By Daniele Del Nero, haunting and beautiful project called Brockenhaus, looking at all of the tiny paper houses all broken and falling apart is so strange, they have such a realistic appearance almost resembling WWII London in the Blitz. This is the same artist behind the eerie mould spore houses.
Claes Oldenburg‘s Paint Torch went up in Lenfest Plaza the other day, the New York Times‘ Art Beat did a little write-up about it. That was nice of them. The art even inspired a commentor on the page to write a little poem:
“It’s a work of great moment, that’s clear,
Philadelphians are bound to cheer,
I can see at a glance
T’wasn’t meant to entrance,
I’m glad it was not installed here!”
-Larry From New York
Ah you bastard.

While this is really cool and little confusing as to what it does, I don’t think I would ever use this and I think its impractical and makes your eyes in one way, quite lazy. What do you guys think?

Art Student Hand-Illuminates, Binds a Copy of Tolkien’s Silmarillion
German art student Benjamin Harff decided for his exam at the Academy of Arts to do something only slightly ambitious — to hand-illuminate and bind a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion. It took him six months of work. In very 21st century elvish-monk style, he hand-illuminated the text which had been printed on his home Canon inkjet printer. He worked with a binder to assemble the resulting book. (Source)
