I wish it could always be <28°. Sun and heat is all good and well, but too much of a good thing will kill you.

Sculptures and paintings by Kim Kei

Kim Kei manipulates, alters and combines everyday objects and natural debris to create stunning sculptures, which she captures in striking images. These photographs then form the basis of her paintings.

"Her intricate, improvised compositions exist somewhere between representation and abstraction. Her work is a departure from the figure as a form yet in its absence the body is implied." - Kim-Kei’s website

Glitched (series) by Mathieu Schmitt 

2013-2014; Tinted glass, model, 3D print, LEDs; 30x30x30cm

A series of 3D printed diaoramas in a smoked glass cube. Each scene contains a ‘glitch’ which is the result of deliberately putting the file through incompatible softwares (leading to corrupted files for printing). The glass blocks 95% of light, allowing the artist to bathe his creations in eerie artificial lighting.

James Nizam makes incisions in the structure of houses to create meticulously designed light sculptures. These photos shows work from his light installation series ‘Trace Heavens.’

Zaria Forman's soft pastel drawings are an evocative blend of photorealism and expressive strokes. She travels around the world documenting changing landscapes, focusing on water.

The first photo is from her trip to the Maldives in 2013. The second photo is from her second trip to Greenland in 2012, where she led ‘Chasing the Light,’ an expedition retracing the steps of 19th century artist William Bradford.

Digital waves rise and fall across 400 pounds of sand. The installation’s water mark corresponds to local tides, and no two waves are ever the same.

Roseline de Thélin creates ethereal holographic light sculptures which play with “reflection, refraction, fragmentation, conduction and transparency.” Finding inspiration in “astronomy, scientific theories, quantum physics, and the expansion of consciousness,” she uses a wide variety of materials including fiber optics, quartz crystals, mirrors, wires and chains.

Flying over the north of Poland, photographer Kacper Kowalski chanced upon a pristine forested area. He decided to capture the changing of the seasons by flying back to the spot throughout the year.

The beautiful transformation will have you booking plane tickets to see it in person.

Rain Room, 2012 by rANDOM 

Rain room is a hundred square metres of falling water, through which one can walk without being drenched by trusting that a path will present itself, despite all evidence to the contrary.

This is made possible by custom software, 3D tracking cameras and other specialised equipment and materials which ensures that the downpour responds to your movements.

Such an interesting way to ask “do you trust yourself?”

Fine arts photographer Christy Lee Rogers takes underwater photographs which mimic Baroque paintings. They have had her being compared to Caravaggio, a painting master of that time period.

Shaina Craft. Experiments in the Flesh.

Veneers of painted flesh mingle on my canvases, blending the borders between figurative and landscape, portrait and abstract.  My deepest desire is to create provocative artwork that challenges the foundations of figure painting by continuing to blur the boundaries between digital and traditional work, pushing color, and recontextualizing traditional subject matter.
