More Anamorphic Installations by Bernard Pras

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Last week we posted an anamorphic (the art of stacking objects to create a huge 3D sculpture) portrait installation by Bernard Pras where he filled an entire room with found objects, creating a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui. This morning we take a look at more of the French artist's impressive large-scale compositions.

Pictorial Illusions with Tape by Mark Khaisman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
  Using layers of translucent packing tape on clear, backlit Plexiglas panels, Ukrainian artist Mark Khaisman transforms a commonplace material into a fine art medium. He says, 'By superimposing layers of translucent tape, I play on degrees of opacity that produces transparencies highlighted by the color, shading, and embossment.'  

David Bowen's Installation "allows" Houseflies to Tweet

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
  Artist David Bowen created an acrylic sphere containing a keyboard, a collection of houseflies, and various instruments that detect the flies landing on a particular key. The corresponding character is then entered into a twitter text box and when the 140-character limit is reached 'ENTER' is triggered and the tweet is broadcasted in real time. Watch a video after the jump...  

YOY Design Studio Created Hanging Canvas Furniture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
We weren't quite sure what was going on here until we saw a few different angles of Japanese design studio YOY's latest 'canvas,' two-dimensional-looking hanging furniture pieces. Each piece is constructed out of wood and aluminum and then covered with screen-printed elastic fabric. The 'canvas' is then leaned against a wall and stretches when weight is applied to accommodate the user.

Laura Bacon's Nest-Like Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 12, 2013
Nest-like forms inspire British artist Laura Bacon’s sculptures and they are often nestled in trees, on the sides of buildings, and riverbanks. "Whilst the scale and impact varies from striking to subtle (sometimes only visible upon a quizzical double take), I relish the opportunity to let a building 'feed' the form, as if some part of the building is exhaling into the work." 

Incredible Anamorphic Portrait Composed of an Entire Room of Objects

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 11, 2013
French artist Bernard Pras's latest installation is a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyate. It is anamorphic, meaning it is an illusion that can only be viewed from a specific vantage point. Pras used clothes, paint, wood, rubber, and other objects to fill the entire room and the portrait is only clearly visible through the lens of his camera.

Tape to New Heights: The Work of Rebecca Ward

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
You learn a lot in this art world, and I was still under the assumption that using tape was not the most sturdy way to put together an installation. Brooklyn-based Rebecca Ward isn't afraid of a little tape, so much so that she is creating some fantastic installation and sculptural works with the material. Ward will open a new show, cow tipping (yep, that's the name), at London's Ronchini Gallery this April 12, 2013. Cow tipping.

Suspended Loop of Chairs by Marc Andre Robinson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Brooklyn-based artist Marc Andre Robinson salvaged over a dozen chairs and has presented them in a suspended loop for his sculptural installation titled Right of Return (By Themselves and of Themselves). Robinson often uses discarded furniture in his work, playing with the dialogue between art and artifact and transforming them into 'sculptural assemblages with complex and delicately balanced symbology.'

Bursting Installations by Monika Grzymala

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 29, 2013
Polish artist Monika Grzymala built this huge, bursting installation out of 5 km of black paper tape! Monika makes what she calls 'architectural interventions': site-specific, large-scale, temporary, often ephemeral transformations with a wide range of materials, including handmade paper, tapes, wire, confetti, leaves, branches and other found objects.
