Dustin Yellin stunning visulas under layers of Bajillian glass

featuring series of paints resin artistic stories, behind thickly layered glass panels, painted or collaged with a riot of images that coalesce into shape-shifting narrative scenes, human figures, or isolated natural forms.

For Yellin, these projects are interconnected, as his description of Pioneer Works exemplifies:

“For me, it’s a sculpture. It’s just like you’re working in layers you’re seeing through, whether it’s layers of glass or layers of people, and eventually all those layers are in harmony and in unison to sort of make something like this possible.” Layers define Yellin’s practice.

Dustin Yellin is as known for his image-rich sculptures as he is for his entrepreneurship, reflected in his contemporary art hub, Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, his magazine of artist interviews, Intercourse, and his work in his own studio and running a (now closed) commercial gallery.

City of Flowers! Cai Guo-Qiang creates daytime explosion for the city of Florence

City of Flowers in the Sky is inspired by Botticelli’s Renaissance masterpiece Primavera. In about ten minutes, using the sunlit sky as canvas, nearly 50,000 customized fabricated fireworks  shoot out smokes resembling thousands of flowers from the Renaissance. As a generous gift to Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, the explosion builds new memories in its name.

City of Flowers in the Sky begins with “Thunder”, and follows with six acts including “God of the West Wind and Goddess of the Land”, “The birth of Flora”, “Venus”, “Three Graces”, “Spiritual Garden” and “Red Lily”.

contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang  ignites the daytime explosion event City of Flowers in the Sky on Piazzale Michelangelo overlooking the city of Florence, the event was organized in collaboration with the municipality of Florence. It will also mark the opening of the solo exhibition Flora Commedia: Cai Guo-Qiang at the Uffizi, which will open its doors to the public on November 20th until February 17th 2019.

Following the artist’s realization of the daytime explosion event Black Ceremony in Doha in 2011, to Elegy on the Huangpu River in Shanghai in 2014, City of Flowers in the Sky is his largest and most complex to date. The artist first drew hundreds of sketches to determine the effect of each product and every scene of the fireworks. A team from Liuyang, the Chinese town of fireworks, specifically developed and produced the explosives in accordance with the artist’s drawings, also generating the technical programming based on Cai’s sketches.

For City of Flowers in the Sky, Cai Guo-Qiang created a 24-meter color gunpowder artwork on handmade hemp paper in an attempt to evince the ambience and framework of the daytime firework in the gunpowder drawing, which in turn became the finale of the ten rooms of the solo exhibition Flora Commedia on view at the Uffizi. The project is realized in collaboration with two Italian local fireworks companies.

the sky of Florence is suddenly filled with the roar of rolling “Thunder,” followed by a rush of violent, thrashing silver flashes and smoke colorful columns, as though “God of the West Wind and Goddess of the Land” were playfully resisting the temptation of the opposite sex, and finally merge into one harmony with the birth of Flora. In the following minutes, an upsurge of multicolor explosions covers the sky hundreds of meters above.

the viewer intuits that this is the appearance of Flora, Goddess of flowers and spring—bearing life, nurturing, and flourishing energy. Then colorful smoke spurts, and a large sheet of white cascading fireworks drifts gently downwards, 150 meters above the viewer. Black, white and red smoke weave and tumble to give way to the apparition of “Venus.” Large streaks of pure, white willow fireworks drift downward, interwoven with hints of pink and budding yellow—countless hanging threads—the “Three Graces,” paragons of Renaissance beauty. Immediately after follows the “Spiritual Garden” rendered by shooting smoke that resembles blossoms in white and black. At the finale, lusters of the city’s symbol, “Lily,” converge into a magnificent red cloud.

Artist unveils intractive face for British tudor monarch

The Queen’s House, Greenwich has unveiled a major new installation ; using digital scans of Elizabeth’s portraits and the electrotype cast of her effigy, as well as descriptions by her contemporaries, the installation is a chillingly lifelike recreation of Elizabeth I.

Positioned directly opposite the Armada Portrait and suspended in isolation on surveillance mirror, the installation places both the aging and ageless Elizabeth in dialogue. Through this careful juxtaposition, explores the different sides of the queen, both real and imagined, and grapples with notions of mortality, the manipulation of truth, political propaganda and the extent to which female power is tied to appearance and youth.

Commissioned by  acclaimed British mixed media artist, Mat Collishaw, “The  The Mask of Youth” , responds directly to one of the most important paintings in the Museum’s collection, the iconic and powerful Armada Portrait of Elizabeth I.

The Armada Portrait commemorates the most famous conflict of Elizabeth’s reign (1558–1603), the Spanish Armada’s failed attempt to invade England in July and August 1588. Despite being painted shortly after the invasion when the Queen was almost fifty-five, the painting depicts a woman who looks considerably younger. Inspired by this idealised image of the Tudor Queen, Collishaw has collaborated with leading special effects designers using cutting-edge technology to create a stand-alone animatronic mask which approximates Elizabeth’s appearance at the age of the portrait’s creation.

Known for his fusion of technology and art, Collishaw brings Elizabeth back to life before her audience. By leaving the animatronics that facilitate her movements deliberately exposed at the back of her head, the artist suggests that behind Elizabeth’s public persona, her every movement was carefully controlled. Beneath the surface and behind her mask, she is busy making decisions and calculations to which no one else is privy.

Inspired by historic art throughout his career, Collishaw has long been fascinated by the Armada Portrait and its function as a political statement that emphasises the sovereignty and ‘agelessness’ of a queen who in reality was middle aged, unmarried and heirless. Whilst Elizabeth’s portraits were designed to flatter, they also highlight her understanding of the fact that her public image could be used to suggest her power and authority. As a woman of intelligence, she used this tool to help overcome the cultural prejudices she faced due to her gender and to advertise her virtues, skills and competence as a female head of state.

