This amazing library and cafe interior in South Korea is a celebration of fractured geometry and irregular forms. It has been designed to communicate the diversity of both the information it exhibits and the people who visit it; a point that is partially accentuated by the collection of chairs sourced from around the world that line the table in the cafe area… envisioned by its designers as the spot where people meet and cultures collide. The staircase that jaggedly winds its way up the centre of the space is fantastic too.
Artists Zoey Taylor and David Connelly have created the artistic duo Dosshaus. They don’t just create photos, but entire worlds made of cardboard. It’s mesmerizing. Connelly and Taylor create large scenes in which they interact with their cardboard creations. But when you look closer, you’ll see that their creations are most impressive for their details. The scene “The Writer’s Room” is incredible in the atmosphere it creates. But when you look at the little items in the scene, you see the work that was involved in each object. Sometimes their scenes show everyday moments in new and mesmerizing proportions. It’s amazing that something so realistic can also be so surreal.
The 36-year-old Tokyo resident, self-taught sculpture artist Haroshi, combining his love for art and skateboarding, uses the discarded leftovers of broken skateboards to create striking wooden creations.
His creations are born through styles such as wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels; where each element, either cut out in different shapes or kept in their original form, are connected in different styles, and shaven into the form of the final art piece.
"My name is Matthew DiClemente and I work as one of the Art Handlers on The Andy Warhol Museum’s exhibitions team. The other art handlers and I do many jobs around the museum – some glamorous, others not so much. Some of our tasks include the installation and deinstallation of the art, building crates and frames, shipping and receiving artwork, and accompanying artwork when it leaves the museum. One of our most difficult jobs however, is keeping the Silver Clouds exhibition looking good." (warhol.org)
