Domesticated Root Systems by Diana Scherer Form Twisting and Repetitive Patterns in Patches of Earth

   6 hours ago   |  ThisIsColossal

Amsterdam-based artist Diana Scherer investigates the desire for humans to control nature through her series Exercises in Root System Domestication. The project combines design, craft, and science to manipulate plants’ subterranean systems into forming mesmerizing interlocking patterns that are unlike what is found organically. To “train” the roots to grow in such complex patterns, Scherer develops underground geometric templates that the roots grow along and merge with as they grow.
This intelligent behavior of plants below ground, away from humanity’s watchful eye, is another inspiration for Scherer’s work. More

Swirling Three-Dimensional Script by Designer Alia Bright

   19 Mar 01:00:01   |  ThisIsColossal

Portland-based designer Alia Bright creates interlocking text with bright gradient patterns that combine her background in illustration, fine art, and graphic design. The looping letters are formed from paper and glue, and are created with several different weights and stocks to add a visual texture to the graphic presentation. For Bright, the trick to a successful work is finding the sweet spot where the three-dimensional aspect of the paper highlights the lettering, and vice versa. More

A Geometric Light Projection by Joanie Lemercier Invites Viewers to Take a Trip Through the Stars

   19 Mar 01:00:01   |  ThisIsColossal

Constellations is a light-based audio-visual installation by Joanie Lemercier that explores the great expanse of our universe through the presentation of morphing geometric shapes and bright glowing orbs. The three-dimensional light work is projected onto water, which gives it a rippling, holographic effect, further intensified by an electronic soundscape produced by Paul Jebanasam. “It?s an exploration of the stars, constellations and the vastness of the cosmos, suggesting the beauty of geometry, simple and complex structures of the universe,” explains Lemercier.

Ceramic Dishes Drawn as Rippling Pools of Culture by Brendan Lee Satish Tang

   18 Mar 01:00:01   |  ThisIsColossal

For his “Swimmers” print series, artist Brendan Lee Satish Tang transformed traditional blue and white ceramic dishware patterns into a symbol for culture: the complex, learned, and shared pool that surrounds us all. Each intricately drawn work features two swimmers (parental figures and children, siblings, and peers) who are seemingly unaffected as they attempt to navigate the rippling waters together.
Born in Ireland to Trinidadian parents, Tang received a formal art education in the United States and in Canada, where he is a naturalized citizen. More

A Multi-Level Pedestrian Vessel Designed by Heatherwick Studio Opens at Hudson Yards

   17 Mar 01:00:01   |  ThisIsColossal

Thomas Heatherwick’s new copper-colored structure at New York City’s Hudson Yards exists somewhere between a building and a pavilion, yet is classified by neither title. The open-air structure, which is temporarily nicknamed as “Vessel,” is a maze of 154 crossing stairwells and 80 landings that combine to form a honeycomb-like shape. Although the towering design appears like a sculptural work, the architects behind the project view it more as a piece of furniture than piece of architecture. More

Human-Powered Clocks by Maarten Baas Physically Mark the Passage of Time

   15 Mar 01:00:01   |  ThisIsColossal

Dutch artist Maarten Baas produces artworks that lay at the intersection of visual art, performance, and design, creating manual clocks that are erased and redrawn on the stroke of each minute. In pieces like Grandfather Clock and Schiphol Clock Baas places himself within the structure of the time-telling devices, functioning as the works’ human mechanism. Other pieces from his Real Time series use the assistance of another performer to create 12-hour films, such as a line of perpetually swept trash doubling as a clock arm. More

Colorful Ceramics Accented by Gravity-Defying Drips

   15 Mar 01:00:01   |  ThisIsColossal

Rain falls through the air in smooth curvaceous orbs, instantaneously splitting as it splatters to the ground. Chinese artist Bian Xiaodong?s glossy ceramics resemble these falling droplets, however their inverted forms drip upwards rather than down. The artist crafts his gravity-defying artworks from kaolin clay derived from Jingdezhen ?a part of east China?s Jiangxi Province known for its history of crafting porcelain.
After adding the clay to silicone moulds, Bian turns the pieces upside down and lets the natural flow of the clay create a unique shape. More