Mat Collishaw’s Mask of Youth is on display at the Queen’s House from 3 October 2018 – 3 February 2019.

Gateways features four uniquely shaped doorways clad in c

featuring four non-symmetrical polyhedrons ( 4×4 with spaces inbetween )  covered entirely with tiles of different colourations. The Gateways is a one of many installations opening at Granary Square, in King’s Cross London for the London annual design exhibition. Called the Designjunction  the trade and design show is an annual in London.

Created out of regular bathroom and kitchen tiles, Gateways makes a statement about the history of ceramics use in architecture ;   highlighting the importance of ceramics in big monumental  projects in history, and potentials for future building designs. The project  was a collaboration between Turkishceramics and London designer  Adam Nathaniel Furman

originbbal

Gateways was the headline item of the BBC evening news’ coverage of the London Design Festival, as well as being featured prominently in the Guardian, Telegraph, Times, and numerous other media outlets. It was also shared to a very great degree on Social Media.

“…ceramics are materials you could use in every situation,they are wonderful you can create patterns and use in all types of different colours; affordably, simply, cheaply and also use them outside.”    Adam says on  his choice of materials.

Adam teaches, and practises architecture in London and the US. and with Gateways,  seeks with his colourful new direction, to inspire the use more use of tiles which goes beyond the kitchen splash-backs and the bathroom floor-floors ; and add a little colour in  and fun into architecture design ideas.

Other of his works has been exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Milan, Rome, Eindhoven, Minneapolis, Portland, & Glasgow,

Dutchbeach art installation sees massive symmetric designs around the Netherlands

 

massive temporary geoglyphs dot the beaches  along the north sea; in the Netherlands.  featuring motifs of plants; and human portraits escalated to huge dominating designs. they are mostly of several feet in length and made very close to sea reachable alone by high tides.

  I love the idea of temporary art because all things in life are temporary. I grew up on the beach where I lived during the summer. I have always been drawing on the beach using materials I found at the there. 6 years ago I started using a rake. This way I could make the drawings much bigger.” it’s creative artist have said.

each beach art design takes him an average of 4hours; scraping and shaping the semiwet sands with his rake. Dutchbeachart had started out with a DIY rig to take pictures of his works from above ground.

mounting  a GoPro on a kite he was able to capture lot of his early design until graduating into drone photos. He is inspired by tattoo artists, street art and geometry.

David Moreno crafts dynamic Minimalist structures from wires.

A combination of wires, and  light wood and seem to hang free, these make up a series of wire-frame structures by  digital artist David Moreno. Seeking to examine the workings of “what make up” architectural form as whole David had stripped bare  his buildings, created without covering, and leaving the intrinsic support systems exposed; a mesh-up of wires and serially laid out plain wood.

Based in Barcelona, this Spanish digital artist, and architect, found his niche with recreation of contemporary, and classic Roman archs; structures in forms which are  non-linear, a bit  disordered yet minimalist in design direction. This otherwise wire-frame depictions take various forms: Archs, bridges, single and double storey houses. On first glance they seen unplanned and out of pattern, but closer look reveals an intricately layered connection; between each material.

20431620_1743899702569856_5895685928295902822_n

 Creating of most of this , seemly random pictures, and design form took considerable amount of time . Selection process including lots of  3d rendition, and alternatives;  on  the design soft ware ” Auto-desk”.  From which the selection slim out most of his ideas, and the picks lots are then  recreating from wires and wood. David’s structures are of the simplest form yet concealing so many information.

Apple Mac-book 2018 without Keyboards only a large touchpad.

More touch of genius, as he describes it. The next iteration of the Mac-book, maybe 2018? if the current trend of Apple  minimalist innovation continues.   Consumers will finally get the chance to own an iMac , a touch pad computer which would allow for  gesture , hand  control and stencil use.

The laptop is rectangular; unchanged from the other Macs except the entire keyboard area  is now a touch screen. All of its functions are activated by touch, but when the hands are near, a proximity sensor will turn on allowing more functions to be explored.

The biggest draw to this design is it eliminates the complications of the keyboard, which after sustained use could break down.  Another would be it could essentially replace the Microsoft’s draw-pad, cluttering several operations into one notebook.  whether it would gain weight or remain light is yet unknown as the glass would-be considerable heavier than plastic;  used for keyboards.

This was put together by Daniel Brunsteiner , an  Industrial Design Student from Graz, Austria. Daniel has no affiliation with Apple or it’s products is a recipient of two awards for design. 
 ” What if the touch bar on the new Macbook Pro would extend to a full-size touch pad? This question was the driving force on this concept. It would enable a lot of new features while maintaining the fundamental idea behind the MacBook Pro 2016 touch bar, serving as shortcuts and macro functions.” Daniel had written.
Also, since it will be a touch enabled display, it could support the Apple pencil to allow user to finally use it with desktop applications.
Enabling the Apple Pencil to be compatible with the new MacBook Pro,will help creative professionals in their workflow and creates new  applications of the touch pad area. Using the new MacBook Pro with third party software like Adobe Photoshop or Autodesk Sketchbook  will become more powerful than ever before. Packing more functionality into the simple Laptop.
The now widened keyboard area  would become a touch enabled surface which creates new room for possibilities; graphical worlds , animation and calligraphy, even security. And, still it — bar area– could still be available for shortcuts and function keys.
The Taptic Engine system would control how the system perceive touch , depth , pressure and speed. To give the user the feel of physical buttons, emulating a scroll  wheel or sliders. This can also support the visually impaired people, with Braille , amplified touch and sounds to emulate the feedback required to read it.
