Infinity Room – part of Artnivo’s ‘40 Meters 4 Walls 8 Cubes‘ exhibition in collaboration with Istanbul Biennial at Zorlu Performing Art Center – the installation attempts to merge across the threshold “between the simulacrum space created by the projection technology, and the physical space where the viewer stands. The results are a near boundless experimentation of perception of place and self, an artistic parallel to more consumer-aimed technologies like Oculus and Microsoft’s RoomAlive system looming on the VR horizon."

I just love them. "LouLou & Tummie is a Dutch illustration duo that spend their days building an ever expanding empire of colourful graphics and characters on paper, walls, interiours, on tv or in the form of toys and plush." They just finished a bubblegum stickers project, suits their skills so perfectly. Also love their papertoys project. They have a very cute website. Their location: Tilburg. Couldn't find any more written details about the duo but their pages have plenty of visuals. Curious? Browse here.
You'll LOVE these designs. They are made by Muxxi : "Muxxi is an illustrator and artist from Guatemala city, she loves to create fantastic and colorful places filled with quirky creatures. Spontaneity, freedom and joy are always at the heart of her work." And on her website she writes : "Born and based in Guatamala City, Muxxi's unusual characters and creatures have given her a cult following around the world and global brands haven't bee immune to the charmes of her work either. Her quirky images speak of freedom and expressivenss and when she's creating an illo- or even imaginary world - her aim is to spread the joy to whoever sees it." I just adore her work.

llie named Turbo. She was born in New York, but shortly after her parents began traveling around South America, where she lived in seven different countries and went to several English speaking schools. Her love for arts and crafts began at a very early age, her mom says she started drawing when she was two years old and it continued to be her favorite activity through her childhood and teenage years. By the time she decided what to study in college she was 100% sure it had to be in the visual arts. She studied architecture in Chile for a couple of years before graduating as a graphic artist in Mexico." She's multi-talented makes ceramics, cute stamps and creates fabric, makes beautiful paintings on stones, works with leather...all natural as you can say...and you can visit her blog at http://www.geninnesart.com/, I totally love her website, so Geninne.

Klaus Pinter explores the potential of the space around us with his fantastical floating installations. Usually suspended in mid air, his giant artworks are at once light, fluid, soft, and mechanical. They are also incredibly bizarre, created using a combination of different textures and inflatable materials like plastic and nylon. Many who see his works describe them as curious flying machines and angelic cocoons, speaking to the artist’s ability to alter our perceptions, even the way we see famous landmarks from the Pantheon in Rome to the Seine waterway in Paris. For his installation exhibited at the Pantheon in 2002, titled “Rebounds”, the artist rolled two huge spheres into the extravagant Ancient Roman building, where his work collided art with history and culture. One sphere was placed on the ground and another was mounted so that it appeared to float in the choir, where the reflection of the building appeared as distorted as an M.C. Escher drawing. This placement was a choice made by the artist in reference to philosopher Plato’s ideology, who speculated on the nature of the physical world and human beings. In his biography, Pinter shares that from the beginning of creating his first “pneumatic” structures, the inventor in him was inspired, if not assimilated, by the poet. And throughout his career he has carried on in this vein with consistency and rigor, in forms that are continually renewed." Nice right? More --> here. Oh, and have a great weekend!
spatial practice has created ‘glowing trees’. the installation seeks to transform the oval atrium of the IFC mall by developing a collection of large trees that wish to catch the attention of potential users. the site’s position is a pivotal transport intersection and its mixed-use program is a point of reference for many who pass through it on a daily basis. the trees’ kinetic motion, as it moves up and down, allows for surprising effects as the pleated fabric comes to life. a spontaneous reaction is further supported by each of the tree’s playful materiality, striated color palette, and interior reflective, that lets users gaze and capture the moment."
