Rogan Brown visualize bionic life in minuscule details

making multiple visual references with cell structure: micros pathogens, vegetate forms:  coral, fossils, insects, and shells. The various minuscule body organs and orifices are  geological, and topographical maps cut away models with light laser, Magical Circle Variations merge  sources of inspiration with a pastel color scheme that can also be found in a coral habitat.

visual crafts which find a bridge between the imagination and observational space ;  mimicking the breathtaking detail and complexity that exists at every level of scale in nature and filtering it through the eccentricity of the individual imagination, and reflected in the excessive detail which characterizes which overwhelms the eye by its sheer scale and volume.

inspired by Rogan brown,  The recurrent theme in this project is the limitations of science when confronted by the vast scale and complexity of nature, science’s goal of containing and defining nature is constantly subverted and fractured by the sheer volume and variety of data that needs to be observed, analysed and classified.

. “What the reef and the microbiome have in common is that they both consist of biodiverse colonies of organisms that coexist more or less harmoniously, Brown explains.  Done with paper materials as it embodies the paradoxical qualities that we see in nature: its fragility and durability, its strength and delicacy; there is a pleasing poetic symmetry in taking this material that was cut from the forest and by cutting and transforming it once again returning it to its origins.

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity…and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of a man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.” William Blake


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are further parallels between coral and human beings in that we are both symbiont organisms, that is we depend on a mutually beneficial relationship with another species: coral only receive their beautiful colors from varieties of algae that live on them and human beings can only exist thanks to the unimaginably huge and diverse number of bacteria that live in and on them.”

Magnum design poster, made from little pieces of apple slices , chocolates bits and apple  chops , dyed with coffee and food coloring , the latest in a series of  projects for Philippines based Visual Artist and paper cutter  Patrick Cabral .

The poster featured much of his present preoccupation  combining his own peculiar style of kirigami ( Japanese paper cutting art form )  a little more of new experiences gained from his foray into realm of matte artistry.

To help commemorate the occasion, Magnum Philippines had tapped Patrick to help create art inspired by “Make Your Own “  Magnum’s promise of creating bespoke pleasure using various ingredients, dips and sauces.

But picking patrick was no chance.  His  previous works stood out. They  include an on-going series on instagram ,exploring various  animal form in layered papers , cut to a delicate execution and stacked to reveal a complete structure .

”  I want to provide a contrast of soft materials to a predator , patrick had said  “also to venture more on the endangered species in the future, and hopefully show how fragile some species are and how close they are to extinction “

Magnum opened its third Magnum Pleasure Store at SM Seaside City in Cebu, Philippines, last November .

It’s a first of its kind artwork that pushes the boundaries of paper cutting. The project took 80 hours to cut papers, 3 days to paint the layers and 1 day to add buffer between the layers so the depth will be more pronounced. Each paper color is precisely matched to a specific topping found at the Magnum Pleasure Store and represents the myriad of customized pleasures found in Magnum Cebu.

Got Old Books ? They can get new lives as home utilities .

Any Engineer would tell you , the most efficient ways of recycling paper are either leave it degrade or to incinerated it.  But now Artists and designers are  finding innovative ways to re-purpose old paper and books that may no longer be relevant. So far, we’ve seen books transformed into Japanese lanterns, sculptures and even mini-houses cut entirely from vintage books you can now  add tableware to that list.

After experimenting with three-dimensional paper objects started in 2009, this  formerly Swedish graphic designer and bookbinder Cecilia Levy  now works full time as an dependant art creator; re-purposing old paper materials into intricate and stunting art works.

Cecilia Levy creates exquisite paper plates, bowls and natural forms using small pieces of paper taken from comic books and vintage volumes. Her art work are of an exquisite variant as they range from coloured bowls to flower bulbs to tea cups.

 


ausquerry4Levy focus on the inherent delicacy of paper, and leaves the original stains and discolourations of the sheets on her works as a testament to her starting material history.  Her objects are created using papier-mâché techniques, and are not varnished afterwards, to retain the emphasis on the paper itself.
