Marco Cadioli - Squares with Concentric Circles



Woman doing a one handed cartwheel (1937/38) by Dr. Bohumil Kröhn.

this photo was brilliantly used in juxtaposition with an image of a calla flower on early “cocteau twins” records and artwork.

Pae White - Metafoil (2011) - Curtain design for the Oslo Opera House 

"For the main stage curtain of the Oslo Opera House, the L.A.-based artist scanned images of crumpled aluminum foil and sent the scans through a computer numerically-controlled loom which transformed the pixels into a massive tapestry of cotton, wool, and polyester.  Here’s what Pae had to say:

Metafoil takes advantage of the captive gaze of the audience, introducing a foil, a false reflection, an illusion of depth, a novel typography that disrupts expectation and challenges perception. My work has attempted to subvert the viewer’s expected relationship to an everyday object, nudging them off balance, encouraging a deeper look. My goal is to cause viewers to stop and consider the bits and pieces of our lives that are most often overlooked, perhaps suggesting a more comprehensive reconsideration of the world around us, even to ask ourselves: What is important to us? What are we seeing? What are we not seeing?

These moldscapes by Hans Jörgen Johansen are carefully cultivated on 2-foot-square pieces of organic material (mostly wheat flour and bread) and then carefully photographed. Johansen does not use any form of photographic manipulation.

"I was looking for the ugliest, most polluted, most anti-architectural building in the most anti-ecological condition I could find. Back then, the whole suburban area of Barcelona was full of cement factories and pollution. The challenge was to change the use, to transform the place, to reinvent a new aesthetic, and to make this industrial, ugly object into something beautiful,’ Bofill says in our new issue, and a new aesthetic he has achieved: a thoroughly surreal mixture of industrial heritage, high tech interiors and Catalan Civic Gothic style."

David Letellier - Caten, 2012
Caten is the latest kinetic sound installation by David Letellier, Berlin-based sound artist, audio-visual performer and CAN regular. Site-specific to Chapelle du vieux St-Sauveur, a 12th century Gothic chapel in Caen, France, Letellier sculpted a delicate veil of 300 thin wires, filling the historic site with a magical epiphany. Suspended from two ropes, each connected to slowly rotating arms at both ends, the ghostly structure comes alive, performing gentle, organic movements and a sacral real-time composition.

In the civilizations I have created there arise times when the ability to view the breadth of actions across the globe is reached through advancements in technology. At once a common perspective becomes possible. It is only when consideration and compassion reach the scope of the viewing technology can the full form of this achievement can be realized. Before that phase the direction of the view is narrow and the stories told are isolated to small circles. But once the comprehension is set to an encompassing scale a planetary awareness is embraced.
