Kyu-In Shim

South Korean digital artist/sculptor Kyu-In Shim forms and conceptualizes mannequin characters in a very otherworldly manner. Throughout his work, he creates beautiful themes revolving around pain, depravity, sorrow, and discomposure. His first series entitled ‘Huk Huk’ originally has two Korean meanings, ‘black’ and the ‘sound of crying’ and the two series below are labeled the ‘Bowl’ and ‘Small Space’.South Korean digital artist/sculptor Kyu-In Shim forms and conceptualizes mannequin characters in a very otherworldly manner.

Re-carving Sculpture

Great art changes how you see the world forever. Today is garbage day in Queens, and on my walk to coffee this morning I saw a broken yard gnome on the sidewalk… and I paused. Thanks to Lasserre, I will never see a duck decoy or any other piece of “thrift shop” sculpture the same ever again. That’s amazing.

 Shae DeTar

Shae’s photographic practice uses painted photography, a technique employed to
 add colour to photographs before colour processing was invented. 
In a world where images can be digitally manipulated, finding a photographer’s 
practice that explores alternative methods is rare and really refreshing. Her painted 
photographs seem mythical, situating models in an eerie and beautiful wilderness.
Such an amazing artist!

 Bund Sightseeing Tunnel Shanghai photographed byJakob Wagner

This psychedelic tourist trap is a leisurely descent into madness

When trying to cross the Huang Pu River in Shanghai’s bustling Bund district, you can either hop on an inexpensive metro car, or you can take a psychedelic trip through the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel.

Located under the iconic Oriental Pearl Tower, the tunnel was built to be one of the Bund’s major tourist attractions, and still manages to draw large numbers of travelers despite costing more than ten times as much as the metro. Although riders do get a rather mind-blowing (if dated) experience. After hopping into a small, futuristic rail car, riders are leisurely carried through a tunnel which is covered in pulsing, strobing lights that attempt to simulate flight through some acid-soaked version of space. The bombardment of flashing lights and colors is accompanied by a rather ominous soundtrack punctuated by an occasional intonation of English words such as “…shining star…” and “…hell…” It is unclear whether the ride is trying to evoke wonder or terror, but both reactions seem appropriate.

Despite its name, the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel offers no Shanghai sights other than its own sensory bombardment. The entire ride lasts just under five minutes, but the mind-blowing light show could have much more lasting effects

Isabel Chiara Collage

on Behance | Artistt on Tumblr

Spanish artist and illustrator Isabel Chiara creates impressive gif collages, some uncannily reminiscent of animations in the Monty Python vein. Chiara cites the great masters of painting as her influences, and that’s something you can easily identify in her gif collages.
