In collaboration with MBC, Rob and Nick Carter were able to design and print a three dimensional sculpture of Van Gogh’s iconic sunflowers. Initially having developed a 360 degree digital rendering of the painting, the detail and dimensionality of Van Gogh’s brushwork was applied to the surface of the sculpture. The final piece was printed initially in a resin material, the sculpture was cast in silicon bronze.
The work is currently on display at the fine art society contemporary until November 2nd.

I have a mild fascination with engineered or manipulated imagery, especially if it leaves me wondering how the hell it was made. Tao Tajima’s video Night Stroll does just that. Filmed in his hometown, Tajima recreates the sensations he experiences when he hears music during the lonesome hours of the night in Japan.
Obsessing over the Dolce Vita Nissa ankle boots in black at this moment. Something about the combined materials and slightly geometric detail around the shaft of the boot has me swooning.

Monochromatic schemes offer a sense of modern calm, lacking of the intensity of vibrant hues and emotion attached to them. The classic combination of black and white illicit a knowledge of these intensities and emotions while making a choice to be without them. Saturated color instantly makes a statement and has a distinguished visual presence, but simple and structured black and white is an ideal backdrop to add a twist.
