bodies in urban spaces

"Bodies in urban spaces" is a project undertaken by Willi Dorner and Lisa Rastl.

Will Dorner is the art director and Lisa Rastl is the photographer behind this visually pleasing project. Will and Lisa have collaborated on 2 projects (‘hängende gärten’ and ‘bodies in urban spaces’) combining humans in odd formations and unusual locations. These projects set out to explore the “relationship between body, space and architecture”. This urban based series shows the human body and bodies are sculptures which were spread throughout the city of Vienna.

The still are amazing. Video at the end... enjoy.

Blek Le Rat: he came, saw and conquered.

This is the story of when Blek Le Rat came to Melbourne.

"His disciples call him ''the godfather'' of stencil graffiti, but for 58-year-old Parisian-born Blek le Rat - who takes his name from the small black rodents he painted around Paris some 30 years ago - it's a term of endearment rather than a title implying omnipotence."

The Ages article "Graffiti Godfather makes mark in Melbourne"

Blek Le Rat is currently showing at Metro 5, one very prestigious gallery in Melbourne. Metro 5 is on High st (between glenferrie rd + kooyong rd) but to be exact 1214 High St, Armadale, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Metro 5 is a perfect display unit for Blek Le Rat, great window space and its long corridor displays Blek's work to perfection.
My favored pieces from the exhibition

Blek attended the opening. Since he was in Melbourne he ended up working some of his magic in town.

canine, ice or jail? where would you like to spend the night...

Take your pick from the worlds oddest hotel clickty click here its a silde show...

Jail looks positivly futuristic, somewhat of a space ship. Maybe its the way its been photographed?

Ice looks simply stunning, with the ice lit from below. Glowing colours would be perfect for a party. Slip and slide coldness.

The twelfth photo is of Cappadocia. When i visited Turkey we travelled there. Its amazing house in caves, all equipped with antennas. Another world.

On the topic of hotels, i remembered this artist who covered a room with cheese... YES cheese.

Artist Cosimo Cavallaro, likes to work with foods stuffs ham, cheese, chocolate and candy. His website is here.

blog neglect

I have neglected the yellow brick road... I am currently on main shifts for making it hard for me to devote as much time as i would like here. Not to mention one more week left of school till mid semester break. It's all a little bit to much now.

breakfast dreams

a toaster that poaches an egg... ooo

Ballonger, globos, palloncini and בלונים

Balloons in any language!

I played a small prank on tim -housemate number 2 last night. I blew up 15 odd balloons (with no help from whale) and placed them underneath his doona. After all the blowing and tieing, it looked wonderful. I didn't take a photo, i should have. Now i knew tim was having a night on the piss, so the homecoming would be fairly amusing.

I did not hear any popping during the night, but i do have to admit that i have a wonderfully deep sleep.

I was up early on the computer prepping for the studio and i heard his door creek open, footsteps and a groan. After the mornings greetings and amusing balloon talk. That was it.

I have balloons on the brain and found these images...

Does it shoot balloons too? I want this in my backyard.


Hows dads face?! (This ones in there for fathers day.)

Things I have learnt :
Balloons are awesome.
Dogs like balloons.
I am not so good at pulling pranks.

diamonds are a girls best friend

doing the hard yards in the studio, working on new stone setting ideas, for multiple finger rings.

i'm really like the design for a 3 finger ring, tight.

copper for the mocks, but they will be in silver.
