Vintage Typewriters are reassembled into amazing metallic Bird Sculptures

Vintage Typewriters are reassembled into amazing metallic Bird Sculptures by Jeremy Mayer

 

 

Jeremy Mayer challenges the notion that typewriters’ creative output is confined to the written word.

 

The artist scours shops and trash bins near his Bay Area studio for analogue processors in disrepair that he then disassembles, sorts, and reconstructs into metallic sculptures.

 

His previous works include symmetrical assemblages, anatomical recreations, and an ongoing series of birds, the most recent of which are shown here.

 

Mayer builds every piece solely from original parts rather than soldering or gluing, and some sculptures, including the black crow with a Corona-brand typewriter logo on its back, feature spring-like components that allow the creatures to bob their heads.

 

Mayer is currently at work on a few large-scale reliefs, a kinetic lotus, skull, and additional birds, and you can follow updates and news about purchasing pieces on his Instagram.

Chromatic Installation

A chromatic installation by Felipe Pantone turns a public walkway into an architectural kaleidoscope

 

 

Argentinian-Spanish artist Felipe Pantone magnifies the prismatic principles that ground his Subtractive Variability series to a phenomenal scale in the newly installed “Quick Tide.”

 

Whether working in kinetic sculpture or large-scale murals, Pantone investigates the vast realm of colour theory and its bottomless potential, in this instance transforming the cyan, magenta, and yellow model into a dynamic display. “The idea of creating a system in which I can create endless colour combinations within the visible colour spectrum by simply rotating or displacing the same image over and over (in C, M, Y)… the results are always random, unexpected, yet always interesting for me,” Pantone tells Colossal.

 

The site-specific “Quick Tide” wraps the upper and lower levels of an elevated walkway in London’s Greenwich Peninsula with a vibrant collision of light and pigment.

 

Angled blocks hold radial gradients to “make obvious where the different colours overlap and how different hues appear. These details are usually easy to find as chromatic aberrations in prints by looking under the magnifier,” the artist shares, noting that the combinations shift in appearance depending on the time of day and position of the viewer.

 

Pantone will soon open a solo show titled Manipulable at Tokyo’s Gallery Common that invites visitors to interact with the works.

Impossibly small Houseplants crafted from Paper

Impossibly small Houseplants and Basketry crafted from Paper by Raya Sader Bujana

 

 

Barcelona-based artista Raya Sader Bujana defines her work as something between sculpture and illustration, creating impossibly tiny replicas of houseplants that rest atop a finger.

 

From leaves to blooms and thorns to branches, even the delicate woven baskets that contain the plants are constructed from paper with the aid of tweezers and scalpels in a process more akin to surgery than origami.

 

Her background in architecture translates to an exacting quality of “composition, use of colour, texture, volume, light and sometimes subject matter,” she shares. Bujana also has a wide range of corporate clients like Coca Cola, Swarovski, and HP.

 

You can follow more of her process and updates to her online shops on her account on Instagram: @littlerayofsunflower.

Turning everyday goods into quirky Miniatures

A daily Project by Tatsuya Tanaka, turns everyday goods into quirky Miniatures.

 

 

A scroll through Tatsuya Tanaka’s Instagram chronicles the everyday happenings of a cleverly designed world in miniature. The Japanese artist has spent the last decade reimaging life-sized objects like pencil sharpeners, sponges, and slippers as tiny sets for his cast of characters: a “P” key rests on a painter’s easel, bobsledders barrel through a bowl on a hot pepper, and ice skaters race across a white surgical mask.

 

Released daily as part of his ongoing Miniature Calendar project, the works often correspond with current events and cultural moments, including Tanaka’s recent scenarios referencing the Winter Olympic Games.

“The theme of my work is ‘imitate’… to replace something around us with something similar or that looks like it. It is important to use something that everyone knows as a motif for my work,” he writes.

 

For a look behind-the-scenes, click through each day on Tanaka’s site, where he shares multiple perspectives of every work.

Herds of life-sized Elephants roam through London’s Parks

Herds of life-sized Elephants Roam through London’s Parks for a global Conservation Project

 

 

Sixty migrating elephants pass between Piccadilly and Buckingham Palace in London’s Green Park in one of nine herds roaming throughout the city. The lumbering creatures are part of an ongoing collaboration between two nonprofits, CoExistence and Elephant Family, that explores how humans can better live alongside animals and the larger ecosystem through imaginative public art projects.

 

As its name suggests, CoExistence’s aim is to identify mutually beneficial modes of living considering that within the last century, the balance between world population and wilderness has shifted considerably: in 1937, 66 percent of global environments were intact with 2.3 billion people on Earth.

 

Today, those numbers have undergone a dramatic change, with a world population of 7.8 billion and only 35 percent of wilderness remaining.

The organization’s most recent effort brings the gargantuan animals to urban spaces throughout London that are typically closed off to wildlife. The herds can be spotted in St. James’s Park, Berkeley Square, and even the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s homes at Highgrove.

 

In addition to generating awareness of environmental crises, the installations raise funds to support grassroots organizations throughout India that promote Indigenous culture and establish technology and infrastructure that allows humans and animals to live symbiotically.

