Julia Randall . Blown, 2011-2012

Pretendía hacer una mini intro pero lo que tiene escrito en la web me parece tan perfecto, tan bonito que ni resumo, ni traduzco, ni nada. Tal cual.

Bubblegum initially connotes innocent, cheeky pleasure, yet the fragile skin of gum also points to the susceptibility of the body, and the dreaded passage of time. Bubble gum is an insignificant, disposable material, and the pleasure taken from its flavor is fleeting. The bubble is a vessel that holds our breath, for a brief moment, in a physical form. Seen as a group, the inflating/ deflating bubble imagery is a visual manifestation of breathing. They are decidedly anthropomorphic, and can appear abject, fragile, and as vulnerable as the human body.

Gravity Defying Photography | Li Wei

Las fotos de Li Wei ya son tan conocidas como el gato que toca el piano o… Bueno, tantas comparaciones internetiles típicas como queráis poner. Pero son de esas fotos que no por verlas más pierden su magia. Sabes que hay truco, sabes que hay photoshop, cables y mil trampas más, pero si aun así tienen tanta fuerza es que el fotógrafo ha conseguido y con creces su objetivo.

V&A Chairs by Tomás Alonso

Mezcla y contraste de materiales, tubos de metal en colores vivos junto a madera maciza de fresno, mucha asimetría y un toque ligeramente desequilibrado. Las sillas V&A Chairs de Tomás Alonso lo tienen todo para gustarme y mucho.

Bryce Wymer . Time lapse Sketchbooks

Ya lo he dicho mucha veces y me repito. Ver crear a un artista del ámbito que sea, es de las cosas que más me gustan y más placer me produce. Y ahora toca hablar de Bryce Wymer.

REAL-f . Exceed the real

Siendo el producto japonés ya debería dejar de sorprendernos un poco, pero algo tan tonto como lo puede ser una máscara realista (la madre de las máscaras realistas), nos deja en esa situación de no saber como clasificar o asimilar el tema. Arte, fetichismo, arte, fetichismo… Se me pasan demasiadas cosas por la cabeza con la posibilidad de tener la cara de alguien en versión máscara con este nivel de detalle. Cosas buenas. Cosas malas. Cosas. Ahora, lo de tener una máscara de tu propia cara, ponértela, mirarte al espejo y… YA. Creo que si lo sigo pensando entraré en un bucle infinito y me explotará la cabeza.

Eo, me lo he pensado. Quiero 10 de mi cara y me hago un “come to daddy”, oh si.

Pärlans Konfektyr Stockholm
