in New York City, and worked part-time at restaurants and bars for extra income. They started carving pumpkins for their employers to use as Halloween decorations. Evans and Soria wanted to see how far they could push beyond the traditional style of pumpkin carving that had been dominant and onto a more artistic level.

Petr Pavlensky: a Naked Protest Against the Kremlin

Pavlensky was born in 1984 in Saint Petersburg. Became renowned for his political action in support of a Russian punk group «p*ssy Riot». On July 23 of 2012 the artist came to Kazan Cathedral, St. Petersburg with his mouth sewn up with a coarse thread, holding a banner reading: “Action of p*ssy Riot was a replica of the famous action of Jesus Christ (Matthew.21:12–13)”. The police called an ambulance, which took Pavlensky for a psychiatric examination, but the psychiatrist declared him sane and released shortly after the incident. Later, Pavlensky made an additional comment about his action: “By suturing my mouth in front of the Kazan Cathedral, I wanted to show position of the artist in contemporary Russia: a ban on publicity. I am sickened by intimidation of society, mass paranoia, which manifestations I see everywhere”.

On May 3, 2013 Pavlensky held a political protest action against repressive policies of the government. His art performance was called Carcass. Artist’s assistants brought him naked and wrapped in a multilayered cocoon of barbed wire to the main entrance of the Legislative Assembly of Saint Petersburg. The artist remained silent laying still in a half-bent position inside the cocoon and did not react to the actions of others, until he was released by the police with the help of the garden clippers. In her interview to Radio Liberty, Pavlensky’s colleague Oksana Shalygina mentioned that a metaphor of the action had its immediate realization in the reality: as soon as the barbed wire was cut off, and the artist was freed from it, “the same exact wire wrapped him back in as police, ambulance and numerous field investigators”.

On November 10 of 2013, while sitting naked on the stone pavement in front of the Lenin’s Mausoleum on the Red Square, Moscow, Pavlensky hammered a large nail through his scrotum affixing it to the stone pavement. His action coincides with the annual Russian Police Day. When the police arrived, they covered him with a blanket and later arrested him. “A naked artist, looking at his testicles nailed to the cobblestone is a metaphor of apathy, political indifference, and fatalism of Russian society”, declared Pavlensky in his statement to the media.

On 19 October 2014 Pavlensky cut his ear while sitting naked on the roof of the infamous Serbsky Center in protest against political abuse of psychiatry in Russia.

Pavlensky protested against the usage of forensic psychiatry for politically motivated purposes. He cut off his earlobe to demonstrate how authorities could “cut off” an unwanted individual from society by using psychiatric and medical diagnosis to forcefully send a person to a penitentiary hospital, according to Pavlensky.
