” I am fascinated walking around flea markets finding doubles of seemingly unique, though often useless objects I have already purchased at another flea market. Despite the fact that I did not have any use for them even the first time, the desire to own two of these objects becomes too strong to resist. The unique and unknown origin of the object increases my desire to want the double – the unlikelihood of this sensation repeating itself produces an attraction that is too strong to resist. This combination of the now-familiar and the new-unknown are among the various factors that come together to create the irresistible pull of these objects. This re-iterated fascination and the overwhelming desire that follows is central to my art practice. ” – Michael Johansson

Erika Hock

‘ A project to shatter the rigidness of a material such as cement and make it seem mercurial and fragile. Erika Hock (born in 1981) is a young German artist who likes to break walls as she plays with their resistance. All that’s needed in fact is a belt to damage the clean and rigid geometry of a hunk of wall. An approach that may well contest the “infrastructural ideas” that currently permeate modern art. ‘ (via CoSTUME NATIONAL)

Flux Chairs

Dutch designer Douwe Jacobs has created the Flux Chairs. ‘ For his graduation project in Industrial Design Engineering in 2008, Douwe was looking for inspiration for a line of foldable furniture. Digging deeper and deeper into the world of folding, he found artists creating the most amazing shapes by folding material along curved fold lines. The chair he fluently folded that night made a lasting impact on him. A small scale model made out of paper, beautiful in its simplicity and surprisingly strong. Together with fellow graduation student Tom Schouten, Flux Furniture was founded and from then on they have worked like maniacs to turn that small paper model into a production-ready and patented product. ‘ (via Contemporist)

‘ This series is entitled Sign out, which offers an apt description of the series, for this time Josef Schulz focuses on the great variety of billboards – as they would occur in such locations – photographed during his travels in the USA. Where they are found, these striking illuminated bodies form a second level above the buildings and indicate their respective purposes. They bear written messages and their sole purpose is to alert and seduce us. ‘

” Creativity, like the universe, is constantly evolving in unexpected ways. My portraits depict the interior world of emotion and mood, a link to my work as a psychotherapist. Bold color, form, shape, line and texture as well as raw emotion, inspire my interpretation of the human form, everyday objects, and anything else that attracts my attention. My work transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. ” Robin Halpern

Satoshi Minakawa

‘ In shot after shot, Minakawa presents vehicles that look as if they came straight off some deranged kabuki set. Nothing looks as if it was ever meant for anything so mundane as road transportation. Gaudy gold fins are welded to the boot of two-wheeler carts. Trucks are festooned with blinding neon signs, their every surface plastered with kanji script and strobe lights. Meanwhile, the fleet of motorbikes and scooters are painted in a resplendent rainbow of glossy blues, reds and blacks; some are even adorned with stylized eyes on the fender. The overall effect is one of manga Transformers, a split second before they unfold, unclip and spring into life. ‘ Link here.
