The Universal Now: Big Ben & Thames 1961 / 1982 - Cut and folded vintage bookplates 14.63 x 13.88 in

Abigail Reynolds

Abigail Reynolds is an artist based in London and has been exhibiting her artwork around the world since Y2K, remember that mess? Anyway, Reynolds latest work is constructed from primarily from found book images to construct a new composition. I really enjoy the way she plays with color and composition as she allows her work to break free from the confines of the square or rectangle.

Luke Jerram’s Deadly Glass Sculptures

Smallpox, HIV and an 'Untitled Future Mutation'

The thing I love most about these glass sculptures is my response when I realize what they are. At first glance I see beautiful 3-D glass sculptures that have been crafted with perfection. When I realize what they represent, I get a feeling of eeriness, awe and curiosity. Luke Jerram creates beautiful sculptures of really “ugly” viruses.

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with art, technology and engineering. The creativity and critical thinking involved in each of these areas is gets me fired up and ready to build something – especially if it involves fire :-). With that in mind, you might understand why I chose to feature artist Johannes Vogl.  Vogl’s work is quirk, inventive and certainly worth taking a peek at.

Garden of Eden – by wolle

I absolutely love works like this.  These pieces look so minimal while the background process is a bit complex.  This minimalistic imagery focuses attention on some very large and complex issues.  Below is a quote explaining the work.

In this project we focused on the problem of air pollution. Therefore we exhibited eight pedestals, each of which are covered with an airtight Plexiglas box. Via the internet, the latest air pollution levels in the capitals of the G8-countries are obtained and sent to the control system of the installation. Based on this data, the system reproduces these levels artificially and in realtime inside the boxes. As an inidcator, to visualize the quality of the air, we are using lettuce. The lettuce changes in colors and size depending on the conditions it faces, and therefore we get some organic data visualization. Exhibited in showcase-like containers, becomes an object, a sculpture that speaks in nature’s own language about its state.
