On a trip to Sicily, Mauritius and Morocco photographer Joseph Ford spent several days flying around over all sorts of terrain in a helicopter. After showing the aerial pictures to some friends they suggested shooting a series mixing fashion and landscapes. Juxtaposing clothes and aerial landscape, the piece of work was selected for the Association of Photographers Awards in the UK and had an Honorable Mention in the International Photography Awards.
The combination of images creates a fascinating interaction, highlighting the appeal of each image, which would have been less remarkable on their own. But by identifying an unexpected relationship with other images each picture develops a gripping impression.
Those of us with office jobs often spend our days vicariously engaging with the world through our computer screens. As an antidote to the sedentary lifestyle, Jana Winderen and Marc Fornes collaborated on “Situation Room,” an immersive installation that will shake up viewers’ senses. Currently on view at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York, “Situation Room” is described as a sound object. The enormous, hot pink structure not only envelopes viewers in a fluorescent, biomorphic mass. It also vibrates with sound when visitors crawl through the work’s nooks and crannies, which the artists say is a feature intended to make us question the ways we interact with our built environments. Next time your senses feel dulled, you can venture into the “Situation Room” through November 1.
Taylor Holland - Fra[mes]
Antique frames filled with their own content using custom molds built from digital processes.For his latest project called “Fra[mes]” artist Taylor Holland created a series of high-resolution digital photographs of ornate frames filled with their own content instead of the art. Speaking about the project Taylor says, “I have taken frames and digitally filled them with the content of themselves. This project was born of the idea that, on several visits to the Louvre, I was often more interested in the artistic merit of the frame than the art itself. The result hopefully challenges the viewer’s notion not only of what art is, but the viewer’s own perceptions about where to find and appreciate art in various settings such as the Louvre.” - See more at: http://www.junk-culture.com/2012/06/taylor-holland-frames.html#sthash.VAQZheVQ.dpuf
