Using carefully cut fragments of printed skin from the photographs of celebrities in popular magazines, artist David Adey creates elaborate, pinned collages reminiscent of the most complex entomological displays. In some instances he reconstructs the original photos using component pieces cut into myriad geometric shapes and symbols, each placed perfectly on the canvas with a single pin. Other times he creates giant whirling textures as with his piece Swarm (above), a process that can take up to 200-300 hours.
This amazing house was build in 2006 by Arquitectura Orgánica. A young couple with two children from Mexico City who after living in a conventional home wanted to change to one integrated to nature. The goal of this project was to make it feel like an internal inhabitant of a snail, like a mollusk moving from one chamber to another, like a symbiotic dweller of a huge fossil maternal cloister.
This looks very Gaudi-esque.
Looks similar to the Jelly Fish House, a model of which is now on view at SFMOMA as part of The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area! The house pictured here is far more bejeweled, however :)
Emilio Pucci chose the black lace for this Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
