The all too fleeting works of a sandcastle artist

Monday, 27 July, 2015

Photo by Calvin Seibert

I’ve mentioned the work of sandcastle artist Calvin Seibert before, but this is artistry that needs to be revisited.

I often wonder how Seibert deals with the knowledge that his creations, some of which must take hours to bring forth, will either whither away in a short space of time, or must be “removed” by the end of the day, as is the requirement imposed by some beach authorities. Just as well he takes plenty of photos.

When making sculptures of food, do you eat to work, or work to eat?

Monday, 13 July, 2015

Sculptures by Itamar Gilboa

Amsterdam based Israeli artist Itamar Gilboa kept keep track of everything he ate and drank over the course of a year. Everything. No matter how minuscule the morsel, its consumption was noted. Not by way of a notepad or a spreadsheet though, but with a sculptured replica of each item of foodstuff.

And where did these duplicates, all eight thousand of them end up? On display in a pop-up supermarket called the Food Chain Project, as part of an exhibition that Gilboa hopes will raise awareness of issues such as the over-consumption of food, and starvation.

Fractured landscape photos that are a reflection of themselves

Thursday, 2 July, 2015

Photo by Victoria Siemer

The landscape photography of New York City based graphic designer Victoria Siemer fractures elements of the original image back upon itself, and the results, among other thoughts I have in response, remind me of some scenes from Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film Inception.
