Parallel Perspectives, the kaleidoscopic installation by Luftwerk

Parallel Perspectives, the kaleidoscopic installation by Luftwerk

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

Luftwerk, the artistic duo formed by Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, has always been committed to creating immersive installations in which they explore light, color, and perception. Their last effort is called Parallel Perspectives, and it is a site-specific installation designed for McCormick House by the famous architect Mies van der Rohe in 1952.

The two artists started from the modular structure of the McCormick House and reinvented it. Inspired by the house’s impressive use of glass, Petra and Sean also used this material, making it the protagonist of all the installations made in all the spaces of the house. 

Natural light, but also artificial light from lamps and LEDs occupy the spaces, reflecting on colored acrylic panels. If it were possible to shrink and walk among the colored stones of a kaleidoscope, it would probably be like living and immersing in Parallel Perspectives

The installation will be open until 25 August 2019.

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea and his intimate and emotional shots

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea and his intimate and emotional shots

Giulia Guido · 4 days ago · Photography

How great would it be to sneak into other people’s lives? To follow them in their intimacy, safe from being seen? That’s exactly what Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea allows us to do. 

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea, on Instagram as @greyheavens, was born in Ukraine and at the age of three was adopted by a Basque family. His adolescence was spent in different Spanish cities such as Irun, Valladolid and Madrid, until a few years ago he decided to move to London, where he still lives and works today. 
Art in all its forms, from dance to music, has always been part of Aritz’s life, but in the end, photography won du all. 

“There came a time when I knew that I couldn’t do every type of art, I opted to follow Photography as this gave me the freedom to talk about life in a way others could interact with. “

We, as soon as we saw them, fell in love with his shots. 

They are intimate photographs, in which do we see boys, girls, young couples captured in their everyday life, in their private moments, in which every mask falls and the truest feelings remain. 

“I would define my photography as intimate, vulnerable and even psychological, but above all, human.”

Through the works of Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea we sneak into the lives of others, we become invisible spectators, hidden behind doors and windows. We get lost in the melancholic faces and feel all the heaviness of the body and emotions let go. 

Below is a selection of his shots, but to find out more follow him on Instagram

Exploration of femininity in Prue Stent’s photography

Exploration of femininity in Prue Stent’s photography

Buddy · 4 days ago · Photography

Prue Stent is a young Sydney based photographer who knows what femininity is today and shows it to us without too many frills.

She began to investigate the world of photography in adolescence, at sixteen. And in her four photographic projects, a common thread seems to link all her shots: the women. Sarcastic, beautiful, abandoned, surreal, intriguing, a little extravagant. She bows her uses a range of colors to express all the femininity in the world. Soft tones that smell of marshmallows.

Prue says she likes to work spontaneously. And this is perceptible in every shot, which seems like an instinctive game. This helps to experiment, to explore, to reflect on a new beauty linked to the female body that is not an object to be immortalized, but a statue that shows her beauty only when she is left free to act spontaneously.

Ironic and surreal photos by Kostis Fokas

Ironic and surreal photos by Kostis Fokas

Buddy · 15 hours ago · Photography

Kostis Fokas is is a conceptual photographer whose artistic practice revolves around the exploration of the complexities of the human body.

His work focuses on the interplay between youth culture and eroticism and widely reflects aspects of his inner self. He is irreverent, sensual, arrogan, humorous, provocative and energetic.

He was born in Greece, precisely in Athens, where probably growing up among statues of gods and water lilies, he understood that behind the pose of a body there is a world of forms to explore.

Boredom and reality do not interest him and his shots prove it. He knows how to handle the world and his room to his liking. By controlling every color detail, every light source, he creates a shot that is an estrangement from everyday life, that he knows of Tumblr and surrealism.
