Seascapes by Antti Viitala

Some of the many configurations of Infinite Sunset by Joseph Gray

About the project:

Created after visiting Kauai and staring West into the Pacific quite a bit during sundown […] It intentionally uses simple graphical elements to visually describe a sunset seascape ever changing in its sameness. The piece is meant to be viewed with various devices/contexts and is therefore a “responsive” composition. Aesthetically the piece pursues the reductionist purity of certain mid-century modernist perspectives but using the contemporary, generative, medium of code.


Belgian photographer Isabelle Menin creates richly gorgeous and expressive portraits of flowers. She calls her work “inland photographs and disordered landscapes” in reference to the parallels between the strange complexity of nature and of humans.

I went to the Chelsea Art Walk yesterday and was totally blown away by these generative pieces by teamLab at the Pace Gallery. Nothing beats seeing them in person, but these videos are a much better representation of them than just photos:

My Amp Goes To 11 Artist Submission: Medical diagram style sculptures by Edwige Massart & Xavier Wynn

Heads is a series of found object sculptures that husband and wife team Edwige Massart and Xavier Wynn have collaborated on over the past year. They are explorations in identity and personality; surrealist portraits inspired by medical imagery and created using found objects. All heads are approximately 8” x 11” x .375” each. They are made using found objects, polyform clay, acrylic paints, gold/silver/bronze gilding, and resin. 

Check out the full collection on their website.

Images from the Daily Overview Project

About the project:

Our project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That’s the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire.

From our line of sight on the earth’s surface, it’s impossible to fully appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet. We believe that beholding these forces as they shape our Earth is necessary to make progress in understanding who we are as a species, and what is needed to sustain a safe and healthy planet.
