Transarquitetônica

I can’t get over the scale of this giant wooden maze in the São Paulo Museum. Would love to walk through it.

Going Back to the Roots with Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica

To see more photos and videos from Transarquitetônica, explore the MAC USP location page and browse the #henriqueoliveira hashtag.

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira invites spectators to step inside his latest artwork and explore a giant wooden maze at São Paulo Museum MAC. His largest installation to date, Transarquitetônica is a 70 meter (229.66 ft) interactive sculpture made of tapumes, a plywood material traditionally used for cheap housing in Brazil. As the piece’s name suggests, Oliveira’s work speaks to the concept of time and evolution. Spectators discover spaces of contrast, as certain areas reference today’s modern architecture while sprawling branches symbolize man’s first dwelling.

Hand-cut leaves





















archiemcphee:

Leaf-cutting Artist Omid Asadi was born in Iran and now lives in Sale, Greater Manchester, England where he gathers fallen leaves and uses a craft knife and needle to transform them into exquisitely beautiful and expressive works of art. He even recreated The Scream by Edvard Munch on a leaf.

“Art for me is the way of looking differently to this world and around myself.I started to think why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them, because of their name – if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all! I wanted to give the leaves another Life and make art from them.”

Visit Omid Asadi’s website and Facebook page to check out more of his hand-cut leaves. You can also follow him here on Tumblr at omidasadi.

20,000 Days on Earth

Trailer for 20,000 Days on Earth, the documentary about creative polymath Nick Cave. Pair with Cave’s eclectic list of influences, which suddenly makes so much sense.

I want to see this very badly. Now.
