Hello again. Amidst another busy week here at Dolphin Towers, we are proud to present the tenth installment of our regular Five Things series. A quick trawl through some of the interesting creativity we’ve spotted over the last seven days.
Click below to check out what’s caught our eye recently.
We’re big fans of Slinkachu. The London based artist creates tiny, site-specific installations. He has recently participated in Fame Festival 2010 in the small town of Grottaglie in southern Italy, creating six installations around the city. This particular piece uses a small speaker hidden in the drain playing sounds of kids screaming and splashing. More of Slinkachu’s work can be found on his site and his blog.
Gabriel Dawe is a mixed media artist who makes pieces in which Gütermann thread is often the main material. When the coloured thread is suspended between ceilings and walls it creates beautiful symmetrical shapes and forms. Stunning.
If you happen to be anywhere near the Agora Gallery in New York, it might be worth popping in for some unbridled creativity along with a dose of childhood nostalgia. Nathan Sawaya is exhibiting ‘Red‘, a series of figurative sculptures created from the ubiquitous Lego brick. The exhibition ‘tackles issues of personal importance, bringing a level of reality to his figures, reflecting both his own individual experience and emotions, as well as involvement within the world’ apparently. Showing until December 4th.
Ever the fan of an animal skull, we were very interested to discover the new feature from 3DMuseum.org. The online museum is going through the process of scanning its entire collection of skulls and making them available in full 3D. This is a domestic dog, click here to check out other skulls including that of a mule deer, bottlenose dolphin and muskrat among others.
We’ve all got to go sometime and when that time comes, why not go out with a bit of style? Industrial designers Jacob Jensen have teamed up with Danish coffin makers Tommerup Kister to produce the Diamant Coffin Series. A range of contemporary and beautiful coffins and urns which bring excellent product design and environmental concerns to the forefront of an area rarely considered. Traditional hardwood is substituted for a more sustainable Nordic birch plywood and the interior is lined with organic cotton, printed with a butterfly pattern.
