Emptyland by Jaume Montserrat

Such beautiful illustrations. These are created by the Barcelona-based illustrator Jaume Montserrat, who’s passionate with nature, society and traveling. He draws trying to bend those three worlds.

Jaume found inspiration for his project ‘Emptyland’, when flying home from South America to Spain. He fell asleep and imagined waking up on an island where he lives for 29 days with other animals.

He explains: “On this island, there was only one animal from each specimen (kind of like Noah’s Ark). All of them were empty, asexual and immortal. They didn’t need to hunt, nor were they scared of being hunted – so there was a perfect symbiosis.”

He and the wildlife lived free from worries in this dream, and that empty paradise is what sparked these images.

De Burgemeester in Hoofddorp by Studioninedots

This extraordinary wooden staircase is found in this office lobby in the Dutch town of Hoofddorp. It’s created by Amsterdam architects Studioninedots.

They were challenged with renovating an entire 1970s office building. The architects began by removing an existing staircase and enlarging the space around it to create a void that visually connects a communal area on the ground floor with the levels above.

The staircase acts as the focal point of this large atrium and was made by cladding a steel structure in plywood sheets to create a series of bridges and access points to the various floors.

“The staircase as a tool for communication, lends the building a collective identity,” the architects says. “As a vertical lobby that offers views of all floors, it tells occupants that they are part of a larger world.”

Love it!

Special construction method has been developed and used across the collection. Multiple layers of leather scrap pieces are added on the last and subsequently sanded down to achieve the final shape and unique colour pattern of the shoe.

Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown

Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 1 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 2 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 3 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 4 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 5 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 6 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 7 Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown 8

Artist Rogan Brown creates intricate sculptural forms reminiscent of microorganisms, plant life, and topographical charts by deftly cutting patterns in layer after layer of paper. A single work can take upward of five months to complete, and just like the organic forms he seeks to emulate the piece evolves as he works without a preconceived direction or plan.

“I want to communicate my fascination with the immense complexity and intricacy of natural forms and this is why the process behind my work is so important. Each sculpture is hugely time consuming and labour-intensive and this work is an essential element not only in the construction but also in the meaning of each piece. The finished artefact is really only the ghostly fossilized vestige of this slow, long process of realisation. I have chosen paper as a medium because it captures perfectly that mixture of delicacy and durability that for me characterizes the natural world”, Rogan Brown says.

“I’m Google” by Dina Kelberman – A Visual Exploration of Google Image Search

I’m Google is an ongoing digital art project by Baltimore artist Dina Kelberman that documents digital patterns through non-artistic photography found on Google Image Search. Note, that every single image share a slight visual characteristic with the image before it.

“I’m Google is an ongoing tumblr blog in which batches of images and videos that I cull from the internet are compiled into a long stream-of-consciousness. The batches move seamlessly from one subject to the next based on similarities in form, composition, color, and theme. [... ] I feel that my experience wandering through Google Image Search and YouTube hunting for obscure information and encountering unexpected results is a very common one. My blog serves as a visual representation of this phenomenon. This ability to endlessly drift from one topic to the next is the inherently fascinating quality that makes the internet so amazing,” Dina Kelberman says.

Dynamic Home for Bees by Atelierd

Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-1 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-2 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-3 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-4 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-5

Sitting at 215 square feet, atelierd created a great looking “Bee Pavilion” in Alsace, France, with hexagonal structures. These geometric pieces are covered by a roof that allows breeze yet blocks direct sunlight out of the middle portion.

Overall, the area is dynamic – and not to mention visually stimulating. Each pod has a unique core with various textures, geometry and colors. Some are left with nothing inside so as to allow some visual transparency, and others are created with the idea of a place for the bees. Built in 2012, the home is transformable to accommodate humans that might like to repurpose some pieces as furniture and enjoy the natural buzzing surrounding the pavilion.

Colorfully patterned house showcases 30,000 bottle caps – by Russian Olga Kostina

A Russian woman named Olga Kostina lives in a small village called Karmarchaga, where she recently put her plastic bottle cap collection to good use on the facade of her home.

Taking a whole ton of nails and a hammer in her arsenal, Olga attached her vision of caps to the small wooden home’s exterior. It’s like one giant mosaic piece, with geometric quilt-type patterns all over. There are even some furry creatures created on the different sides as well.

Well done, Olga!
