An elevation of natural phenomena and perceptual experience is behind all David DiMichele’s imagined installations. Pushing the envelope of what seems possible, he is creating inspiring art. With his photographs of seemingly impressive, large-scale installations, he gives viewers little chance not to pay attention. His installation photographs are usually shot in low-angle with humans included for scale, and with careful attention to lighting, deep focus, and composition. Unlike most installation photos, however, DiMichele’s documentations are themselves artworks. As their titles reveal, they are ‘Pseudodocumentation’, depicting masterfully made models for works whose full-scale perceptual tricks and awe-inspiring sublimity can only be imagined.

italian-men-watch-envy

From a sundial, to a water clock, to the rings of a tree, we have developed our ability to measure time from  the resources around us. Italian watchmaker Ab Aeterno draws on the beauty and richness of the Australian landscape to create their collection of wooden watches. As a combination of modern Citizen movement technology and ageless materials (the brand’s name means from time immemorial) these are timepieces that are both organic and precise. Crafted from 100% natural sandalwood, each watch is hypoallergenic and, thanks to the wood grain, visually unique.

The garage is an intermediate level, along with a service equipped with hoists and installing temporary employee in order to hide the vehicles for users from the balcony above. A small two-bedroom flat was designed for future occupation of stilts, second family life, in which the children would demand more independence – Early prediction of execution by the client in the first moment of the work, providing functional autonomy to the area leisure and allowing its use for any guest. It opens directly to the view the room, the office, and the double bedroom – mediated by a balcony – and indirectly the kitchen connected to the dining room for large sliding panels. The integration between these two environments is enhanced by continuous bench, topped by a set of adjoining cabinets and windows that open yet frontal view of the street.
