Rooms Filled with Thousands of Balloons by somesiena



Scattered Crowd is a magnificent spacial installation featuring thousands of balloons by German choreographerWilliam Forsythe. The multi-disciplined artist forces visitors to his site-specific installation to not only take in the gorgeous, magical effect of the piece, but to also interact with the space.

Walking through a maze of dreamy white balloons varying in size and opacity, one can't help but become part of the piece in an unusual dance whose choreography lies in the audience's own power. Whether they choose to physically touch or delicately maneuver around each suspended balloon is entirely up to them. Forsythe's intention with the piece is to reflect human emotion and decision. The abstract representation is, in fact, a catalyst in an interesting performance put on by visitors themselves.

Cloud Cities / Hamburger Bahnhof by somesiena

The dreaminess of Tomás Saraceno's installations shatter traditional concepts relating to place, time, gravity and traditional ideas as to what constitutes architecture. His works are utopian and invite the viewer to play a part in their impact on a particular space, as they reach up to the sky and down to the ground. The artist creates gardens that hang in the air and allow visitors to float in space, fulfilling a dream shared by all humankind. Saraceno draws inspiration from soap bubbles and the incredible strength and flexibility of spider webs. Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin

Print time machine by somesiena

time print machine from paul F on Vimeo.

This machine functions in a similar way to a CNC machine, with an incorporated program to print any image using a time-based algorithm. According to the grey value of a pixel on an image, the felt pen remains in contact with the blotting paper for relative periods of time. Consequently the ink will bleed through the paper creating a variety of different sized stains, gradually building the image.It can takes around 34 hours to print one colour image. The slow printing process and the imperfections we obtain every time is what makes every print unique.

loving the pages of mette hornung rankin’s sketchbook. I'm seriously thinking about participating the 2012 sketchbook project. What a great idea.

Stories that Crumble by somesiena






I find this work just stunning in a  take your breath away kind of way. Oh, to see this in person.

CNJPUS TEXT is the latest work from Tokyo-based artist Ryo Shimizu. The text is formed by using strokes borrowed from Chinese characters and then restructuring them into letters of the Roman alphabet. Via artist a day:
