Mechanical Arthropods and Insects

“Chicago-based jeweler Justin Gershenson-Gates recently grew a bit tired of creating jewelry after a show this summer and while experimenting with some watch part anatomy he decided to try his hand at spider and insect legs. One thing led to another a new series of small sculptural arthropods and insects was born. Justin tells me via email that each piece takes several hours to make and being unable to leave things unfinished he generally makes an entire new creature in one sitting, a monumental feat considering the scorpions can take an entire 12-hour work session as the watch springs, stems, gears and straps are assembled and soldered together (nothing is glued). I love the idea of the tiny light bulb for the spider abdomens.”

Antiquarian Book Sculpting

“Like a traditional sculptor carving away at a piece of stone, artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson eviscerates text and whitespace leaving only the images. In doing so he creates entirely new narratives using only the pre-existing illustrations, charts, graphs and other visual elements printed inside of each book. Of his work he says:

By using pre-existing media as a starting point, certain boundaries are set by the material, which I aim to transform through my process. Thus, an encyclopedia can become a window into an alternate world, much like lived reality becomes its alternate in remembered experience. These books, having been stripped of their utilitarian value by the passage of time, regain new purpose. They are no longer tools to learn about the world, but rather a means to gain insight about oneself.”

The Shire General Store

This is AWESOME! Paul Blazek loves sculpting polymer clay figures inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. So logically, with his mother’s help, he opened an Etsy store to sell his creations.

The profile associated with The Shire General Store reads:“I am Paul Blazek, age 10, and I like to make things out of polymer clay with my brothers. I have 5 brothers but really only Caleb, age 8, helps so far. I like Lord of the Rings and my Dad reads it aloud to us almost every night.” Here’s what Paul offers for sale.

Gandalf

Fiery Balrog

Friendly Hobbits

Boromir and Faramir

Nasty Goblins

The Ents

Giant flip flop monkey

“The Fat Monkey is a site specific work which was created out of the question from the Pixelshow to make a sculpture during their conference in 2010. Made with the help of local students and made from the brazilian icon; the flip flop which obviously works as one of the 10.000 pixels. The fat monkey is a work in the series Obeastitas.

Here some movies of the making of and the result.

A Bottle Fish

“As part of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) an enormous outdoor installation of fish was constructed using discarded plastic bottles on Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The sculptures are illuminated from the inside at night creating a pretty spectacular light show.”