 

CoExistence plans to install approximately 500 animals around the world in the next few years, and with the help of The Real Elephant Collective, each nation will receive a herd designed specifically for the location. The collective partners with Indigenous communities from the Tamil Nadu jungle in southern India, who live alongside the real-life animals, to create the sculptural iterations that stand up to 15 feet tall and weigh nearly 800 pounds.

 

Each creature is constructed from long strips of lantana camara, an invasive weed that spreads in dense thickets and disturbs the environment and by removing the plant, the artists help to reinstate the natural ecosystem.

Ceramic Mosaics Mend Cracked Sidewalks

Ceramic Mosaics mend cracked sidewalks, potholes and buildings, in vibrant Interventions by Ememem

 

Throughout his home city of Lyon, Ememem is known as “the pavement surgeon.” The artist repairs gouged sidewalks and splintered facades with colorful mosaics that he describes as “a poem that everybody can read.”

 

Intricate geometric motifs laid with pristine tiles hug the cracks and create “a memory notebook of the city. It reveals what happened, the life in these public places,” he tells Colossal. “Here cobblestones have been picked up and thrown. There a truck from the vegetable market tore off a piece of asphalt…”

 

Ememem’s first mosaic dates back 10 years when he found himself in a damaged alley in Lyon. At that time, he already was working in ceramic and translated that practice to revitalizing the outdoor area.

 

Since 2016, he’s been consistently filling potholes and other divots throughout France. “It’s a succession of a lot of places and reflections, experiments I did before. I had done similar things, with other techniques, other supports, and finally, when this one emerged, I knew I found something that I was going to keep doing for the rest of my life,” he says.

Fabio Viale tattooed and carved marble sculptures

Fabio Viale sets tattooed and carved marble sculptures across the tuscan town of Pietrasanta

 

 

The tuscan town of Pietrasanta has been treated to a public exhibition featuring the monumental works of the sculptor Fabio Viale. The artist, who is widely known for his tattooed marble sculptures, was invited by Pietrasanta’s mayor to display a series of works conceived in dialogue with the town’s historic urban fabric.

 

Titled ‘Truly’, the exhibition was held across Pietrasanta’s most picturesque public spaces, including its piazza del Duomo and the 14th century church of Sant’agostino. responding to the ongoing pandemic, Fabio Viale interprets the meaning of our period of enforced isolation, premiering — among other works — hissculpture ‘The three graces’ within the church.

 

ITruly, an exhibition produced with the support of the Galleria Poggiali, Viale responds to the new iconography to which we are all subject — face masks.

 

The artist symbolically expresses the theme through the sculpture ‘The three graces’, set within the church of Sant’agostino. Made in white marble and featuring detailed drapery, the subjects depict three women originating from Ghardaïa, a city in Algeria.

 

Here the women wear the traditional haik, a loose, white, full-length garment wrapped around the head and body, leaving only one eye uncovered. Having visited the city of Ghardaïa on one of his frequent travels, Viale says that he wished for the artwork to focus attention on the issue of denied freedom and, at the same time, on the clichéd perception of this idea that westerners have.

The positioning of ‘The three graces’ in the church highlights its mystical and symbolic energy, and further seeks to stimulate a conversation around the issues of personal, religious and meditative freedom. This idea is also reflected in its juxtaposition with ‘Stargate’, a sculpture made out of arabescato marble from mount altissimo.

 

Comprising two monumental fruit crates joined together with a small gap left in between, the sculpture becomes both a passage and a boundary — themes associated with outcomes of new spirituality and emancipation.

Precisely arranged Stones Coil and surge across the Land

A scroll through Jon Foreman’s Instagram proves just how prolific the Wales-based artist has been this year—he’s collaborated with artist James Brunt on a few projects, too.

From coils arranged in gradients to whirling patterns embedded in the sand, Foreman’s land art sprawls across beaches and grassy patches in an impressive number of locations.

 

Each work is precise in composition, perfectly matching size, hue, and shape into hypnotic works that contrast the man-made construction with their organic backdrops.

 

Because the outdoor projects are ephemeral in nature, Foreman offers prints of most pieces in his shop.

Faux Taxidermy and Anatomical Sculptures

Florals, Beads and Lace Embellish Whimsical Faux Taxidermy and Anatomical Sculptures

 

 

Based in Austria, Natalia Lubieniecka scours Vienna’s markets for antique objects, fabrics, and anatomical posters that eventually inform and meld into her peculiar sculptures. Whether it be a blush-colored heart enveloped in florals, a supine frog with exposed entrails, or a deceased bird covered in a lace bodice, her fantastical works speak to the fragile relationship between life and death.

The sculptor tells that her interest in organs and bodies began after a visit to Naturhistorische Museum Wien, where she encountered taxidermy of birds, insects, and other animals.

 

Her favorite piece, though, is her faux anatomical heart because it pushed her to expand her source material. “I think that human and animal anatomy has something magical about it. Each organ is responsible not only for the functioning of the body, but also for feelings, thoughts, and emotions, and these transport us to another magical dimension,” she said.
