Visitors attending this year’s Vivid Sydney festival were able to experience what standing inside a giant kaleidoscope feels like, courtesy of Masakazu Shirane. The Japanese spatial designer installed Light Origami, a giant spiky dome with a 3D kaleidoscope inside, right on the street. The musical space featured mirrored panels inside which reflected psychedelic designs according to people’s movements and clothing patterns and colors.
Crafted from more than 320 reflective aluminum composite panels, the dome offered an opportunity for visitors to re-imagine their own reality mediated by a sense of wonder. This way they weren’t mere spectators, but became co-creators as they played with the all-around reflections by dancing and dressing brightly for the occasion.
Memories in Motion is a group exhibition currently at M Contemporary in Sydney, Australia. The show examines the ideas of motion, repetition, line, rhythm and the methods of using pencil, charcoal, ink and paper.
Using only MS Paint, Australian artist Miranda Lorikeet creates a pastel universe with her fun but contemplative digital drawings. Many of her drawings center around two naked girls in a beautiful, chaotic world. Miranda, who is based in Sydney and grew up in the 90’s as computers and software like MS Paint were on the rise, describes her art as “childish, simple, contemplative, familiar but surreal”.
Miranda’s drawings often feature landscapes where water meets the land, and give the viewer the suspicion they are looking st something beautiful but perhaps something about it isn’t quite right.
We wanted to end the day with something more inspirational and cool than Miley Cyrus and her newfound tattoo. Bianca Chang going for the stop-motion look, noting, “Stop-motion builds and photos of recent works created for Sydney’s A4 Paper Festival 31st May – 5th June presented by the Paper Convention. All photos by Jacob Ring.”
Toby and Pete, from Sydney, Australia, do some great type work smashed by a car in this video. We had never heard of these two until today, and we saw it on Booooooom. We just really want the playground structure.
This is a good looking group show at Monster Children Gallery in Sydney, and it also happens to be the last. According to Cody’s blog, “Sydney’s iconic and internationally respected Monster Children gallery will hold its final exhibition in December of this year.
After five years of operation and over forty individual and group exhibitions, Monster Children directors, Chris Searl and Campbell Milligan, will close the doors of the gallery after the demand for proposed international and domestic creative projects and collaborations becomes a reality.”
