Astounding Black Thread Portraits
Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita, who lives and works in New York, is continuing her ongoing “Constellation” series: portraits made by winding a single UNBROKEN black thread around nails hammered into a board to create the uncanny likeness of a face. The results are remarkable.
If India’s Mars Orbiter Mission is a success, the space program’s biggest achievement might lie in its frugality.Mangalyaan’s mission to Mars cost India seventy-three million dollars. For comparison, Boeing prices its least expensive commercial airplane at seventy-six million dollars. And by India’s profligate standards of public expenditure, the Mars Orbiter Mission has come cheap: an eight-lane bridge in Mumbai that opened in 2010 spans three miles and cost three hundred and forty million dollars; a proposed statue of a long-dead Indian politician—designed to stand twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty—will cost three hundred million dollars.
Trees Burst Through Gallery Walls and Ceilings
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s powerful recycled wood art installations snake through their exhibition spaces like massive living trees that burst out of walls and through ceilings. Oliveira scours the streets of Sao Paulo to gather plywood, which he then separates into layers and combines to create his massive “tridimensionals” sculptures. The stunning mixed media pieces are a combination of sculpture, painting and architecture.
