Wonderful new work by Swiss artist Zimoun. See more at his website. The sound component of these pieces is very important to the work so be sure to visit his website to hear them (I don’t have the video upgrade on this site to embed the code directly. They’re amazing!!!

I find myself incredibly attracted to these foldings and enjoy imagining the form that created these lines. See more of her work here on her website.

Andy Warhol-time capsules

March 27, 2011

I’ve been familiar with the work of Andy Warhol for years but never knew about his time capsule project.

From http://edu.warhol.org/app_aw_tc.html :

The Time Capsules are Warhol’s largest collecting project, in which he saved source material for his work and an enormous record of his own daily life. Warhol began creating his Time Capsules in 1974 after relocating his studio. He recognized that cardboard boxes used in the move were an efficient method for dealing with all of his “stuff.” Warhol selected items from the daily flood of correspondence, magazines, newspapers, gifts, photographs, business records, and material that passed through his hands to put in the open box by his desk. Once the box was full he sealed it with tape, marked it with a date or title, and put it in his archive. Collectively, this material provides a unique view into Warhol’s private world, as well as a broad cultural backdrop illustrating the social and artistic scene during his lifetime. From the early ’70s until his death in 1987, Warhol created 612 finished Time Capsules.

Saw the work of this incredible artist living in Louisiana. These little gems come from his “Live Free or Die” series. They are beautiful objects alone but be sure to look at the lettering on the bills, he has folded them in such a way to reveal written messages.

Be sure to look at the rest of his work on his website

Today’s weaver is Peter Collingwood. His work is incredible. Unfortunately I was only able to find a few images of his work online but was able to find a good deal of information on his life. You should look him up.

 

Gunta Stölzl

I’ve become very interested in weaving recently. As a result I have looked up a number of different weaving artists recently and will be posting the work of some of my favorites. I’ve already posted some of the work on Anni Albers so I see it fitting to now post the work of Bauhaus master Gunta Stölzl.
