The Voxel, the perfect quarantine cabin

The Voxel, the perfect quarantine cabin

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Design

Over the past few months we have often talked about places where we would have liked to spend the last year, such as the villa that disappears into the Swedish landscape or the resort on Lake Maggiore that combines innovation and tradition. All dreamy places, but never really designed to cope with something like a pandemic.
The Voxel, on the other hand, is a cabin created with the aim of creating a place where you can spend 14 days in quarantine, completely isolated from everything and everyone. 

The Voxel is a project by students on the Master’s course in Advanced Ecological Buildings and Biocities at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, developed over 5 months and finally built in the Collserola natural park, just outside Barcelona. 

The project is particularly innovative not only in terms of its purpose, but also of the method and materials used in its construction. For The Voxel, in fact, cross-laminated timber was used and the raw material was taken from the surrounding forest.
In this sense the cabin represents not only an immediate solution to the current health crisis, but also a response to the problem of climate change. 

The Voxel measures 12 square metres and inside it you can find everything you need to live comfortably for 14 days: there is a bed facing a window, toilets, a kitchen and a space to work and relax. The presence of three solar panels on the roof allows for uninterrupted electricity supply, even though the cabin is isolated and far from inhabited areas. 

We hope you don’t need it, but The Voxel may be the solution to future quarantines, in which case visit the dedicated website to find out more.

AdeY’s shots challenges the perception of the human body

AdeY’s shots challenges the perception of the human body

Federica Cimorelli · 2 weeks ago · Photography

AdeY is a Swedish-British experimental artist who, through photography, highlights the vulnerability, loneliness and strength of his subjects, capturing those small moments of social oppression, isolation, anxiety and depression that seem to play a central role in the human condition. Each of his images portrays the body in its purest form and creates a non-sexualised representation of humankind, based on acceptance.

With a background in performance, choreography and contemporary dance, AdeY focuses on differences in physics, gender, race and sexuality, but not only. The artist challenges the perception of the body in many ways, through an inner and outer analysis of the world.
Her art recognises that not only do people change in relation to their environment, but that the environment adapts to them accordingly. In her photographs the human body with its shapes, aspects and three-dimensionality moves through space and studies the balance and physics of the world around it.

See a selection of his shots here and follow him on Instagram. AdeY is represented by The Little Black Gallery London. Many of his artworks are available online from www.girlsgirlsgirls.org and www.boysboysboys.org

Peter Kaaden’s explicit NSFW photographs

Peter Kaaden’s explicit NSFW photographs

Giulia Pacciardi · 1 week ago · Photography

In Peter Kaaden‘s photographs, not much space is left to the imagination.
His images, strongly and deliberately explicit, portray different parts of the body with clear and erotic close-ups, sometimes, a little bit disgusting.

Nipples, lips, butts, legs, bellies, hands, eyes, breasts and arms are the only protagonists of shots that represent the most real nudity, without any censorship.
Censorship that, although it may seem the opposite, is something that he appreciates and conceives, but not in modern means of artistic communication where a nipple cannot be shown while any other kind of violence is allowed.

His art, as he himself tells, shows something with which each of us coexists, more or less in the same way, in a brazen way.
His imaginary has earned him, among others, several publications in magazines such as Dazed, Schön, Rolling Stones and GQ but also many collaborations with fashion brands.

Here you will find a selection of his photographs, here, instead, all the others.

Humans and Landscapes, Ekayyne’s project blends nature and the human body.

Humans and Landscapes, Ekayyne’s project blends nature and the human body.

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

Brussels-based artist and graphic designer Ekayyne uses his Instagram profile as a stage to show the works that make up the Humans and Landscapes project. As you can imagine from the title, the artist’s graphics blend in an original way landscape, from white and endless beaches to flowering meadows, and body parts. 

The process of creation begins with the phase of searching for images that take place on the Internet, especially on Tumbler. Only once this first part has been completed does one move on to assembling the images, looking for common elements such as lines or textures. 

The peculiarity of Ekayyne’s graphics is that the union of the two images is not hidden, on the contrary, it is often made even more evident by the contrast between shapes and colors. 

In any case, the result is always surprising, in which the lines of the sand dunes become those of a woman’s body, the skin turns into sand and a nightdress turns into frothy waves of the sea. 

Discover some of Ekayyne’s works in our gallery.
