The key for you to understand here with the work of James Nizam. In order to get these photographs, in order to create these wonderful light installations, James makes incisions into the structure of a house to manipulate sunlight into light sculptures. That's right, its the sun . . .

Plant style tags for sidewalk fixtures

Street Art // Thursday, May 03, 2012
Carmichael Collective is a company based in Minneapolis, Mn that creates projects for the sake of creativity, simple objective right?  Using the same idea of plant tags, used to identify and educate about a particular specimen, but using them on everyday sidewalk fixtures we are all familiar with.  Apparently from the information on these tags, all these objects are ok in varying degrees of the sun!

Starry Night Installations in Nature by Lee Eunyeol

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 03, 2012
In what reminds us of a featured artist on the site last year, Barry Underwood, we really love these light installations in nature by Lee Eunyeol. Where the Korean photographer/installation artist places the lights makes you look at the ground in a different way, and appears as if the night sky has just fallen to the ground from outer space.

Oversized Everyday Objects by Lilian Bourgeat

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
When we begin to close the day on office work, we like to try and find something that makes us laugh or has a bit of a fun element to it in the world of art. Most of the time we just look at movie trailers and music videos, but last night we came across the oversized everyday object serires by French artist Lilian Bourgeat, a good examination on distorted your visual perception and the ways we become familiar with space and porportion.

Henrique Oliveira

Street Art // Monday, April 30, 2012
Creating installation work that looks similar to living creature’s organs, Brazilian multidisciplinary artist, Henrique Oliveira has a way with manipulating plywood.  Often working indoors, the artist occasionally works in the street altering the facades of building and the final product is spectacular.

The Book Igloo by Colombia's Miler Lagos

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
Just one grab, and this thing will topple. Colombian artist, Miler Lagos, created this "semi book igloo," titled Home, in an installation in 2011 at MagnanMetz Gallery in New York. No glue, nothing holding the books together, just neatly and perfectly stacked so as not to fall over on itself. And with a name like Home, it feels very comforting if you want to read The Hunger Games trilogy amongst other novels.

Glass Like Water: Aerial by Baptiste Debombourg

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 27, 2012
Glass riding in like the tide is the best way to describe what French artist Baptiste Debombourg created with Aerial, an installation at Brauweiler Abbey, a Benedictine monastery near Cologne, Germany. As the glass hits the floor, Debombourg creates the effect of layered ocean tides creeping onto the stone ground, a magnificent result. The work was completed on April 14, 2012, and took over 420 hours to complete.

Mathilde Roussel "Lifes Of Grass"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
An installation that grows with time... pretty interesting concept. French artist Mathilde Roussel created the pieces that would make up Lifes of Grass, to examined the "effects of transformation of the material as a metaphor of the transformation of the body. Time sculpts the forms, makes them change and then decay." The work went on display around the world, including the 2010 Crossing the Line FIAF Festival at Invisible Dog Gallery, Brooklyn.
