Christopher Payne specializes in the documentation of America’s vanishing architecture and industrial landscape. Trained as an architect, he is fascinated by design, assembly, and the built form. His first book, New York’s Forgotten Substations: The Power Behind the Subway (Princeton Architectural Press, 2002), offered dramatic, rare views of the behemoth machines that are hidden behind modest facades in New York City. His second book, Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals (MIT Press, 2009), which includes an essay by the renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks, was the result of a seven-year survey of America’s vast and largely shuttered state mental institutions. Payne’s new book, North Brother Island: The Last Unknown Place in New York City (Fordham University Press, 2014), explores an uninhabited island of ruins in the East River. Payne’s photographs invoke the former grandeur of the site over different seasons, capturing hints of buried streets and infrastructure now reclaimed by nature, while also providing a unique glimpse into a city’s future without people.

” My artistic aim is to show a different perception of everyday urban architecture and the environment around us, what we can construct with a boundless imagination.” – Thomas Lamadieu

‘A house on display at the All-Russian Exhibition Center in Moscow is built to resemble a typical European summerhouse with one exception — it’s upside down. Visitors will discover that even the curtains and contents of the fridge all have been installed upside down, appearing in an unusual perspective.’ Link here.

Nicola Samorì is an artist steeped in the tradition of 17th century Italian painting and sculpture, but with a determinedly contemporary stance. His allusions to the inspiration of Old Masters reveals how Samorì shares with them an idea of creating something new out of what already exists by means of artistic transformation. Works such as his figurative busts and sculptures made from wax push the tradition almost as far as possible from the idealized vision of Ancient Greece and the Renaissance to become deconstructed representations of classical sculpture. Nicola Samorì was born in 1977 in Forli, Italy, and lives and works in Bagnacavallo. He has exhibited widely both internationally and in the UK including solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Tubingen, Germany and Santa Maria delle Croci, Ravenna. He featured in the Italian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale. (via Rosenfeld Porcini)

” I am interested in the tension between reality and representation of existence. I feel inclined to talk about the relationship between obsessions and detailed observance. The works that I do are project based which uses a process of reconstruction and fusion to examine the chaos of the regular city life. I like to experiment with different media like painting, photography, sculpture and video. A choice of media for particular idea is the important part in the process of my work. I always think about the control and releasing point, static and moment. My research area is specific everyday moments in which the consumer world repeats itself. The idea of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction of space; in a way tries to reduce the complication of visualizing my work. I want my work to lend visibility to such minutiae that often tend to get overlooked in the course of grandiose representations and this traumatic mark to be sensual, perfected, mechanical, a controlled gesture.” – Rajesh Kargutkar
