Geometric Dichroic Glass Installations by Chris Wood


glass-8

Artist Chris Wood works with colored glass to create colorful, prism-like mazes and mandalas of light installed vertically on walls. Her most common material is dichroic (meaning ‘two color’) glass, a material invented by NASA in the 1950s that has a special optical coating meant to reflect certain wave lengths of light while letting others through. At some angles the glass appears completely reflective, somewhat like a mirror of gold.

Marc Fichou

Marc Fichou is folding sharks, birds, foxes and all kinds of other animals out of a colored, squared paper. His intention is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent. This naturally led him towards origami because of the reversible character of its folding process: each can be unfolded back to its initial two-dimensional square, and in so doing retain the physical marks of its creases. The final piece is an unfolded photograph, where folds in the picture blend with the real folds, thus blurring the line between image and matter.

Hip Hop Portraits By Mark563.


Illustrated portfolios always seem to have some sort of mysticism about them that photo’s don’t always capture.  There’s just something special about someone taking their time to make sure every stroke of the pencil was correct, that every shade was correct, and every subtle nuance of a figure represented them correctly.  The illustrator known as “Mark563” has done all this and then some.  Using some of the strongest names in Hip Hop as his subjects, he proves that both his illustration skills, and his knowledge of the legends of the genre are both impeccable.
