Hikari Shimoda

Hikari Shimoda was born in Nagano, Japan in 1984 and studied at the Kyoto Saga University of Art. With children as a motif she, as she explains in her own words, “pick(s) up their warped attitude or feeling toward the outer world and express(es) it through their physical body which has not been balanced yet. Through their unstable presence, I can express deep feelings I have inside, such as grief, alienation, and love.” (via)

Tyler Jackson

' The Enemy Army Figures by Tyler Jackson may form a fictional army, but their basis is very much real. The figures are all unique, but rather than choosing an entirely fictional setting for the Enemy Army, Tyler modeled them as unique characters based on his friends. That probably would make these figures friendly at heart, yet somehow making them look sinister enough to be the “Enemy Army.” Characteristic personalities of the figures are driven by interests of the people they were modeled after. The sculptures have each been crafted from Sculpey, painted and mounted on a plexiglass shelf. A total of 45 were created, and they’ve all sold out. ' (via Randommization)

24H Architects

24H Architects have designed some houses in Nieuw Leyden, which is in the north of the city of Leiden, in The Netherlands. ' Within the urban plan of Nieuw Leyden, 24H Architecture design two ecological houses. The building block consists of 18 houses, designed by different architects. There are no regulations of the beauty commission, so the future owners are free to design their house, as long as it fits within the provided building envelope. The density of the area is high and the width of the street is minimal. To provide its inhabitants with maximal daylight during the day, a so-called ‘canyon’ is introduced. The canyon flows through the house and encloses the stairs. It’s orientated in a way that light falls to the lower floors. The walls of the canyon are used to divide the house into the necessary spaces. No other walls are placed thus the canyon is present in every room. Where desired, the canyon becomes transparent and filters the daylight. Where needed, it’s closed and allows toilets and bathrooms to be placed behind its walls. The facade is an echo of the canyon. Where the canyon is projected, Corten steel is used instead of the certified wood that is applied to the rest of the facade. ' (via Contemporist)

Jim Kazanjian

" I am interested in a kind of ‘entropic’ image”an image that has the capacity to de-familiarize itself. My current work is an attempt to unravel the photograph and play with established notions of time and space, notwithstanding our understanding of what gives things context. Through fragmentation and re-composition of the photographic space, the non-linear nature of reading the image is folded in on itself. The structure of the photograph is unwound and reshuffled. This reshaping is an iterative process that spurs a generation of something altogether different; something ineffable. " - Jim Kazanjian

Maison Martin Margiela

" For SS 2011 Maison Martin Margiela it was the message of 2-dimensionality. The models transformed into paper dolls. Our eyebrows raised and eyes opened wide to register the surreal trompe l’oeil designs as they made their way down the runway. Continue...

David Bowers

David Bowers, born 1956 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and graduated from art school in Pittsburgh in 1979. He began working as a staff artist at various studios in Pittsburgh. Two years later, David began teaching at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where he lectured for ten years. This job was perfect for Bowers at the time due to the short hours in the classroom. These short workdays enabled a lot of free time to perfect his painting technique before he entered the illustration field.
