Look closely. In almost every pic there is something… odd. And the architexture is modern. Almost futuristic. And everything is new. And empty. There are no messes. Is this paradise or hell?

Frank Gehry

Frank Gehry. You look at pics of Gehry’s work and you are sure it is photoshoped. He builds buildings that look like they have a history. There is personality. And always this surreal sense of place. I often wonder what it must be like to live or work in these edifaces. Does the building ever get indigestion.

Rolling through the bay is an abstract toothpick sculpture of San Francisco. It has about 100,000 of toothpicks. The amazing part, is that is has four ping pong ball paths that roll through different landmarks of San Francisco. I have spent about 3000 hours on it over a period of 34 years and the only glue I use is Elmer’s.

One doesn’t ask the question as to whether it is art. One stands amazed. 100,000 toothpicks. 34 years. Elmer’s glue.

This young artist has discovered some interesting things. This animation of a house is one of them.

I am really into this gif thing in the last time, they are just so much better than just pictures, like a mix between picture and film, how awesome is that? So this project is made by INSA and Stanley Downwood. To be honest: I looked at the other works of them alone and I didn’t like them because it is so simple and stupid so I’m surprised that I like the project they did together. But as this is the case I wanted to show it to you guys, so here it is:

Laurent Chehere has created this wonderful series called flying houses. It is both amusing and intriguing. It suggests the impossible. But makes it look ordinary as if it might exist in some alternate  universe.

Jean-Paul Bourdier. I’m not sure if you can ever tire of using the human body as the central figure in anything. In Bourdier’s pieces the body is the landscape. Fascinating stuff. But would it have been as appealing as say using a raccoon?
