Photobucket Photobucket ' The dodecahedral sphere is one of the five so-called Platonic bodies, i.e. a solid that consists of x number of identical faces. The dodecahedron is composed of 12 pentagons. It is a geometric figure, is thus inherent in nature and with a natural in-built harmony. The other 4 platonic bodies are the tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron and the icosahedron. ' - Thorsten Høy Photobucket

Samitaur Tower by Eric Owen Moss

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket The Samitaur Tower is an information tower, constructed at the corner of Hayden Avenue and National Boulevard immediately across from the new Expo light rail line arriving from downtown Los Angeles in June, 2011. That intersection is the primary entry point into the re-developed zone of Culver City. Conceptually, the tower has both introverted and extroverted planning objectives. Internal to the burgeoning site area of new media companies, graphic designers, and general office tenants, the tower will symbolize the advent of this important new urban development, provide a changing art display for local viewing, and offer a variety of graphic content and data on its five screens concerning coming events and current achievements of the tenants who occupy that part of the city. Externally, the tower displays culturally significant content and local event information, along with art and graphic presentations of all sorts available to in-car audiences who pass the site area, traveling on a number of local thoroughfares in the Culver City / West Los Angeles area. In addition to the large number of cars passing the site, the Expo Line has an estimated ridership of 30,000 passengers per day with two local stops several blocks east and west of the site. The presence of the train riders guarantees an enormous daily audience of Tower art viewers, as well as an increase in pedestrians in the area, who will walk past the Tower from the train stops to local businesses.

Roe Ethridge

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Roe Ethridge (American, b. 1969), who studied photography at The College of Art in Atlanta, takes his shoots in “editorial mode,” directly borrowing images already in circulation, including outtakes from his own commercial work. Drawing upon the traditions of descriptive photography and photography as a resource of mass imagery to be duplicated and recombined, the artist orchestrates visual fugues: a plain white plate grabbed from Bed Bath & Beyond’s website is superimposed on a checkered Comme des Garçons scarf; a model dressed in an Alexander McQueen shirt poses against a tripod at Pier 59; two filmic pictures of a Juilliard ballet student were initially published in Vice magazine; a model from the Chanel Spring ’09 fashion show is culled from The New York Times; a pumpkin sticker is shot in close-up view and magnified; a red bag is featured in a corner of the artist’s studio; and a still life displays moldy fruit. Abandoning conventional photographic aesthetics in favor of intentionally inconsistent modes of representation, Ethridge’s pictures acquire their distinct meaning from the salient way they are reshuffled, sequenced, and laid out.

Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket ' The project is located in a neighborhood of Manhattan that is in constant mutation. Many buildings have strong typologies in this area: like the New Museum by SANAA on the next block or the Blue Tower by Bernard Tschumi at the opposite end of the project. The idea was to answer in opposition and to give it a minimal aspect by covering it with an opaque and uniform envelope. As a monolith, the building exists by expressing a clear introversion in a heterogeneous environment. ' (via ArchDaily) Photobucket
