Homos Luminosos

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.

Luminous Earth Grid, 1993 by Stuart Williams

Luminous Earth Grid, an array of 1,680 energy-efficient fluorescent lamps, swept over an area equal to 8 football fields.  Said the artist, “I see the project as a poetic statement on the potential harmony between technology and nature.”

The Veiled Rebecca” by Giovanni Benzoni

The neoclassical sculpture depicts a scene from the Bible’s Old Testament (Genesis 24:67), where the young Rebekah, overcome by shyness and modesty, covers her face with her veil upon being introduced to her future husband Isaac.

The illusion of an insubstantial veil was so beautifully executed by the Italian sculptor it seems hardly possible that the statue was chiseled from hard rock, leading to it being described by many as ’a melody in marble.’

It is believed that four copies of The Veiled Rebecca was made by Benzoni in the second half of the 19th century. Three are on public display at the Salar Jung Museum (Hyderabad, India), High Museum of Art (Atlanta, Georgia (USA)), and the Berkshire Museum (Pittsfield, Massachusetts (USA)).

Ole Ukena | on Tumblr - Trust . Nails, wood, 200x80 cm (2012)

Over 15.000 nails are hammered on top of a wooden structure that evokes references to the beds of indian fakirs. Not all nails are facing with the sharp side up, some are turned upside down reflecting the light in a different way and creating this way the appearance of the word trust. The act of turning the nails upside down can be read as a metaphor for changing the perspective towards things that cause pain. In this piece what potentially hurts becomes a supporting structure. Where one trusts it doesn‘t hurt.
