1:1 Model Kits

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Michael Johansson’s sculptures ‘some assembly required’ and ‘toys ‘r’ us’ see the swedish artist turn real forms of transport into 1:1 model kits. Pieces from each vehicle are fastened together by a welded tubular frame and painted a uniform color.

Toys ‘r’ us – Dinghy (scale 1:1, 2006)
‘A boat and related equipment are joined together in a welded metal frame. Everything is painted in a unifying plastic layer to resemble the surface of a model kit. The real boat is transformed into a model of itself, and its original purpose has given way to something else.’

Some Assembly Required – Crescent (scale 1:1, 2007)
‘As a child I was fascinated building models. I remember breaking off the pieces from the surrounding plastic sticks that were leftover from the casting process and subsequently gluing the pieces back together in the right order by following the instruction manual. A real bike is turned back into a space of imagination. By this I wanted to address the similarities between different contexts and spin concepts such as size and belonging.’

Sculptural Photography by Szymon Roginski

December 22, 2009 Leave a comment

Polish photographer Szymon Roginski teamed up with Lasia Korzeniecka to create this unusual collection of photo sculptures for fashion designer Ania Kuczynska. The photos were printed and then transformed into a variety of shapes and assembled back together to display the image. The photo sculptures were then re-photographed for the final pieces.

Photos which excite the human senses!

You can feel and hear the crops swaying around the model. Fantastic three-dimensional work which puts you in the photo’s location like never before!!

This fantastic creation is from German designer Felix Götze, who has created this rocking horse from old motorcycle parts. Apparently it’s for a little kid who is fascinated by choppers coming out of a workshop opposite his house. It also features pinstripe detail by artist Thomas Weber.

Audi Goodwood Monument 2009

July 14, 2009 Leave a comment

Yet another fantastic installation at this year’s Goodwood Festival Of Speed. This year the piece is to commemorate Audis centenary and features a curved section of track with a 2009 R8 V10 and a 1937 Auto Union Streamliner shooting into the ski. Designed by award winning sculptor Gerry Judah (who also did last year’s piece for Land Rover’s 60th anniversary), the structure is 35 metres high, weights 40 tonnes and took 12 men 4 weeks to construct. I have always loved to see what the new installation will be each year and I think this is another fantastic piece of art at the show. I can’t wait to see what is produced next year.
