carnovsky, the milan based collecitve created RGB, a series of wallpapers that surprisingly mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. RGB is about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”. RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. the resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting. the colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear.

pretty cool and definitely a different kind of landscape photography. the artist kim keever’s large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water. these dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he quickly captures with his large-format camera.

wow, take a look at how poetic these prints look like, almost as if they were a modern still-life painting. the chinese artist huang xu takes shreds of used plastic bags and makes 3d scans, then takes the scan data and turns them into 3d models, illuminates them and makes prints of it. pretty amazing if you think about turning one of the cheapest products on earth, a simple plastic bag into a silk dress impression – a metaphor of the old and new china.

check out these amazing topography images of japanese landscapes done by hajime ishikawa. think they are beautiful and poetic in a very simple and graphical way. i am amazed, not that i’d be into topography that much but i’d definitely hang these up on my walls.

this painting from mac & retna is called “memento mori” and is a latin phrase for “be mindful of death” and can be translated as “remember that you are mortal” or “remember that you must die”. that could seem a little grim, but the point is really to encourage us to properly value and make the most of our time here. like it!
check out more cool stuff from mac & retna
