Patrick Strattner's Absurd Inventions

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 26, 2013
The Do Nothing Machine came to mind after seeing Patrick Strattner's absurd inventions. Ranging from the "Automatic Upper and Lower Full Mouth Tooth Brush" to the "Hoverering Grocery Shopping Assistant with Leather Hand Lead" these inventions, or as I see them sculptures, are remarkable. These prototypes by Strattner are a great look at form and function and what that might or might mean.

Photographs Rendered in Play-Doh

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 25, 2013
We came across this fantastic Tumblr a few weeks ago and had forgotten about it until this morning. Much to our enjoyment there were several new additions to the collection of "Photographs Rendered in Play-doh." The owner of the page takes a photograph and tries to mold it as close as they can in every kid's favorite malleable toy dough.

Matchstick and Other Sculptures by Oakes Oakes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Twin brothers Ryan and Trevor Oakes (aka Oakes Oakes) create sculptures out of everyday items such as matchstick, pipe cleaners, and cardboard. Starting with a ring of matches on a flat surface, the duo slowly stacked more and found that instead of emerging into a dome, the space between the match heads caused a sea-shell like spiral!

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 20, 2013
We don't know much about Chinese artist Mu Boyan other than that she paints naked fat men, sometimes very big and sometimes flying through the air. Boyan has a Masters from the Sculpture department at the the central Academy of Fine Arts in China and we are glad we happened upon her work this morning!

Ed Templeton x Case Studyo "LAMP"

Design // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Case Studyo continues their fantastic series of special artist designed editions that have been sculptures and housewares, and now they have teamed with Southern California artist, photographer, and skateboarder Ed Templeton on a lamp piece. The piece features one of Ed's now signature head designs, and from the looks of it, lights up completely so you can have a bit of Beautiful Losers vibe shining in your house all the night long... 

Video: OKUDA x REMED - “CAMPO VIEJO”

Street Art // Friday, September 13, 2013
Regular collaborators, Remed and Okuda, were invited by Camp Viejo Winery for a unique opportunity to create a site-specific piece on their vineyard. Located in the Sierra de Cantabria Mountains in Northern Spain, the artists had no initial plan before visiting and decided after arriving that a large sculpture would be appropriate for the specific location. In this video, the two elaborate on some of their ideas behind this piece and the correlations between the creation of wine and artistic practices.
