Ken Kelleher, when digital sculptures invade public spaces

Ken Kelleher, when digital sculptures invade public spaces

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

Digital sculptures of American artist Ken Kelleher look like twisted tangles. These are placed in public spaces and are able to astonish the viewer, altering the actual spatial perception of where they are. Each rendering has gigantic dimensions and seems in strong contrast with the surrounding environment of galleries, gardens, and squares as if to underline the pop-exuberant character of the artistic operation. Ken states that:

“There’s an element of surprise when you create something that has never before existed in the world. Sculpture for me is an inquiry into the deep mysterious nature of things. What does it say to you? Where will it love? What is its larger context of being?”

With his works, he wants to convey “surprise and joy”, inspired by abstract sculptors like David Smith and Anthony Caro. Digital art becomes the most effective means to give life to his fervid imagination that uses elementary forms and distorts them, inflates them and alters them, giving sculpture the ability to put in continuous dialogue matter and form, light and shadow, time, space and content.

With his work, Ken wonders what it means to create, whether it is digital or tangible art, and what are the barriers to break down.

Nuances Selection, the street art intervention by NEVERCREW

Nuances Selection, the street art intervention by NEVERCREW

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

The duo NEVERCREW has created Nuances Selection, a huge mural in Aalborg (Denmark).

The duo is made up of artists Christian Rebecchi and Pablo Togni who have been creating fantastic works since 1996. Their art focuses on the relationship between man and nature, between time and space, trying to convey to the viewer the feeling of being part of a system.  For this reason, their works are always designed according to the place that will host them.

Nuances Selection follows the structure of the landscape, creating a narrative that in an original way is based on ideal color cards. Their technique mixes a simple graphic trait with hyperrealistic and complex elements.

The choice to represent whales is related to what these animals will represent. Something near, known but at the same time far that over the years has become a symbol of a battle against pollution, the power of industry, dehumanization.

Black Mirror returns in December with Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

Black Mirror returns in December with Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

The super famous Black Mirror series will be back in December with a creative proposal by the giant Netflix, it is Choose-Your-Own-Adventure, which will allow the viewer to choose between more possibilities to develop a story. Interactive content will not be available only for adults, but also for children: an example is Puss in Books, which allows the public to choose the villain of the episode and eventually to return to choose another option, once the story ended.

Black Mirror is one of the shows that best lends itself to this type of experimentation and will allow various storytelling options, which will surely make even more intriguing the fifth season out in December.

Sofia Bonati tells women on abstract backgrounds

Sofia Bonati tells women on abstract backgrounds

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

Sofia Bonati is an Argentinian artist who with her illustrations manages to capture various types of female personalities. The beauty of her designs is completed with a distinctive feature, that is the constant use of abstract backgrounds such as storm clouds, dizzying labyrinths, and floral motifs. Each woman is depicted alone, to underline its uniqueness; what particularly strikes is the artist’s great ability to be able to faithfully represent the facial expressions of her protagonists and their shades.

Graphite and gypsum, paint and felt-tip pens are indispensable tools for you to achieve the desired result. The strong and distinctive expressions on the face of each woman suggest that the characters have control of their environment, rather than being included by them. In a recent collaboration with Society6, many of the artist’s works were animated by the glitch artist Chris McDaniel, which enhances the visual impact of these wonderful creations.

Short video for Breakfast – Mirror City, if the city were closed in a kaleidoscope

Short video for Breakfast – Mirror City, if the city were closed in a kaleidoscope

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

The kaleidoscope has always been one of my favorite objects, and the video Mirror City made by photographer Michael Shainblum recreates the classic effect of the kaleidoscope but realized with the time-lapse shooting of streets and views of some of the most famous American cities.

At the beginning of the video you will be able to recognize them, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles. Then, however, the images speed up and the mirror effect multiplies. Michael plays with the shapes of the buildings, with the traffic lights and the lines of the streets.

To get to the final aspect of the video, the San Francisco photographer worked for about four months, an extremely long period, but the result was definitely worth it.

“I wanted to create a video that was completely out of the norm. I wanted to showcase something unique and artistic, which takes Timelapse photography into a more abstract direction.”
