A few years ago we talked about a similar project by another artist and it was about Katerina Kamprani and her impossible objects. Now, from Katerina’s Greece, we move to Holland, more precisely to Amsterdam, to talk about Bas van Wieringen who, with his unusual sculptures, manages to leave the spectator with no problems.
Bas takes everyday objects, like a nail, toilet paper or cigarettes and slightly modifies them, removing their primary function, but making them a work of art. After all, when an object becomes nothing, it can also be anything.
Thus, the initial nail is no longer used to hang a painting but goes in and out of the wall, the toilet paper rolls back into another roll and the cigarettes become unusable because they have the filter on all ends.

Despite being rivals on the market, the relationship between Mercedes Benz and BMW is so healthy that it is difficult to call them opponents. After the announcement of a possible collaboration for the realization of an electric city car, in fact, to leave everyone amazed was the spot, ironic but heartfelt, that BMW wanted to dedicate to the CEO of Mercedes Benz Dieter Zetsche just retired.
The clip tells the story of Zetsche’s last day at the company, including greetings, handshakes, group selfie and the last trip home in his impeccable company Mercedes that leaves him in front of his garage. And it is there that BMW throws his funny hit at his rival-not rival. When the slider opens, in fact, we see the double of Zetsche coming out in a BMW i8 Roadster accompanied by the ironic phrase “Free at last”.
But the spot doesn’t end here, BMW after the laugh, dedicates to the opponent heartfelt thanks for the years of stimulating competition that they shared.
“Thank you, Dieter Zetsche, for so many years of inspiring competition.”
With the world cup around the corner, the kick-off is set for Friday, June 7 at 21:00 with the match between France and South Korea, emotions and expectations become higher and higher. Women’s football is finally attracting the attention it deserves by registering a large audience, but above all, a sense of belonging.
In this panorama of excitement, Nike is still playing a fundamental role and yesterday launched a new short-film full of adrenaline. The protagonist of Dream Further, this is the name of the campaign, is the little Makena Cook that from the tunnel is catapulted, in the company of players like the Dutch Lieke Martens, in the middle of the field. To the sound of a “you are not done” from a simple mascot becomes the shadow of her idols, from the lawn to the changing rooms, from the shooting to present the jerseys to the PlayStation led by the wise hands of Neymar Jr., from the arrival in the plane alongside the Chinese footballer Wang Shuang in force at the PSG to the technical area of Barcelona hand in hand with the former English footballer Alex Scott, this time in the role of coach of players like Philippe Coutinho and Gerard Pique.
5 minutes of emotions lived alongside a 10-year-old girl who dreams of the stages already trodden by her favorite stars because football is inclusion and dreams are dreams.
Don’t change your dream. Change the world.

It seems that this summer Netflix doesn’t want to leave us alone even a second. After announcing the release of Stranger Things 3 and La Casa de Papel 3, we received the news that the German series Dark, whose first season aired in 2017 has made a lot of people crazy, is going to come back sooner than we think, that is on June 21.
With the reconfirmation of the second season was also released the first trailer that does not bode well. We find again Jonas, the protagonist played by Louis Hofmann, trying to bring back the normality to Winden and solve the space/time problems that afflict the city and its inhabitants for generations. But if on the one hand there are the “good ones”, on the other hand there are those who try to use this situation for their own purposes, like the priest Noah who will try to provoke the Apocalypse.
In addition, the streaming giant has confirmed that this will be the second cycle of a trilogy that should end with Dark 3 in 2020.
Hsiao-Ron Cheng (鄭曉嶸) is a Taiwanese digital illustrator born in 1986 who started working as a freelance illustrator in 2012, attracting international attention. In the same year, her work was selected for the Young Illustrator Award.
In this series of portraits the characters are depicted in hyperrealistic and highly detailed ways, but at the same time they are ethereal and evanescent thanks to the use of pale pastel colours. The emotion that transpires from each image is rendered with great credibility, each subject immediately conveys its state of mind to the viewer.
The eyes of the female characters are empty and lost in the void as if a perpetual sadness populates their thoughts: all this contributes to make elegant every design of Hsiao-Ron.
